Greta Thunberg, 15, the voice of 2018

[The most important speeech of 2018. Initiator of global school children strikes ‘autistic’ Greta Thunberg tells it like it is: we cannot play by the rules anymore because they haven’t worked and the rules themselves need to change. The Truth of the Child cutting through the ‘adult’ denial. Stand aside, ‘adults’. Thank you Greta, and now how about an adult ‘General Strike for Life’ and ‘Extinction Rebellion’ in all countries, as I’ve suggested for many years?]

One Response to “Greta Thunberg, 15, the voice of 2018”

  1. I agree with you, Peter. I haven’t heard any more important speech this year either. Greta puts us as a society and a civilisation in our place, and it’s very uncomfortable. But instead of doom and gloom or utter despair (although these would be appropriate too), she has turned not to “hope”, but to action – and hope will follow. This is the wisdom of a mind uncluttered by too much “news” or denial of the facts, and she cuts through to the task at hand, and comes up with the School Strike for the Climate. And speaks to the youth of the rich world, and gets an enthusiastic, active response, even in distant, dumbed-down Australia. There is hope after all, because there is Greta and young and old people who know she is right. We have to support the movement she has created, and support the young ones to start the new school year with more strike action – which should be matched by adult action, as you say. Brendan
