Greta's calm strength in the face of this storm of hate and conspiracy theories is another of her outstanding qualities.
I don't know how she does it. That shit would break my back.
Not only has @GretaThunberg shifted the entire global conversation about climate breakdown, she has also shifted the whole conversation about #Neurodiversity.
She has helped everyone who has been labelled "weird" to embrace their difference and take pride in it.
Total hero.
We need different ways of looking at the world to get out of our mess. #Neurodiversity has always been crucial for human survival. Yet our schools select and reward just 1 of the many varieties of intelligence. I made a film about this with @SustainableMan
In a world governed by neoliberal norms of selfishness and greed, caring about other people and the living systems that sustain us is subversive, threatening and weird. We are deviants. And we should be proud of it.
Do you know the etymology of the word weird?
It meant destiny.
The "weird" are destined to change the world.
