Kids striking for climate is yet another hijacking of the minds of the youth to serve a different political cause.
I am not saying that we shouldn’t do something about climate; nor that it is any more or less important than our challenges with pollution and disease.
But hearing children say “why should we educate ourselves, when we don’t have a future”, I can’t help getting flashbacks to the manipulations put upon us back when I was a kid.
And there is a future. Most likely that future will be much better than the present but with different challenges.
Manipulating our children into thinking they don’t have a future is only in the interest of the radical political groupings, left and right. And it is absolutely in their interest to have a mass of uneducated activists.
What would be in the interest of our children? To get the best education available and learn to better themselves.
