Jeez Bishop, learn the word 'succinct'.

Anyway, Fatboy Slim sampled her UN speech:

I hope she's arranged to visit the actual tar sands, ideally with some of her new Native comrades. The visual of those mines alone is worth a thousand death-metal-worthy words.

I don't think it's healthy for somebody this young to be getting so much media attention and scrutiny. Positive or negative, it feels like people are just using a child to attain personal ideological victories.

I watched a few clips of her speak and there seemed to be a darkening of the circles under her eyes as the interviews went on. Probably very exhausted from having cameras and microphones shoved in her face, people constantly trying to "catch" her saying something wrong, as well as overzealous supporters draining her energy.

I don't think that's healthy for anybody, but a kid makes me feel even worse about it. Yeah, I sound very moralistic but whatever. It's true. This isn't a good way to live and we should stop doing this kind of thing.

With the advent of the Internet, a large dose of unfettered public exposure is dangerous like never before.

Social media has had its car crashes - particularly the problem with photographic and video representation is that people's likeness becomes a mass commodity, which is a very personal sort of publishing, which is novel, especially in the context of digital networked media.

Kiki Kannibal was one of the first casualties of real-time video media: https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/cu ... ire-66507/

The problem is that if a small minority of people decide to make your life a misery [particularly if they work for a government agency or large oil company, and have significant psywar resources], the potential level of aggressive privacy invasion and the cost of securing your entire life to A-list anti-paparazzi levels is not to be underestimated.

Greta Thunberg's sister has (no doubt) been part of the collateral damage.

The contemporary twitter-insta-facebox-sky-CNN-newscorp media circus has some significant occupational hazards - I do hope that Trumpo is recognised as one of the shining lights of the ongoing social media disaster, but unlike pretty much everybody else he's insulated by a very expensive secret service / military security patrol, and it's much harder surviving that sort of exposure if you are in an environment where there are no degrees of separation betweeen the general public and the publisher, via the internet. It's easy to become public property and get paid precisely zero for it in the internet era.

As a counter-example... can you visualise Robert Louis Stevenson's face? it used to be easy to maintain your privacy while publishing - and arguably it still is possible if you know how to play your cards well.

Particularly in the case of stalkers, and those one-in-a-million dedicated creeps, ask anybody who has had the dubious privilege of A-list promoted celebrity what it's like when you wake up to find another dedicated and thoroughly delusional obsessively full-time stalker in your bedroom/kitchen.
