Skip to comments.Greta Thunberg: A Living Explanation of the Left
Posted on 01/02/2020 11:35:23 AM PST by conservative98
There are two primary reasons it is so difficult, if not impossible, to define leftism. One is that it ultimately stands for chaos:
-- Open borders.
-- "Nonbinary" genders.
-- Nonsensical and scatological "art."
-- "Music" without tonality, melody or harmony.
-- Drag Queen Story Hour for 5-year-olds.
-- Rejection of the concept of better or worse civilizations.
-- Rejection of the concept of better or worse art.
-- Removal of Shakespeare's picture from a university English department because he was a white male.
-- The end of all use of fossil fuels -- even in transportation (as per the recent recommendation by the head of the U.N. World Meteorological Organization).
-- The dismantling of capitalism, the economic engine that has lifted billions of people out of abject poverty.
And much more.
The other major reason it is impossible to define leftism is that it is emotion-based. Leftism consists of causes that give those who otherwise lack meaning something to cling to for meaning.
Two things about Greta Thunberg, Time magazine's 2019 person of the year, embody these explanations.
With regard to chaos, here is what Greta Thunberg wrote at the beginning of the month: "The climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice and of political will. Colonial, racist and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fuelled it. We need to dismantle them all."
Greta Thunberg, like all leftists, seeks to dismantle just about everything. As former President Barack Obama said five days before the 2008 election, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."
As regards emotion and meaning, the Guardian reports, this is what Thunberg's father just told the BBC:

What a year... I wont even try to summarise it - but nothing would have been possible without your support. So thank you!
This coming decade humanity will decide its future. Lets make it the best one we can.
We have to do the impossible.
So lets get started.

I'll summarize it. $1m. From a pedo sugar daddy.
The post-Judeo-Christian world the left has created has left a vast number of the West's citizens, especially more and more young people, with no meaning. This Grand-Canyon-sized hole is filled by leftist causes.Leftists are all miserable, chronically unhappy people. Yet they are living in the most abundant, easiest, most comfortable era in all of human existence. People in the west have zero unmet wants -- we are all housed, fed, kept warmed and cooled, and clothed to a degree unfathomable by people living as recently as 100 years ago.
The fact is life is better, safer and more affluent, and offers more opportunities for more people, than ever before in history. Just about all emotionally stable, mature people should be walking around the West almost delirious at their good fortune. Americans in particular should feel this way. But leftists (again, as opposed to many liberals) are not usually emotionally stable and are certainly not mature. That is why depression among young Americans (and perhaps Swedes) is at the highest levels ever recorded.
Let me know when Scoldilocks starts living in a cave with no fire.
Zero impact, right?
He’s exactly correct.
Everyone has a religion to which they adhere. Most liberals are earth-worshiping socialists bent on eliminating white Christians.
Too bad her boat didn’t sink in shark infested waters. Dang.
Greta, the Scandinavian Brat, reveals that she is anti-free market and for totalitarian, fascist, confiscatory dictatorships.
That’s a lot on her plate, for a 16 year old. She should not be going on TV and crying and yelling at adults. She needs to find a 16 year old Swedish pojke and do what normal Swedes do.
Chilling. Good memes as usual, BTW.
Progressivism is a religion of a Humanism and Cultural Marxism.
It has temples, doctrine, rituals, priests and priestesses.
Its members are evangelical zealots, with violence being acceptable.
Its goal is the same as the muzzies world rule by their kind.
”Everyone has a religion to which they adhere. Most liberals are earth-worshiping socialists bent on eliminating white Christians.”
So true. Liberals want everyone to be tan or darker. Eliminate vanilla and make everyone the same.
Thinking out loud again? (I do it all the time)
The little retard needs to sit down and shut up
[[i.e. most people outgrow it in their early 20s as their brain fully develops from a state of being mostly emotion driven.]]
Liberals are stunted
[[Let me know when Scoldilocks starts living in a cave with no fire.]]
Oh come on, that would be ridiculous- unlike the left’s doing away with all fossil fuels and transportation, and farting ANIMALS to haul us around with, and electricity, and rationing water, and preventing exercise because it makes people sweat more, and and and
[[Liberals want everyone to be tan or darker.]]
Liberals got outraged at Kim Kardashian for being tan- accused her of blackface lol
