Greta Thunberg: adults who attack her ‘must feel threatened’

Greta Thunberg: adults who attack her ‘must feel threatened’
https://www.independent.co.uk/environmen...reddit.com

I've never seen a more childish response to a very real and much need reality check, given to us by a young girl, because adults are fucking morons and have been destroying the Earth for the past hundred years.

To ne honest, if adults have not been destroying the earth for the past hundred years, on average people alive today, including those like Greta, would likely have life expectancies a couple of decades shorter.

Eventually, because we've been destroying the Earth for the past hundred years, we'll have life expectancies of 0. No problem Tongue
"Our attitudes towards things like race or gender operate on two levels. First of all, we have our conscious attitudes. This is what we choose to believe. These are our stated values, which we use to direct our behavior deliberately ... But the IAT [Implicit Association Test] measures something else. It measures our second level of attitude, our racial attitude on an unconscious level - the immediate, automatic associations that tumble out before we've even had time to think. We don't deliberately choose our unconscious attitudes. And ... we may not even be aware of them. The giant computer that is our unconscious silently crunches all the data it can from the experiences we've had, the people we've met, the lessons we've learned, the books we've read, the movies we've seen, and so on, and it forms an opinion." - Malcolm Gladwell

Yeah, the increase in the human life span is a double-edged sword. Sure, we're living longer, but that means there's more of us, and that means more people living long enough to create more people, more people to find new and inventive ways to exhaust our resources (and siphon them off for themselves), and more fucking people contributing to turning society into a behavioral sink.

Honestly, the more I look at it, the more convinced I become that Greta Thunberg's fatal flaw is not that she thinks something should be done, but that she thinks it can be done. At this point, it's all over but the crying. Apparently, she's on the autism spectrum, and she actually credits it as being a driver for her activism, but ironically, in my case, it's driven me to a different conclusion...

Bradley Nowell has seen the truth and stated it clearly in this song:




We're only gonna die from our own arrogance
That's why we might as well take our time





This could be driven by my having a much shittier childhood, reading a lot of history, and having depression in addition to ASD and OCD, but clearly not everyone's from Stockholm.
I was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world is mad.

Had we not been destroying the earth for the past hundred years, our life expectancy will still not escaping eventually becoming zero.   The difference is when that threatens we can be fairly certain we will likely have no way of dodging or delaying it.

But our destroying of the earth for the past one hundred years had not entirely been in vain.   It was a heavy price, but for that price we did purchase a sizable stock of industrial, economic and scientific capital, and these offer some reasonable hope that when the end of our life expectancy would otherwise come, we can dodge it or significantly postpone it.

It is can only be seen as double edged sword upon final analysis if it is not in itself considered a dominant desirable good.

We are not destroying the Earth, it will be here long after we have gone. All we are doing is causing a temporary disruption, it will probably sort itself out in a few tens of thousands of years, it's just that we won't be here to see it.
The meek shall inherit the Earth, the rest of us will fly to the stars.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud ..... after a while you realise that the pig likes it!
