High Density Population Warehousing – Randy Bright article

OK-SAFE, Inc. – Last week church architect Randy Bright sent us a link to an article about Michael Wolf’s Architecture of Density photography.

Featured are images of massive high rise “neighborhoods” from an article entitled Dizzying Pics of Hong Kong’s Massive High-Rise Neighborhoods. 

This is no way to live.

Is anyone else reminded of computer chips on a circuit board? Both are capable of massive storage.

Danger Lurks When World Populations are Warehoused –

by Randy Bright, from the Tulsa Beacon, Sept. 5, 2013.

A couple of weeks ago I ran across an article entitled Dizzying Pics of Hong Kong’s Massive High Rise Neighborhoods.  It is worth the time to Google the title and see it.

Photographer Michael Wolf has taken a number of photographs of these massive high rises, which from a distance appear colorful and even a bit beautiful.

But one look at the close-ups of these residential beasts reveals something reminiscent of 19th century slums; thousands of identical, tiny living units that reveal the same squalor that you will find anywhere where people are living in highly dense neighborhoods.  Some units have air conditioners, others do not, probably meaning that the building itself is not adequately air conditioned, or maybe not at all.  Some have laundry hanging out of their windows.

I sent this article with its photographs to a colleague with a comment about the inhumanity of forcing people to live in these kinds of conditions, but this is where the more extreme land planners believe that humankind should be warehoused.

Not all planners ascribe to that kind of density, of course, but they do see some degree of density as the answer to mankind’s problems, environmental or otherwise.

Randy Bright’s entire 9/5/13 article will appear online next week at tulsabeacon.com.  For pdf version click on the OK-SAFE website here.

Common Core Exemplifies What’s Wrong with the Republic

Opposition to Common Core continues to grow.  The article below is from Richard Fry, a colleague in Kansas:

Common Core Exemplifies the Problems with the Republic. And is part of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development

The Root Evil

The vast majority of conservative grass roots citizens will agree that the problems the Republic is facing comes from the fact that our “public servants” are no longer following the Constitution or the will of the majority  of citizens within the bounds of the Constitution.

Our public servants are no longer responsive to us nor represent our desires. Instead they serve the interest of special interest groups including the biggest special interest groups, the political parties themselves.

A few years ago I defined this as Representative Disconnect.

They tell us they are representing “our best interests” i.e., they know what is best for us, which bespeaks of a paternalistic government not a representative government.

Business and a Totalitarian Government

The Progressive Globalist wish to co-opt and nationalize business. The Conservative Globalist (GOP) are willing to be controlled  by business in a neo-fascism arrangement sometimes referred to as “crony capitalism”.  The bottom line is that  both desire a system of top down rule rather than bottom up governance. Either system will result in a totalitarian system in which the people are not treated as the sovereigns but another cog in production, a mere resource to be managed and manipulated.

Under this system we have no real right to privacy as our lives need to be managed for the well being of the collective. What we eat, where we live, how we live all needs to be managed to optimized the benefit to the collective. All our activities need to be monitored for compliance. Common Core (CC)  takes this monitoring to a whole new level.[i]

How Common Core Fits Into the Puzzle

Common Core (CC)  is at the very heart of this top down totalitarian system.

Bill Gates buying a new Educational System

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation paid hundreds of millions of dollars to have the common core developed and to promote it. BMGF paid two non-governmental entities (NGOs) , The National Association of Governors (NAG) and  the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO),  to retain an private organization (Achieve, Inc.)  to develop the standards. Rather than the public -private  partnership often touted by the fascist this was purely a private-private partnership. [ii]

Globalization of Education

Although these educational standards are promoted as “state common core standards” there is nothing about them which is from or related to the states except for the fact it is the states these “national” standards  are being foisted upon. In fact these represent a move toward globalization of education. [iii]

Citizen Liberty Pimped Again by State Government

Although the promoters of CC  say that states have voluntarily  signed up for the CC program the reality is they have been coerced and bribed by the federal government which  is of course in bed with this private-private enterprise.  Also in most states the CC has not been foisted upon the people  by their representative legislatures but sneaked in on the people through the state School Boards.   [iv]An example of imposing laws and policies through administrative / executive  action rather representative legislative action. Another hallmark of totalitarianism.

This is how it was done in Kansas. “It is easier to get forgiveness than permission”  is their ploy.

We are Free to Not Make a Choice

This  illusion of voluntariness  was even how it was done at the local level. I attended a seminar where a Kansas Department of Education attorney spoke how the adoption of the CC at the local district level was totally voluntary. Five minutes later she said the state would test based on the CC. When I later asked her if testing to the CC was in essence a “left-handed mandate requiring the local districts to adopt CC” she responded “Yes”.

