I posted this photo on FB, Meta, Whatevers, and they blocked it saying it was 'false information' because Banksey did not create it, as someone may have posted. Bots can run your life.

TFG to demand to be installed as Time POTY since the selection process was unquestionably compromised.

What a lot of people don't know is he's not just a comedian, he has a large media empire in Ukraine and is a savvy businessman. Kind of like how Trump sees himself, but for real.

He's a Facebook user!  Get him!!!  Don't let them come here and ruin everything.  "I posted this on FB" - please don't ever start any kind of conversation with that, nobody has ever cared or will ever care what you posted on Facebook or what all the other idiots did when you posted it.

Some of this year's winners are part of that "Spirit of Ukraine". Zelenskyy might not get it at all depending on how the war ends.

Out of curiosity, I looked up a list of Time's person of the year.  The first was Nazi sympathizer Charles Lindbergh.  Hitler was POY for 1938.  Stalin made POY twice, 1939 and 1942.  Nixon also received the honor twice.  Khomeini, Newt Gingrich, Dubya, Ken Starr, Rudy, Putin, Zuckerberg and Musk have all been recipients.

While there are definitely some very good people who have been honored by Time, and I also realize that hindsight is 20/20, I still have to wonder how much of an "honor" it really is to be chosen to be a part of a group that includes the above.

It's not necessarily meant to be an honor. It's more "Who dominated the headlines the most this year?"

it is, and always has been, about who had the most "impact" on the events of the year. not who the best person of the year is.

Ita not really meant as a good thing, more of a "who made the most waves" at least as far as I understand it.

Person of the Year isn't always a good person. It's the person Time feels had the most impact in the world due to their actions and/or the effect of their actions globally. Lindbergh was a national hero at the time for his flight across the Atlantic; his "Nazi sympathies" were not yet possible in 1927 when Hitler was still ranting in beer halls in Munich. Nixon got his once just for being President (like Kennedy, FDR, Eisenhower, and Truman), and once for his role in normalizing relations with China.

Just because someone affects the world doesn't mean they're good, bad, or indifferent. it's just a thing.
