WHAT IS MISSING?

Daniel Webster, 1837
“I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy.”

The Declaration stated;
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable RIGHTS, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

In 1859 Charles Dickens wrote the famous historical novel titled: A TALE OF TWO CITIES.
Here is how Charles Dickens describes the chaos, confusion and societal darkness during the French Revolution:
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.”

Richard Gardner wrote a seminal paper published in FOREIGN AFFAIRS in 1974.
He is an academic with membership in the TRILATERAL COMMISSION which has as its ultimate stated purpose THE CREATION OF A NEW INTERNATIONAL ORDER.
Gardner titled his article: “THE HARD ROAD TO WORLD ORDER”
“In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion,’ but and end-run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”

Patrick Wood in his book “Technocracy” writes:
“If today’s technocrats are meticulously working toward a scientific dictatorship and applying a specific strategy to get there, wouldn’t you think that they have a specific list of criteria that must be met before “game over” can be called?
With the rapid advances in Smart City technology, mass surveillance, the Internet of Things, 5G rollout and now massive censorship of all opposing positions, it seems that “game over” may have actually already been called; if not, it is certainly very close.
China is now widely acknowledged (in academic circles, at least) as having transitioned to a full-blown Technocracy. It has the outward trappings of Communism left over from the last century, but it has now superseded Marxism and Communism, and has promoted it to other nations around the world.
The China transformation was aptly predicted by Trilateral Commission co-founder Brzezinski in his 1970 book “Between Two Ages; America’s Role in the Technetronic Era. He maintained that Marxism, Communism and Socialism were merely the necessary stepping-stones to reach his “Technetronic Era” but were not themselves the intended endgame.”

“A book was released by Dr. Parag Khanna in 2015 titled, TECHNOCRACY IN AMERICA, issues a blunt call to implement a direct Technocracy in the U.S. He calls for the abolishment of the Senate, the replacement of the Executive office by a committee of co-Presidents and the surrender of the Constitution to the Supreme Court for modernization.”
The new telecom standard, 5G, is stampeding into cities around the world with such blinding speed that there is hardly time to mount a protest. Leaders of the 5G revolution like AT&T and Verizon, have bluntly and openly stated that 5G is not about SmartPhones but rather about enabling the Internet of Things and all other Smart City technologies.
It should be clear that the march toward Technocracy is neither Democratic or Republican, liberal or conservative, Marxist or Capitalist. Since 1973, every Administration has promoted it and followers of every ideology have served as its “useful idiots”.

Proverbs 2:6
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

What is wisdom?
Wisdom is the ability to discern before you make a judgment based upon knowledge.

What is knowledge?
Biblical knowledge is not morally and ethically neutral. It’s either “good” or “evil”. We get knowledge through Biblical examples, truths and commands that God wants us to know, believe, and apply to our lives.

Did you know that the first Technocracy Study Course was offered in 1934?
In this course you find details on how they plan to implement Technocracy into our world:
“Technocracy is dealing with social phenomena in the widest sense of the word; this includes not only actions of human beings, but also everything which directly or indirectly affects their actions. Consequently, the studies of Technocracy embrace practically the whole field of science and industry. Biology, climate, natural resources, and industrial equipment all enter into the social picture.”

In 1938, their official magazine THE TECHNOCRAT, offered the same core belief with some additional clarification:
“Technocracy is the science of social engineering, the scientific operation of the entire social mechanism to produce and distribute good and services to the entire population.”

When the Technocracy Study Course was first offered in 1934 they included:
”Science is, in a dynamic sense, essentially a method of prediction. It has been defined as being the method of the determination of the most probable.”

The Father of all scientism and Technocracy is French Social Reformer Henri de Saint-Simon (1760-1825). In 1803 he wrote:
“A scientist, my dear friends, is a man who foresees; it is because science provides the means to predict that it is useful, and the scientists are superior to all other men.”

Patrick Wood in his book writes:
“This is the same siren call of Scientism that persists to this very day, and we see these same attitudes in all the modern aspects of Technocracy, such a Sustainable Development, Agenda 21, 2030 Agenda, Biodiversity, Global Warming, alternative energy, etc. In every case, the “science” is presented as “settled” with the implicit assumption that nobody has a reason to dispute either the science or the remedial actions that are specified to fix some perceived problem.
To a hammer, everything looks like a nail. To a Technocrat scientist or engineer, everything looks like a problem begging for a scientific or engineering solution.”

Reuters just reported that:
“The White House has been reaching out to social media companies including Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet Inc’s Google about clamping down on COVID misinformation and getting their help to stop it from going viral, a senior administration official said.
“Disinformation that causes vaccine hesitancy is going to be a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms” a source with direct knowledge about the cooperation told Reuters.
The White House acknowledged working with tech giants like Facebook and Google and the issue.
“We are talking to them….so they understand the importance of misinformation and disinformation and how they can get rid of it quickly. It’s not censorship, they exclaim. It’s a private company and can do whatever it wants with its property.
Except now, that ‘private’ entity is working directly for the government as the Biden administration is not even trying to hide the relationship.”

In 2018 Caitlin Johnstone was warning of the slippery slope that Big Tech and its liberal minions were embarking on as the corporate-sponsored cancel-culture began.
“In a corporatist system of government, wherein there is no meaningful separation between corporate power and state power, corporate censorship is state censorship.”
Then she was labeled a conspiracy theorist.

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” George Orwell.

A MATTER OF THE HEART

Chuck Swindoll in his Study Bible:
I have found that searching questions are one of the most helpful ways to deal with my heart when it grows cold and distant or hard and calloused. Here are a few searching questions that I ask myself on occasion:
Has worship become merely formal and proper for me?
Has prayer become a series of meaningless words, just a matter of moving filthy lips, like Isaiah says?
Does God seem strangely distant and out of touch?
Have I forgotten that He really sees me and knows exactly where I am, what I’m doing, and why?
Am I getting too preoccupied with externals?
Is human opinion too important to me?
Do I allow my will to invalidate the authority of God’s Word in my life?
Are there wicked things being tolerated, even cultivated, in the deep chasms of my being?
Have I stayed in this condition so long that I’ve become blind to theses things?
I urge you to ask yourself searching questions like these. If you do it honestly, you will find that God is willing to come into the deepest places of your heart and transform you. Chuck Swindoll
