Posted on 03/03/2010 3:55:49 AM PST by RightSideNews
Sustainable consumption? Reconfiguring businesses, infrastructure and institutions? What do these words mean? They do not mean merely reshuffling the existing order, but rather replacing it with a completely new economic system, one that has never before been seen or used in the history of the world.
This paper will demonstrate that the current crisis of capitalism is being used to implement a radical new economic system that will completely supplant it. This is not some new idea created in the bowels of the United Nations: It is a revitalized implementation of Technocracy that was thoroughly repudiated by the American public in 1933, in the middle of the Great Depression. The Technocrats have resurfaced, and they do not intend to fail a second time. Whether or not they succeed this time will depend upon the intended servants of Technocracy, the citizens of the world. Indeed, the dark horse of the New World Order is not Communism, Socialism or Fascism. It is Technocracy.

I can see clear advantages in smart grid technology but I can also see the potential to punish and control with it.
Or to negate it altogether with a massive EMP strike, thereby rendering the technology virtually useless.
This smart grid has shades of the old eastern europe way of heating homes in it. In a city, there is a central hot water heating plant, then the hot water is distributed throughout the city to heat homes. IT seems to me that it must be terribly inefficient so I always wondered why they did it. The reason is control. Piss off the local Komissar and all of a sudden you find yourself without heat when its -20 outside.
Then I got to thinking about the rivalry between Edison and Tesla. The knock against Edison’s electric grid design was that you would need a power plant every few blocks because he was using DC whereas Tesla had designed an AC system so the power could be transmitted over large distances from a large centralized plant. If one of Edison’s plants had gone down, no big deal - go a few blocks away and someone would have power. One of our large centralized power plants goes down or a tree branch takes out a transmission line in Ohio and suddenly there is chaos and disorder in a quarter of the country.
Anyone else remember a year or two ago when they wanted to install thermostats in some part of CA that could be controlled by some bureaucrat?
A terrible idea. Anywhere it’s being tried (like Boulder Colorado) massively over budget, huge expenses hidden in state budget, original funding structures completely misleading, legal battles between utility providers and state offices over who will pay millions in extra costs, hundreds of thousands in overcharges, big privacy concerns.. in other words another liberal ‘solution’ to a non-existent problem.
It was also Technocrats who pushed for Keynesian economics. These people never address the misery they cause.
For more on this technocracy driven thinking see:
Examples provided of our this has been used to change individual behavior in European countries include a 20% increase in use of public transport in one city and 12% decrease in private car transport in another city. It’s massive behavioral engineering by bureaucrats and technicians who just ‘know what’s good for you’. Anyone else see this as precursor to a very Pavlovian future?
This "central control" is so much BS.
Technocracy must be seen for what it is: An attempt to impose a totalitarian, scientific dictatorship. In 1933, it called for the inauguration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt as dictator in order to “pave the way for economic revolution.” Fortunately at the time, they failed in their attempted coup.
If today’s Smart Grid is successfully completed, it will enable the conversion of our existing economic system into something far different and far worse. This is why the American people repudiated Technocracy in 1933, and this is exactly why we (and citizens around the world) should thoroughly repudiate it today.
Took way too long to get to the “bottom line”.
I didn’t like it when local utilities sold out, I belong to a private coop utility, however, today most utilities are so integrated into the present grid system, that they are more dependent on each other than ever before. That said, they all seem very suspicious of government efforts at intervention in the private power generation business, as am I. The solution to smart grid is private power generation, and insulation from government intervention.
I also don’t think adding another word technocracy to describe the numerous words we now have to describe what has been going on for centuries, is productive.
Communism, statism, Socialism, leftism, liberalism, do just fine explaining the myriad ways that totalitarians, have of applying their godless, power grabbing, Utopian ideas to freedom loving people.
I believe Tehnocracy was to be a government based on the laws of thermodynamics with engineers making decisions rather than politicians.
The Tavistock Institute and the Rand corporation provide much of the intellectual material for social engineering. They’re centers or think tanks for international socialism, population control and totalitarian ‘Utopianism’.
And coming to our homes soon if we don't resist.
I do remember that and I am afraid that will one day be the law of the land. California also proposed some legislation banning home schooling. They are very PROGRESSIVE. Progessive sounds like a good thing. Funny how the left uses benign or beneficial words to describe anything but. They routinely twist the meaning of words in an effort to confuse and the tactic seems to work. Social Justice is another example of something that sounds good and desirable but is actually code for something nefarious. Unfortunately our yound people have been schooled in this deception.
