[ by Charles Cameron — a pair of DoubleQuotes and a whole bunch of the questions the two of them raise ]
DoubleQuote I: St Greta, Virgin and Guevara:
Is either meme valid? including its implications? Are those implications obscure to you? Can both sets of implications be valid at once? Could both memes be irrelevant? misleading? Are they in conflict? counterpoint? harmony? Do you have a preference for one meme over the other? What’s your opinion of the other meme?
DoubleQuote II: St Greta and St Malala:
Each of these young women is addressing the United Nations, Malala asking for universal education, Greta for immediate action on climate change.
Is there urgent need for universal education? Is there universal need for action on climate change? is Malala Yousafzai a sort of saint? Is Greta Thunberg a sort of saint? Does either one set your teeth on edge? Why do I even have to ask that question?