The United Nations and Global Education

As noted there is a very strong international / global aspect to the CC. Some consider the NGA to be a conduit for the United Nations (U.N.)  into American education. [v] Bill Gates has been called the U.N.’s “sugar daddy” regarding the U.N.’s more recent efforts to affect U.S. and world education systems. [vi]This certainly is not be the first time the UN has tried to meddle in the U.S. education system. [vii]

Bill Gates has stated that  he has spent  $5 billion since 2000 to recreate the education system worldwide. [viii] Gates’ Microsoft  entered in to a written agreement with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on 11/17/2004 to help it promote its global educational effort. [ix]Microsoft is a partner with and sits on the Board of Directors of The Global Partnership for Education. [x]

The African Common Core System

The U.N.’s education program is being promoted in Africa by the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA). ADEA was set up under a differnt name in 1988 by the World Bank (part of the U.N.)[xi]

If you look at the phraseology used by ADEA for core curriculum for  Africa you will find it mirrors that used here in the states.[xii] First is the title of the document,  Common Core Skills for Lifelong Learning and Sustainable Development in Africa .  Certainly there is no pretense about what the primary objective is of this educational curriculum i.e., promoting the U.N.’s  political theory of Sustainable Development.[xiii]

It states:

           ” Building on the theme and outcomes of the ADEA Biennale held in Maputo the 2012 Triennale aims to assist towards educational   transformation by focusing on the core challenge of how to    promote critical knowledge, skills and competencies for sustainable development in Africa in the framework of life long learning.”

(Emphasis added.)

          “This common core needs to be the foundation for all people, young         and old, enabling them to contribute to the promotion of sustainable   development: in terms of preservation of the environment, the    careful use of natural resources, the construction of inclusive      societies and the fostering of peace and solidarity.

          ” The effort made to shift paradigm in education, the need for which had been reiterated in the Maputo Biennale, continues to be          imperative in the area of basic education as the initial        structured           form of acquiring skills and competencies for children,     youth and adults. The acquisition of common core skills by all can   never succeed without corresponding shifts towards adopting           a holistic, integrated and inclusive approach to basic         education, the   move towards a diversified but equitable    basic education system and thus the full recognition of     alternative pathways for education and training; and Sub-Theme 1:       Common core skills for lifelong learning and sustainable           development in Africa 8/12 the emphasis of reform on learning processes and outcomes that are relevant in learners‟  lives and         in the context of sustainable development.”

Conclusion

The reality is that the transformation of the U.S. educational system via the U.N.’s educational theory,  Common Core, in support of its political theory Sustainable Development , is yet one more method being used by the Globalist  to undermine the fundamental principles of this Republic.

 It is treason to the principles of the Republic and destructive of the Liberty of its citizens.

Our elected officials have a duty under their oath to the Constitution and our state officers under the principle of Allegiance and Protection to education the citizenry as to what is going on and to rally them to defeat these attacks on our American way of life. However, once again they are failing in their duty.

Our  main focus must be to build awareness  of the source of our Liberty ,the scope of our servants duty and a healthy respect for what will happen to those who do not respect our Liberty or uphold their oath.

For the sake of liberty,

Fusion Centers and IBM’s SmarterCity – Big Blue Monopoly

OK-SAFE, Inc. – From Part 5 in a series on Fusion Centers by independent researcher Vicky Davis of Channeling Reality.

BIG BLUE CORPORATION

Fusion Centers – Part 5

THINK

IBM_Smart_City

A major step in the march to fascism begins in 1988 with legislation sponsored by then Senator Al Gore to fund the building of a high speed, nationwide “data superhighway” that would allow corporations and researchers at the universities and national laboratories to collaborate in research, product and systems development.  While it might have sounded like a good idea at the time, it was the beginning of the socialization of business costs and the privatization of profits from those public expenditures.   It also set the stage for the corporate takeover of government.   

 

New York Times, December 28, 1988, Sharing the Supercomputers

 

“Officials at the National Science Foundation envision computerized ”collabatories” in which scientists using computer work stations could directly view and control the output of complex machines, such as particle accelerators, wind tunnels, telescopes and nuclear reactors, even though they were thousands of miles from the actual apparatus.”

 

”The infrastructure we will need in the 21st century goes beyond traditional public works projects,” Senator Gore said. ”I envision a national computer network linking academic researchers and industry, using the nation’s vast data banks as the raw material for increasing industrial productivity and creating new products.”

