The CT World Affairs Council had so many topics and speakers that it would be impossible to talk about them all in vivid detail. I attended around 3-4 of the lectures, and they were a blur because the information overloaded my brain. The topic of the event was of international security and cyberspace. As one would expect from having multiple military personnel as part of the panels, a lot of them were speaking to a certain narrative. While I did like all the topics covered, I think that people tried to promote their agenda a lot. It was a good experience to see how high ranking people seem to talk, especially General Allen who was very anti-Trump without him saying anything about him at all. It was a good insight into how diplomats talk. That said, I felt it detracted from the talks when people straight up lied. I understand that they are promoting a certain agenda, but 160,000 dollars of funding to Afghanistan have been cut and 30 peanut farmers were killed recently and they pretended and literally said that the alliance was the best thing to happen. I felt as though I was watching a combination of 3d chess and a puppet show. One significant thing I learned was how technology and AI was a threat. I was being impressed by all sorts of people and how they even acknowledged the probability of Skynet. I thought it interesting how it was like nuclear bombs, where it was a massive problem that could potentially get themselves killed, but necessary to stay in a relevant position of power. Overall, it was a very instructive event, although it did make me dislike politicians and military a whole lot more than I already do. You could tell that most of them were puppets of the state.
