Meaning ... she is someone’s puppet?
Or that her future is disappearing as she speaks?
Something else?
I had no such thoughts Amigo, I just saw the look in her eyes and felt her pressure/anxiety.
You stated that she has been put in such a position and it’s not natural. These are thoughts. What do you mean?
It will be the look in more and more peoples’ eyes as we realize and understand and know what is happening.

Fuki: you and I are "on the same page" regarding eating vegetables instead of meat, for ethical reasons. I am forced to report the video you posted. To me, it is a "snuff video". I fully support and appreciate the moral stand it represents, but it just crosses a line emotionally. No different than what I would imagine watching a beloved pet (or any other creature) being murdered could be equated to. Understand it, but it felt harmful to me to try to watch. Again, I appreciate your taking a stand on this, and I hope things change. Veg burgers are getting a tryout at fast food outlets over here, so there is hope.
Spike, thanks I understand and sorry for the harm caused by viewing it, but thank you for viewing it.
I chanted om namo buddhaya during watching it, may all beings be well.

But this is the reality in the meat/dairy/egg industry, I didn;t post it for "snuff" reasons ofcourse, but to me this is the crux (our conduct) and ironic for me how much time ppl waste on discussing "trump" or "buddhadharma"/ "dependend origination" while this is a everyday reality the industry doesn't want us to see, but I understand for most ppl this is too harmful to watch, so wherever you can promote a vegan life style where you can (if the opportunity presents itself not as an agenda) I thank you, and all beings.

The state of our planet by human activity (the 3 poisons) do you consider it natural?
That a child is put in such a position and being used by a myriad of groups and anti-groups to present their own agenda, is that natural?

The misery of this human state and all that comes of it, be it release, freedom or ongoing misery, is completely natural. As for the particular situation of this girl, Greta Thunberg, 16 years of age, certainly old enough to see and comprehend ... she seems capable of advancing her own agenda and why not.

I understand, did my fews words "put jn such a position" arise a habitual reaction in you?

Just asking and observing the tendencies of sentient beings, 2 days ago I spend hours picking up trash in the dunes by race fans, when I asked them to please consider not throwing their trash in nature there were automatic responses and I was locked up in a mental picture as "anti-racing" while I love racing (formula 1 is coming back here and there are obsessive group identities as pro and anti-racing, just as in politics, stiff back politics I call it, "left and right") these days unrelated requests or uttered words are immediately put in some cabinet, cabinet-mind is the dutch term.

So I only said I felt for her as I saw what she was going through.
Whether she is capable of advancing her own agenda I do not know, although I doubt she isn't influenced by a political agenda (by now), which to me a 16 year old shouldn't be put in. It's no criticism just an observation, I feel the same for children in Buddhist temples or any religion, to me that's unnatural, you might have a different angle of vision.
