by Paul Cudenec Why is it so notoriously difficult to apply an accurate and generally-accepted political label to the society we live in today? Officially, we in the West are still supposedly in a condition of democracy, although as our rights and freedoms rapidly disappear and the power of unelected global networks becomes increasingly blatant, this now seems like a sick joke.
Yes, the fresh air of truth is blowing down their house of cards.
Before convid, there was little acceptance of those who question vaccines and medicines. It grew dramatically because of the chaos inflicted on many.
Finally, people are realizing that everyone has a price, even white coats.
I remember reading how in the late stages of authorian governments, the mask of sanity of the psychopaths is revealed. I see it today, where there is not even an apology for the mistakes made, as if they think they can get away without acknowledging it.
Oh, what a relief. As soon as someone says communist in relation to what we are experiencing, I lose respect for them. I know that they do not know their history or the history of politics. But what words do we use? As you say, none of the old language fits and it all fits just a little bit. Thank you for addressing the problem and giving us a new word to describe "them". The criminocracy...
Criminocracy, I like it. So in other words Technocracy is the assumed villain, like a Scooby Doo baddie, with the real criminal beneath the mask. And they'd get away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids!
They are Goodfellas of our world. Or Sopranos family of psychopaths. No wonder it feels like we live in an open prison with gangsters controlling us.
I wonder whether the owners of the prison know that they are gangsters or they think that they are doing good for the rest of us?
"Technik is a tool of the global ruling class, designed to maintain and increase their power and wealth with no regard at all for the common good."
Remember, it's a worldwide "criminocracy" as the planet is financially interconnected into one huge "gangster cartel." And of course, as the crimes escalate thus becoming more overt a biosecurity technocracy which controls populations via pharmacology and a central bank digital currency tied to digital ID'S are imperative tools for ensuring that all doors remain permanently, but "equitably" 🥺 locked in the ruling elites sustainable open-air Agenda 2030 prison.
Yes ,this label fits perfect.
Thanks Paul, great post. I agree that none of the traditional terms we use accurately describe the system that has been installed. "Criminocracy" seems like a pretty appropriate term to me.
If we look at so-called "elite theory" I think we can view those who wish to lead the Criminocracy as "the parasite class": https://iaindavis.substack.com/p/the-parasite-class
With regard to Technocracy, if we accept the basic idea of a society led by scientists, engineers, economists and other academics, as originally proposed by Technocracy inc, it certainly "misses out the key element of what lies behind that technocratic rule."
However, I suggest there are important aspects of Technocracy that need to be considered in the current context.
Like most ideas with essentially benevolent intentions, such as communitarianism, the Criminocracy has cherry-picked the aspects of Technocracy that suit its purpose. In my view, the central management of all resources common to Technocracy is evidently the mechanism by which the Criminocracy intends to rule. Some call it "global governance."
It is perhaps most notable when we examine alleged "sustainable development" and the resource management it is based upon. I would argue that this is very close to Technocracy.
Here in Spanish:
Very good, Paul, thanks, this is a perceptive display of what's going on. However, as a POST-CAPITALIST (different than an anti-capitalist) I disagree that what we're dealing with is not capitalism. I think a thorough analysis of capitalism shows that those at the top unfailingly engage in the impulse to found monopolies to expand their control. Monopolies can take the form of old-fashioned robber baron control of the railroads, the oil industry, etc., but they also, in this day and age of technocracy, mean control by a ruthless elite via technology, i.e. digital banking, vaccine mandates, social surveillance. I understand your wish for a new term to encompass all the elements threatening us, but those at the top of dominator culture are always criminals, they always have been. Vladimir Putin is a gangster presiding over a corrupt crony capitalism. Chairman Xi in China rose to the top of what boils down to a rarefied capitalist elite brainwashing those millions -- especially in the military -- believing they belong to a communist party. They don't. Communism is a failed system. Karl Marx saw in the cotton mills of London children worked to death at their machines which compelled him to call for the workers to own the means of production. After the 1917 Russian Revolution, the formation of workers' committees running factories lasted for a matter of months before human nature in the form of a ruthless Vladimir Lenin took over.
All governments offer some forms of tyranny from incidental to extreme. There will NEVER be any government free of tyranny and free of anti-citizen policies. It is impossible, otherwise government would lose control and then that government would cease to exist.
