This has already been discussed within the last year (link and another link) for a solution in various parts of the world, but I sure don’t remember hearing about technocracy 10 years ago, however I wasn’t exactly reading the news at that time.
It’s too soon for Greece to have the idealistic technocracy. They have no money to build the infrastructure needed for the smart grid and internet of things. I also think the global energy network aka worldwide smart grid needs to be further developed as well for efficiency to be maximized, but it could be possible without the whole world being on the same steps in development, I don’t know, I’m not an “expert.” (technocracy- a theory or system of society according to which government is controlled by scientists, engineers, and other experts) They need the smart grid, intelligence and data facilities, a way to pay for and possibly manufacture new appliances, a new transportation system, and more to efficiently exert total control over all aspects of life. Of course, not until trans-humanism or some other evolution can I imagine anyone being capable of making apolitical decisions for society. I have some old Technocracy books I need to pull out and read. Anyway, I’ll be keeping my eye out for more technocracy talk.
