About US

  • Technocracy was founded in 1933 as a membership organization
  • The organization is not religious and not opposed to religion
  • The organization is non political and active members of political parties are not allowed to belong to Technocracy

 

WHAT IS TECHNOCRACY?

A distinction should be made at the outset between Technocracy Inc., the organization, and Technocracy’s Technological Design.

Technocracy Inc. is a research and educational organization formed in 1933 as an outgrowth of the Technical Alliance, a distinguished group of scientists, engineers, economists, and educators formed in late 1918 to study the effects of technology on our social structure. For some 14 years this group gathered data and came up with the following conclusions:

  1. The Earth contains sufficient resources to provide every man, woman and child with an optimum standard of living.
  2. We have the technological know-how, the infrastructure, and the physical machinery to realize this goal.
  3. In the face of advancing technology, human labor is being replaced, thus removing consuming power from a large portion of the population. Therefore, we must seek a sustainable means of distribution of goods and services to all citizens.

Who Are We?

Technocracy Inc. is a non-profit membership organization incorporated under the law of the State of New York in 1919.  It is a Continental Organization.  It is not a political party. We are a non-profit entity and are in the business of educating, informing, and empowering the public through knowledge, information and modeling.

Where are we?

Technocracy Inc. operated on the North American Continent through the structure of its own Continental Headquarters, Regional Divisions, Sections, and organizers as a self-disciplined, self-controlled organization.  It has no affiliations with any other organization, movement or association, but collaborates with many to begin an open accessibility to resources, knowledge, support, production and distribution.

Technocracy principles and views

Technocracy points out that, although the use of the natural resources has been wasteful to the extreme, there remains sufficient resources to accommodate the needs of our population with correct management that considers the needs of the environment and society.

Technocracy finds that the production and distributions of physical wealth on a global scale for the use of all citizens can be accomplished only by an accounting of technology – a holarchial style of governance of efficiency and function; A technate.


Values

The policies and priorities exhibited in our platform are based on several core values.

  • Equitable access to the basic amenities of life: It is one of our core views that all human beings must have access to the basic amenities of life, and thus they must be made available and accessible to all. This includes potable water, adequate food, shelter, education, clothing and basic health care.

  • Quality of life: Improving the quality of life for all human beings is our ultimate goal.

  • Inclusion & accessibility: We maintain that all policies enacted and advocated must be inclusive and accessible to all citizens.

  • Respect: We acknowledge that society is made up of multi-faceted and diverse people, with varying opinions, and although we might disagree at times, we respect all of those opinions.


Our Vision

  • Research and share working models and processes that encourage people to use energy, resources, and creation of waste in the most efficient ways possible.
  • Governmental, social and economic decisions being made based on hard scientific facts with at least the following criteria to be used; little to no harm to the environment, benefit to man and society, sustainable in delivery.

  • An Education system that accommodates multi-faceted and diverse people with varying learning styles and is available to everyone at their levels.

