Flint’s Crisis Is About More Than Water – Not a Democrat or Republican Issue-It is Technocracies

technocracy01The term technocracy was first used publicly by W.H. Smythe in his 1919 article, “Industrial Management”.

The word itself is derived from the Greek words “techne”, meaning skilled and “kratos”, meaning rule. Thus, it is government by skilled engineers, scientists and technicians as opposed to elected officials.

In order for Technocracy to succeed, it is necessary to have in place a comprehensive system for the orderly management of all humans and all facets of societal operation. This includes the economic, political, social and religious. Furthermore, these areas must not be merely compatible; they must be so thoroughly entangled with each other that distinctions among them will not be obvious to their subjects. Indeed, this is the “holistic” approach to global governance.

==Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation (Wood, Patrick M.)

We have a vicious, pedantic, academic cadre running America. They are technocrats, without any emotion except hatred for their political enemies. They do not consider ISIS their political enemy. They don’t even care about ISIS. It’s nothing to them. They all think like a community organizer, who cares about nothing but fighting the domestic opposition party. There is no such thing as a foreign power to them. Their only foreign power is the Republican Party.
==Government Zero: No Borders, No Language, No Culture (Savage, Michael)

The primacy of profit throughout the society takes precedence over life itself, including the life of the most vulnerable. This corporate system of power knows no limits. It has no internal restraints. It will sacrifice all of us, including our children, on the altar of corporate greed. In a functioning judicial system, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Flint’s former emergency manager, Darnell Earley, along with all the regulatory officials who lied as a city was being sickened, would be in jail facing trial.
