Greta Thunberg Unloads at Book Launch, Reveals Socialist Agenda in Off-Script Rant

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg appeared to go off-script during her recent book launch when she revealed her socialist agenda while unloading in a rant after her motives were called into question.

Thunberg has been out promoting her new, “The Climate Book,” with a series of public appearances.

During a recent promotional event in London, Thunberg reportedly went “off the rails” when she was “gently quizzed” on whether “saving the planet” was her sole agenda.

Thunberg responded by declaring that she needs to take down the very same capitalism that has allowed her home country to flourish.

According to author Michael Shellenberger, Thunberg wasn’t exactly subtle with this assertion, either.

As author Shellenberger noted in his Substack, Thunberg made it abundantly clear that “the whole capitalist system” was the scourge of the planet.

Thunberg described capitalism as the “system” that created the climate crisis in the first place, through its use of “colonialism, imperialism, oppression” and “genocide.”

She also blamed capitalism for “racist, oppressive extractionism.”

However, Thunberg’s anti-capitalist claims are simply not true, either in practice or historically.

Capitalism is what helped spur the Industrial Revolution, which is the forefather of virtually all technological advances made since then.

Those technological advances are what even allowed people to procure some of that questionable data that helped spur climate change research in the first place.

And it’s that questionable data that created a platform big enough for Thunberg to sell her climate change book in the first place.

For better and for worse, capitalism has spurred the most growth and innovation in the world.

Capitalism is the best system we have, and unless a better system can be identified, it should be the system kept in place.

It’s also worth noting the hypocrisy of Thunberg denouncing capitalism while hocking her $26 book on Amazon.

Thunberg’s comments did receive some praise, nevertheless.

The Socialist Party celebrated Thunberg’s direct attack on capitalism as a “welcome development.”

“It is a very welcome development that @GretaThunberg used the launch of her new book in October to place responsibility for the climate crisis at the door of capitalism and to call for its overthrow,” the official Socialist Party Twitter account tweeted in response.

For those still unsure of Thunberg’s newfound aggressive socialist agenda, the Socialist Party actually spelled out its mission rather clearly.

“Greta Thunberg’s journey from school striker to climate campaigner to support for the anticapitalist left is a journey that can be, and hopefully will be, undertaken by many others in Generation Z,” the Socialist Party tweeted.