 

”It’s possible that if we simply let a completely self-motivated marketplace develop our data communications infrastructure for the future it will be either inferior to what is being developed in Japan or Europe or owned by companies in Japan and Europe,” said Russell Neuman, a political
scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab.

U.S. and Mexico Sign Border 2020 Plan

Filed under: Sustainable Development — Tags: , , , , , — oksafeinc @ 12:43 am

OK-SAFE, Inc. – NASCO’s (North America’s SuperCorridor Coaltion) latest  newsletter included this article about a bi-national agreement dealing with the 2,000 mile U.S.-Mexico border.

Called Border 2020, this agreement was signed on August 8, 2012 and builds on the EPA’s Border 2012 Plan.

The Border 2020 Mission Statement reads:

“MISSION STATEMENT
As a result of the partnership among U.S. Border Tribes and federal, state and local governments in the United States and Mexico, the mission of the Border 2020 program is to: Protect the environment and public health in the U.S.-Mexico border region, consistent with the principles of sustainable development.”

Border 2020 is funded in part by the BECC (Border Environment Cooperation Commission) and the NADBank, (North American Development Bank) and is another example of the move toward regional governance.  Border 2020 institutionalizes a structure that crosses traditional boundaries – both national and jurisdictional.

The talking points this time emphasize public health and public health risks – translate this into meaning there will the collection and sharing of health data and information across borders.

Quote: “Measure program progress through the development of environmental and public health-based indicators.”

Border 2020 opens the door for more U.S. funded infrastructure in Mexico, environmentally and otherwise,  much like was included the SAFETEA-LU transportation bill a few years back. [Back then, when a constituent asked OK Sen. James Inhofe why we were funding transportation projects up to 100 miles into Mexico, Inhofe refused to answer the question.  Other government officials later answered this question by saying it  is “in our own best interests” to fund infrastructure projects in Mexico.]

Expect that there will be plenty of U.S. funding “in our own best interest” south of the border to fulfill the objectives of the Border 2020 plan.

La Paz Agreement – 1983

“The new accord is the latest working document stemming from the 1983 U.S.-Mexico La Paz Agreement. It builds on the Border 2012 program and encourages meaningful participation from communities and local stakeholders through regional task forces.”

For more on the 1983 La Laz agreement signed by Pres. Ronald Reagan, see the article entitled “La Paz Agreement – Pathway to Disintegration”  by Vicky Davis.

From the EPA’s website:

WASHINGTON –

The U.S. and Mexico signed the Border 2020 U.S.-Mexico Environmental program agreement on Aug. 8 to address high priority environmental and public health problems in the 2,000 mile border region.

The new pact follows the Border 2012 environmental agreement which ends this year, the EPA said in a statement.

The Border 2020 program works to organize stakeholders and communities on both sides to reduce pollution in water, air, and on land, reduce exposure to chemicals from accidental releases or from terrorism, and improve environmental stewardship.

The signing by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa P. Jackson and Mexico’s Secretary for the Environment and Natural Resources Juan Elvira Quesada was witnessed by a number of leaders including the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico E. Anthony Wayne; Vice Chairman of the Tohono O’odham Nation Wavalene Romero; California Secretary for Environmental Protection Matthew Rodriquez, Baja California Governor José Guadalupe Osuna Millán and Tijuana Mayor Carlos Bustamante Anchondo.

“Addressing the environmental issues along the border has long been a priority we share with our colleagues in Mexico, because we know that environmental degradation, pollution, and the diseases they trigger don’t stop at the national boundaries,” said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson.

“Thanks to help from our partners in government, industry, academia and local communities, the Border 2020 agreement will build upon the significant progress already made, and families on both sides of the border will continue to benefit from cleaner, healthier communities for decades to come.”

The new accord is the latest working document stemming from the 1983 U.S.-Mexico La Paz Agreement. It builds on the Border 2012 program and encourages meaningful participation from communities and local stakeholders through regional task forces.

ANALYSIS: Over the next eight years, the Border 2020 Environmental program will work towards significant improvements that will focus on five key areas:

– Reducing air pollution in bi-national air sheds by promoting vehicle inspection programs and road paving, and encouraging anti-idling technologies such as diesel truck electrification at border ports-of-entry.

– Improving access to clean and safe water as well as improving water quality in the bi-national watersheds.

– Promoting materials and waste management, and addressing contaminated sites as well as management practices for addressing electronics, lead acid batteries, tires, and trash.

– Enhancing joint preparedness for environmental and emergency response.

– Enhancing compliance assurance and environmental stewardship.

The new Border 2020 program also strengthens its focus in regional areas where environmental improvements are needed most: establishing realistic and concrete goals; supporting the implementation of projects; considering new fundamental strategies; and encouraging the achievement of more ambitious environmental and public health goals.

