We Were Warned About Technocracy
We Were Warned About Technocracy BY: PATRICK WOOD for Technocracy
After having written two books on Technocracy, reviewed over 230 important historical books and posted almost 4,000 related stories, there is a tendency to think that the subject is exhausted.
But, it is not.
Almost every day some new thing pops up that surprises me, whether from industry, academia or government. Historical tidbits constantly surface that show how analysts foresaw our current trajectory decades earlier. Modern scholars often write openly about Technocracy and Technocrats, especially in Europe or Asia, and yet America largely remains in the dark.
As I present my findings in public forums, whether speaking or writing, I am constantly aware of some kind of invisible wall that keeps the message from being fully understood or propagated. For instance, I have sent dozens of review copies of books to key centers of influence around the country, but how many reviews have actually been published? Hardly any. I have presented to elected officials, attorneys, civic leaders and scientists. How many have embraced any understanding of Technocracy? Again, hardly any.
However, for all the people who have confirmed their understanding and alarm of Technocracy, I am fully convinced that the material is easy enough to understand for anyone who is willing to understand it. Apparently, most are not willing. In some cases, people are too distracted with other things to pay attention. In other cases, people turn a blind eye because they find themselves profiting off some aspect of Technocracy and don’t want to upset their own applecart.
Whatever the case, America is largely missing the many siren calls for radical change in America. Here is a case in point.
Dr. Parag Khanna, a leading global scholar promoting Technocracy, speaks to elite groups all around the world. With bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and a PhD from the London School of Economics, Khanna has written several highly esteemed books on various aspects of globalization.
