Another snow day here on the west coast. The campus is closed today as have been highways on the island over the weekend. Ferry runs were cancelled with one being turned back to Nanaimo from Horseshoe Bay due to dock damage.
Last week we heard about the coming ice age, something that is now being entertained by those who were concerned about Global Warming until recently. Things are not panning out as had been predicted.
Prediction, it turns out, is the bedrock of science these days. A discipline that was once founded on evidence and empiricism turned the corner in the 20th century, particularly when the term Technocracy was coined in 1933. The new philosophy was that scientists were in a special class and were not to be questioned or doubted, not unlike the priesthood of previous centuries.
Patrick M. Wood’s book Technocracy Rising provides unique insights into the way that the scientific world began to intersect with politics and globalism. In fact, Technocracy, not Socialism, Fascism or Communism is, in his words, the dark horse of the New World Order.
The following comes directly from the description on Amazon of Mr. Wood’s work and provides a fitting foundation for today’s show:
With meticulous detail and an abundance of original research, Patrick M. Wood uses Technocracy Rising to connect the dots of modern globalization in a way that has never been seen before so that the reader can clearly understand the globalization plan, its perpetrators and its intended endgame.
In the heat of the Great Depression during the 1930s, prominent scientists and engineers proposed a utopian energy-based economic system called Technocracy that would be run by those same scientists and engineers instead of elected politicians. Although this radical movement lost momentum by 1940, it regained status when it was conceptually adopted by the elitist Trilateral Commission (co-founded by Zbigniew Brzezinski and David Rockefeller) in 1973 to be become its so-called “New International Economic Order.”
In the ensuing 41 years, the modern expression of Technocracy and the New International Economic Order is clearly seen in global programs such as Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Councils of Governments, Smart Growth, Smart Grid, Total Awareness surveillance initiatives and more.
Wood contends that the only logical outcome of Technocracy is Scientific Dictatorship, as already seen in dystopian literature such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (1932) and Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell (1948), both of whom looked straight into the face of Technocracy when it was still in its infancy.
With over 250 footnotes, an extensive bibliography and clarity of writing style, Wood challenges the reader to new levels of insight and understanding into the clear and present danger of Technocracy, and how Americans might be able to reject it once again.”
Patrick Wood appeared on “Caravan To Midnight” with John B. Wells in March, 2015, well before the political waters were muddied on so many other levels. If anything, his observations are more relevant today as we cut through the partisan politics and focus on the things that we are being distracted from through the mass manipulation of media and the message generally.
