Surprise: World Socialists Are Super Enthused By Climate Kids Walkout

I’m not going to beat this one to death, but who is surprised by the World Socialist Web Site, which is published by the International Committee of the Fourth International (ICFI) (go look that one up) were happy as a pig in you know what over the kiddies walking out in protest of a tiny increase in the world temperature?

Youth at global climate protests speak out on capitalism, socialism and scientific planning

Ladan, 18, who had left classes at her school in Oxfordshire, told the WSWS, “Me and my friend really care about climate change and have wanted to do something about it for so long. If we don’t do something soon, we won’t have another opportunity.”

Asked why so many young people had come to the demonstration, Ladan’s 16-year-old friend Lucy said, “A lot is due to social media. It’s much easier to access and find an answer. There are so many accounts that advocate doing something about what is wrong. People are realizing that capitalism and money aren’t the most important things anymore.

“Capitalism is responsible for climate change because capitalists want to find the cheapest solution to sell things to people.”

Four students from the Tunbridge Wells Bennett Memorial School held up banners declaring, “We are the revolution for the solution” and “Change the government. Not the climate.” They told the WSWS that they thought climate change is the biggest problem for young people. (snip)

“This planet is one thing we have all got in common. And it is being ruined by capitalism for the sake of profit. It is going downhill so quickly. (snip)

One of the students declared, “The two-party system is not working anymore.” Another said, “I’m proposing a democratic form of socialism, where there isn’t the one percent that controls 60 percent of the wealth anymore.”

You get the idea. But there is plenty, plenty more at the website. Kinda clues you in what this is really about.

BTW, I love the complaints about capitalism with capitalist created clothes shipped by capitalist created companies with a picture from a capitalist created smartphone.
