1: Hyphen needed on the bold? "I got a chance to study foreign cultures and languages up close."

2: Any danger of the bold being seen as a square-bracketed unit? "Many journalists seem to be ready to simply pick up Washington’s official line on events as a substitute for in-depth analysis." https://join.substack.com/p/that-moment

3: Could "historical" be interpreted as applying to "culture"? I could reorder the items to eliminate ambiguity but I'm not sure if a different order would be less desirable in one or another way. "[Empathy] simply means that you understand the psychology and worldview and historical experience and culture of countries and leaders you don’t agree with." https://join.substack.com/p/that-moment

4: Hyphen and/or caps needed on the bold? Can't find this in the NYT archive: "Fuller served as the National Intelligence Council’s vice-chair" https://join.substack.com/p/that-moment

5: What should I do about the bold "X, but Y and Z" construction? This comes up over and over; there's a ", but" and then an "and" glued on...it makes me hesitate but some some reason an "X, but Y, so Z" construction looks great to me.
