The Zeitgeist

The Zeitgeist is my attempt at cataloguing the spirit of the times. The ever-changing world of politics and popular culture is an interesting landscape of shifting trends, ideas & people. The Zeitgeist is a look at that world through the eyes of a 20-something male university student.

Who Am I?

I am Alex Lobov, a 23 year old final year student at the University of Melbourne, pursuing two Bachelor degrees in Arts & Commerce. Apart from my education, my worldview has been shaped largely by my experiences working for AIESEC, travelling through Asia, Europe & the Middle East, and avid consumption of news media & literature.

Why am I blogging?

I see this blog as a good way to develop my writing skills as well as a way to clarify my thoughts & self-reflect. I’d also like to be able to connect with a broad range of different people & opinions. Ultimately, when I look back on this blog, I’d like it to be an accurate snapshot of the times & my views/opinions on them.
