A deeper understanding of technocracy

A deeper understanding of technocracy

by Jon Rappoport

December 26, 2016

Technocracy is the basic agenda and plan for ruling global society from above, so we need to understand it from several angles.

Consider a group of enthusiastic forward-looking engineers in the early 20th century. They work for a company that has a contract to manufacture a locomotive.

This is a highly complex piece of equipment.

On one level, workers are required to make the components to spec. Then they must put them all together. These tasks are formidable.

On another level, various departments of the company must coordinate their efforts. This is also viewed as a technological job. Organizing is considered a technology.

When the locomotive is finished and delivered, and when it runs on its tracks and pulls a train, a great and inspiring victory is won.

And then…the engineers begin to think about the implications. Suppose the locomotive was society itself? Suppose society was the finished product? Couldn’t society be put together in a coordinated fashion? And couldn’t the “technology of organizing things” be utilized for the job?

Why bother with endlessly arguing and lying politicians? Why should they be in charge? Isn’t that an obvious losing proposition? Of course it is.

But engineers could lay out and build a future society that would benefit all people. Hunger, disease, and poverty could be wiped out. Eliminating them would be part of the uncompromising blueprint.

This “insight” hit engineers and technicians like a ton of bricks. Of course! All societies had been failures for the same reason: the wrong people were in charge.

Armed with this new understanding, engineers of every stripe began to see what was needed. A revolution in thinking about societal organization. Science was the new king. And science would rule.

Of course, for an engineered world to work, certain decisions would have to be made about the role of the individual. Every individual. You couldn’t have an air-tight plan if every human were free to pursue his own objectives. Too many variables. Too much confusion. Too much conflict. Well, that problem could be solved. The individual’s actions would be tailored to fit the coordinated operations of the planned society.

The individual would be inserted into a pre-ordained slot. He would be “one of the components of the locomotive.” His life would be connected to other lives to produce an exemplary shape.

Yes, this could imply a few problems, but those problems could be worked out. They would have to be worked out, because the overriding goal was the forming of a world organization. What would you do if one bolt (an individual human) in one wheel of a locomotive was the wrong size? You would go back and correct the error. You would re-make the bolt.

Among sincere technocrats, the overall vision superseded the glaring problems.

But…other people entered the game. High-echelon Globalists saw technocracy as a system they could use to control the population. Control was their goal. Period. What happened to the individual in the process was of no concern to them. The individual had freedom or he didn’t have freedom, and the Globalists overtly intended to wipe out that freedom.

Erasing hunger, poverty, illness? Nonsense. For the Globalists, those realities would be exacerbated. Sick, weak, and debilitated people were easier to rule and control and manage.

Essentially, a vastly misguided vision of a future technocratic utopia was hijacked. Something bad was made much worse.

In a nutshell, this is the history of technocracy.

A locomotive is a society? No. That was the first fatally flawed idea. Everything that followed was increasingly psychotic.

The Matrix Revealed

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)

Unfortunately, many people in our world believe in Globalism, if you could call a partial vague view a legitimate belief. They dreamily float on all the propaganda cover stories—greatest good for the greatest number of people; no more poverty; equality of sharing; reducing the carbon footprint; a green economy; “sustainable development”; international cooperation; engineering production and consumption of goods and services for the betterment of everyone; and all of this delivered from a central platform of altruistic guides.

If you track down the specifics that sit under these pronouncements, you discover you discover a warped system of planning that delivers misery and de facto slavery to the global population.

The collective utopia turns out to be a sham.

Waking up is hard to do? Breaking up is hard to do? They must be done.

A workable technological fix is a very nice achievement when the project is a machine. But transferring that glow of victory to the whole of society is an illusion. Anything that calls itself education would tackle the illusion as the first order of business.

    From Jon Rappoport…

    Are “the people” one group? Well, that’s the ultimate Globalist formulation.

