Thunberg Thunder

Can’t apologise enough, dear worst-reader. You know, apologise for being who/what I am. Born of a grand idear but set to die by the/my (own) hand of über-stupid in the collective body of a generation. Indeed. So it is to be a baby-boomer from a once great nation-state that has so willingly and wantonly turned into the LAND OF FREE TO BE STUPID. #Trump.

But so much negativity, dear worst-writer. Why so much negativity? We know you care about $hit.

Well, dear worst-reader, it is hard to wake up to reality. A reality where the likes of Greta Thunberg is not conceivable in my beloved & missed united mistakes of #Americant. And I mean conceive in the most literal sense. Oh how such a thought hurts, don’t you know. I mean. Ain’t that a question worth asking: why is it #Americant can’t give the world a Greta Thunberg? Well. I’ll tell you why it can’t. Just look at what happened to Occupy Wall Street. Or just look at what happens to groups or individuals that try to take a stand against money and/or rampant anti-intellectualism that is #Americant. Forgetting who killed the Kennedy’s again? For you know, the police-state will shoot you down. And the supporters of such violence will go about the business of money, money, money galore. But before things get convoluted.

I’m not sure what I dig most about Greta Thunberg. Is it the fact that she has a voice heard ’round the world, which, perhaps, I’m jealous of (at 55) because I’ll never realise my dream of traversing the Atlantic in a sailboat while spewing truth, justice and Superwomanism? Or is it that she’s from a little budding country where the girls are so unbelievably gorgeous but also stronger than a ball & chain decorated in Barbie dolls and Disney? No. The thing that I dig most about Greta is how stupid, ugly, disgusting (mostly) white men of the fail-upwards western world react to her. What a great thing to witness.

You go Greta!

Rant on.
