Scott interviews co-founder of CODEPINK Medea Benjamin about the antiwar movement and the risks brought about by the war in Ukraine. They start out with a discussion of how the antiwar movement has evolved since the George W. Bush years before digging into the need for off-ramps in the conflict against Russia. Benjamin argues the war fever in Washington is blinding the establishment to the risks and that the war-caused economic turmoil which lies ahead will breed unrest across the globe.
