Demon of The Year: 2022

Source: Freeman’s Perspective
by Paul Rosenberg

“The Demon of The Year award is given to, ‘that person or entity who has terrified more children, raised more blood pressure and/or been more reflexively hated than any other being on our planet over the past year.’ How grounded in reality any of the above may be is not an issue in determining the Demon of The Year; what matters is that the recipient personifies the image of the demon in the collective mind of the public. Traditionally the demon of the year was created by television’s talking heads, but in more recent years by social media mobs. But whatever the case, the demon of the year is always easy to identify: castigating him, her, them or it generates more knowing head-nods and enthusiastic revulsion than anyone or anything else.” (01/18/23)
