Speaking of the 2011 Greece crisis, this professor says, “There were decisions that were made for them and then they just had to have a more or less technocratic government and get it through.”
Scientific Progressivism is the lust of Technocrats and the scourge of humanity. Hacking the human body to create more efficient high-tech killing machines cannot possibly advance humanity.
DARPA is piled high with Technocrats who invent advanced military applications for the armed forces. Ethical and moral considerations are foreign to the discussion as to the wisdom of building dystopian killing machines.
A new global arms race? Forget nukes, it’s killer robots. Any nation or terrorist group with a screwdriver can join the melee to build killer robots. To the Technocrat mindset, it’s a much more efficient way to destroy things and kill people
Certain frequencies that do not normally appear in nature in harmful intensities, can be used as a potent weapon leading to incapacitation, vomiting, organ damage and heart attacks. Yet another Technocrat solution to social engineering.

It is amazing that NPR would print anything on the CIA’s infamous and horrific MK-Ultra program from the Cold War era. Repatriated Technocrat scientists from Nazi Germany played a key role after WWII.
Technocrats at defense contractors have developed a hybrid targeting system using drones and AI that find their own targets, then coordinate with artillery-launch missiles for destruction.
Talking lasers can send audible messages directly into your head from up to hundreds of miles away. When perfected, this technology will be used by military and civilian applications to control crowds and individuals.
