Technocracy and Education – Dr. James Tracy on GRTV (GlobalResearchTV)

Is the much lauded technocratic “singularity” nothing more than a potential digital boot stamping on the face of humanity for all time?  The final culling, tagging and bagging of the useless eaters who are set to become the realization of Cloud Atlases Sonmi-451?  Mere $laves in a technocratically reinforced neo-gnostic prison?  These are the currents flowing through my mind as I watch the great vortex of human culture spiraling through precessional time.

I hope you enjoy today’s little jaunt into the minds eye of institutionalized mind fuckery.

For decades, parents have lamented the state of the public education system and the dumbing down of generations of children. In response, organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are investing millions of dollars in programs they say are designed to improve that system. Now, critics like Dr. James Tracy of MemoryGap.org are warning that these so-called cures are just more of the same technocratic manipulation that created the problem in the first place.For decades, parents have lamented the state of the public education system and the dumbing down of generations of children.

The measure of effective teachers project, it sounds nice on the surface but this is a multi-million dollar undertaking that transforms public school classrooms into psychological laboratories (emphasis mine) complete with human test subjects.  And how will the information be used?  Well, the information will  it be used in assisting to overcome resistance to vaccine programs in developing nations?  Will it be used to program video games and so called educational software?  The public is told that Gates want to help teaching in schools, but this in all likelihood is a way to gain access to a particularly vulnerable group of human subjects and generate a wealth of data for future projects in social engineering.

These wealthy individuals also live in a world apart from the rest of the Earth’s population, both literally and figuratively.  Once someone has incredible riches, they often develop the belief that they are a few steps above mere mortals, and actually know what’s best for the human race and the planet we are on.  If the population has been socially conditioned to be stimulus response organisms and behave like animals in such a way as to overlook their self determination (emphasis mine) then it is especially convenient for these “elites” at least a portion of them to regard the masses as nothing more than livestock.

This is what spoke persons for wealthy interests such as Edward Bernays and Walter Lippman asserted back in the 1920’s, that the public is dumb, that the public has an average IQ of about a hundred.  The masses are driven by irrational drives, they are hopeless spectators.  What figures such as Lippman and Bernays don’t say, is that the public has to a large degree been made this way through mass education and mass media.  This is really blaming the victims of social pyschological conditioning.

So the Public is increasingly thought of as superfluous apart from its economic necessity as labor power, again if you consider the ideas of Ray Kurzweil of Nicholas Negroponte or Bill Joy…. The global “elites” have their eyes set years ahead of what we talk and think about with news and popular culture.

Their world is what is presented to us as science fiction.  They have a vision that is much different than what the broader public has been taught to anticipate.

    Public schooling teaches obediance to heirarchy and self-sacrifice for the collective.

    It’s very necessary to maintain submissive, easy-to-tax livestock. We couldn’t live without it. Our sustenance depends on it.

    the second paragraph repeats itself & is the opening sentence of the video
    so it’s nice to see the old rote memorization technique being put into use

    at this point in time, edumacation is an merely an indoctrination tool for governments
    and a way to cull out the “best & brightest” for elite use

    VF: What is your greatest regret?
    Carlin: Having wasted nine perfectly good years in school.

    The best framework to evaluate wealthy tax-deductible donations to charity is “Charity begins at home” and STAYS THERE, frequently to tax-deductible “charities” of their own creation serving their own ends.

    If Silicon Valley tech money (or any other bucks coming from the top 0.001%) wants to fund your organization on any other basis other than a “term sheet” that goes with funding a high-tech startup, it’s time to wonder just where one’s potential investors think the profit is going to come from. And what it’s buying. It might be you.

    What do we know about the experiments funded by the wealthy in public education? That their own children are not subjected to them, these kids go to private academies where the most radical innovations are adequate teacher-pupil ratios, enrichment programs in music and arts, safe and adequate infrastructure, and curricula in which “intelligent design” and “global warming is junk science” play no part whatsoever.

    We also know that the privatization of public education into corporate McSchools is largely connected to building political coalitions with the anti-science Right… where the price of the transition is frequently changing what is taught to pander to their obsolete beliefs. Do we benefit from the more effective teaching of “intelligent design” and “global warming is junk science” even if more effective happens? Do we benefit from a public education resulting in graduates who won’t be allowed into good higher education programs that the managers and professionals of tomorrow are coming out of on the basis that public/private education taught them things that aren’t so?

    What do we know about the money behind the Singularity and Transhuman ideologies? The original small-t transhumanism is an intellectual descendant of Timothy Leary’s SMI2LE life-extension and intelligence increase concepts that Robert Anton Wilson made comprehensible and popularized. Leary went to prison, RAW never sought or got corporate funding to back his ideas.

    What changed as transhumanism evolved into Transhumanism and the Singularity belief systems that turned it into something that looks like a good investment for Silicon Valley tech money generally interested in nothing more radical than increased government support for importing cheap foreign labor and tax cuts?

    Perhaps there are people around here who know the answers.

    The “high-tech billionaires are investing for the good of all mankind” hypothesis is in the “extraordinary claim” category that requires extraordinary proof. (i.e. if you want me to believe claims of UFO visitations, you’d better be able to produce an alien willing to be cross-examined)

    I’d call myself a paleo-futurist in the same sense that Barry Goldwater would be considered a paleo-conservative. I believe that the original vision of Leary and RAW of a future in which technology that will produce much longer, healthier lives and smarter people is still valid. Goldwater bailed out when his movement went off the deep end. The extension of the Leary/RAW vision into political ideology and theology funded by people whose goals are not compatible with those of the people who serve that vision (people practically never support concept of benefits going exclusively to a superwealthy elite they do not personally belong to) is something I have nothing to do with.

    I want to live a longer, healthier, smarter life in a world where freedom for humans and if they happen, human equivalent AIs still exists, This simple agenda would be considered heresy in some places I hang out in, but freethinkers are supposed to be “infidels”.

    Odd that transhumanism and singularity aren’t among the tags above.
