“For the first of two interviews on the subject of Technocracy and the Smart Grid, we are again joined by theologian Dr. Martin Erdmann, former Professor of Philosophy at North Greenville University and Director of the Verax Institute in Greer, South Carolina. In this interview, Dr. Erdmann introduces the technocratic movement of 1930s’ America under Howard Scott and M. King Hubbert, and traces its intellectual roots to the positivistic, anti-supernaturalist and utopian ideas of the 18th/19th-Century French philosophers Henri Saint-Simon and Auguste Comte. But, explains Dr. Erdmann, Technocracy is far from dead; bewitched by its ideals of a fair, efficient and ecological economy, and now emancipated by the wonders of smart technology, the utopian dreamers of our day are gradually resurrecting Technocracy, and quietly ushering in an Orwellian nightmare of global, totalitarian control.”

“We are joined again by theologian Dr. Martin Erdmann, former Professor of Philosophy at North Greenville University and Director of the Verax Institute in Greer, South Carolina. In this second of two interviews on the subject of Technocracy and the Smart Grid, Dr. Erdmann introduces the Smart Grid, an energy distribution, allocation, monitoring and control infrastructure which is being quietly constructed across the globe, and which threatens to be the long-awaited tool of Technocracy in its utopian dream to forge a perfect world order. But the crucial step will be that we uncritically welcome the Smart Meter into our homes. Replete with enticements, and apparently benign, the WiFi-enabled Smart Meter will eventually communicate with every appliance in the home, always making the most rational and energy-efficient choices based on computer algorithms programmed according to political policies aimed at steadily reducing the power consumption of the monitored populations. But in so doing, it will usher in a world in which citizen privacy, consumer control, and ultimately freedom will be things of the past.”

“Technocracy is really a term which describes a form of government, in which experts in technology would be in control of all decision-making. So it’s basically scientists, engineers, technologists, bankers. Anyone who has some expert knowledge in his particular field would be qualified to exercise political control over a country.
“Technocracy is not a democracy. It is anything but. It is a totalitarian system. It has very close connections to utopian socialism.”
“It all depends on the installation of ‘smart’ meters. Because ‘smart’ meters are the most important component to set up this so-called ‘smart’ grid… and this is what is happening today.”
“Once the smart grid is in place, the next step will be the political imposition of technocracy, because then the technology is available to make technocracy ‘work.'”
“It is not people who monitor the use of your energy. It will be just computer algorithms. It is more frightening if you look at it from that angle. Because ultimately, there is no recourse. You cannot just go to the power company and complain – or to the political authorities – because they can say, ‘Well, it is set up by a specific computer system, and the computers make the best choices based on the data they are given in a particular area, and thus we just need to rely on these computer systems.’ Ultimately there will be no recourse.”
“The other idea is, these programs can be changed, just by political authorities giving some mandates down to the power companies. And you don’t have any say how these programs are being changed. So if the use of electricity in a particular area is too high, these programs can be changed in such a way so that the energy consumption [availability] is being lowered.”

So what is in store for those of us who have refused the smart meter (and now have to pay extortion fees to our utility to not be spied upon, and to ensure our family’s health & safety?).
The utilities are trying to con people in accepting the contract of having to pay the extortion. Know that thousands of people are not paying them. You (we all) have the ability to create contract — we’ve just forgotten this and become convinced of another reality. Stay tuned to our site & newsletter…
FPL is “enrolling” us if we do not accept the terms they are extorting for having an opt-out (“non-standard” as opposed to standard meter ( smart, advanced) .The opt-out still has the smps and the MESH system wireless reporting, but they lie about it.. DO NOT EVER sign the “contract: form” they are asking you to sign. Just pay the $ 95.00 fee and $13/month for now, until we can revolt en mass legally ! (AND we must !) I am unable to sleep because I FEEL EVERY ILLEGALLY IMPOSED VIBRATION THROUGH THE “OPT-OUT ” METER THAT I FELT WHEN FPL (STOLE) THE PERFECTLY GOOD METER FPL INSTALLED IN APRIL 2011 ( REQUIRING A LIVE BODY TO READ THE METER) TO CO-ORDIATE WITH OUR NEWLY INSTALLED SOLAR SYSTEM, FOR WHICH WE SIGNED A CONTRACT, WHICH AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED IS STILL APPLICABLE TO THAT METER WHICH THEY STOLE, TRESPASSED SECRETLY IN SPITE OF WARNING TO LEAVE THE PROPERTY, AND REPLACED BY STEALTH-THEFT IN MAY 2013 WITH A SMART METER. WE HAD SENT CERTIFIED REFUSAL IN NOVEMBER OF 2012, WHICH THEY OFFICIALLY AFFIRMED RECEIPT OF, PROMISING TO BE PUT “ON HOLD” TWICE (WEASEL WORDS !)
AFTER MY HUBBY THREATENED TO” RIP THE DAMN THING OFF THE WALL”, THEY INSTALLED THIS “OPT-OUT” METER (MAY 2013) WHICH STILL HAS MOST OF THE HEALTH DESTROYING DIRTY ELECTRICITY INFECTING OUR HOUSE WIRING AND COPPER WATER LINES, WHICH RADIATE WITH THE WIRELESS MESSAGING, AND I FEEL 24/7 DOWN MY SPINE TO MY TOES, PREVENTING SLEEP. NONE OF THIS WAS TRUE WITH THE APRIL 2011 METER FPL INSTALLED AND THEN STOLE TO REPLACE WITH THE SMART METER, AND THEN THEN WITH THE “NON-STANDARD METER” AND WE ARE NOW STUCK WITH HEART PALPITATIONS, PRESSURE HEADACHES, ETC. WHICH STILL PREVAIL, AND MY DOCTOR “FIRED ME” BECAUSE HE AS MUCH AS SAID I WAS CRAZY, “OPINIONATED”):
THERE WAS NO CONNECTION TO THE HEALTH PROBLEMS WE NEVER HAD BEFORE THE SMART METER WAS INSTALLED” ! )
WE HAVE TO SUE THE GOVERNMENTS WORLDWIDE FOR THE SOFT KILL THEY ARE COMMITTING WITH THE GMO’S, THE CHEMTRAILS, AND THE SMART METER “GRID” SYSTEM (& NSA) TO POISON US WITH ELECTROMAGNETIC FREQUENCIES. IT IS PART OF THE BANKSTER CREATED “TECHNOCRACY” AND (“TRANSHUMANISM”) THEY NOW EMBRACE TO DEPOPULATE ALL THE PLANET’S LIVING CREATURES AND PLANTS, APPARENTLY !
