SMART is a Technocrat management acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-based, and is used to create peak efficiency. They would like to mislead everyone to think it’s smart as in intellect, but in that sense, it is really dumb.
The Trump Administration apparently does not understand that Smart Cities are at the core of Technocracy’s (and the U.N’s) global strategy. In any case, why should the U.S. be sending money and technology to any nation capable of doing it themselves?
The first paragraph gives it away: “1 billion urban dwellers live in settlements that have emerged outside of the state’s control”. This core of New Urban Agenda is to bring everyone under state control; in other words, as so many other UN documents say, “leave no one behind”.
Technocrats at work: Denver chooses to be a Global City, and has partnered with Panasonic to create the most advanced model of a Smart City in the world!
Technocrats envision a new world where the city-state replaces the nation-state, and cities are multicultural melting pots of humanity. Thus, planning, monitoring and directing is everything.
The technological components of a “smart city,” including everything from smart grids and driverless cars to automated buildings and advanced sensors, can be complicated. But…
The computer titans of the world are rushing to get their share of the multi-trillion dollar market for automation of Smart Cities. This is the essence of Scientific Dictatorship because the UN’s New Urban Agenda calls for complete geo-spatial monitoring of everything within a city.
The theme of this article. based on Smart Cities, wreaks of Technocracy: “Technology makes it cool, but data is what makes it smart.” Citizens of the cities are dehumanized and made into mere objects of being cool and smart.
This article opines, “A common complaint about greenfield smart city deployments is that they’re antiseptic — they lack character”, and they are correct. Technocrats who promote Smart Cities are antiseptic by nature, pushing only efficiency and design; people are merely objects, and sometimes inconveniences, in the design process.
“Sensors, sensors everywhere…The Smart Nation initiative looks to turn the island into a “living laboratory” — a kind of playground for testing smart solutions to urban issues.”
