Dr. Aaron Kheriaty discusses his must-read book The New Abnormal: The Rise of the Biomedical Security State and traces the roots of the medical tyranny we’ve been experiencing to the Anglosphere and eugenics movement which later was exported to Germany. Postwar principles of medical ethics (e.g. Nuremberg Code) were completely abandoned in 2020. The Biomedical Security State is a public health apparatus that has become militarized and wouldn’t have been possible before the advent of the iPhone in 2007. The definition of “public health” has continued to expand to include social justice (e.g. BLM) and environment (e.g. climate lockdowns) which is a dangerous trend. He discusses how Digital ID and CBDCs will lead to totalitarianism and touches on the religious aspect of the New Abnormal (e.g. scientism, neo-Gnosticism, transhumanism).
