Technocracy’s intention is to show a design–a plan that has been available for decades to control our technology instead of technology controlling us. By clinging to an outdated economic structure that often directs technology’s uses strictly for profit we are missing the full value of technology for the betterment of society and the environment.
Technocracy is about making scientifically proven decisions. We are about making balanced and responsible choices for ALL of society and the environment.
Technocracy began 1919 in New York city in an organization known as the Technical Alliance of North America. This group included highly regarded men and women in science, education, architecture, mathematics and medicine. In 1933, after it was obvious that technology was going to replace manual labor in many areas Technocracy was formed to provide information on how to create a plan, a blueprint of sorts to have an economy based on the best utilization of the technology available to make decisions for the good of society and the environment. We have that plan and it is viable.
What is Functional Decision Making? It is using the currently available scientifically proven information, relating it to the decision to be made, using strict criterion that factors in society and the environment and then coming to a consensus that at this point in time, this is the best decision we can make.
Profit is not a criteria in Functional Decision Making.
