Introduction
 We are in the midst of the most explosive development in all of human history. Humanity isexperiencing a simultaneously opposing and conflicting geopolitical transition, the likes of which has never before been anticipated or experienced. Historically, the story of humanityhas been the struggle between the free-thinking individual and structures of power controlledby elites that seek to dominate land, resources and people. The greatest threat to elites at anytime – historically and presently – is an awakened, critically thinking and politicallystimulated populace. This threat has manifested itself throughout history, in different placesand at different times. Ideas of freedom, democracy, civil and human rights, liberty andequality have emerged in reaction and opposition to power structures and elite systems of control.The greatest triumphs of the human mind – whether in art, science or thought – have arisenout of and challenged great systems of power and control. The greatest of human misery and

 tragedy has arisen out of the power structures and systems that elites always seek to constructand manage. War, genocide, persecution and human degradation are directly the result of decisions made by those who control the apparatus of power, whether the power manifestsitself as intellectual, ecclesiastical, spiritual, militaristic, or scientific. The most malevolentand ruthless power is that over the free human mind: if one controls how one thinks, theycontrol the individual itself. The greatest human achievements are where individuals havebroken free the shackles that bind the mind and let loose the inherent and undeniable powerthat lies in each and every individual on this small little planet.Currently, our world is at the greatest crossroads our species has ever experienced. We are inthe midst of the first truly global political awakening, in which for the first time in all of human history, all of mankind is politically awakened and stirring; in which whetherinadvertently or intentionally, people are thinking and acting in political terms. Thisawakening is most evident in the developing world, having been made through personalexperience to be acutely aware of the great disparities, disrespect, and domination inherent inglobal power structures. The awakening is spreading increasingly to the west itself, as themajority of the people living in the western developed nations are thrown into poverty anddegradation. The awakening will be forced upon all people all over the world. Nothing, nodevelopment, ever in human history, has posed such a monumental threat to elite powerstructures.This awakening is largely driven by the Technological Revolution, which through technologyand electronics, in particular mass media and the internet, have made it so that people acrossthe world are able to become aware of global issues and gain access to information fromaround the world. The Technological Revolution, thus, has fostered an InformationRevolution which has, in turn, fed the global political awakening.Simultaneously, the Technological Revolution has led to another unique and unprecedenteddevelopment in human history, and one that is diametrically opposed, yet directly related tothe global political awakening. For the first time in human history, free humanity is facedwith the dominating threat of a truly global elite, who have at their hands the technology toimpose a truly global system of control: a global scientific dictatorship. The great danger isthat through the exponential growth in scientific techniques, elites will use these great newpowers to control and dominate all of humanity in such a way that has never before beenexperienced.Through all of human history, tyrants have used coercive force and terror to controlpopulations. With the Technological Revolution, elites increasingly have the ability to controlthe very biology and psychology of the individual to a point where it may not be necessary toimpose a system of terror, but rather where the control is implemented on a much deeper,psychological, subliminal and individual biological manner. While terror can prevent peoplefrom opposing power for a while, the scientific dictatorship can create a personal psycho-social condition in which the individual comes to love his or her own slavery; in which, like amentally inferior pet, they are made to love their leaders and accept their servitude.So we are presented with a situation in which humanity is faced with both the greatest threatand the greatest hope that we have ever collectively experienced in our short human history.This essay, the third part in the series, “The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom,” examines the ideas behind the global scientific dictatorship, and how it maymanifest itself presently and in the future, with a particular focus on the emergence of ‘new

 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
.[1]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
.”[2]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
