Notice how I said young adult. She's 17, which is the age most people graduate from the European equivalent of high school.


18+ is considered an adult in the EU, there is no 'young-adult' semantics category, you're either a minor or an adult.


She's of age to be conscripted in Sweden.

Yes she must be 18 to be charged as an adult in a court of law, but she can drink and drive (hopefully not at the same time), and be conscripted into the military. For the purposes of this, and future discussions, it is disingenuous to suggest that she is still a child, and therefore protected from scrutiny and ridicule.

Phage you are not.

You seriously think Greta is genuine and has no ulterior agenda?

Because there’s so much evidence to the contrary.

Her honesty that you reference, was she being honest when she jumped out of her first class train seat to have her picture taken on the floor and blatantly lied to people claiming there was no spaces. What about her claims she was protesting by not attending school on Fridays? Doesn’t really work when you find out she was at some special school that doesn’t even require daily attendance.

Grown men listening to this little shill is so disappointing. She’s a spoiled little brat and not very clever or emotionally stable to boot. As the father of a 17 year old daughter I can safely say in my experience they are not the most stable or rational demographic.

Where did I say that? I think ridiculing children is one of the greatest pastimes ever. I merely pointed out that the other poster was wrong before you decided to interject and try to establish that 17 is an adult.


Phage you are not.


Thank the Baby Jesus and all the other Jesuses. He's far too smart for my tastes.

Considering the cultural differences, she might as well be. Are 18 year olds here less of an adult because they can't legally drink until the age of 21, despite being legal adults?

The only thing I'm trying to establish is that she is not an innocent child safe from scrutiny and ridicule. But if she is still a child, I suppose she has no business being in the adult arena of politics and policy?

And today, I learned that ninja edits make one smart..

No, they're just adults who cant drink.

You can slice it any way you want to make yourself feel good, prior to your interjection I was pointing out that legally she is not an adult. Which is 100% correct.

I would tell them that if they rat on me I'd kill their parents first.

The Nazi's were Socialists, hardly a comparison. It could be argued they were far left.

“We are socialists. We are the enemies of today’s capitalist system of exploitation … and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” Adolf Hitler

Oh how times have changed.

In the modern world, neo-Nazis get together to Unite the Right.

They ditched all that "far-left/socialist" stuff ages ago.

The legality has nothing to do with the discussion. But for you it does, so I guess we agree then that until she's an adult, she should stay out of adult discussions, eh?

In so much that I was pointing out the other poster's comment was incorrect before you interjected yourself in an attempt to prove...something.
