Not a fan of the Atlantic. It is ironic in my view that a magazine responsible for the ongoing gender divide is writing articles critical of it.

I usually like and look forward to your podcasts. I found this guest initially interesting, however her responses to the the last few questions devolved into a word salad of wokism that defied logic

From a loquacious ax grinding feminazi, who never had an unexspressed thought, to another barren lonely spinster by way of reproductive intersectionality, reproductive justice, interdisciplinary holistic feminist technique and non-bianary theater artists.

No wonder.

To me the question is not one of fertility (fertility doesn’t matter when no one is getting laid), its a question of priorities and vision for having a family. Liberalism (the YOLO version) said you can work and live anywhere, career is the only priority and you’ll be young forever. That version gave birth (pun intended) to a generation of disregulated marxists who are so pessimistic about life they’ve decided to save the planet by intentionally not having kids.

Her solution (no surprise here) is to enlarge the welfare state to provide more services so women can then head back to the office for the next deadline or cocktail party and let big gov raise the kids I guess. That sounds like a fantastic liberal plan for healthy, integrated children and families.

How about stop digging? A godless society has no interest in family life and does not prioritize child rearing. Since God has been chased from society the sustained community support and guidance required to help couples develop a vision for family life has disappeared. The math is simple, we don’t need the Norwegians to tell us the answer.

The only thing said that makes any sense is spend less time online . People tend to spnd time online in echo chambers , get oyut and meet REAL people of all types , that would be a start . I limit time online to 1 or 2 hours a day at most , unless I have some special project . I have noticed people are much different in real life than they are online
