Instead of honoring the death of Mohamed Bouazizi, the man who single-handedly changed the landscape of Arab politics forever, who galvanized an entire region into a historical movement that will be inked into the books of schoolchildren forever, who set the hearts of youth all across the Middle East on fire, TIME chose to honor:
- Blake Lively
- Amy Chua
- Justin Beiber
- Saif Gaddafi
You hear that, Time? That’s the sound of my respect for you running itself through a paper shredder.
Bourgeois magazine congratulates bourgeois in successfully being very rich and using that money to change things without making an ethical judgement of what those things should be. Bourgeois magazine ignores contribution to change by the proletariat, because the proletariat change things with deeds not money. Quelle surprise? I’m amazed BP aren’t getting a special mention, being congratulated for their ability to use money to influence governments to do shit all about the destruction they’re causing.
