Greta Thunberg’s Fantastic Voyage for Socialism Exemplifies the Failures of Socialism

On November 12, young Greta Thunberg set sail from America to Europe. But not in the same way she arrived, and you’ll hear few people mention that.

Back in August, much was made of her trip to America. She “doesn’t fly because of the outsize greenhouse gas emissions from aviation,” the New York Times reports. So, she sailed to America on a very environmentally-friendly racing yacht instead.
It was reported that the cost of that entire voyage from England to America that she began back in August “has not been calculated.” That’s not true, of course. Somebody has certainly calculated and paid the cost that was incurred. What is meant by that statement is that the total cost is not being disclosed to the public. But it doesn’t take much digging to discover that it’s outside the realm of attainment for the common person who wishes to traverse the Atlantic. That vessel alone costs more than $4.1 million, and this doesn’t include the cost of employing the two skippers, a cameraman, food, time away from work, etc.

On the way home on November 12, however, she hitched a more comfortable ride with “an Australian couple that sails around the world in a 48-foot catamaran called La Vagabonde and chronicles their travels on YouTube,” according the Times. It’s hard to imagine that she hasn’t enjoyed this experience or her newfound fame, given that we have evidence that she was dancing the nights away to amuse her adoring fans.
