This is a light hearted, not all that serious thread. I wanna talk technocracy with people, and how basically I dont think any other future is possible than technocrats dominating it, and quite likely exterminating everyone else….
So lets begin with economy, and Bill Gates, Elon Musk, the Zucc, and all these other proto-technocrats are 90%+ of the fortune 500 (the richest companies around). Lets stop talking about economy, its boring, and basically technocrats are already taking over just like the first man with a pointy stick forced other men to farm for him, and just like how the merchants later on had more men with guns then the crown did.
So, lets talk guns. You know, real guns, not small arms, but guns that claim 80% of the casualties in the modern armed conflicts. I am talking artillery. Satellite guided, faster than sound, bunker busting artillery. NSA is almost whole math degrees. Half of pentagon generals have a physics degree. Basically these proto technocrats are the military, and the intelligence, and the guns, and the command….
Lets talk labor, and how technocrats basically build cars in Japan and Germany with 0 human input. Hammer and sickle are basically stone age technology today. Human labor is getting more and more obsolete by the minute, just like Marx predicted, but instead of automated luxury communism for everyone, the technocrats who will have all the power are going to exterminate the population with nukes and viruses and have Earth as a paradise for the few of themselves.
Now lets get to the technocrats themselves. Quite literally every single one of them is a full on rabid Randroid. Every single one of them is holding the world on their shoulders, and you better make sure you acknowledge it or they will get angry. My gf is a chemistry student, and I dont have any friends so I hang out with hers, and basically everyone there was unpopular kid who will now "show everyone" and have his "revenge" with his 6 digits salary.
They see all service sector as glorified vendoring machines. They see the masses and the public as cattle, who preferred staring at sports and celebrities instead of them, and so they are angry at it now and see nothing good in it. Some are even openly racist, and said they went into math/engineering/science because of how white, polite, clean, and free of "feral minorities" it is (the weirdest thing with racists is, asians get a pass), and basically, let me break down all the people I've met there so far (in this country, its a huge building that is being used as uni for all of them, mathematicians, chemists, physicists, etc etc):
Either they are future zillionaire lolberts who are more genius than everyone else and you must agree with them on that
or they are these enlightened, dignified men of high culture and reason, who are better than all the pseudo-scientist (all social science is pseudo science to them, unreliable, shitty, producing 0 results and having 0 uses, relying on statistics, something real science doesnt) quacks, mouth breathing manual laborer grunts, welfare job service sector/glorified vendoring machines, or race realists, who are not racist, you are racist for thinking they are racist, they want to exterminate all 0 nobel prize races that are unneeded in society but they are not racist because they are just race realists and that is just what the facts (that are based on statistics this time, oh lol) tell them, and art also doesnt even exist but discussing, cherishing, enjoying in, watching and indulging in videogames is allowed…
Now of course not all of them are like that, but make no mistake, these psychos do hold all the real power, are smart (in the money/industry/military sense), and they are ABSOLUTELY ready, willing and able to do their thing.
I just wanna talk about them with people who talk about politics. What do you do with them?
