Does Superdeterminism save Quantum Mechanics? Or does it kill free will and destroy science?

This is a video I have promised you almost two years ago: How does superdeterminism make sense of quantum mechanics? It’s taken me a long time to finish this because I have tried to understand why people dislike the idea that everything is predetermined so much. I hope that in this video I have addressed the biggest misconceptions. I genuinely think that discarding superdeterminism unthinkingly is the major reason that research in the foundations of physics is stuck.

If you want to know more about superdeterminism, these two papers (and references therein) may give you a good starting point:
