It has been interesting to me, over the last year or so, to feel like I am following, in some sense. Understanding, in some sense, things that are going on, politically, around the world.

I remember previously feeling like foreign politics was a totally foreign language to me. I still feel like that about some issues... The stuff about the Russian Spy and... Impeachment... I wasn't following any of that...

But trying to understand what was going on in Hong Kong with the protests.. Trying to understand enough to make up my own mind what I thought about things...

ANd I have been feeling like I am able to follow along a bit with the politics thing.

Which is good, I think.

I was going to say it is about Covid sort of providing a theme or whatever to make politics more understandable.

Perhaps that is true. But it has also been the case that I have invested more time and effort into trying to understand and researching various things so I could understand more / better. Reading a variety of news sources etc.

So it is likely a bit of both.

I didn't know where HOng Kong was on the map of the world, previously. Taiwan. Beijing. Wuhan (maybe still not sure... 2hrs from HOng Kong on the train, they reckon...)