Border 2012, which concludes the current year, resulted in numerous achievements, including connecting households to drinking water and wastewater services benefitting more than 8.5 million border residents.

In addition, the program helped remove more than 12 million scrap tires from dump sites border-wide and more than 75.5 metric tons of obsolete pesticides from rural areas in the U.S. state of California and the Mexican states of Sonora, and Tamaulipas.

As the home to over 14 million people and one of the busiest cross-border trade regions in the world, protecting human health and the environment in the border region is essential to ensuring that the U.S. continues to be safe, healthy and economically productive, the EPA said.

The Border 2020 U.S.-Mexico Environmental program will protect the environment and public health for 10 states on both sides of the 2,000-mile border, including 26 U.S. tribes and seven groups of Mexican indigenous people.

The mission of the accord is to “Protect the environment and public health in the U.S.-Mexico border region, consistent with the principles of sustainable development.”

In this program, sustainable development is defined as “conservation-oriented social and economic development that emphasizes the protection and sustainable use of resources while addressing both current and future needs and present and future impacts of human actions,” the EPA said in a fact sheet issued with the EPA signing statement.”

The Northwest Technate – 1946

OK-SAFE, Inc. – One can sometimes find interesting things at estate sales. One such find was the recent discovery of a slim magazine entitled The Northwest Technocrat, NO. 119, Vol. X, which originally sold for 15 cents.

Here was history.  This was actual evidence of the Technocracy movement that swept across the U.S. in the early part of the 20th century, before mysteriously dying off in the late 1940’s or so.  (Maybe it just went into the universities, to percolate there, instead.)

Published in 1946 by Technocracy Inc., and showing an address of 9108 Woodward Ave., Detroit 2, MICH., the cover of this edition features a black and white photo of a fire truck – apparently evidence of the advancements in the design of fire truck technology.

Featuring such articles as Why Not Eat Cake?, Here’s to Health!, Fire!, Science for Sale, and Developing Trends, the magazine included a A Letter to Manchester Boddy. 

This short letter-to-the-editor piece questioned why articles about Technocracy had ceased to appear in Boddy’s Los Angeles paper, The Daily News, after that paper had been such a strong advocate earlier?

Excerpt from a Letter to Manchester Boddy (p. 21):

“Now, Mr. Boddy, since you once publicly proclaimed that Technocracy has the answers and that it was ‘little less than treason’ for the ‘men on the inside’ to withhold information on Technocracy, and since you, yourself, for several months used material on Technocracy as front page stuff, why then is Technocracy no longer mentioned in your paper?  Can you tell me why a scientific balance between production and distribution, as long proposed by Technocracy Inc., is any less correct and necessary today than you openly admitted it was in 1932 and 1933?

In view of the fact that your paper claims to be the outstanding liberal newspaper in Los Angeles, I expect your prompt reply, editorially and otherwise.

Yours very sincerely,

Wm. J. Winchester, 11833-2* (see endnote for explanation of this number)

Los Angeles, Jan. 21, 1946″

Page 23 featured the graphic “Schematic Administration Chart of the American Technate”, the chart detailing the structure for the Administrative control over the “functional sequences” associated with with all the physical equipment of the Continent, (industrial production, consumption and distribution) and the service functions (public health, education and recreation).  This administrative structure was to be overseen by a Continental Control, who reported to a Continental Director.

Schematic Administration Chart of the America Technate

This chart defines the structure for a proposed “new social organization for North America.”  Most people would clearly see this as a set up for tyranny, but not the Technocrats.

These rational “science-based” technocrats believed that if experts – i.e. non-political experts such as themselves – oversaw all the functions of  production and distribution, if they managed to efficiently regulate and control energy usage across the entire North American Continent, if they oversaw the entire social order, matching worker to task and providing the basic necessities of life (and threw in some recreation and entertainment) – there would balance in the world and everyone would be happy, satisfied and content.

Technocrats believed that these rational “science-based” experts would not  abuse their authority or tyrannize the people.

In the real world this is referred to as “fantasy.”

Reading any of the material put forth by Technocracy Inc. one senses foreshawdowing of that political agenda known as sustainable development, aka Agenda 21.

See our prior post entitled What is Technocracy? and click on the Technocracy Study Course text to see evidence of this idea.

It is entirely possible that the social organization as envisioned by these early technocrats laid the groundwork for future sustainable development policies.

