Joined 5 years ago from California
Having graduated with degrees in politics and sociology, I have a wide range of interests that stretch from pop culture to international politics and evolutionary psychology. Having written specifically about the the causes and consequences of violent conflicts and the decline of modern democratic institutions, I often attempt to infuse these relatively intense subjects with a dose of humor (though that may be debated by some). Beyond my academic interests I am an avid sports fan and dedicated science fiction enthusiast/nerd.

American hegemony since the collapse of the USSR has relied largely on soft power politics related to the benefits of democracy. Under Trump hard power has become America's only weapon.
