As predicted by Dr. Parag Khanna in Connectography, global cities are slated to eclipse the nation-state in controlling the world’s economy and societal structure. The UN is pushing this agenda with the New Urban Agenda and the 2030 Agenda initiatives.
U.N members rejected the formation of a new ‘supra’ organization that would control the New Urban Agenda, but a the same time pushed the Agenda way forward. The rise of the global city is upon us, and the meme will be dominated by Technocracy.
Technocracy and Scientific Dictatorship will be confirmed as the rise of Smart Cities and the Internet of Things become ubiquitous: sensors everywhere, massive data collection and analysis, complete surveillance and tracking of everything that moves.
The major global mantra of building global cities (aka Smart Cities) is fanned by so-called Christian churches who are more interested in establishing cities than their own congregations. Pastors of mega-churches have traded their calling to shepherd individuals in favor of become community organizers to ‘save’ their cities.
The rise of global cities, all of which will be Smart Cities, will be driven by Technocracy and its need for a Total Awareness Society. The juggernaut of Sustainable Development (aka Technocracy) is on fire thanks to the love for money, and there are trillions to be had.
When someone comes to your city and says, “Hi, I’m from Google and I am here to fix your city!”, you should slam the door and call the police. Google has a big enough ego to think that the whole of cities are just waiting for deliverance. Not.
China is planning for 50 Smart Cities like Shanghai as Internet of Things (IOT) takes off everywhere, but project managers are in a security tornado. The Technocrats who design for the IoT were not concerned about security so devices don’t interoperate with any common structure.
Building infrastructure is the mantra associated with building smart cities and connecting them together. Tech-enhanced infrastructure means Technocrats will be in charge of it.
The undercurrent of this article connects trade to Fintech and Smart Cities, both of which are tightly related to Sustainable Development, which is Technocracy. This further indicates the the Trump Administration has no awareness of Technocracy or the nefarious plans of the United Nations to overthrow Capitalism and Free Enterprise.
The IoT connects inanimate objects and humans in real time in order to monitor all facets of the societal machinery. Technocrats are at the heart of it, with the intent of fulfilling Technocracy.
