Populism and Technocracy are at opposite ends of the political spectrum, so what better application of the Hegelian Dialectic that merging them together by thesis-antithesis-synthesis? Technopopulism is in vogue but Technocrats will win if it continues.
This might be considered a weak link, but Washington Post themselves came up with the idea that Technocrats are infiltrating the Trump Administration. At the least, this lends support to the new political philosophy sweeping Europe, called ‘Technopopulism’, or a blend of Populism and Technocracy.
This article is thought-provoking, attempting to make the case that robotization will make the world better and create more employment. Although there are individual instances where this may be true, there are horrible pitfalls that are ignored.
Technocrats in Europe are masters of interjecting fear at just the right moment in order to shift political power to themselves. Politicians and citizens are little more than ‘useful idiots’ used to further the Technocrat agenda, or the scientific social engineering of the whole continent.
Technopopulism is rising at an alarming rate in Europe and England and can be seen in the United States as well. Articles describing the phenomenon are appearing almost weekly in the foreign press, and it is being discussed in leading academic think-tanks like The Brookings Institution.
The Brookings Institution is an elitist, Trilateral Commission connected think tank in Washington. When they write on Technopopulism, you can bet that it has arrived and had better be considered, because Italy is now a model of what is happening in the U.S.
Castellani believes that “far from being foes, technocracy and populism are increasingly becoming allies in a war against a common enemy: representative democracy and traditional politicians.” Whether intentional or not, a major European nation was just flipped into Technocracy by Populists.
Techno-populism, a curious blend of Populism and Technocracy, is rising in Europe and is being openly discussed. However, the same phenomenon is seen in the U.S. with Trump (populism) partnering with Technocrats. Because the Technocrats wind up being the only people able to run complex systems, they end up with the upper hand.
This is a watershed phenomenon in Italy where Technocrats and Populists are melding together to further common goals. However, note that the real reins of power are held by Technocrats. TN has previously suggested that the global populist movement would ultimately support Technocracy, the goal of which is to decentralize and weaken national governments.
