Time magazine has chosen Greta Thunberg, a Swedish climate crisis activist, as person of the year.

Each year, the magazine features the most influential person, group, movement or idea of the previous 12 months. Last year, it was "The Guardians," a group of journalists who have been targeted or assaulted for their work. In 2017, it was "The Silence Breakers," the group of people who came forward to report sexual misconduct. Past Persons of the Year include Adolf Hitler, Ayatollah Khomeini and Joseph Stalin.

Most asperger folks I know (and I’m one of them) are conservative or right leaning moderates. I belong to a global asperger forum and she has been getting ripped apart on there. Aspergers people like logic and the liberals don’t appeal to that at all. She is the way she is mainly because of brainwashing by her parents. Feel sorry for her and the way she is being used/abused.

Tech is filled with them. Some of us are also on the spectrum and we can spot each other a mile away. You’ll find a lot of us in various hobby groups and career fields.