At the very least, technocratic ideas helped pave the way for an agenda based on ‘scarcity’, an agenda that is orchestrating a systematic reduction in standards of living here and elsewhere.  Technocracy Inc. made it clear that as the advancements in technology occurred, and the means of production became more streamlined, fewer and fewer people would be needed to do the work.  (People being replaced by machines or by computers).  This means an increase in unemployment virtually everywhere.

A reduced need for workers translates into an overall reduction in the need for people in general.

So how to deal with the excess population? How about promoting the idea that the world is over-populated, and that man has caused global warming?  Eliminate God and God’s plan for people from public discussion, and develop schemes and policies that favor single lifestyles, childless marriage and smaller families.  Make abortion legal and readily available. Plan densely packed communities, and squeeze people into smaller and smaller dwellings, making it harder for them to have a family. Make it more difficult and expensive to own property or have a car.   Promote a culture of death by creating a health care system that can unplug the elderly or infirm because they are no longer productive, cost too much or are using too many resources, etc.

Spreading the Technocratic idea – Units and Members

If the papers had quit publishing information about Technocracy,  how were the ideas and concepts of Technocracy being spread around the country? Apparently by means of magazines such as The Northwest Technocrat and the establishment of chartered Sections of “units and members” all across the country.

This is reminiscent of how so many Rotary Clubs, America Legions and Masonic Lodges were established in small towns across the U.S. in the early 20th century.

Page 21, (22 of the pdf) reads in part, “The basic unit of Technocracy is the chartered Section consisting of a minimum of 25 members and running up to several hundred….There are units and members of Technocracy in almost every state in the U.S. and in all provinces in Canada, and in addition there are members in Alaska, Hawaii, Panama, Puerto Rico and in numerous other places with the Armed Forces.  Members of Technocracy are glad to travel many miles to discuss Technocracy’s Program with any interested people and Continental Headquarters will be please to inform anyone of the location of the nearest Technocracy unit.”

Membership was open to almost anyone in North America – except “Aliens, Asiatics and politicians are not eligible.”  Oh, those rascally politicians.

There is evidence to suggest that there is a rising technocracy of sorts, here in the U.S. and elsewhere.

If so, this means the end of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, meaning property; the end of country, home and hearth. A Technate recognizes no borders or boundaries, and seeks to have global control of all the earth’s natural resources and  people.  It aims to dictate how we people live and where, and how many of us there should be; a technate does not acknowledge God’s plans for His people.

This is tyranny.

________________________________

*ENDNOTE: Most of the articles featured in The Northwest Technocrat were signed by individuals, who followed their names with a six-digit number (five number, hyphen, single number).

In the Technocracy Study course, the Continent was to broken up into Regional Divisions, determined not by country or state boundaries, but by latitude and longitude.  An individual’s Regional Division number was determined by adding up the bisecting points of the southeast corner – i.e. 11833-2.  Think of it as early GEO tagging.

Excerpt from the Technocracy Study Course, (p. 245 of the pdf)

“It is the latter system of subdividing the Continent on the basis of latitude and longitude that we shall adopt. By this system we shall define a Regional Division to be a quadrangle bounded by two successive degrees of longitude and two successive degrees of latitude. The number assigned to each Regional Division will be that of the combined longitude and latitude of the point at the southeast corner of the quadrangle. Thus the Regional Division in which New York City is located is 7340; Cleveland, 8141; St. Louis, 9038; Chicago, 8741; Los Angeles, 11834; Mexico City, 9919; Edmonton, 11353, etc. In this manner all the present political boundaries are dispensed with. The whole area is blocked off into a completely rational and simple system of Regional Divisions the number for each of which not only designates it but also locates it. It is these Regional Divisions that form the connecting link between the present provisional organization of Technocracy and the proposed operating one depicted in the foregoing chart. In the process of starting an organization the membership of a particular unit is much more likely to be united by geographic proximity than as members of any particular functional sequence.”

What is Technocracy?

OK-SAFE, Inc. -What is Technocracy?

Technocracy is the concept of government by technicians, i.e. scientists and engineers, who would oversee and administrate  government and the economy.

The framework for a North American Technate (an institutionalized and operational technocracy) was formulated in the early twentieth century by an influential group called Technocracy Incorporated.  This group eventually published a Technocracy Study Course in the mid-1930’s, noted below.

Excerpt from the Technocracy Study Course: “Technocracy is dealing with social phenomena in the widest sense of the word; this includes not only actions of human beings, but also everything which directly or indirectly affects their actions.  Consequently, the studies of Technocracy embrace practicably the whole field of science and industry.  Biology, climate, natural resources, and industrial equipment all enter into the social picture;” (page ix)

A Technate does not recognize God, individual rights,  representative government,  or national boundaries.  There is no constitution – the blueprint for a Technate is based on functional systems.

