Everyone's a victim -- right?

Postby aardvark_admin » Sun Sep 29, 2019 7:31 am

From this story: https://i.stuff.co.nz/environment/clima ... ung-people

One of the Auckland strike's organisers, Marcail Parkinson, 17, said at the event on Friday that "climate dread is one of the biggest mental issues affecting youth".

"When Greta [Thunberg] did her last UN speech, I had to take the day off school, because I was just so upset that I was finding it hard to eat, I didn't want to move. I was so stressed out about that," she said.


Oh please... look at how our culture of raising snowflake victims is affecting kids.

Seriously, this is utterly pathetic.

We need to get back to the days when kids learned to be resilient and to cope with the challenges life threw at them... not to cower in fear because "the end is nigh".

What are we doing to ourselves????
