If it isn’t Brexit, it’s that Greta Thunberg one and her little “strikes”.
Ask any kid if they would fancy a day bunking off school and making a Bank Holiday weekend even longer. Yeah. Right!
So thousands of kids head off into their nearest city for a bit of craic. I wonder how many of ’em have done any study on the subject of climate change, apart from the indoctrination imposed by the System? I would hazard a guess at none.
I read an interesting piece yesterday – “The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg” over on “Life on an Alien Planet”. It’s interesting stuff, though it comes as no surprise. Do read.
When I was in school I was brainwashed on the subject of religion. Nowadays they are brainwashed on a clatter of subjects – climate, “healthy eating”, and of course smoking. Seven and eight year olds are having sleepless nights worrying that they are all going to drown or starve in a few years time, or in my case, that their grandparents will die a horrible death at some point because of a bit of tobacco.
It’s one good thing about this “strike” today: it’s one less day of indoctrination.
