Technocracy and Control

Every Financial Crisis, the Technocrats Rear Their Heads

Will the outcome be different this time?

Every 40–50 years, the US has a financial reckoning of sorts. In the 1930’s, we had the Great Depression. In the 70’s, we had to contend with the oil shock, terrible inflation, and Nixon disconnecting the dollar from Gold. In 2008 we had the “Great Financial Crisis” (GFC), which honestly, hasn’t ended. The global economy has been held together via slieght-of-hand, and duct tape — and now we’re staring at the giant pile of all those cans we kicked down the proverbial road.

Why does it seem that each time we’re on the brink of a major financial crisis, the adherants of technocracy show up on the scene?

The word technocracy comes from the Greek “tekne” (skilled) and “kratos” (rule).

The best definition for Technocracy I could possibly give comes straight from the documents of the Technocracy movement itself. Behold, as self-defined in the publication “The Technocrat”:

Technocracy 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 of this continent. For the first time in human history it will be done as a scientific, technical, engineering problem.

“What is Technocracy?”, The Technocrat, Vol. 3, №4, 1938.

Zbigniew Brzezinki’s book “Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technotronic Era” (1970) also provides some insight into their desires:

[The Technotronic Era] involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled and directed society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how. Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keep society under close surveillance and control.

Sound familiar?

The idea for technocracy has actually been around quite a long time — since the mid-late 1850’s.

At the time of the Great Depression, the technocacy movement was gaining many adherents, and even pushed president Roosevelt (FDR) to institute various aspects of the movement. They were successful with some, but thankfully not others. In 1934, FDR caused all Americans to sell their gold back to the government under criminal penalty, but at least he did not, for example, set himself up as a dictator like they wanted.

The technocracy movement is a big part of the reason that David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski got together to create the Trilateral Commission in 1968. This small but extremely influential group has had dozens of members who’ve been presidential advisors since Jimmy Carter.

Beyond this, we need to understand that the movement never really went away, and has skillfully been moving peices and making arrangements and plans behind the scenes for decades. They play the long game. Most recently, we are seeing this movement manifest via the World Economic Forum (WEF) with their call for the “Great Reset” and the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” — both of which greatly overlap with the tenets of Technocracy. And of course, we are again facing major financial problems, only this time, it is on a truly global scale.

The important takeaway is that when the economy looks to be faltering, or else the politicians themselves are, the door opens for change, even significant change. As such citizens are open to large, even systemic, changes. Globalists wait for such moments to strike.

When current social and economic systems and institutions seem like they are on the verge of failing, the technocrats show up with a plan, generally via NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) and Public-Private partnerships. This time they are showing up with an extremely thorough, well-defined plan — some of which has already been enacted in recent years.

You might have seen some of the aspects of this plan, as there are multiple pieces that are all part of the larger whole:

These types of planned changes are generally not voted upon by the public. One example is CCS — Common Core Standards in education. In case you were wondering where that came from, it was courtesy of Bill and Melinda Gates and part of the UN’s Agenda 21 action plan, with its origins going all the way back to the 1992 Earth Summit under President George H W Bush.

Many of you may be thinking “what’s the problem? That system sounds good and we need major change.” Well, let’s take a look at what I haven’t yet told you about this system called technocracy:

  • It is not a representative system, it is not democratic
  • It is collectivist, even anti-individualist
  • There is no national sovereignty
  • It is fundamentally anti-human

Now again we are facing a serious financial crisis, and again the elite are telling us that this whole world and the social contract we are in must change. To quote Klaus Scwab:

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a great reset of capitalism.”

So why does this happen when there are global financial problems? Is it a lack of confidence in a fiat system that was always designed to fail? Are people at the point where they’re willing to give up freedom and privacy for perceived safety and stability?

Or is it simply the type of government and economic system that was already planned out ahead of time in the event of true catastrophic financial failure and societal breakdown?

Here’s what to consider also happened during the periods: the ultra-wealthy international bankers are always going to go where the money is. When the power balance shifted from England to the US after WWII, they came here. Then the doors opened to China back in the 70’s, and that is where the globalists went, and we’re now seeing the fruits of the abundance of money that flowed into China after they were convinced to open their doors for commerce.

But where are the elites and international bankers to go if all the major countries and world powers are in debt?

Where to go once all countries have been exploited?

Well, they are going to go to the next place, and in our highly connected technological world, this means they are going to the virtual realm, and on a global scale. This is a big part of the reason why after COVID-19 we are seeing a rush to get everything digitized, and get everyone online. Everything from Zoom to Starlink Internet satellites is a part of it, whether knowingly or not.

The reality is that we are fast moving to an online world. Today the technology is now present for the technocrats to believe they can finally pull off this highly monitored and controlled world. Between machine learning, AI, 5G and drones, they are seeing the world as a sandbox, and businesses and institutions are going to get knocked down and remade into an image that is pleasing to the elites.

