Hi Cristina 🙂

Last summer I felt the same way- it was very obvious who in my social circle was following the conflict purely from celebrity quote and quote influencers. Although, I do think there were some positive ramifications from vapid celebrity posts- after some friends reshared posts from Hollywood’s best geopolitical analysts (heavy sarcasm there :D) I found myself feeling extra motivated to do my own research, which I found to be quite difficult. There’s just so many layers of history and complexities, I got a bit overwhelmed and ultimately gave up on trying to have an informed viewpoint- until now, and here I am in Philos 🙂

Hope to run into you soon 🙂
