As the war in Ukraine has started, we have seen some absolutely hypocritical statements made by U.S. officials.
But they’re only hypocritical if we know a bit of the context here.
And when we do, we are much better equipped to construct our own moral compasses, without any help from the U.S. This is what I illustrate and explain much better in my episode.
When it comes to media, erasing contexts is a choice that serves a purpose.
Do you ever feel like your head is about to explode? What are the issues that have that effect on you? I claim that intellectually “getting” a certain situation doesn’t make you immune to feeling a certain way about it. In the end, I think this is what makes us human: it is very much allowed.
