Kindergarten Activism : More Fodder For Climate and Crazies
Ya, sure! Who knows more about climate science than elementary school kinder?
"I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day," says Greta Thunberg
"After years of depression, eating disorders, and anxiety attacks, she finally receives a medical diagnosis: Asperger’s syndrome, high-functioning autism, and OCD. She also suffers from selective mutism‐which explains why she sometimes can’t speak to anyone outside her closest family. When she wants to tell a climate researcher that she plans a school strike on behalf of the environment, she speaks through her father."

The book Scenes from the Heart ("Scener från Hjärtat," 2018) recounts these medical difficulties and the events that led to Greta Thunberg’s now-famous "school strike for climate," in which hundreds of thousands of children have refused to attend school to protest about government inaction over climate change. We are offered a story of "a family in crisis and a planet in crisis"‐two phenomena that are presented as inextricably linked. The book posits that oppression of women, minorities, and people with disabilities stem from the same overarching root problem as climate change: an unsustainable way of life. The family’s private crisis and the global climate crisis, the authors argue, are simply symptoms of the same systemic disorder."

Do read this article by Paulina Neuding, to avoid being surprised when the next 'school strike' near you is for gay rights of 6th graders.

It highlights how professional activists and her family have capitalized the OCD of a mentally challenged little girl, it also opens a window into just who and what are these individual activists seemingly challenging status quo just because they can. While she counts down the days to her nobel prize, her parents negotiate $ million book contracts for the girl who was used to bring civil disobedience activism to junior high.

Miss Thunberg has also found support from the likes of AOC since her brand of activism supplements the Green New Deal, institutionalizes 'hooky' and teaches student unionism to children. More fodder for the maniacal left, more futures to destroy, more placards and fists in the air and more half-educated voters with activist mobocracy as the new norm.

#1 Maybe if more people laughed in her face, she'd finally seek the psychiatric help she so desperately needs. Does her country do lobotomies? She's a good candidate, along with her parents.

#2 "I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day," says Greta Thunberg

Why exactly is feeling panic and fear the goal? I'd rather live my life without those things, thank you. And if that is what you want for me, well, I don't want them for myself..or for you, either. Grow up.

#4 I think if I lived in Sweden I'd welcome a little warming.

#5 I think the greater villains are the media, the latch-on professional activists, politicians and union academics using the quirk of a mentally retarded girl and her parents-in-denial to progress their own agendas. She's the next nobel laureate, after malala yousafzai. For no reason other than she can't sleep or study or let anyone else either.
