If, as and when Facebook-like tech giants decide to collude with government to impose their worldview on their constituents, it will be game over for all other forms of government, worldwide. In the case of Mark Zuckerberg, remember that he has highly praised China’s Technocratic model of government, which is highly censored, repressive and manipulative. How could he not impose his beliefs on Facebook America?
The UN’s New Urban Agenda has little direct appeal to the masses, so the logical Technocrat solution is to manipulate the media into selling it for them. Looking beyond the Utopian promises, the UN’s policies will establish a global Technocracy and Scientific Dictatorship.
It is true that Sophia the robot is the magician’s foil to lead people to erroneous observations and conclusions about Artificial Intelligence. In his book, Connectography, Dr. Parag Khanna hints at a better picture of the underlying and enabling role of AI: ”We are building this global society without a global leader. Global order is no longer something that can be dictated or controlled from the top down. Globalization is itself the order.”
The EPA’s new bias against Global Warming and Obama’s Clean Energy plan has angered Technocrats who are pushing for control over all energy. In this report, a New York Times reporter is interviewed by NPR to jointly bash industry and the new direction of the EPA.
Technocrats claim that convenience makes you happy, and in Dubai, its Smart City technology makes everything convenient. However, Dubai is an Islamic dictatorship, where creating a Smart City bypasses all direct input from citizens who must live under it. Scientific Dictatorship promises the moon, but the realization of it will be a dark moon rising, indeed.
Over the millennia, mankind has worshipped the sun, molten and carved idols, other men, animals and rocks; now, AI enters as the latest contender for man’s worshipful attention, and it’s growing in stature.
Chinese leadership has been dominated by Technocrats for at least 20 years, which has led observers to declare the China is a Technocracy rather than a Communist dictatorship. The United Nations extolls China’s leadership as the best in the world to achieve Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy.
A leading provider of Internet of Things technology for Smart Cities, Silver Sprint Networks tells us that Americans are in love with the idea of Smart Cities. The study only sampled 505 consumers, which is apparently sufficient for these Technocrats to conclude that the whole country feels the same way.
Sweden is headed toward direct Technocracy and leads Europe in New Urban Agenda policies, but it has not curtailed unsustainable consumption. Who decides what is sustainable consumption or not? The same Technocrats who shoved Technocracy down their throat in the first place.
Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy, is an unworkable economic model that will self-destruct as its proponents foolishly worship at the alter of Utopia. I cannot find a single legitimate economist who has done a deep analysis on Technocracy and concluded that Utopia has finally arrived. It has not, will not, cannot.
