Note the Jewish names of the academics interviewed:

"We can talk about geopolitical and geostrategic reasons for the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which is obviously important, but there's also a subtext that is rarely acknowledged in discussions about violence, which is that there are direct links to gender and, in this case, beliefs about manhood," said Jackson Katz, an expert on gender and violence and author of "Man Enough?: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and the Politics of Presidential Masculinity." "This is the violence, the brutality that is associated with Putin's traditional masculine ideals. It's not just about cosplaying or a silly boy posing as a tough guy. It's not just about image and theatrics. This is actually the concrete and material brutality that is linked to those images and those narratives."
"For a hundred years machismo and hypermasculinity have been really key to the exercise of authoritarian rule," said Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a historian at New York University who studies fascism and authoritarian leaders.

So they talk like they think that masculinity is a bad thing. Yet they then turn right around to recommend that the way to deal with Putin is to indulge his masculinity!

"Putin has gone through a kind of public humiliation," Ben-Ghiat said. "His military has been shown to be less efficient and modernized than we thought. His propaganda apparatus has been shut down abroad. The whole world practically has united against him. So in a situation like that, unfortunately, these male leaders can become kind of nihilistic because they feel like they can't back down."

Katz said there may be a temptation to shame Putin, to punish or mock him, but it's possible for a leader like Putin that will only result in more violence. Ben-Ghiat said the only way to appeal to a leader like Putin is to give him a way to back down that allows him to maintain his belief that he is a strong man.
"But the problem is they don't really back down. If you're this hypermasculine leader and you back down, that's dangerous for you politically in your own country. Someone has to find a solution that allows them to save face so they can project it as a win."

Such a "solution" is not a solution at all. Our duty (note the classic Jewish inversion trick of calling a duty a "temptation") is to shame, punish and mock Putin. If he initiates more violence as a result, that is his fault alone. Our duty then is simply to respond with more retaliatory violence. Ahimsa is about we ourselves never initiating violence, not about indulging those who are inclined to initiate violence so that they do not initiate as much violence as they otherwise might. In fact, by the very action of indulging them, we would become the ones initiating violence in their stead, since all indulgence ultimately means giving them what is not owed to them (ie. stealing for them).

(Yep, you just saw two Jewish academics argue that the best way to stop Putin from stealing is for us to do the stealing for him. That is Jewish logic for you.)
