Commentary: Ukraine As Gospel

Commentary: Ukraine As Gospel

It was about 3am in the morning, during the first week of attacks on Ukraine by the invading Putin lead forces of the Russian Federation. I could not sleep effectively enough for my privileged expectation. As an American, those who have historically struggled to sleep can usually find many good options for such a condition–practically […]

But recently, at least in […]

    I was on Youtube watching my normal assortment of Ancient History based channels which usually cover the strategies and failures of past generals and kings and all of a sudden I saw a video on white privilege come up on my feed. I thought to myself that I should watch this video, not just […]

I'm Too Young for the Good Old Days, Right?

I’m Too Young for the Good Old Days, Right?

I think I was wrong to be excited about this election year. First, let me explain: in 2016, I was in graduate school and often you could find me debating the merits of the democratic field post Obama with my classmates. We would rhyme about our optimism for a country that was in the midst […]
