Recently in Russia, there was a commemoration of victory over the German National Socialist Regime in World War II. In his speech, President Putin spoke more pointedly, if vaguely, about his intentions with the invasion of Ukraine.
That invasion has brought attention to big questions: Has the post WWII international order come to an end? Has the Enlightenment run out of gas? How successful will Russia and China be in their new alliance with a new vision of our world in deference to ethnic theocracies? Will there be famine among the poor and the innocent? What is the meaning of Europe? Are Russians part of Europe? Do we need ethical principles? What of global capitalism with inflation and supply chain dysfunctions?
Please join us at 9:00 am (CST) on Tuesday, May 24, for a Zoom round table on these questions and other relevant points.