A Technate, as described, holds sway over all the resources of its extended territory, from minerals to man; it considers all types and classes of production and methods of distribution, and determines how much energy would and should be consumed in the process.

[NOTE: In Technocracy’s worldview, resources include humans; human beings are considered animals – organisms that derive their food from other organisms.  Subject to the evolution process, and because humans are intimately involved in both production and consumption of energy, technocrats believe that it is appropriate to modify or “enhance” the human organism by scientific means (including genetic), to improve their performance. Read: Designing the Future: NBIC Technologies and Human Performance Enhancement, by James Canton, Ph.D. The activities and schemes detailed in this document could explain why Personhood efforts fail.  Pair this with ‘transhumanism’ and one begins to get the picture.]

Technocrats believe it is their job to balance production and consumption; this involves moving from the current “price-based” system (or whatever it is we currently operate with), to a system based on energy consumption – for instance, a “carbon” based currency system.

Originally, the technocrats envisioned issuing an Energy Certificate to each person at birth.  When that person used up all his pre-determined energy credits, well,  that would be it for him – no more energy allotment.

Goodbye, Bob.

Never Waste a Good Crisis

Technocracy was being promoted during the time a great financial crisis was facing the nation – the great Depression. Technocracy was offered up as a solution to the country’s ills.  The establishment of a Technate (government by technical experts) was seen as way out of what seemed an insurmountable problem. According to Patrick Wood, FDR was offered the position of ‘dictator’ over the proposed Technate, but refused.

We can expect that same pattern of behavior will repeat itself – a great financial crisis, followed by calls for an immediate solution.  Scripture says there is nothing new under the sun and efforts by man to control and dominate the affairs of others continues. The groundwork for a type of Technate has already been laid – all that is needed is the right ‘crisis’ to launch it.

The Course Book

The Technocracy Study Course book, produced by Technocracy Incorporated, was published in New York in 1934, 1935 and 1936, and in Canada in 1937 and 1938.  The digital copy was made available in 2008. (See below for links).

When you read through this Study Course, make special note of Lesson 20, The Nature of Human Animal, and Lesson 21, Technocracy: The Design.

After reading these chapters, a lot of what is happening today is made clearer – including liberty-killing sustainable development plans, schemes to control production and consumption; land and water use restrictions; health care and education reform; the purpose of Smart Meters and the Smart Grid; data collection systems and surveillance technologies; government “modernization” efforts that will lead to the outsourcing of government functions;  open borders and the disregard of constitutional government; and the rising up of a technocratic elite as ‘enterprise administrators’.

Description

A complete digital scan of the Technocracy Study Course. This copy by TNAT The North American Technate. Google Technocracy technate for more associated information.

This is the 1945 edition. The last two chapters of this book contain the Technate design for North America.. the complete appendix.. after the design chapters.. are presented also.

The Technocracy Study Course introduces basic concepts of science, then relates those concepts to the idea of a scientific social design, secular and humanitarian, creative and life enhancing when the Price System abstract value system is not used, but energy accounting is.

The design based on the metrics of energy.. is the viable alternative to the present system referred to as a Price System. The Technate design precludes special interest groups. It is not a political system.

Investigate Technate design for an actual alternative system based on sustainable abundance within the context of our resource base.

Time for a Power Rebellion? Utilities Plan Rate Hikes – ah, those Smart Meters!

OK-SAFE, Inc. –  According to the political agenda known as sustainable development (aka Agenda 21), each person must reduce their energy consumption, or else it’s the end of the world, or something like that.  In other words, due to ‘climate change and human activity’ everyone, especially Americans, has to reduce their standard of living to subsistence level or else…

“Energy efficiency” is the talking point that seems to be everywhere – on the campaign trail, in state legislatures, at city council meetings, and new building codes. Being energy efficient is included in almost all sales pitches – from appliances to homes – and is part of the ‘going green’ agenda.

Folks are encouraged to buy Energy Star this or that, build energy efficient homes, install programmable electronic thermostats, unplug unused items and turn off lights.  Many businesses have been, or are being, remodeled or redesigned, including changing lighting fixtures, HVAC units and thermostats, windows, and even their hours of operation, all in the name of energy efficiency.

Power companies are installing (forceably so in many cases) the so-called Smart Meters on homes and businesses. These surveillance meters are supposedly more efficient than the existing analog meters, and are to reduce the cost of delivering energy to the consumers. The utility companies plan to eventually adopt time-of-day metering, to encourage consumers to change their power usage to off-peak-demand times.

