Industry says, “Without a public-private partnership, a smart city plan will most likely remain stuck on the drawing board.” Technocracy marches forward on public money that is diverted to private ends, offering one of the biggest scams in history. Of course, they say “It’s good for you”, but the end of Scientific Dictatorship will be a scourge on humanity.
Mix the World Economic Forum with New Urban Agenda, and you get a massive spawning-ground for public-private partnerships. P3 is a blending of public and private financing, most comparable to fascism.
There is no official ‘national standard’ on how to build a smart city, and there are hundreds of giant companies competing for their share of technology sales. Bloomberg Philanthropies aims to change that.
Seattle aspires to be the top global city in America, implementing smart technology everywhere. It is staffing top leadership with Sustainable Development champions who are intent on using scientific methods to achieve total social engineering.
China is asserting its Technocracy core by planning the largest megacity in the history of the world; of course it will also be the ‘smartest’ city with the latest technology and sensors for a fully engineered society.
CityLab is at the heart of Technocracy and Smart Cities, but even they seemingly realize that many cities are being thrown under the bus by their data-crazed leadership.
The Technocrat world and especially Smart Cities is built upon data, mountains and mountains of data; this is nowhere more evident than Seattle, the nation’s most ‘sustainable’ city.
Using citizens as human sensors first requires that they be somehow connected to the ‘grid’. Then, every move, activity and thoughts are monitored, recorded, stored and analyzed. Does this sound like Nineteen Eighty-Four?
The three major topics of Smart Cities are infrastructure, connectivity and Internet of Things. Wherever you see or hear these words, you are touching Technocracy. Trump has already pledged to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure, and he has appointed two infrastructure specialists to his cabinet: Elaine Chao as Secretary of Transportation and Rick Perry as Secretary of Energy. Both were heavily involved in the execution of George W. Bush’s North American Union scheme with Mexico and Canada.
The promise of Utopia in ‘Smart Cities’ is hollow as freedom-destroying surveillance and manipulation drives the value of humanity toward zero.
