#148 An Outbreak of Governance (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
Manage episode 346252429 series 2524025
In this 148th 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.
This week, we discuss elections and democracy. What happens if we start investigating the relationship between pharma/Pfizer and the public health apparatus? Are there any patriots left in politics? We also discuss twitter, Elon Musk, and the “pause” being taken by some former advertisers on twitter. Then: what precisely is going on with the bivalent vaccines against Covid—is it whiz-bang scientific cleverness, or whiz-bang scientific recklessness? Finally, what is the difference between black-face and woman-face?
