About Human Flourishing
Welcome to Aaron Kheriaty’s writings on bioethics, health policy, and society. Dr. Kheriaty regularly posts updates here on his legal efforts to oppose coercive medical mandates, to advocate for transparency from public health agencies, and to promote just public policies.
The real division today is no longer left/right, liberal/conservative, or even Democrat/Republican. It is between those who will accept a technocratic biosecurity surveillance regime and those who will resist.
