I worry that that spark or that desire to make a difference is something that we’re losing, because you talk to people our age and they’re like “oh I would never run for office because I wouldn’t want to sell my soul.” … and they’re very well intentioned, but I just worry that the toxicity of our climate and some of the changing nature of the way campaigns are run is maybe keeping people from entering the sphere of public service and making it seem like this dirty job.
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.
