Jon Swift’s suggestion for a better choice of Time’s Person of the Year,
I think if Time was going to choose a pronoun as Person of the Year, the best choice would have been Them. More and more people see the world as Us against Them. They seem to hate us for some reason. And lately we haven’t been so fond of them either. Some people believe they aren’t just different from us, with different ideas or different opinions or different cultures. They are the enemy. They have to be stopped. If we don’t do something now, they are going to take over, imposing their ideas and culture on us. The funny thing is, they think the same thing about us. They think we want to impose our culture on them when in fact we are just trying to help them. I have no idea why they are so angry at us. What did we ever do to them?
