Episode 479 Nonviolence Against War

Both Both Bruce Flattery and Arthur Edelstein are interested in nonviolence, including especially Gandhi’s and Gene Sharp’s thinking. Is there any way of applying nonviolence to stop the war in Ukraine? We consider the possibility of Ukrainians’ using civilian based defence against an invasion by Russia, along the lines of the resistance by Danes against Nazis in World War II. Such a plan would require advance planning, and it is probably too late for that now. It is more likely (though still very unlikely) that Russians would bring down their own leadership. for the video, audio podcast, transcript and public comments: https://tosavetheworld.ca/episode-479-nonviolence-against-war.
