Paul Maillet is a retired colonel from the Canadian military and a full-time peace activist. Sam Lanfranco is a retired professor of economics and a member of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). We discuss the lessons and dilemmas for policymakers from the unexpected invasion of Ukraine. He fully expects the Ukrainians to prevail eventually because it would take a million soldiers to occupy a country of 44 million if they fail to cooperate. But in the meantime the destruction may be ghastly. We discuss nonviolent resistance strategies and the new way of fighting with economic measures. Sam Lanfranco joins us late but can report on discussions within the Internet governing bodies as to how. best to use the Internet during and after this conflict.

We produce several one-hour-long Zoom conversations each week about various aspects of six issues we address. You can watch them live and send a question to the speakers or watch the edited version later here or on our Youtube channel.
