We must be alert to the danger that public policy could become the captive of a scientific technological elite. The roots of the Scientific Dictatorship can be traced to the works of Plato some 2,000 years ago.
In truth, humanity has been battling the formation of this tyranny for much of known history. Modern forms of scientific power began in the 20th Century and is blossoming in the 21st Century.
The Scientific Dictatorship is composed of unelected individuals that have access to the reigns of power. These individuals have access to undisclosed future technology, classified intelligence, and the ability to steer scientific research that impacts our entire Society.
The Scientific Dictatorship often operates under the cover of darkness, under national security, private contractors, and deep levels of government secrecy.
The scientific rulers will provide one kind of education for ordinary men and women, and another for those who are to become holders of scientific power. Ordinary men and women will be expected to be docile, industrious, punctual, thoughtless, and contented.
