A tectonic-level battle could soon take place over the fundamental structure of America, and hardly anyone sees it coming. Nevertheless, I am making a bold prediction for 2017.
With the Democrat party seemingly in total upheaval after the 2016 Presidential election, it boggles the mind at how fast political fortunes can change these days. Democrats, liberals, leftist and progressives have arguably realized that the current system of things political has become impenetrable to them, and that they will not move forward by gaming the existing political machinery any longer.
Instead, watch for a new mantra: “Since Democracy* is irrefutably broken, let’s just throw it under the bus and start afresh with… Technocracy.” In other words, if you can’t get rid of Trump, then get rid of the office altogether.
(The efforts and methods of the Trilateral Commission since its founding in 1973 to resurrect historic Technocracy have been thoroughly documented in my book, Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation.)

- Huffington Post 3/1/16 – Five Reasons ‘Representative Democracy is Failing Us
- New Yorker 11/7/16 – The Case Against Democracy
Second, President Obama took only eight years to systematically deconstruct America using radical Marxist tactics. It was a thoroughly effective game plan, and it has decidedly broken the existing political/economic system in the process. In fact, it was so broken that Hillary Clinton, the mistress of political gamesmanship, could not even win the 2016 Presidential election! This ‘failure’ happened as Trilateral Commission members surrounded Obama for all eight years of his tenure as President, and as Clinton and her campaign was carefully managed by Trilateral bigwig John Podesta.
After 40 years of careful observation, I have concluded that the globalist strategy is always played like a chess game. They think several moves ahead of us, and they use every means possible to cover their tracks and to mislead about their future intentions. Antony Sutton and I broke their code in the 1970s, and I attest that nothing has changed today.
Thus, the next move on this grand chessboard will be to fuel the flames of discontents who call for (demand) trashing democracy altogether. Simultaneously, Technocracy will be presented as the perfect, if not only, solution to replace it.
So, it is no coincidence that global scholar Parag Khanna’s new book, Technocracy in America: Rise of the Info-State, will be released on Tuesday, January 10, 2017, just 10 days prior to Inauguration Day for President-elect Trump. Nor is it a coincidence that Khanna has already gained a major platform of progressive media to push his radical ideas:
- TIME 12/2/16 – 5 Radical Solutions to Fix Our Busted Government
- Washington Post 1/4/17 – The U.S. might be better off without Congress — and a president
- Geopolitical Monitor 1/4/17 – Interview: Dr. Parag Khanna on How to Fix the US Political System
- Huffington Post 1/9/17 – Sick Of American Democracy? The U.S. Could Learn A Lot From These Countries
American democracy just isn’t good enough anymore… The ideal form of government for the complex 21st century is what Khanna calls a ‘direct technocracy,’ one led by experts but perpetually consulting the people through a combination of democracy and data. From a seven-member presidency and a restructured cabinet to replacing the Senate with an Assembly of Governors, Technocracy in America is full of sensible proposals that have been proven to work in the world’s most successful societies. Americans have a choice for whom they elect president, but they should not wait any longer to redesign their political system following Khanna’s pragmatic vision.Some readers will immediately reject my prediction as being ridiculous, stating that Technocracy will never gain any foothold in America. Such readers would do well to review history; in the 1930s and 40s, there were over 500,000 card-carrying, dues-paying members of Technocracy, Inc. and it was wildly popular with millions of other Americans. If Americans were dumb enough to believe it then, they can be dumb enough to believe it today.
You can test my prediction in coming weeks and months in two ways. First, watch for calls to end democracy or radically restructure government. Second, watch for increased media coverage of Khanna’s call for a ‘direct technocracy’ in America. Some of the high points of Khanna’s book include,
- Abolishing the electoral college
- Turning the presidency into an Executive Committee with multiple members
- Abolishing the Senate, replacing it with executive Technocrats from each state
- Transferring custody of the Constitution from the Senate to the Supreme Court
- Filling civil service positions with apolitical Technocrats
- Removing politicians from any influence on operational issues regarding society
* Yes, America was founded as a Constitutional Republic, but progressives and elitists do not recognize this form of government. Therefore, they will never refer to America as anything other than a Democracy.
