I don’t know how to tell you this, Greta, but welcome to the world. If you think what they did to your childhood is bad, I suggest you strap in for them screwing up your adulthood, your prospects for raising a family in safety, your retirement and any aspirations you may ever have. Trust me, the planet won’t be in your top 20 concerns by the time the show really gets going.
All this pre-supposes, of course, that she continues to subscribe to this pathetic version of the world where she has no agency. And it overlooks the fact that if anyone has responsibiity for the state of her childhood, it’s the parents who have scared her half to death with tales of environmental armageddon, and subsequently allowed this unfortunate girl to make a total fool of herself on the global stage, dancing to the tune of this very global leadership she purports to castigate.
I don’t know if I wish dawning realisation on her, because when it comes, it won’t be pleasant for her.
