Ten days ago, news cycles around the world pivoted. Now, everyone is talking about Russia and Ukraine. We should be. The implications are far-reaching and heavy.
Global geopolitics are often equated to chess. Seeing as I am neither a gifted chess player, nor a geopolitical expert, I won't burden you with my opinion.

Everything seems unprecedented when you haven’t engaged with history. - Kelly Hayes
It is far easier to figure out if something is fragile than to predict the occurrence of an event that may harm it. - Nassim Taleb
It is difficult to remove by logic an idea not placed there by logic in the first place. - Gordon Livingston
It’s very common to be utterly brilliant and still think you’re way smarter than you actually are. - Charlie Munger
