Misogyny, male rage and the words men use to describe Greta Thunberg

by Volker Weber

At a deep level, the language of climate denialism is tied up with a form of masculine identity predicated on modern industrial capitalism – specifically, the Promethean idea of the conquest of nature by man, in a world especially made for men. By attacking industrial capitalism, and its ethos of politics as usual, Thunberg is not only attacking the core beliefs and world view of certain sorts of men, but also their sense of masculine self-worth. Male rage is their knee-jerk response.

... What certain kinds of men do not wish to acknowledge is that asking for action on climate change is entirely rational.

Die, die es betrifft, werden es nicht verstehen. Es ist unendlich traurig.

Lucius Bobikiewicz, 2019-10-02

Die Welt "betrifft" uns alle, ganz gleich an welchem Ort.
Rationale Urteilsfähigkeit und die Eignung etwas zu "verstehen" ist den Menschen noch stets umgehend verloren gegangen, wenn religiöse Mechanismen die Oberhand gewinnen.
Die einen vergessen ihre Bildung, die anderen ihre Manieren.
"Es ist unendlich traurig."
