Times Online that is...
A much much better choice than Ben Bernanke.
Definitely a better choice as to nobility of character, but it's almost an insult to her memory to even bring Bernanke's name into the conversation. She was striving to increase liberty and freedom. He's working mightily to destroy an entire economic system.
The person of the year is not so much an honor. You don't have to be a good person. Hitler won in '38, Stalin in '39 and '41, and Ayatollah Khomeini in '79.
This isn't actually the TIME Magazine person of the year.
I don't believe she was even taking part in the protests, just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Leave it to the media.
Her words according to the article:
Ignoring the pleas of her family, she went with her music teacher eight days later to join a huge opposition demonstration in Tehran.
“What we’re fighting for is more important. When it comes to taking our stolen rights back we should not hesitate. Everyone is responsible. Each person leaves a footprint in this world.”
I'm glad the Times Online publication has brought attention to her and this issue.
Right, I was talking about your and Desertrat's assertion that she's a better choice than Bernanke. Bernanke has had much more influence in the news throughout the entire year.
