On Graceland with Jennifer Meadows, author and speaker Patrick Wood joins us to discuss his latest book, Technocracy Rising. Technocracy, briefly defined, is government by skilled engineers, scientists and technicians as opposed to politicians. (Sounds a bit like government by Google/Facebook/Amazon.) Wood provides a brief history of technocracy, which first became a popular movement in the 1930s; it gained some prestige from professors at Columbia University along the way; then the Trilateral Commission was founded.
Wood explains how the rise of technocracy leads ultimately to global governance, top-down government control and the removal of social norms and mores. Where have we been, where are we now and where are we headed? Scary stuff!
It is an eye-opening interview.
We also discuss President Obama’s latest jab at Christians who offer, as he puts it, “less-than-loving expressions.” As usual, “less-than-loving” Islamic terrorist acts somehow escape his scrutiny.
And how safe are college “safe zones?” What exactly are college “safe zones?” We try to explain, without too much giggling. Plus, should University of Michigan students have to suffer through Paddington Bear, when they could watch American Sniper instead?
Listen to Jennifer Meadows, Curtice Mang and Charles Johnson III for a lively discussion.
