I went with a write-in for Bat Ye'or, for her work on dhimmitude.

We're going to swamp the rest. Good for us. If my choice doesn't win top spot I'm certain yours will.

However, looking at the history of ideas we can find men like Sorel, Feuerbach, and Darre, those who did great things, some bad, and who made it to the tops of lists only to be forgotten by all but a few while those who did great things in their time weren't on any list but the police agent's, and today men like Jabotinski are heroes to many of us.
