Greta Thunberg is just acting out some dog and pony show using a blatant argument from authority to brow-beat people into following a particular line of action.

I mean that is literally all it is.

Greta Thunberg is just doing some dog and pony show where some actress uses a blatant argument from authority to brow-beat people into following a particular line of action.

It's not particularly advanced and it's really not very clever.

And I'm all out of bubblegum.
The thread should probably be moved to the general forum if this is what we're discussing. At least when it was old men complaining about her Marxist agenda it was sort of relevant.

You seem to have it all figured out, your views and ideas intrigue me.

Please teach us sheeple old wise one, for we do not see the truth.

How dare she point out that we have right royally fecked things up and aren't even doing much to slow the destruction, much less stop or reverse it. Obviously a Marxist plot to ... erm ... something to do with freedom.

Arguments from authority are how people function, no one can specialize in everything so what you do is find someone who is knowledgable and listen to them. If you're sick you go the doctor and listen to what they say, you don't enroll in medical school to find out seven years later that you have cancer, and only then if you have enough money to buy whatever equipment you need to do whatever test you need to do to detect cancer.

If you were trying to allude to fallacious arguments from authority then you obviously don't know what you're talking about, because that's not what she's doing.

How old is she?
At 17 I was out protesting against motorways being built on greenbelt, marching on downing Street against the criminal justice bill and generally being a pain in the arse for the authorities.
I had a feckin riot and loved every minute of it.
The time to do it is when you're a kid, you've no ties or responsibility to worry about.

I’m guessing we won’t get a more in depth reply to this. Hit and run posting.

I think she gets under the skin of these types of people because she talks about how her generation will write their history. Never sits right with them.

The fact she rickrolled the whole world brought a smile to my face. :)

Anyone angered or bemused by it are bona fida oldies at heart.

If only mark was still here to hear his opinion on Greta
He's got a Twitter account, and it's just as insane as you would expect. What's scary though is that he's got a few thousand followers who seem to think he actually knows what he's talking about (which, as we clearly established that time he read a graph backwards, he doesn't). The good news is that those followers are just more Mark's, they're actually irrelevant and will never amount to anything.
