Dennis Behreandt is a writer, the publisher of The New American magazine, and author of Endgame: Covid and the Dark State Quest for Bio-Digital Convergence in a Transhumanist World.
Covid-19 has been the agent for a massive transformation of our society and the freedoms and individual rights we hold dear. Consider all that’s unfolded in the government’s response to COVID. We have been told which businesses were essential and which were not. The government response has forever impacted our economy, our transportation systems, our energy infrastructure, our educational institutions, our health care system, our free exercise of religion, the censorship of free speech, and a desire for control never before witnessed by many in our lifetime.
Dennis speaks of the 3-fold guiding ideological beliefs behind those in power: 1) The belief that humankind, collectively, is fundamentally flawed, but could be improved by eliminating the flawed and perfecting the rest. 2) There are too many people in the world and this puts the world at risk. 3) New technologies will create new hordes of unnecessary [nonessential] people.
Our guest today addresses these and other issues in his book, End Game: Covid and the Dark State Quest for Bio-Digital Convergence in a Transhumanist World.
