Was given to Angela Merkel. Overall and an interesting choice, and the second German head of state to get the title since Adolf Hitler. For anyone that isnt familiar, its not given to someone who particularly a good person, but usually someone who wields considerable influence. I've posted before about how Europe is becoming irrelevant on the geopolitical scene. Outside of the UK, which isn't on the Euro anyway, Germany is the only country that wields actual power in Europe (and France to a degree) and has the gravitas to do so. Unfortunately they cant take the lead and guide the Eurozone forward, because well, historical reasons. However, Germany's power over the UK has been ticking upward of the past 18 months or so and it will be interesting to see how things play out over the next five years. Overall, I think shes very much befitting of the title of Person of the Year. In case anyone was curious on who was next in the running: 2) Abu Bakr al Baghdadi - purported ISIS leader 3) Donald Trump 4) Black Lives Matter (the group/movement as a whole) 5) Hassan Rouhani - Iranian president 6) Travis Kalanick - founded Uber 7) Caitlyn Jenner - Queen of the Trannies Focus: Thoughts on the Person of the Year and the list in general. Alt Focus: Who else is befitting the title and why?
