It has nothing to do with civil disobedience

"How dare you!" How dare you, Greta Thunberg called out to the world. An angry young girl who, as a figurehead of the Fridays for Future movement, has arguably influenced global climate policy more than most government officials.

But Greta Thunberg's "How dare you!" is losing credibility, parts of the climate protest have become radicalized, groups like the "Last Generation" are committed to destroying civil society and cultural values. They are not advocates of environmental protection, but opponents of the system.

A 44-year-old woman died in Berlin on Thursday. She was run over by a cement mixer on Monday. A special vehicle from the fire brigade, which was supposed to rescue them, arrived late. It was stuck in traffic caused by Last Generation trailers stuck on the city freeway.

Protest that accepts the risk of human life no longer has anything to do with civil disobedience. It is devastating - socially, politically and most importantly to the cause on whose behalf it acts. Fridays for Future has brought awareness of the climate situation to the mainstream of society. The movement helped "that climate protection is at the top of the agenda today," explained Olaf Scholz last year.

But now radical ideology and destructive protest determine the image of the climate movement. It is all the more tragic that activists like Luisa Neubauer do not distance themselves from these radicals. In doing so, they risk leaving the climate issue to the extreme fringe: doomsayers on the one hand and climate change deniers on the other.

In any case, the “Last Generation” has announced that it will continue its blockades: “The biggest risk is simply going on with everyday life,” she said on Twitter, “have courage. Support us.” How dare you?