    However, from the point of view of the free individual, things are upside down. It is HIS power that is primary, not the monolithic corporate State’s.

    From his point of view, what does the social landscape look like?


    I’m not talking about organizations that are actually streamlined to produce something of value. I’m talking about organizations that PLAN MORE ORGANIZATION OF LIFE.

    Well, yes. Education is but propaganda. My experience (as a 60 year old, rather than an “impressionable” bright-eyed teen) in earning a degree in Interdisciplinary Art was an exercise in perfecting messaging by using subliminal clues that steer the audience toward acceptance of the power structure through manipulation.

    Thank you, Jon, for your insight into the dark side of technology and the value of individual creativity.

    Bravo, Jon. Fantastic. If I may humbly suggest something, the point about the two meanings of technocracy – actually two words, according to Patrick Wood; one with small t – “technocracy”, meaning “governed by engineers” etc, and the other, with capital T, “Technocracy”, meaning “a new economic system managed by engineers” etc (better descriptions in Patrick Wood’s work). This point I think should be better explained because people often know the first definition, with small t, and so can’t get the full picture and connect to Sustainable Development, Agenda 2030 etc. The first meaning (known) blocks the second (less or un-known), which is the important one. It’s an economic system, not a political system, and while everyone is focused on the political, they miss this new thing eating us from inside – globally.

    That said, very happy to see you talking about this and Mr Wood’s work. Bravo again.

  5. Great analogy, Jon.

    One small point. Never forget that “carbon footprint” is a “friendly” euphemism for “fossil fuels atmospheric pollution” (notably OIL).

      Hello Oddie thinker, tangential off topic post piggybacker extraodinaire. water vapour and Methane are much more dangerous as greenhouse gasses!!!

      CO2 in excess (not too much though) would have the added benefit of increasing rate of plant growth.
      Additionally one good Volcanic belch, like that of Mount St. Helens, goes a long way to equalling the 1800’s input from the industrialisation of the known world at that time.

      I do agree, the effects are now being compounded due to the near exponential increase in car/truck/ship/plane/powerstation exhaust streams, and the additional problems associated with Nox and Sulpher oxides.

      I wish more had been done to resist JP Morgans behaviour against that lovely fellow, Tesla, I would like to have seen what Wardenclyffe and a few other installations similar to it, would have been capable of?
      What say you on this particular subject?

      I love your acerbic criticism, at times, and I must get round to buying one of your books…

      You have spent quite some time, researching some very arcane subject matters, and your exopolitics may come in handy, if they try to pull off Project Bluebeam!

      I should swing by and visit your site soon, I like the black background, as I do a lot of my reading post bedtime, and this reduces light output from my device, and hence reduces likelihood of my partner complaining about the ‘light’ should she wake from her Slumber.

      Seasons Greetings, Ozzie, and I wish you well for the new year.

      All the best,


      p.s. Thanks Jon, for making this widely read comment section so freely available for non-censored conversations, its most appreciated. 😉

        Although I do agree with the first part of your statement RRChief, I disagree with the last part. Seventy percent of the output of global CO2 comes from the ocean.

        Volcanic action coming close to equalling or more CO2 output than an 1800’s industrializing is not so…

        This really is an ocean, planet rather than an earth planet. As we move from a LA NADA to LA NINA with a cooling ocean, and a plunging solar cycle 24 into SC 25. A mount St Helens, although it would add needed CO2. The dust could possible reflect/obscure too much needed sunlight; from my understanding be enough to kick-start ‘A little Ice Age”; although we might just be headed that way anyways;  if not movement towards what could be an ending interglacial to a major ice age. And the fruition of a grander and much longer solar cycle system. Globally average temperature has been dropping. Mount St Helens would be bad this point.

        I remember the last one, and that was a summer that failed.




      • You forget, RRChief, that I spent 3 years selling “ENERGY MANAGEMENT” solutions to the corporations of Australia (which, unsurprisingly were all US or British).

