Greta Thunberg's climate change speech

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

There, i fixed it for you.
Do not put your words in my mouth, H-8

So, we can blame the kids now - for the economic collapse of the west, the decay of its moral values and work ethic, and the rise of China.
Holy Flock, i wonder who bought up the little bastards?? They sure didn't do very good job. nor set a very attractive role model, it seems...

for whose benefit?
i'd say young people (and potentially everyone) have a much clearer view of how the system really works

and have decided it's shit
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Nothing is new under the sun.

What i mean is young people of the west have been late to the party. What they want has already been tried and rejected in the 20th century by asian young kids. Why do you think many asians have been trying so hard to escape to capitalist America for the last 60 years? Vaccination against left ideas comes at a cost of millions of lives lost and unimaginable suffering. It may be it is the West’s turn now.

High context thinking. Quite common globally.

True, they brought up a predictable, non free thinking, brainwashed generation of lemmings instead. :plus1:

In terms of doing business that beats brainwashed uneducated western kids, who, if they studied history, would know where those ideas will take them. But their senior manipulators would not tell them.

Strange when I was in China last year I met so many kids trying to imitate western style. They called themselves cutesy western names and danced to western music. Not so different after all!!
My entire life can be summed up in one sentence:
"Well that didnt go as planned".

Did they take puberty blockers, go massively in student loan debt and burn down the Wendy's? That's the real Western style.

Sniggering at Greta and snarling at the the kids.
yawn
..anyway, this kind of petty flack and static is at the margins these days.
The real battle front is a million miles away and the tide is definitely shifting the kid's way.

Sorry, but you/us old dinasours are already freeze dried dead, bogged solid in the sparkling salt pans and baking naked under a sizzling noon day sun.
In cactus country. (so to be speak)
