‘Technocratic human beings are spiritually dead. They are capable of anything, no matter how heinous, because they do not reflect upon or question the ultimate goal.’ -Chris Hedges
‘River and ocean turbines for electricity; hydrogen power; urban farms; massive water desalination – these are just a few of the means for making an abundant non-technocratic future. By any rational standard, technocratic idiocy is already obsolete.’ -The Underground, Jon Rappoport
– Again, thanks to Patrick Wood and his book, Technocracy Rising, for expanding my insight into these areas.
Consider the term ‘scientific humanism.’ The Oxford Dictionary offers this definition: ‘A form of humanist theory and practice that is based on the principles and methods of science; specifically the doctrine that human beings should employ scientific methods in studying human life and behaviour, in order to direct the welfare and future of mankind in a rational and beneficial manner… Origin mid-19th century.’
That definition gives you a good general meaning for ‘technocracy.’
Understanding the mindset of technocrats is necessary; they believe that since they can plan the shape of society, they should plan the shape of society.