        Volcanos didn’t come up once. Volcanos aren’t the source of any medical cancers.

        In EVERY CASE, without exception, the biggest “risk” from the carbon footprint perspective was the AUTOMOBILE FLEET.

        Welcome when you visit my shores again. I am presently penning another “epic”. Bring a friend. It should be up before year’s end and I hope your positive start to the calendar reset “lasts the distance”. I have always wondered what January 1st could possibly bring that December 31st didn’t (well, other than the cordial hangover) 😉

    This strange idea of technocracy is very disturbing to me. The slow movement towards us identifying ourselves as machine, or machine like; towards the greater goal of AI and the singularity. Even to the point of, not being real. But a mixture of chemical reactions.

    The movement of population and numbers being defined as a human resource, goes so far into destroying individualism.

    The very language itself debases; refugee, immigrant, migrant, social order, status quo, electorate, proletariat, general public, plebeians, masses, citizen. Tugs and pulls at the individual human. At the sovereignty of one.

    The whole idea of over-population, the biggest wheel barrow of bullshit we face, is in itself clawing at your right to be individually superlative here on the water planet LOl. To be autonomous and separate from all of it. Nation, state, religion, gender, culture..you are separate and distinct from all this.  

    Just because others look like you, does not mean that they are the same as you. Or you should be treated like others.

    You are one.

    You enter a store or an office and immediately you must be identified by a number, account number, an email address, a phone number, a fingerprint or stool sample. And nothing can progress until that is completed.

    I went into a Canadian Tire to get my car fixed, a while back…I waited patiently and then was told it was my turn, finally. I was up next in this burgeoning crowd of consumers.

    SALESMAN: Heello. And what can I do for your sir

    MICHAEL THE SMART ASS: *Cough* Good day. I would like you to put a set of spark plugs in my car, and change the oil and put a new oil filter in it please. And could I have a complementary coffee with that…thanks.

    SM: Can I have your phone number and driver license and particulars first sir?

    MTSA: No..here my keys, how long will that take to do that work? I’ll come back and pick it up…say, sometime this afternoon some time? Late afternoon?

    SM: Well…we need a license and a phone number so we can get hold of you and, besides, we need to put your car on the diagnostic machine first.

    MTSA: No you don’t. Why do your need to put it on the machine first?

    SM: It tells us what going on with your car.

    MTSA: But I told you what is going on with the car.  I want a set of sparks plugs and oil change and oil filter. That’s all I want from you…you perform those tasks and I will oblige by paying for the cost of those materials, plus the cost for the mechanic and the appropriate pound of flesh for the government; promptly, that all I want you to do. I don’t even want to know your name. I don’t what know what the machine thinks about my car. In fact I don’t care. I don’t want to meet Mr Canadian Tire. Just do the work that i have asked for…

    SM: We need to put the car on the machine, and I need a phone number, and license, sir.

    MTSA: I don’t have a phone… and I don’t have my license with me, the dog ate it, and I’m waiting for the new one; and besides my license is not pertinent to you fixing my car. Not pertinent to me buying a product from your store.

    SM: You don’t have a phone?

    MTSA: NO…is the diagnostic free?

    SM: No it’s $110…how come you don’t have a phone sir, how can people reach you sir.

    MTSA:  They can’t. I reach them. $110? are you fucking insane…listen carefully, change the spark plugs, change the oil, and oil filter. Tell me when to pick up the fucking car…got it.

    SM :  Are you being hostile sir?  You realize there is a camera up there. We need to put it on the diagnostic machine first…I’ve told you that.

    MTSA: Hostile…lol, really. Do you realize I work for the CIA, and I could kill you with a box of corn flakes. No I am not fucking hostile, you are simply being ridiculous and stupid here.

    SM: Sir I’ll have to call security.

    MTSA: Hmmm really…$110  huh? Go fuck yourself. I’ll do the work myself.
