An excerpt:

Technique: Why should Tech students care about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine? 

The crisis will shape the global order. I know, it’s a grandiose statement. But look at Russia’s actions: they tried to prevent Ukraine from joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), contrary to the principle of self-determination. The invasion itself violates the UN Charter’s prohibition on the use of military force against another state. Russia’s actions are undermining the principles established since the end of World War II.
