    clearly, those who are against The People taking the future of their society into their own hands, rather than simply allowing the rich & powerful rule the world, are unhappy with Time magazine's decision.

    For The past few to several years the Person of the Year has been fairly vague. People may consider it laziness.

    Whenever Time has done something in general terms, whether a group or the masses (as individuals), you will have people who argue in favor of it as endlessly as those who criticize the magazine for the choice. I fall on the side of the critics, but that doesn't mean I deny the impact of populist movements in 2010-2011 in the social/political discussion. I just find it editorially lazy.

    I would think the protesters would win for group of the year or event of the year but not PERSON singular.

    It's more of an irrellevant thing.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    This pretty much sums it up.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
