What We Should Talk About When We Talk About Thunberg

September 30, 2019

I will never tire of the spectacle of centrist liberals posting adoring pics of Greta Thunberg completely ignorant of the fact that they are the very source of her anger and disappointment.

She is disgusted with our centrism and desire to meet death halfway.

The idea that climate apocalypse can be avoided by incremental change at this late date or that carbon tax credits will save the planet is as absurd as a guy trying to sell you solar panels and a Tesla 50 years into Earth’s sci fic dystopia.

But Greta is easy to patronize because she is a cute 16-year-old after all not some loudmouth Jew.

You can see the SANTA CLAUSIFICATION of MLK happening to Greta in real time in the press and among world leaders as they try to defang her and make her into an empty cuddly doll.

Instead what we should see when we look at Greta Thunberg is not a cute precocious 16-year-old standing up for a cause but for people of my generation, our own obsolescence.

One way or another
