Connor Freeman Interviewed on Cold War 2.0 by Reed Coverdale and David Spuria

by | Aug 28, 2022

Earlier this month, I did a series of interviews covering a wide range of foreign policy topics with the great Reed Coverdale and David Spuria.

On the Naturalist Capitalist, Reed and I discuss the continuity between the Trump and Biden administrations, highlighting Washington’s aggressive polices that could lead to war with Russia, China, and Iran. We also have a conversation about early influences, as well as becoming libertarians and antiwar activists. We discuss the failures of the Trump administration, what happened to John McCain/Hillary Clinton style hawks, and how Bernie Sanders was always a fraud. Of course, we talk about neocons and in particular Josh Rogin’s Washington Post piece calling for concurrent confrontations with Moscow and Beijing.

This interview was conducted on August 14th.

In my interview with David Spuria, we talked about the Ukraine war, the risks of increasing sabotage attacks inside Crimea, and the possibility of disaster due to shelling aimed at the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP). We also cover Washington’s policy of attempting to bleed Russia in a 1980s Afghanistan style proxy war of attrition. We discuss Western interventions to thwart diplomacy and kill potential peace talks between Moscow and Kiev, plus some recent escalations with China. This interview took place on August 20th.
