In this thirty-second episode of Independent Outlook, Research Fellow William J. Watkins, Jr., joins with Williamson Evers, and Graham Walker to examine the complex issues surrounding the military tensions between Russia, Ukraine, and the West, especially President Biden's recent steps to threaten both economic sanctions and military action in response to Russian activity in the region. We also look at what the Beijing Olympics are revealing about the Chinese Communist regime, which is using the Covid crisis to implement massive and detailed social controls that are not being scaled back as the health crisis recedesand probably never will be. We further consider the increasingly coercive atmosphere in American academe, illustrated by Georgetown University's punishment of Ilya Shapiro for expressing disagreement with the Affirmative Action policy behind President Biden's SCOTUS nomination plan. And of course, there is much more!
