Soft Power: the ability of a nation to use cultural coercion, to co-opt, to attract an adversary rather than use hard power. Political values are exploited fully, and as has been seen in the west, the CCP giving candy to babies, the exploitation advances in on younger and younger audiences. TikTok and We Chat, apps created in China use soft power to coerce very young people, slowing changing their values, prohibiting truth about human rights abuses in China, the persecution of the Falun Gong; the terrible human rights abuses in Tibet, Hong Kong, India, Xinjiang Uyghurs in the Mongolian Autonomous Region. Using the lowest common denominator to gain a vast audience and through technology gather mountains of data on their choices, their culture, their likes and dislikes, what motivates them emotionally, how is their love, their views on life and conversations so that might turn them and be used against them. And use against their government. Furthering the views of a socialist collective and the soft cheese glob of a global China Technocratic collective...
...China has been amassing incredible manufacturing power at the cost by the west in a disintegrating manufacturing infrastructure, that was the largest in the world at one time...and now along with all this dollar store junk and excess of dumping their plastic waste re-manufactured into widgets, and gadgets; their back doors into communication tech like cellphones and the purchasing of any intellectual, property or property maker, because they stifle the creative within China.
A slow creep of the socialist model has been going on now some one hundred and twenty years, since its inception with the Socialist Party of America. By Lenin interpreting Karl Marx and Engels manifesto as the first stone laid of the Communist party. It is said that Socialism wishes to control production whereas communism aims to control production and the consumption.
Socialism is the groundwork laid for the follow by communism, and it is moving through the polarity in North America like a wild fire, through the call for revolution; the destruction of the university and the emasculation and corruption of the intelligentsia. The corruption of western leaders doing business with China. The innovators and inventors selling out to the great wealth no holds barred of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).
Dow Inc slashes its workforce by 6%. Zoom shares dropped 6% as Facebook ups its game. Seems COVID-1984 has created some opportunity. Vox Media lays off 6% of its staff, and Amazon is selling a 6% skin bleaching cream, of all things. Why do people bleach their skin? It doesn't make sense. Psychology Today reports that..."About 6% of the U.S. population can be said to have compulsive buying behavior with 80% of compulsive buyers being women.". I told my wife this and she said your a blanking blank liar; your gay, and Irish and my family doesn't like you...and that's fake news, and if you repeat it again, I'll spit in your coffee every time I make it from now on..."
Many might think that my writing on technocracy and especially technocrats, places me in the category as the Luddites. Although I am sympathetic to the originals (1811-1816), and their pleas against the establishment about the use of machines as, "[...] a fraudulent and deceitful manner” to get around standard labour practices."
My case is that technology should be at the absolute service of mankind, and just because we can do a thing, does not ethically mean we should do that thing. Playing god with genetics is something that should be left alone. And the need by so many billionaires to control the planet and the population of the planet, along with the resources and the very natural forces of the planet via technology, science and chemistry is beyond the realm of 'in the service of man'.
Modern technocrats are self-appointed god-like figures who place themselves and all of us who share the planet with them in jeopardy of extinction and collapse. Their technologies are not helping the planet but are in fact destroying it.
***This will be an ongoing series of articles with the lead in the title of 'Technocracy' or 'Technocrat'. I may subtitle long pieces with part numbers, i.e Part 1, part2 etc... This is a very important subject in the understanding of where this world is being directed to, what appears on the surface, or is propagandized as altruism -- the care of everyone as in, "we are all in this together". Nothing could be further from the truth. This is a movement towards a global tyranny by Technocrats consolidating power and guided by an artificial intelligence, and the final death of the individual and the movement towards collectives of brainwashed androids all at the service of a global Technocracy ruled by elite Technocrats. ***
