Many see Greta Thunberg as a passionate young activist who brings hope for the future. I see a traumatized kid, indoctrinated with doomsday messages, being exploited. The Left has taken a page from religious fanatics and is employing their own flavor of "child preachers." It's creepy and sad.
There has been much debate in recent years about limiting the freedom of speech. Some argue that so-called "hate speech" is a threat to our society. I believe that trying to stifle it is an even bigger threat.
