I mean, in this case, even Greta acknowledges that she's a "symbol". It's not her that's important, its raising awareness for climate change. And she certainly has done a damn good job of doing that. (Besides, I'd say that most of a person's real influence on the world is symbolic, especially as far as the type of people nominated for Person of the Year)
@cipher42 Good for her. The real issue being why a major media outlet - and the public more broadly - is falling all over themselves over a symbol, the relevance of whose symbolism is not immediately apparent.If this is a serious issue, then address it seriously. With prudent language and sound science. If this is all about feelings and "think of the children" and all the rest, then the young lady is adequately suitable. My argument is not with Ms. Thunberg. It is with so-called adults who substitute empty symbolism and feelings for serious analysis.As I say, my preference is a world where adults raise children and are not raised by them.
And Hitler if I remember correctly
Why? Is it her you dislike, or the message she brings?
@juicyjessie just her condition
Does not mean she should be institutionalised. She just has the balls to stand up and be counted, where even adults would not go.
@juicyjessie yeah but people with that condition can't even get married, or even cohabitate to begin with, um that's a major milestone in this world, the fact that some people can't achieve that is utterly pathetic, if autism doesn't affect someone's physical appearance, then how come they can't get dates, it's because they have other eccentricities to them others don't even have the time or patience to figure it out,

Climate is always changing.
Not the way it is now. This is all up! This has been argued too much already. No point in continuing it.
you know like 15 years ago people in the uk used to say that a lot about, oh im not so sure its real and then oh well it happens regularly etc'... the thing is while many here were saying that most americans still denied it was happening at all so maybe just maybe in 15 years they will catch up with how we thing today just in time to help us in a last ditched attempt to at least slow it down again
I don't buy them either. My wallet and I are good friends.
"the power of youth" lol yeahNazis used children to push their agenda so that they could not be criticized for spreading propaganda. Many things that happened in Germany 30s-40s is reoccurring now in China and America terms of political and societal manipulation and surveillance
So involving children in the far lefts agenda is good? Wow 😳
@Gsm24diecast This ain't the "far left"s agenda, it's the agenda of anyone who would like to still have a livable planet in a couple hundred years. Interesting that you're not among those people.
Your liberal logic makes me cringe 😬
