Image: This is the face of a racist politician. He looks and talks like many other politicians across the globe, past and present.
What do Brenton Tarrant and Greta Thunberg have in common?
Like most youth, they can see only the future ...
And that's because they have very little past of their own and are generally bored by history.
The future they see is the one constructed for them by the media. As a result, they can easily become pawns in a cynical power game being played by business and politicians the world over. The game of "power" and "money" -- interchangeable terms.
See: NASA's Climate Kids.
NASA has created a special website to educate children about "climate change".
These kids surround themselves with plastic; they especially can't live without their smartphones. Their throw-away culture is polluting the earth, but they're being taught that the problem is "carbon" (the substance that plant life thrives on) because it distracts from the very real earth/people killers.
And what about 5G pollution? And especially what about the massive pollution caused by war?
The New Zealand shooter, perpetrator of the most recent of many racist massacres, presents in his manifesto a version of what countless other mass killers have said in one form or another since time began, and which no doubt is what prompted poet/philosopher Santayana to observe that: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
The answer to the old song: "What's the Matter With Kids Today" [YouTube], has always been that they want to put their own stamp on the world; be a catalyst for "change" - no, not just "a" catalyst, but "the" catalyst.
Politicians take full advantage of the longing for "change":
Brainyquote: Barack Obama -- "We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
Obama "changed" roughly seven nations by bombing them to smithereens. And, as the dearly departed William Blum wrote: If you like Obama, you'll love Trump.
The reason nothing ever changes -- not even clothing fashions, which are free to draw on the past for their "fresh new look" -- is that people have short memories, and have been brainwashed by the media to seek novelty. Their main objectives are to own the latest of everything, to have seen the latest movie, to drive the latest model of car, to copy the latest hairstyle, to grow a beard, to shave their head... It's not their idea; it's someone else's. They want to be like the rich and famous.
But one big "change" today's youth don't want is "climate", and they expect politicians to take care of that for them. Today, as I write this, kids are marching in the streets:
CNN: Kids around the world plan to skip school this Friday to demand action on climate change
Greta Thunberg has fashioned herself (has been fashioned?) as the same kind of catalyst for "change" that the New Zealand shooter fancies himself to be.
She rages against whatever or whoever it is that's causing "climate change", while the 28 year old shooter's manifesto rages against “Islamic invaders” who are “occupying European soil.”
And they both believe what the shooter writes:
Yep, those darling kids are helping to raise our fear levels to a much higher pitch than the shooter can produce, because there have been so many shooters since 9/11 it's hard to keep track of them, and besides, it happened to Muslims, eh? (I say this, because, so far, I'm seeing only "white" faces in these crowds of school kids.)
9/11 as a catalyst for change [YouTube] “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,” John Perkins
The New Zealand shooter, Brenton Tarrant, knew he wouldn't have the advantage of TV to film his protest, so he reportedly attached a camera to his helmet and livestreamed his own event on Facebook. NYPost.
And he is publicly, though indirectly, supported by a New Zealand politician who fosters hatred:
NZHerald: NZ politico publicly blames 49 victims of shooter
It appears that the politician sees all Muslims as fanatics. That sounds a bit fanatical to me. And of course, the shooter was entirely fanatical.
I wonder if the kids out protesting "climate change" will take a moment to remember the slain New Zealand Muslims.
