It's not just high cost of living; it's also because having kids fucking sucks. And having a lot of kids fucking sucks even more. When sane people have a choice, they choose to have one or two kids because that choice doesn't wreck a woman's body, and it gives both parents the possibility of still having a life.Exactly what is Jordan Peterson's political standing? He doesn't seem like a progressive conservative to me. The man wants fiscal responsibility and less government spending but at the same time is advocating this weird social conservatism which is waning heavily here in Canada and does not match well with fiscal conservatism in our current economic structure in Canada. People here are too indebted to have large families like this guy, at his basis wants to promote. It's not feminism or transgenders killing the traditional family structure it's high cost of living.
If you want less government spending it's not a good idea to keep pushing abortion restrictions. These types don't seem to understand once the kids are born to an unprepared mother or two low income parents it's going to require more government assistance (which types like Peterson's moan about. ''Oh clean up your own mess''). And not to mention the strain on the foster care system which is badly, badly underfunded in Canada.
But of course Peterson goes off on tangents about feminists and trans people as the problem destroying both Canadian and U.S society - seems like a weird diversion technique to me to keep people ignorant about incoming economic collapse.
