Gloria.tv's Connexion with the Rich

At the Roman Forum which in July took place in Gardone, Italy, one of our editors was asked whether Gloria.tv was financially supported by some wealthy families. The answer is no. Gloria.tv inform…

Strange how the question is never asked of all these "student activists" who seem to have unlimited funds and VIP access.

"Student activist" is more to the truth than "unlimited funds". I live on 360 Euro a month ($ 400) in bloody expensive Western Europe, paying also my [minimal] insurances from this. The level to be considered "poor" here is 800 Euro a month.

Stop smoking cigarettes and curtail your wild late night drinking. You might also limit your dining at fine restaurants instead by going to McDonald's once a month.

Another solution, which will require some adjustment, is to find a self-sufficient boyfriend who will help pay the bills.

A long time ago at another Catholic website the issue of how to meet a suitable partner was raised. The priest giving the advise (the questioner was a male) told him to first try looking at ladies sitting near him during mass. I don’t remember what the introductory line suggested was but if the other person is interested, I believe almost any line said sincerely (not desperately) could break the ice.

Amor fati.

Since its start twelve years ago, Gloria.tv never ever received any donation from a “wealthy” source.

If the wealthy (wealth being a relative term) source preferred not to disclose their wealth (for undisclosed reasons), how would GTV or anyone else know it? GTV may have wealthy sources without even knowing it.

@Eva I was referring to people like Great Thunberg and our own local American variety who support equally leftist causes: banning private firearms ownership, homosexuality, abortion, climate-change, things of that nature.

@Eva I was referring to people like Great Thunberg and our own local American variety who support equally leftist causes: banning private firearms ownership, homosexuality, abortion, climate-change, things of that nature.

These poor, supposedly ordinary students somehow, very mysteriously manage for all the expenses involved in setting up HUGE demonstrations. Printing costs for hundreds of signs, producing professional press-kits for the media, things that, quite bluntly no student could afford.

I'm ignoring the obvious question how supposedly ordinary students know who to call at the major news studios and arrange maximum coverage ahead of time.

Consdier little Greta Thunberg. Do you know how to schedule a personal meeting with The Pope? I mean, just like that. Pick up the phone, shedule a meeting with His Holiness at YOUR convenience, then call the top editors at the major news outlets so there is full coverage for your meeting AND then just "happen" to have enough money to fly down to Rome, book a room, and be ready for the big meeting.

This is not within the experience or finances of a genuine student. @Holy Cannoli said it best elsewhere. These children are like marionettes. Someone else is pulling their strings and supplying their voice. Someone else is packing them up when the puppet show is done at one city and flying them to their next performance.

The media, so quick to seek out any financial influence that might affect Donald Trump's presidential decisions has a remarkable lack of interest in who funds this new generation of not-so-ordinary, and very political students.
