    inaccurate given the difference in power held, but the parallels in that they both expressed desires to implement a massive change in social structure through any means possible and that any detractors must be "put against the wall" in an authoritarian way
    Ultimately she is not real Hitler, but rather a propaganda tool for the real Hitler hiding in the shadows.
    But the reason people use her image is simple, she is the face of a movement designed to massively attack the way of life of billions of people for the worse, including myself and my children etc

    Shes to be taken as serious as anything or anyone else from Sweden. No one cares about their stupid utopian dreams and no one takes them serious. Sweden is nothing more than a cruel joke to the sheep that live there.

    I whole heartedly agree!

    This is why the powers used a kid to do their dirty work so no one can attack her statements and also her.

    Haven’t read this thread because idgaf about this issue, but fwiw agree that she is a pawn used for a purpose. In Australia, the ABC has trotted out children on its flagship political shows (all hard left) absolutely parroting out activist talking points. The children, being so young, cannot have a nuanced view about the material and thus are captive to the brainwash.

    The point is if you shove a child in front of an audience the fact that it is a child means there is a social taboo in tackling the material the child talks about in adult terms, which includes taking down a fool. You wouldn’t make a child cry would you? This is how leftists craft their modern game when the rationale for their agenda is itself weak, so weak it needs to resort to children as human shields.

    I have seen the same stuff in Canberra, the writing of schoolchildren on the billboard in the old Parliament, begging to do something about climate change. Did they get these ideas from their own sapling minds? Hardly.

    The right way to teach children is to teach them to think for themselves as this is how they will become the leaders of the future and hopefully deliver a better world to come. Massive indoctrination is greedy, shortsighted, ultimately barren.

    To give an example, Sweden is only second to South Africa in rape. The reasons can’t even be properly examined in the media. This is due to the same ideology that led to the problem, discussion of which is similarly verboten. Yet unlike South Africa, Sweden postures itself as strongly feminist. Go figure. If they taught critical thinking to children in Sweden, maybe the outcome would be less misanthropic and they would think more about who is doing this to them and to whose benefit?

    Unfortunately for us the fires have come at a good time for her and her gestapo. Social suicide to push too hard against it at the moment, for the younger ones at least. I’m already creating a lot of tension in otherwise tight circles. People I didn’t think were ‘like that’ suddenly manifest deep resentment to the conversation, and start with the personal jabs.

    In america children are paraded as victims of gun violence.
    It's exactly the same thing and most people dont buy it. Easy to see the agenda with that.

    Whenever there is an accident or plane crash or somepink it is always "there were 3 children burned to death in the plane crash."
    [email protected]@K the 250 other adults who got burned to a crisp, they are just collateral damage.
    250 adults don't sell newspapers. _JOHNLGAL T.

    I started this thread and fully support the kid’s initiative, however I can not let a good meme pass me by. However, it seems it may be over the top so I’ll delete it.

    The latest rumor running around Europe is based on this photo of Greta Thunberg and her mother living above normal European standards of living, sitting in posh or elegant and stylishly luxurious chairs. and we do not know how they are earning a living when her mother quit her career to save the planet because she had to travel for work.

    ^ the Environmental Kuznet’s Curve. Once an individual’s income exceeds what is required in providing basic needs the individual can look toward satisfying her higher order desires, such as flash furniture or environmental awareness.

    The ECC can also help provide an explanation as to how the burden of improperly considered environmental policies eg Paris agreement are borne by those who can least afford it. Basically those only a short distance along the x axis are disadvantaged compared to those further along ie higher income earners.

    Once she starts to properly understand her own knowledge and the philosophy she espouses, her integrity of self will eventually critically analyse those around her, including herself, and it will eat her alive. It’s not an enviable position and this is why people are directing their criticisms at the parents as abusers. For now they can pacify her, but the longer they do it the worse it will snap back. Ouch.

    Citing instances of weather extremes is probably not a sound argument to either use in favour of climate change nor to debunk it. There is a difference between 'weather' and 'climate". :)

    Both climate change denialists and climate change disciples are guilty of that fallacy.
