Skip to comments.An Open Letter to Greta Thunberg. You are not a moral leader. But I will tell you what you are.

The truth, as one anonymous blogger aptly put it, is that your generation is unable to work up to forty hours per week without being chronically depressed and anxious. Its members cannot even decide if they want to be a boy or a girl, or both, or neither, or a they. They cannot eat meat without crying. I might add that your generation needs trigger warnings and safe spaces as pre-conditions for learning in school. Its members have a pathological need to be coddled and protected from the challenging realities of life. Your generation is the biggest demander and consumer of carbon spewing technological gadgets and devices. An hour without any of them and too many of you succumb to paralyzing lethargy. Your generation is the least curious and most insular set of individuals one has ever encountered. Your hubris extends so far that you think you have nothing to learn from your elders.
Yes, we have betrayed you: by capitulating the world of leadership to bored, attention-deficit children who spout bromides, platitudes and slogans that a rudderless and morally relativistic culture accepts because a significant number of its denizens have become intellectually bankrupt and morally lazy.
The logical endpoint of your ecological vision would see us living in primeval conditions eking out an existence in jungle swamps in which we would regard poisonous snakes and man-eating tigers as our moral equals. We would have to adapt ourselves to nature rather than adapt nature to meet our needs, like all members of civilized civilizations do. Your vision would see us foraging for mushrooms and plants without knowing which were inimical to our digestive systems. Under your system we would swelter from heat, die from rampant plagues and starvation because there will be no air-conditioning units

Don’t forget Lieawatha.
Greta Thunberg, you are still a highly ignorant child.
It is lost on her. She is a parrot and nothing more. There’s nothing there there.
The Tide Pod Squad just triggered.
I wonder if we would be better off if we didn’t have constant articles about Miss Thundberg. I doubt the MSM will allow her to disappear.
Great letter; Ayn Rand could have written it.
An ember of intellectual diversity:
“Jason D. Hill is professor of philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago”
Careful! They might hit you with their Participation Trophies, which tells them they are so special...barf.
Cow deer ewe!
Brainwashed high self esteemed know it all, that can’t do anything without breaking down. Thats what these societies are producing.
In my opinion Greta Is an eco-terrorist.
Fomenting governmental opresión and taxation by terrorizing people.
The people who call themselves progressive and pro-science want us to regress back to the stone age and give up everything that science has given us.
Great suffers from a mental illness. She is a tool however. She is no more responsible for her actions than a chain saw is for cutting down a tree. She is being used by others as her mental facilities - or lack there of, prevent her from seeing how she is being used....
Please note - Henrik Palmgren, founder and editor of Red Ice , documented Gretas connection to Swedish political circles, calling her a manufactured asset constructed by the very elites she claims to be fighting.
Greta's "fame" comes from the fact that she organized a school strike for climate on August 20, 2018, all by herself, or at least that was how it was portrayed in the main stream media.
Missing from that account was any mention of Ingmar Rentzhog, director of the organization known as Climate Change: We Dont Have Time, who just happened to be walking by the Swedish Parliament on the morning of August 20, 2018 and just happened to bump into Greta.8 Rentzhog was a graduate of Al Gores Climate Reality Project, who shared the stage at the Climate Parliament with Melania Ernman, who just happened to be Gretas mother.
Rentzhog had been informed of Gretas protest a week before by another Swedish climate activist. Far from being a loner, Greta was the flower of what Henrik called an incestuous circle of energy sector social democrats, in addition to being the product of four generations of social engineering in Sweden.
The truant brat is actually being programmed by her father. He is using her to promote his own agenda.
She crossed the Atlantic in a luxury yacht. I doubt that they all leaned over the side to poop in the ocean. I read that there was a generator on board.
Nah! These articles are at the minimum entertaining, and would be useful if her generation were to accidentally read one.
Greta Thunderburg could be a different person in 11 years. Y’never know!
Thanks for posting this.
Greta Thunberg, you are still a highly ignorant child.
This is very true. How many 17 year olds know everything?
Someone her age has no conception of why the world has evolved the way it has, with use of energy, or any other issue for that matter. .
People her age lack wisdom, and knowledge of how the world works.
While on her magical mystery tour of North America, she met with Justin Trudeau, and declared that “he’s not doing enough” on global warming. Trudeau happens to be on her side, he’s a true believer in global warming. It’s as if she thinks he can just rule by decree to enact policies on his own. And if he doesn’t then she gets pissed off. This reflects her utter lack of knowledge of how the world works, and how energy policies and other policies are derived in the first place.
But instead of trying to learn any of those complexities in the world, she simply shouts “how dare you” at all of us.
And we are supposed to be as shocked and awed as the media, in their bubbles in the New York / Washington axis, prop up the likes of her to push their favored causes.
