Cory Morningstar, "The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg", WrongKindOfGreen.org (January - February 2019)
I'm still wading through this series. It's an extended research piece in "six acts" looking at organisations and individuals associated with the now-famous Greta Thunberg. I don't know about you, but from the moment it was reported that Greta had been permitted to give a presentation at the World Economic Forum in Davos— to powerful people who, presumably we are to believe, don't want to hear her message—I have been a little suspicious: not of Greta herself, but of the forces that might be invested in propelling her to stardom.
No doubt some will think me overly cynical for doubting the purity of this story about a fresh young activist, speaking up for future generations and our wonderful planet. How could I even think such a thing? But then maybe that's the point: How could I? I must be bad, or mad, or something... Mmm.
