The end of the world is neigh, Greta wants you to panic

Greta has no doubts, but we should

No teenager is more freakishly influential than Greta Thunberg, the deeply disturbed messiah of the global warming movement.

Her influence is about to grow even more outsized and not just because the 16-year-old Swede has been nominated for the Nobel prize.

Thunberg has announced she’s finally going to the United States, the last bastion of the heathen, to preach the global warming faith to the Americans.

Of course, she’s going by racing yacht, because she refuses to fly and heat the planet with an aeroplane’s global warming gasses.

That typical refusal to compromise is guaranteed to help create another round of frantic media hype for Thunberg, who is one of the most astonishing Messianic figures in world history — and I don’t mean that in a good way.

I have never seen a girl so young and with so many mental disorders treated by so many adults as a guru.

Thunberg, who has inspired student strikes around the world to demand more action on global warming, has been invited by many of the world’s most powerful politicians and tycoons to rip into them with her Old Testament warmist message — repent, for the end of the world is nigh.

The elite at the World Economic Forum had her in to rage that “the house is burning”.

“I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day and then I want you to act.”

The European parliament had her in to warn of the “end of civilisation as we know it”.

The United Nations had her in to tell a climate conference: “Our biosphere is being sacrificed so that rich people in countries like mine can live in luxury. We are running out of time.”

The UN secretary-general even invited her to a personal meeting so she could tell him to his face that she so feared the end of the world that there was no point in going to school: “Why should I be studying for a future that soon may be no more, when no one is doing anything to save that future?”

French politicians last month invited her to accuse them of making a martyr of her and other warmists: “We are being mocked and lied about by members of parliament and journalists.”

What is so fascinating about this Thunberg cult is not just that she’s believed so fervently even though she’s wrong.

(The evidence does not suggest that humanity faces doom. The world has recently posted record grain crops and record life expectancy.)

Far more interesting is why so many adults — including elected politicians, top business leaders, the Pope and journalists — treat a young and strange girl with such awe and even rapture.

That’s in part because they are self-admiring frauds, of course: adults who simply reward a clever child for saying exactly what they want to hear and what they taught her to say.

But Thunberg has something very rare as well — a sense of absolute certainty. She shows not the slightest doubt and forgives not the slightest compromise. This allows followers who are tormented with doubt and burden of freedom to relax into her totalitarian certainty.

And in Thunberg’s case, that certainty comes from what normally would be seen as a disability.

If we can believe a book by her mother, opera soprano and Eurovision contestant Malena Ernman, Thunberg went two months without eating when she was 11.

She suffered years of depression and anxiety attacks and was finally diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, high-functioning autism, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Her intense fear of the climate is not surprising from someone with disorders which intensify fears.

THE WORD USED TO SHUT DEBATE DOWN

Thunberg even has selective mutism, an anxiety disorder which can make her unable to speak to anyone except her parents and younger sister, who herself has a spectacular range of mental issues.

Thunberg herself told a Swedish TV show that her Asperger’s is actually an advantage because it helped her to see things in a “different way” from others — in “black and white”.

In fact, it is normally a fault, and a dangerous one, not to see the greys between the black and white and to have zero patience with alternative facts, opinions or values.

But for followers of a religious figure, a Messiah, such absolute certainty is a must. They need a leader who seems absolutely sure of the right way — no matter how wrong that way and irrational that leader.

And Greta Thunberg has all that certainty that unreason can possibly give.

  1. For most people their individual brains interpret the same world separately with each one having a sense of being the subject of that experience. They see other people as being objects in that experience BUT their brains have the capacity to conceive that other people also have brains which tell those others that they too are the subject of their own individual experience of life.

    So life is experienced as a balance between self actualisation and concern for respecting the rights of others to self actualise differently with that respect being reciprocated. It does mean a constant multi-way negotiation as to where everyone’s boundaries begin and end and the others’ start with preparedness to compromise and, when we get it wrong, to own our mistakes by apologising on the one hand and forgiving on the other.

    Narsicissts do not care about this balance and self actualise to the fullest extent possible.

    The Aspergic brain sees things differently from normal people because they have the first mentioned capacity of normal people BUT it has no capacity to appreciate that other people are individuals in their own right. So to the Aspergic person their experience of life is how it should be experienced and any deviation from thst makes no sense at all and to the degree that it does then the Aspergic brain will do everything it can to restore order to the chaos.

    For a normal brained person the best way to imagine the Aspergic view of the life is to recall how your conciousness experience a dream. You are the only subject in the dream and everyone else is an animate object with no individual existence.

    When the picture being presented by your brain all becomes too chaotic then you wake yourself up and are relieved to realise those chatacters were just part of your nightmare.

    Aspergic people have to stay in their nightmare and will narsicisstic like seek to bring everyone into the order they want to self actualise.

    When this fails due to people standing up to their bullying then they are stuck in their nightmare of being surrounded by chaos and will display the stereotypical blank stare as a means of tuning out, or will avoid eye contact by looking not at your face but slightly to the side and focus on a distant point.

    1. 1.) Re: “So life is experienced as a balance between self actualisation and concern for respecting the rights of others to self actualise differently with that respect being reciprocated.

      NOPE! Others DO NOT have any “right” to “self actualise differently with that respect being reciprocated” (!)

      One can only self-actualize up to the point where one’s wants may infringe others’ needs – i.e: your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins.

      The Golden Rule of Law most simply defines all morality as: “Do Not Attack First” – and everyone can easily understand it.

      2.) As for Ass-Purgers; again, NO.

      They are neurologically impaired, truly wired differently, and so cannot experience pain the way the rest of us do – a fact which leads them to not as readily fear retaliatory consequences from others; SO they don’t have to think about others needs and wants as much.

      However, they DO feel pain in things we do not – such as the soft touch of a feather is perceived – and FEARED! – by them AS pain. So where an arm-breaking and otherwise painful armlock used to restrain them might easily be ignored and the direct experience of same even laughed at, the merest threat of holding up a feather is often enough to stop their tantrums.

      Beyond that, they also simply lack the ability to read facial cues and emotions, something which is hard-wired into the rest of us, so they have to be specifically trained to observe such tells.

      Now you know!

      😉
