A bunch of upset teenagers are planning to go on strike March 15th.. for a day.. to protest the fact that no one has done anything about climate change.
socialist manifesto meaningless ridiculous diatribe, they give a number of thoughtless reasons why each disenfranchised student will accumulate one unexcused absence from school, thereby denying school districts much needed funding – which is based, of course, on attendance. One of those reasons is illustrated below:
To many people, the Green New Deal seems like a radical, dangerous idea. That same sentiment was felt in 1933, when Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed the New Deal—a drastic piece of legislation credited with ending the Great Depression that threatened (and cost) many lives in this country. Robber-barons, ordinary citizens, and many in between were enraged by the policies enacted by the New Deal. But looking back at how it changed the United States, it’s impossible to ignore that the New Deal brought an end to the worst economic disaster in history by creating fundamental programs like Social Security and establishing new regulatory agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Works Progress Administration mobilized workers across the nation to build important infrastructure—including thousands of schools—that has improved Americans’ everyday life for generations.
Except it wasn’t FDR’s New Deal that brought an end to America’s worst economic disaster: It was because the US was pulled into World War II by the bombing of Pearl Harbor. (Insert, “The German’s did it!” joke) Little things like this would easily be understood, and learned, in school should certain striking students actually read history and not shout the talking points from the illiterate Congresscritter of New York’s District 14.
If they aren’t already learning history in school, how the world actually works and perhaps even science, they might realize that missing one day of school is similarly meaningless. Indeed, if they are so passionate about changing the world for the better, perhaps they could redirect their energies towards learning STEM skills and find ways to create better, cleaner, more efficient energy systems. The answer isn’t periodic inaction and toddler tantrums – it’s actually doing something productive.
I know that’s asking a lot, but it’s very clear that liberal indoctrination is harming our youth to the point they will miss school they aren’t learning from anyway to parrot liberal talking points promoting false narratives.
Enjoy your day off! I’m sure some teachers will be happy they aren’t disrupting the other students who want to learn.
