You've no doubt heard about Climate Activist Greta Thunberg, and her recent emotional outburst in front of the U.N. on the lack of action by those in power in regards to solving what she calls a "climate crisis."
First off, I will say that children being interested in national, or worldwide issues is a good thing. Note that I said "interested" and not "involved." In an earlier article, I discussed the brilliant plan currently being implemented by those on the environmental left. Using children to tout your opinions, and to push for policy, is a great tactic.
We've seen how brilliant this tactic is when looking at the response from those on the left to those on the right criticizing young Greta. A child is a great messenger if you're pushing a controversial message. A child cannot be reasoned with. You cannot be mad at a child for his or her views on the world. You cannot critique their speaking ability or the logic and rationality behind their beliefs. After all, they're children.
Some would argue that this is how those on the left are seen in politics, child or not.
What I'd like to focus on is this. Greta Thunberg is a victim of mental abuse. Not by those who criticized her speech, but by those who put her in this position in the first place. She's been abused by those that told her she is going to die at an early age due to an impending climate catastrophe.
