Terre + erreur = terreur

So read one of the idiotic banners at the Marche pour le climat. Dalrymple comments:

Only people who had lived all their lives in a state of the utmost comfort and security (try that slogan in Rwanda or Cambodia) and who had hardly ever suffered fright, let alone terror, could have held up such a banner and believed that it really meant what it said.

Terror for these pampered nitwits

was a distant prospect enjoyable to contemplate, as in a disaster movie, rather than something that was within their own experience.
