It isn't yet too late to push back against the forces of globalism, but the time is growing short. This book is a must read.
If that sounds outlandish to you, then you need to thoughtfully read this book. Mr Wood does a thorough job of exposing the rarely understood undercurrent that unifies so many modern concepts under what is actually the unpublished banner of skilled rule by privileged elites. For that is what's going on. Certain people really believe their calling is to direct and manage the whole world because the public is too dense to get anything right, and therefore their superior hands must be at the helm. And the crowd can't really know what's going on.
The book is heavy on its justified indictment of the Trilateral Commission because that was the historical locus of Mr Wood's history of research. Certainly, the TLC is not the only hotbed of privileged elitism arrogant enough to want to incrementally seize world power, but focusing on the TLC serves as a very effective window into seeing the normally hidden reality. And the TLC certainly is one of the leading organizational mechanisms serving the prideful and sick cabal of elitism.
One of the many things I like about this book is Wood's suggestion for what to do about it, and that involves acquiring insight regarding one's local governing officials who have so often been lured by the spell of utopian technocracy's empty promises and false visions. Such folk are a dime a dozen. Mr Wood rightfully points out that if informed citizens engage local officials and place the proper pressure on them to stem the tide of a gradual technocratic takeover, we can turn the tables on these hidden criminals. It's been done before. Wood documents how Technocracy raised it ugly head in the 1930's, but informed citizens managed to bat it down.
The elites realized they needed to infect education so that when they tried again, resistance would be minimized. We'll see how that goes, because our American education system certainly has been infected with the various chosen conceptual viruses of the elitist cabal. But interestingly, the Internet has played a role in diminishing the infection of intentional pseudo-education by the elitist cabal. We'll see how it goes all right, but if I recall correctly, prophecy says something about an antichrist ruling over a one-world government. Gee, I wonder what that means?
“The newly reinvented system of governance puts its emphasis on implementing regulations rather than on enforcing laws. If legal obstacles are encountered, the organization is empowered to take whatever pragmatic approach they can devise to skirt the law in favor of the regulation. If empowerment means pragmatism, which it does, then it fits perfectly with the other Technocratic goals that Clinton expressed. The theoretical result of emphasizing regulations over laws is a lawless government and could have been recognized as such in 1993.”
As a young professor at Rutgers, Ph.D. theoretical physics, I took a summer job at Bell Laboratories working on an anti-missile project to build a system to protect us against Soviet attacking missiles. Management constantly changed the direction of the work. I felt this is not the way to perform research. They offered me double what Rutgers was paying, but I declined. The project eventually failed. I can cite several other examples of similar failures. Recently Israel successfully built and deployed an antimissile system. I worked on the initial phases of the project. Israel succeeds because the people remain focused on goals, whereas Americans are focused on doing what the boss wants.
This is the point Wood is making. Technocratic goals are the artificial goals imposed upon people. We need to recognize this, and insist on realistic goals.
Here are some more quotes:
Technocrats believed that they could engineer society by applying the Scientific Method in the same manner as it was applied to physical science.
The New School. By 1921, Veblen was ready to try again and did so with the release of his Engineers and the Price System that took all the blinders off. He plainly stated, If the country’s productive industry were competently organized as a systematic whole, and were then managed by competent technicians with an eye single to maximum production of goods and services instead of, as now, being manhandled by ignorant business men with an eye single to maximum profits; the resulting output of goods and services would doubtless exceed the current output by several hundred percent.
Simply put, they believed that the actions of human beings, both direct and indirect, were the root cause of societal problems and that they were directly related to biology, climate and natural resources. The absence of enlightened scientific management would doom mankind to certain destruction.
Haass’ statement “there is precious little thinking available” underscores a repeatedly used elitist technique. That is, first decide what you want to do, and second, assign a flock of academics to justify your intended actions. This is the crux of academic funding by NGOs such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, Carnegie-Mellon, etc. After the justification process is complete, the same elites that suggested it in the first place allow themselves to be drawn in as if they had no other logical choice but to play along with the “sound thinking” of the experts.
As a scientist, Hubbert tried to explain (or justify) his argument in terms of physics and the law of thermodynamics , which is the study of energy conversion between heat and mechanical work. Entropy is a concept within thermodynamics that represents the amount of energy in a system that is no longer available for doing mechanical work. Entropy thus increases as matter and energy in the system degrade toward the ultimate state of inert uniformity. In layman’s terms, entropy means once you use it, you lose it for good. Furthermore, the end state of entropy is “inert uniformity” where nothing takes place.
To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting. Thus the highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy’s plans; the next best is to prevent the junction of the enemy’s forces; the next in order is to attack the enemy’s army in the field; and the worst policy of all is to besiege walled cities. The rule is, not to besiege walled cities if it can possibly be avoided.
