[In New York] I was exposed to viewpoints just by not being in that small space that I had never really engaged with before and obviously I became aware of — this may or may not be for the good — of the fact that like, Iran is not necessarily the highest on a long list of things that most regular people need to care about. And I do think it’s easy to lose sight of that. And so I think that it is good to go and be a little bit more of a generalist in some ways and just sort of leave the space and come up for air and realize where your issue, although it’s important, where it fits into a broader universe of things that policymakers really are trying to juggle and that regular people, who want to be engaged and want to know these issues, are trying to sort out in their own head.
Hey there! Before you go, please take a moment to support Inkstick Media.
As the first and only foreign policy outlet written explicitly by and for a broader, younger, and more diverse audience, Inkstick offers new views on the big, emergent questions and debates that typically are discussed behind closed doors in Washington DC, in elite diplomatic circles, and the halls of think tanks. Quite simply: Inkstick is foreign policy for the rest of us.
