Technocracy and Mediocracy

Technocracy and Mediocracy   

A turn of the wheel to truly representative government is the holy grail of politicians and anarchists - but reliance on computerised systems creates a technocracy, and corruption is an integral component in most human power systems. If the technological bugs could be ironed out and the watchers watched, then there is still the problem of media control of the mindscape - TV will usually determine the outcome, after all.


Ever has it been thus – the modern extensions or oratory and rhetoric blind people to the realities behind easy the platitudes of ‘leaders’ – also a term for headlines. The daily news overflows with examples of poll-driven government for the rich, by the rich, yet most people fail to respond with anything but support for the system which maintains them at a balance between comfort (or luxury) and desperation. 

Rich lawyers run the world – but for whom? I'm reminded of the scene in Catch 22 where the young American says to the old Italian, "Better to die on your feet than live on your knees!" and the Italian says, "No, no, you've got it all wrong, it's better to live on your feet than die on your knees!"
