Her UN address is the Gettysburg Address, the I Have a Dream, the Giant Leap for Mankind speech of our era.

Truth to power.

She gets a lot of hate on the internet. This must be some "trying hard to look cool" smartassery hype maybe, to throw shit on a decent little girl.

Agreed. Regardless of whether or not you agree with her views on climate change (which I do, for the most part), some of the trolling she's received - much of it focused on her age, appearance and general demeanour rather than on what she's actually saying - has been disgraceful. She has ageism, sexism and ableism working against her (the latter of which I recognise all too well being a fellow aspie). Nonetheless she's a tough cookie and I doubt she'll wilt. Not Crap.

Fox News corpse-faced freak Michael Knowles calls her a "mentally ill swedish child", yet has no objection to a mentally ill American child molester being president. And Trump's mental illness, which is pretty obviously dementia, actually has bearing on whether he's competent to do his job.

Great article.

Greta Thunberg is the most important person in the world. There are politicians and public figures with more power and influence. There are people of all kinds who are more well known. But Thunberg has done more than any other human being on our ailing planet to bring a particular argument of existential importance—an argument far more difficult to accept than a mere demand for “climate action”—before the masses for our consideration. And we aren’t really listening.


...

Thunberg’s activism was ready-made for superficial and inspirational news stories about a new generation of climate activists, and those stories have made her an interesting vessel for a set of truly radical propositions. It’s hard to imagine an academic calling for an end to economic growth being openly praised by American politicians the way that Thunberg has been. But Thunberg gets that praise only because her youth allows politicians and the press to flatten her image. For their purposes, Thunberg isn’t a precocious advocate for a new way of thinking about society, but an instrument of performative self-flagellation. The powerful nod vigorously when Thunberg castigates them, not in agreement with what she says must be done, but in the hopes that nodding might be considered an acceptable substitute. This is an iteration of the guilt suffused throughout liberal politics, which often seems better suited to producing tears and slogans than genuine change.

It must be a cultural context thing but I can't see why OP's "wording" has sent the foriisphere into such a dizzying tizz of frumpy rage? This forum really is an uptight and funless place. Little surprise the poor fucken site is resigned to a "2 members online" scenario.

Words are fun. OP is fuckign around with words. Are they really THAT fucking offensive to the cognescentii around here?

Hang in there, OP! PM me if you want to join my Hated Fucken Cunts of EA Support Group!

People do go on about her Aspergers a lot. Who cares? It's irrelevant. And her age... she's young, but she's not an infant. She's old enough to hold her own, and she does. She is a rational human being and a cool girl.

Which is exactly what she has been saying herself.

I think it's 2 or 3 people who commented. You may be exaggerating slightly.

Aren't there literally thousands of other places online where you can call people retards or whatever and everybody yuks along with you? Why not hang there?

That is quite the extrapolation you've made there.

You're rather undermining your own point when you follow through with the ol' "so why don't you fuck off"

That many supposedly grown adults can't engage with Thunberg's platform without resorting to ad hominem b.s. should tell you she's on to something.

Greta Thunberg is a visionary, but this poll is bush leagues rubbish. Have some class.
