Thanks. Notice I put it in single quotes because it was a paraphrase.

As for the selective pedophrasty, consider Soph. She's two years younger than Greta, and she is suppressed rather than extolled.

Scott Adams did a thoughtful piece on Greta Thunberg. He starts with a defense of autism (20% of Dilbert readers are on the spectrum). He explains that autists are great (I agree), for one thing it's hard for them to lie. Not trusting people is two, but the problem is they can't tell when their being lied to because they have trouble reading other's affect. I can relate.

I'd be less concerned about Soros than Svante Thunberg.
