I don’t think she’s on the same level as MLK or Gandhi, but she might be the closest we’ve had in a while? Especially in the West?

I heard that mlk and Gandhi were socialist, no idea about Greta.

I’m assuming this is satire.

Gandhi was not a socialist.

And no, Greta is nothing like MLK or Gandhi. Is this bait?

Gandhi was not a socialist.

Yes, but he’s listed on https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarcho-pacifism which does overlap with socialism more than like conservativism.

Anarcho-pacifism is fancy term for nonviolent resistance. It says nothing about someone’s political and economical ideology. Most examples on that page especially the historically prominent ones would not have described themselves as any variety of anarchists.

Absolutely fucking not. Next question.

I just have two points to make

  1. Lm
  2. ao

Mega lol indeed

The media may be painting her as such, but this is absolutely not true. Keep in mind, MLK was an actual socialist who openly advocated civil disobedience and dismantling the systemic racism that is enabled by capitalism. Greta is nothing like this at all; comparing her in any way to MLK is a complete insult to MLK.

civil disobedience and dismantling the systemic racism that is enabled by capitalis

I don’t know the details, but isn’t Greta related to extinction rebellion which does civil disobedience, and the future for Friday movements which also does limited civil disobedience? To tackle the problems of climate change enabled by capitalism?

Extinction Rebellion is about as much of a liberal pseudo-anarchist movement as you can get. They actually came to prominence because they would get on top of trains, block highways, etc., to stop people from going to work just to protest, thus literally putting hundreds if not thousands of people at risk of losing their jobs. Not exactly a proletarian movement if you ask me.

Don’t all mass ish protests risk thousands losing their jobs?

The handful of protests I’ve been to, a good portion blocked roads. Heck, most carnivals I’ve been to block roads.

What is BLM politically? liberal pseudo-anarchist too?

lol. get the fuck out.
