Her presentation discusses the birth of the informed consent ethic and draws parallels between Nazi propaganda used to stigmatize Jews as a threat to public health during WWII and today's efforts by government health officials to track the unvaccinated, censor opposing viewpoints about COVID-19 policies and protocols, and restrict movement in society, which poses a threat to freedom.
