a new era

PERSON OF THE YEAR STARTED ON A WHIM. AT the end of 1927, the editors realized they had made it through the year without putting the 25-year-old aviator Charles Lindbergh on the cover to commemorate his historic solo flight that May across the Atlantic. The solution was to make him “Man of the Year,” launching what has become one of the most enduring franchises in journalism. Lindbergh was not only the first but until now also the youngest individual to be named TIME Person of the Year. This year we name 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who—via seemingly every mode of transportation except Lindbergh’s—journeyed around the globe while leading a movement to protect it. Of course, the power of youth is hardly a new theme: in 1966, TIME chose an entire generation, people…

Neither that war nor its consequences for democracy have abated in the intervening 12 months. For Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whose henchmen killed and dismembered Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in a Saudi consulate, life goes on much as before.