Implied in these efforts is the notion that homeowners and businesses will reap financial benefits from these energy efficiency strategies, and will see reductions in their energy bills.  Everyone will save money, right?  (And the planet, of course.)

Not so fast.  Reducing folks’ energy bills is not really part of the plan; controlling consumption and raising rates is.

Utility rate increases, the natural next step in the Smart Meter/Smart Grid agenda.

It’s a no-win situation for the consumer – no matter what a person or business does to reduce their  energy usage, their energy bill is not going to go down.

Short of being off the grid entirely, or returning to a type of aboriginal living, there is no way to avoid what’s coming.  (Aboriginal living is not so far fetched – some in the “low-carbon initiative” movement are actually advocating this.) It doesn’t matter how much folks reduce their energy consumption, the rate they pay for energy (power) will only go in one direction – UP.

Sounds like it’s time for an Energy Rebellion

Rate increases are already being proposed in smart metered Idaho – and they’re coming soon to a state near you.  What will you do? Live with or do something to try stop it?

See the excellent action plan below, from researcher Vicky Davis.  In the meantime, follow this link to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission webpage dealing with Smart Meters.  Start reading here.

Opportunity Knocks… Let’s Answer It 

Note:  This was written for the people of Idaho, but everybody pays an electric bill so the suggestions offered here apply to people in all states.  Find your electric utility regulator’s website, get familiar with it, find out how to comment.  Watch for the next press release on a rate increase request and then spring into action. 

Yesterday, Idaho Power issued a press release that was published in the Idaho Statesman proposing an 8.5 percent increase in our monthly power bills “citing increased operating costs”.

Idaho Power pushes for rate increase
April 28, 2012

As part of its annual proposed rate adjustment, the state’s largest utility is proposing an overall 7.1 percent rate hike for residential customers. That means the average monthly bill would increase $6, from $83 to $89 per month.

The time when people are most receptive to new information, is when something happens to them directly and personally.  A significant increase in electric utility rates hits everybody – directly and personally.  In these hard economic times, an increase in the electric bill like this one provides us with an opportunity to present that new information.  It doesn’t matter that this opportunity begins with electric utility rates.  It’s the opportunity to talk to people about a subject that is guaranteed to interest them and to introduce them to the subject of Agenda 21 at the same time.  Energy restriction and control is at the heart of Agenda 21 – and the increase in electric rates demonstrates how.  The incentives are misaligned.  Your “reward” for conservation and efficiency is that you will pay more for less – and you have no choice because electric service is essential for all in an advanced country.   To be blunt about it, they’ve set up a racket.

Here is an article about electric rate decoupling – and don’t be fooled by the time limitations set for the decoupling.  They just extend the date when it expires.

Utility Decoupling:  Giving Utilities Incentives to Promote Energy Efficiency

The following image is of a paragraph in the 2006 National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency, Page (Adobe):

Idaho Public Utilities Commission Order 30267, Case No. IPC-E-04-15  (initial decoupling order)

What we found out in Idaho is that it wasn’t Idaho Power that was pushing Smart Grid, Smart Meters and “Demand Side Management”, it was the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (IPUC).  The IPUC is not acting in the interests of the people of Idaho, they are implementing the policies of NARUC – and NARUC is responding to the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) – and NAESB is working with NIST and the Department of Energy (DOE).

Here is the suggestion for all Tea Party Groups, 9-12, property rights groups, – all groups fighting Agenda 21.

Rally your members for an all out campaign to reach your neighbors.   Prepare a flyer with the information below and hand it out everywhere – grocery stores, shopping malls, anywhere people are congregated.   The front side should be about the electricity rate increase – the back side about Agenda 21.   It would be great if you could organize public meetings to tell people about Agenda 21 and advertise those meetings on the flyer.

Ask the people to send a comment about the rate increase to the Idaho Public Utilities Commission.  The comment can be emailed or a letter can be written.  The comment must include the Case Number and their name and address.

Also, include the name and address of their state legislators – representatives and senators and ask them to send a copy of their comment and/or a letter to them about the out of control costs for essential services.

IPUC Case information on the rate increase:

Case Number:  IPC-E-12-07

Here is a sample of a citizen comment on another matter, but it shows the information that should be included:

This is a golden opportunity – but it is time limited.

UPDATE – BILL PULLED! SCR 27 (not 67) by Ellis – Promotes “Sustainable practices” Statewide

1/26/12 UPDATE to this Post:

The phone calls and emails worked – Senator Ellis has pulled SCR 27.  This bill will not be heard this session.  What is still unknown is who provided him with the language in the first place and why.

