It is critical to remember that hysterias — such as Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, “endemic and systemic racism in America,” the climate“crisis” in America and the “rape culture” on American college campuses — are to the Left what oxygen is to biological life. No oxygen, no life; no hysteria, no Left.
And especially children: If you can’t sell your hysteria to adults, try kids. And that is what the Left has done. After all, no one is as malleable or as easily indoctrinated as children. Consider this: If the Left didn’t tell them the world is going to end, they wouldn’t worry about it. They’d be enjoying their young lives, maybe even learning to appreciate that they live in the freest country at the most prosperous time in human history. Instead, thanks to leftists (who are children in adult bodies), they live in their grip of “existential eco-anxiety.”
Just look at this latest despicable mockery done by Greta Thunberg. Just how inspiring or even persuasive you find Greta’s speeches and overall activism likely depends on where you stand on the political spectrum. There are plenty of politicians and regular voters claiming to be inspired by her words and passion. There are also lots of observers expressing general alarm at what they see as an indoctrinated child being coerced by adults to make their political arguments with her youth as a shield from any criticism.
This is but one more way in which the Left abuses children (along with telling them they are neither boys nor girls but whatever they choose to be; teaching them contempt for their country; and depriving them of the greatest source of morality, meaning, community, and happiness).
It’s depressing, and it’s frightening.
Edit: Nobody objects to a greener future. The objection is to forced coercion to give up liberty and the free market to a leftist controlled big government.
Sound familiar?: “You NEED protection for the greater good. Otherwise the world will end and you will die. Let us control every part of your life, and extort protect money (exorbitant taxes) from you for it. Come on, What’s the worst that could happen if we changed our ways due to global warming, real or not? Cleaner air? Cleaner oceans? Do the right thing! 😡”
Edit 2: Let’s say at school there is a thug who is bullying you but he is promising a green future if you agree to get bullied, give him your lunch everyday and pay him protection money. Will you do it? “the worst case is a greener planet, while by doing nothing the worst case is a dying planet. It makes sense.” Really? The left is that bullying scum. Try to understand. I have simplified it as much as I can. Think, don’t be sheep.
Is kids are becoming hysterical, I think it's justified. Maybe the adults will pay attention finally.
