In this 36th episode of Independent Outlook, David Theroux, Williamson Evers, and Graham Walker discuss if it's easy to agree that Vladimir Putin’s war tactics are monstrous and malignant. But what happens in Ukraine if Putin is getting desperate after Ukraine sank his naval flagship with Western-supplied armaments? Is U.S. President Joe Biden displaying the kind of judicious statesmanlike leadership that the moment requires? On the home front, the culture war is heating up in Florida as Governor DeSantis challenges Disney and scrutinizes Florida’s public-school curriculum.