Regardless what you believe about the nature of the pandemic, its source, etc. one thing that is very clear is that the global leaders are on board to exploit this for as much as they can get out of it. They have actually admitted as such — that this is the time for a “reset” — but everything must be hurried along so they can meet their Sustainable Development Goals for Agenda 2030, the Green New Deal, and the Great Reset.

While they have been busy planning the remaking of the entire world, the rest of us are still down here facing the fact that we are probably at the end of the fiat currency system. And because technocracy is not exactly democratic, and because the elites want people to be fully reliant on the state, the elites have little incentive to actually rescue this financial system.

Instead, they want a new system, and they want a system that ensures every single thing and person is tracked and accounted for, not just the dollars in your digital wallet, but every orange tree and head of lettuce, every geolocation, and literally everything in between.

You may have seen the headlines for livestock in British Columbia to be individually tracked by 2022. You may have heard about the new smart era in food safety by the FDA to track an increasing amount of produce. You may have heard that the Nevada governor is calling on tech companies to purchase land dubbed “innovation zones” and effectively have the tech companies form the government of these areas. Every one of these is part of the Technocracy movement

Expect to see sensors everywhere, in public and in your home, on your body and inside of your body. Smart pill technology already exists, and of course we have wearables already.

With the implementation of 5G, it is not at all difficult to see how a control grid is effectively being set up. After all, if they’re not going to rescue the financial system next time, they expect quite a lot of social unrest.

I’ve studied quite a bit about the world they envision, and I don’t want anything to do with it. Many of the goals themselves are laudable, however it’s the intention of non-democratic, authoritarian control behind them that’s the dealbreaker for me.

The idea of everyone supposedly having exactly what they need sounds utopian — until you realize that it will be only exactly what you need, and nothing more, and that neither you, nor any representative of the people, will have any choice in what you actually need.

See, in a technocracy, it’s all up to the “experts”, which again, doesn’t sound too bad until you realize that you don’t pick them and you don’t vote for them, and you don’t vote for the people who appoint them either. It is a rule by decree which has no place in a democracy, and it is a fully centrally planned Soviet-style economy which honestly has no basis in reality, let alone on a global scale.

More and more, regular citizens and consumers are seeing the immense benefits of decentralized systems. The Internet has had a huge impact, and more recently the advent of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, both being decentralized.

With the recent events at the capital, and the hunting down of so-called domestic terrorists and the de-platforming of individuals who don’t agree with the official narrative, the need is crystal clear that we need systems that are not centralized.

My hope is that citizens can build a parallel economy and a parallel society in which we do not need to rely on governments, whether technocratic or not, to function.

Do you live in a rural or suburban area? Too bad — everyone into the smart cities where we can track everything! Still don’t want to move? Well, soon we’re going to stop water, sewage, and garbage service outside of the city because it’s not “sustainable”. What about your home you say? Don’t worry, everyone will have a pitifully small gray apartment in a many floor building in the smart city, and there will be sensors in every room, and there will be government-issued smart home devices and wearables that you’ll be required to wear at all times.

I’m not exaggerating so much as I am extrapolating from the generous amount of information that’s been provided by the World Economic Forum on their vision for the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

It’s more of a hijacking of technology, finance, and global governance than it is a revolution.

I can’t speak for anyone but myself, but I don’t want a revolution if it means I won’t be able to own property afterward. If that’s not a wake up call for you, I don’t know what it will take.

Make no mistake, this is not the same as socialism or communism, though it will share the lack of property ownership, the central planning, and authoritarian government of communism. This is also not capitalism because there will be no more free markets, and there will be equal outcome for everyone, as opposed to equal opportunity.

Again, their words, not mine (equal outcome). Do we think we’ll all be wealthy? Let’s get real, the standard of living for most developed countries would decline significantly.

This Great Reset agenda is already in motion. They thought they could be slick by having these changes appear to come from grassroots efforts at local levels through an organization they call the Global Shapers. These “Shaper” groups are already present in over 440 cities across the globe, and their mandate is to simply accomplish the bidding of the elites, and force us into a fully controlled, automated “sustainable” world where we lose our basic human freedoms as well as our property rights as the “experts” take over.

If you do not want to live in this world, I highly suggest that you find and support or create as many decentralized systems and services as you can, and find ways to be as self-reliant as possible, inside of a community of like-minded patriots (you know, the domestic terrorists). We need to push back of course, but more importantly, we cannot do it alone and we will need to heavily rely on those in our communities.

Each time we have been on the brink of financial disaster, global leaders somehow pulled a rabbit out of their hat. The system nearly died in 2008 and right now it’s on life-support while they figure out the next thing. Band-Aids won’t work this time, But I personally believe it is possible to continue on and transition our monetary and financial system without having to completely rewrite the social contract.

Maybe Bitcoin can play a part in that. In fact, this may be the reason Bitcoin exists.

Perhaps they’ll find another system to string us along for a few more years; perhaps it would be better if it all utterly fails and we can get some sort of a fresh start — but their idea seems to potentially involve debt forgiveness for turning over your property.

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, and perhaps more importantly, let’s plan accordingly.
