After several years of hiding behind the environmentalist discourse, the now not-so-young Greta Thunberg has uncovered herself and in the last few days blamed the capitalist system for all the ills -real and imaginary- of the planet.
Specifically, Greta Thunberg has shown her opposition to the “oppressive” Western capitalist system, which she says is an “extreme system” that has resulted in climate issues.
During the presentation of her new book, which she has written using capitalist tools, will put on sale through capitalist means, and whose profits will swell her wealth, Greta Thunberg has assured that capitalism “is a system defined by colonialism, imperialism, oppression and genocide by the so-called global North to accumulate wealth that still shapes our current world order”.
One might think that her climate activism from an early age has caused Greta Thunberg to have missed too many history classes in school, and perhaps because of this, she is unaware of the dire consequences – both for the environment and for people – of the socialist system that is always proposed as an alternative to the free market.
But then one realizes that it is unfair to blame Greta’s stance on truancy because schools are usually centers of socialist and anti-capitalist indoctrination. So the reason must be something else.
What is becoming increasingly clear is why Greta Thunberg always blames climate change on the “North”, the “West” or “capitalism”, but seldom picks on, for example, China. The answer is obvious: because China ALREADY IS communist.
