So I’m not sure this is going to be at all coherent but I just keep coming back to this idea about how interconnected politics and celebrity and I suppose pop-culture (not sure this is the right term I am looking for, maybe fame?) are in this book and in life. I don’t exactly have anything specific to say but I always find it interesting that politicians seem to become celebrities and vice versa while they both do such different things, but like they also aren’t totally different in what they do? Not completely different I don’t think because both can be extremely influential. And I feel like in this book they are even more interconnected than I realize because there are outspoken celebrities and politicians alike disappearing or being arrested.
I’m not sure where this is going exactly but I am interested to hear other people’s thoughts on these two.
