#174: Return to Nuremberg (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

Bret Weinstein | DarkHorse Podcast

May 27, 2023

In this 175th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.

In the last three years we have witnessed mass violations of the Hippocratic Oath, and of the Nuremberg Code. Which of the 10 principles of the Code have been breached during Covid—or indeed, have any notbeen? Why is the WHO simultaneously crowing about pushing Covid vaccines on Africans, and launching a fear campaign against salt? When did the propaganda and marketing arm take over our public health agencies? Meanwhile, Scientific American is making a bid for worst public health take by arguing that exclusively breastfeeding your infant is neither nature’s way, nor important. And The Atlantic Monthly enters the fray by saying the quiet part out loud, admitting that the Covid vaccines were in fact one very large experiment on an uninformed populace, who could therefore not give consent.
