Khanna calls for “direct Technocracy” in America. When he states that “technocracy is not a liberal phenomenon”, he is wrong. The original root of Technocracy has always been progressivism and is anti-liberty to the core. One original definition of Technocracy states that it is “the science of social engineering, the scientific operation of the entire social mechanism to produce and distribute goods and services to the entire population…”
The technocrat focuses on economy, infrastructure, industry and scientific analysis, but does not give credence to politicians. Citizens are largely left out of the discussion.
Parag Khanna calls for a “direct Technocracy” in America to replace what he calls a dysfunctional democracy. It is a radical and anti-American philosophy where everything and everyone would be run by “experts”.
As I predicted in Goodbye Democracy, Hello Technocracy, the calls for the demise of democracy are increasing, paving the way for ‘rule by experts.’ Technocrats have total disdain for the Constitution, political representation and politicians, and thus do not even acknowledge its existence, calling us a Democracy instead.
Technocrats generally hate politicians and representative government, so it is understandable that they are in a frenzy to stop onslaught against them.
The United Nations is the primary driver of Technocracy on a global basis, through Sustainable Development, Green Economy and Natural Capitalism. It is also notable that Rockefeller family interests have used the UN for their dream of domination over humanity.
A must-read article correctly connects the stampede for cashless banking with totalitarian police states, where ownership of data mean ownership of people.
A young libertarian student has understood one glaring deficiency in Technocracy, namely, that values pragmatism far greater than political and ethical philosophy.
China was largely converted to a Technocracy by 2000, and Singapore is considered the ‘smartest’ and connected city in the world. Khanna points out that the world, sans America, is racing toward technocratic governance.
A tectonic-level battle could soon take place over the fundamental structure of America, and hardly anyone sees it coming. Nevertheless, I am making a bold prediction for 2017.
