In this episode of The Source, we talk with author and independent journalist Fabian Scheidler about the theories surrounding the Nord Stream pipeline bombing and which one is most plausible one year later. Then we examine the significance of an incident in the Canadian Parliament where politicians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, mistakenly gave a standing ovation to a former SS Nazi officer. Then we discuss the hypocrisy of the German Green party and why they changed their position on climate, war and other issues after coming to power. Finally, we analyze Austria’s long-standing policy of neutrality, including toward the war in Ukraine, and what lessons we can learn from it.
