eugenics’ as a system of mass control.Free humanity faces the most monumental decision we have ever been presented with: do wefeed and fuel the global political awakening into a true human psycho-social revolution of themind, creating a new global political economy which empowers and liberates all of humanity;or... do we fall silently into a ‘brave new world’ of a global scientific oppression, the likes of which have never before been experienced, and whose dominance would never be moredifficult to challenge and overcome?We can either find a true freedom, or descend into a deep despotism. We are not powerlessbefore this great ideational beast. We have, at our very fingertips the ability to use technologyto our benefit and to re-shape the world so that it benefits the people of the world and notsimply the powerful. It must be freedom for all or freedom for none.
What is the ‘Scientific Dictatorship’?
In 1932, Aldous Huxley wrote his dystopian novel, “Brave New World,” in which he lookedat the emergence of the scientific dictatorships of the future. In his 1958 essay, “Brave NewWorld Revisited,” Huxley examined how far the world had come in that short period sincehis book was published, and where the world was heading. Huxley wrote that:
In politics the equivalent of a fully developed scientific theory orphilosophical system is a totalitarian dictatorship
. In economics, theequivalent of a beautifully composed work of art is the smoothly runningfactory in which
the workers are perfectly adjusted to the machines
. TheWill to Order can make tyrants out of those who merely aspire to clear up amess.
The beauty of tidiness is used as a justification for despotism
.Huxley explained that, “The future dictator’s subjects will be painlessly regimented by acorps of highly trained social engineers,” and he quotes one “advocate of this new science” assaying that, “The challenge of social engineering in our time is like the challenge of technicalengineering fifty years ago. If the first half of the twentieth century was the era of technicalengineers, the second half may well be the era of social engineers.” Thus, proclaims Huxley,“
The twenty-first century, I suppose, will be the era of World Controllers, the scientificcaste system and Brave New World
.”In 1952, Bertrand Russell, a British philosopher, historian, mathematician, and social criticwrote the book, “The Impact of Science on Society,” in which he warned and examined howscience, and the technological revolution, was changing and would come to change society.In his book, Russell explained that:I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is masspsychology. Mass psychology is, scientifically speaking, not a very advancedstudy... This study is immensely useful to practical men, whether they wishto become rich or to acquire the government. It is, of course, as a science,founded upon individual psychology, but hitherto it has employed rule-of-thumb methods which were based upon a kind of intuitive common sense.
Itsimportance has been enormously increased by the growth of modernmethods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called‘education’.
Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the Press, the
