Thinking About Technocracy

Where to from here?

Three possible outcomes and the rise of technocracy

with one comment

Three possible groupings of outcomes emerge from the general circumstances I wrote on in the last post

  1. The means to handle the complexity and the associated breakdowns are found within the existing governance paradigms and the system continues to expand.  My shorthand for this outcome is “conventional wisdom rules.” 
  2. The system collapses and systematic debilities result.  Shorthand: doomsday.
  3. Arrangements of global governance with clearly established criteria for boundary conditions are established in those areas where threats are high.  Shorthand: technocracy.

  1. There is also the possibility that we could evolve from one system to another. For example, the proto-technate idea we are working in NET. That would allow us to start constructing a network that would form the frame work of a tecnate. As things get worse in the current system we would start moving over to a full technate through expansion of the proto-technate. Thus, evloving from one system to the next.