Having said that, this language could appear someplace else so it will have to be watched.  In the meantime, emails and calls need to go out to Senator Ellis thanking him for pulling this bill.

  • Email: ellis@oksenate.gov
  • Phone: 405-521-5614

Now back to the other bills filed this session.  To find the Text of Legislation filed for 2012 go to www.oklegislature.gov, hover over Legislation, then click Text of Measures. (Be sure to check both Senate and House bills.)

One of this year’s most contentious issues will be Health Care (Title 63 bills) and Insurance (Title 36 bills).

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

In doing a preliminary run-through of the Senate bills filed for the 2012 session in Oklahoma, we found Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 67 27 filed by Senator Jerry Ellis.

For those unfamiliar with the subject of sustainable development, here it is in a nutshell:

Sustainable development is defined as “Development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” From the Brundtland Report in 1987).  It is a political agenda documented in a report called Agenda 21, and is the policy adopted by the U.S. in 1992  – it is designed to regulate and limit every single human activity.

This includes the removal of land from future development and use; the adoption of cookie-cutter comprehensive development plans that limit options and densify towns and cities; adoption of comprehensive water use plans that severely limit the rights of property owner’s;  adopting policies and technology that quantify and measure energy use and consumption with the intent of eventually curtailing its use (i.e. Smart Grid and Smart Meters);  “walkable communities” that limit the ability of one to easily use and drive a care; and more.

(For more information click here. Click  here for OK-SAFE’s Brief Overview of Sustainable Development. Check out Freedom Advocates website for great research on what’s wrong with Agenda 21 and sustainable development policies.)

Ellis seems like a nice enough person; not sure who provided him with the language in  SCR 67, or who persuaded him to run it, but it is pure Agenda 21-sustainable development-type language.

Folks might want to email and/or call Senator Ellis and politely ask him to pull this bill.

SCR 67 27 language below:

STATE OF OKLAHOMA

2nd Session of the 53rd Legislature (2012)

SENATE CONCURRENT

RESOLUTION 27                      By: Ellis

AS INTRODUCED

A Concurrent Resolution resolving to promote sustainable practices in developing the natural resources of this state; and directing distribution.

WHEREAS, We, the Oklahoma Legislature, commit ourselves to building a humane, equitable and caring society, cognizant of the need for human dignity for all; and

WHEREAS, the future belongs to our children, and accordingly we must ensure that through our actions they will inherit a world free of the indignity and indecency occasioned by poverty, environmental degradation and patterns of unsustainable development; and

WHEREAS, we are determined to ensure that Oklahoma’s rich diversity, which is our collective strength, will be used for constructive partnerships for change and for the achievement of the common goal of sustainable development; and

WHEREAS, we reaffirm our pledge to place particular focus on, and give priority attention to, the fight against conditions in Oklahoma that pose severe threats to the health and welfare of our people, which include chronic hunger, malnutrition, illicit drug problems, organized crime, corruption, natural disasters, environmental pollution, drought, terrorism, intolerance and incitement to racial, ethnic, religious and other hatreds, endemic communicable and chronic diseases; and

WHEREAS, we believe that in pursuit of their legitimate activities, the private sector has a duty to contribute to the evolution of equitable and sustainable communities and societies, recognizing there is a need for private sector corporations to enforce corporate accountability, which should take place within a transparent and stable regulatory environment; and

WHEREAS, Oklahoma is particularly blessed with natural resources, diverse in its agricultural resources, mineral wealth, timber resources, and water resources; and

WHEREAS, agriculture is a fundamental part of Oklahoma society and we believe that its promotion and sustainable development is an integral part of our children’s future; and

WHEREAS, oil, gas, mineral and timber development is likewise a part of Oklahoma’s proud heritage, and we believe that its promotion and sustainable development should be a proud and productive part of our children’s future; and

WHEREAS, the waters of Oklahoma provide significant and important services to our citizens by increasing and maintaining the value of real estate, helping to regulating our climate, providing water-related recreation, such as fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing and photography, swimming and boating and provide for a healthy environment in which we all live and work; and

WHEREAS, we recognize that as Oklahoma grows to provide a brighter future for our children, conflicts will escalate as demands for resources, including water, productive agricultural land, and mineral resources increase.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE OF THE 2ND SESSION OF THE 53RD OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CONCURRING THEREIN:

THAT to overcome these conflicts and ensure a sustainable partnership of our government, people, and the businesses and industries located in our state, we resolve to promote sustainable practices in the development of our state’s natural resources.

THAT a copy of this resolution be distributed to the Governor, the Secretary of Environment, the Secretary of Agriculture, the Secretary of Commerce and Tourism, the Secretary of Energy and the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
