The Real Time Person of the Year

My Take on The Real Time Person of the Year

I think the fake magazine cover says all it needs to say. The Time Person of the Year should not have been that sniveling, climate-alarmist brat, Great Thunberg. Instead, the real Time Person of the Year should be the Hong Kong protestors.

Let’s look at the differences. Greta, despite saying we stole her childhood, lives a pretty charmed life. In fact, she doesn’t even have to go to school or work! Instead of doing those boring things, she gets to travel the world on her special boat and meet elites of every stripe.

On the other hand, the Hong Kong protestors are fighting for their lives and natural rights. They’re unarmed except for bricks or the occasional bow and arrow, so their tyrannical police force can terrorize them at will.

And they’re facing real police oppression. Not the oft-exaggerated police “oppression” that Gladwell complains about in Talking to Strangers. If they had real assault weapons, the proper weapons to fight tyranny, then perhaps they wouldn’t be so helpless in the face of police oppression. But that’s beside the point.

What matters is that the Hong Kong protestors have actually done something brave. They understand the importance of freedom and are fighting for it. They are the real Time Person of the Year.

Greta, on the other hand, is just another climate change alarmist. She spreads climate change lies in an attempt to make herself feel important. Or, in other words, she has done little and sacrificed less.

So, in my opinion, at least, she is completely undeserving of the Time Person of the Year spot. That spot should be reserved for someone (or a group, like those in Hong Kong) who actually shapes world events. And the Hong Kong protestors have done that.

They’ve shown that America is in a new Cold War with China, what living with censorship is like in the modern world and that there are still brave souls ready to resist tyranny. The protestors would make Jefferson proud; they’re watering the tree of liberty with the blood of patriots and tyrants. They should be honored as the real Time Person of the Year so they see that a freedom-loving America is willing to support them and ensure the survival of liberty. Greta is just sailing and complaining. She doesn’t deserve it.
