So, a more serious post, here. I honestly found the linked article above somewhat helpful. Though, without getting into a political rant, I don’t at all assume we (‘merica) are sticking our nose in anyplace except to protect and further our own interests. Cuz, that’s not how it really works. It seems, honestly, almost silly that we ever pretend anything else, but I guess some people really do but it.

HOORAY depressing things to think about.