    My personal opinion is that anyone major global movement for unity is not realistic. The idea of having a group of “elite technocrats” or “engineers” of our global population is in essence a fantastic idea. The major problem is humanity, and it’s pre disposition to commit evil towards others. Evil is a term I use to allow you to understand my meaning. By my own definition “Evil equates to anything that is not truth. Meaning Evil = a lie.” The truth is the only thing we need to realistically look at. What is the truth. The truth is people always hurt people. And to have these individuals who believe they maintain the truth by governing a global community is insane. Granted I will take an outside perspective, with non bias. What truth is in a Technocracy. The idea of helping every man, woman, and child on earth have the same opportunities as others on earth. Is this realistic? No. Because who are the Technocrats? And do I as an individual get the exact same opportunities as those who control the same civilization that I live in? Or do these individuals have better food, housing, and financial stability? Of course they do. So realistically this is to create a 2 class system. One of a elite group of individuals who control the rest. That means they will have power over the other. So shroud the truth with a lie. These individuals, and our organizations such as this one don’t want to explain in OPEN and HONEST answers who these people are and what they will be given as “power”. Who decides who the technocrats are? Why are they selected, and not the individual who can barely afford to have adequate heating through the winter? Is it possible for you to actually identify with people who struggle? Certainly, you may attempt to do so, but it is not possible, just like it is not possible for the lay man to identify and understand the individual who has everything. We can’t relate. So if a system is created, it actually needs to be created under equality. That means not for the people it is built for, but for the individual builders themselves also. Is this going to happen? Absolutely not! The individuals who in fact promote and are creating this global movement, are people who control the financial structure of our very society. Now if they own the wealth, and or institutions that seek to lead society in a direction which they deem as best, they do it with a bias view, built on their very own life experience. They can’t relate with the individual on the bottom per say. I can’t myself relate to individuals who are starving, because I myself never have. So in my opinion, if Technocracy is able to effectively work, take ideas from the foundation of America. That even the butcher, or office worker, along with the wealthy, and the poor, should be picked and help build a better society together. If this is wrong please tell me why individuals who already are trying to move an agenda of a global governing figure are only the people on the top? It’s and obvious movement to gain power, and power becomes corrupt. It is tyrannical. My point is that, lets work on local levels, such as the inner city struggles of every major city on the globe. Start from the bottom. Have people on the bottom who have a ability to recognize the struggles they have gone through and listen to them with their solutions to real struggles. And allow a composite of many run a ruling figure head, not elected by advertisements and how much money has been spent to elect. But by experience in life. Technocracy is not possible. Sorry. Nor is global governing. Realistically localized governing is the answer, that all work together to make a better global community. Bottom line. Please feel free to email me more information and to maintain communication about this movement at [email protected]. I would love to have open discussions about solutions to our human problems. Also I am open to changing my opinions, based on facts. The only constant in the universe is change. Thanks for making this non-profit organization. Because it is a movement with solutions to problems.

    Note that my middle name is Scott, given to me in honor of Howard Scott who was, as I recall, equivalent to your President in the 30’s. I am now a recently retired University Professor, and I am curious to know if anyone in your organization has given any thought to updating the Technocracy book used for the self study course in those early years. If not, I might be interested in doing that for the organization. As many of the comments by others indicate, it may be time to reactivate the Technocracy alternative.

    Learned about the philosophy from my study of transhumanism. Are there any books you would recommend to help me better understand the philosophy and movement?

    Listening to Bernie Sanders, who calls himself a socialist, reminded me of my grandfather and what he preached to customers in his barbershop in the 1930’s. He was an outspoken man, firm in his opinions, and displayed the Technocracy symbol in his barbershop. I thought he made sense but as a child in those years, I was to be seen and not heard. The concept has, however, stayed in my mind, and I believe the time as come to implement it, at the same time admitting that the change cannot be done rapidly enough for me to witness. I will begin my 89th year on the 14th of this month. Guess who I will be voting for.

      I’ve never heard of this until today, Im a high school student and I think they should teach this because it makes so much sense. It’s unacceptable that so many people go hungry and without other necessities with all of the resources and genius we have. I think this is something young people could get behind, but no one knows. Just as with many things, I think the key is to get the knowledge out first.
      p.s. Wanda you seem cool 🙂

    Fantastic ideals and vision. To realise this vision, power is a must, which simply cannot be ignored.

    When is this form of government is going to be realised or practiced??? The Earth’s resources which are finite are getting depleted and some of them may have reached their peak point of production……

    You may wait for the population to get behind and support your movement but with the current consumption of some resources like oil, by the time most of the population wants to implement this form of government there would be zero amounts left and it will be too late. Not only that but the wasteful and damaging technology that is used and maintained in our current form of Government is causing climate change so again when most or all people have realised the true nature of capitalism climate effects will be irreversible.

    PLEASE STOP IDLING and lets do something ACTION IS NEEDED right now!!!

    Great ideals! I have been wanting to get behind something like this for a while now and I would love to get involved. I am a computer scientist and work the the field of web development and web applications. Please let me know how I can get involved in any shape or form and I am there! Keep up the good work!
