There is a very dark religion at the base of both Technocracy and Transhumanism. That is Scientism. Once understood, the massive censorship at the hands of Big Tech starts to make perfect sense.
Scientism was first proposed by the French philosopher Henri De Saint-Simon (1760-1825). He wrote,
“A scientist, my dear friends, is a man who foresees; it is because science provides the means to predict that it is useful, and the scientists are superior to all other men.”
Saint-Simon’s idea of science was more of a metaphysical proposition that gave way to what we call today “pseudo-science”. It is mostly speculation dressed up as science. In any case, no scientist or engineer has a crystal ball to “foresee” the future nor are they “superior to all other men.”
Nevertheless, Saint-Simon became one of the acknowledged “founding fathers” of both Technocracy and Transhumanism.
In his day, he proposed that the religious leadership should literally be replaced by a priesthood of scientists and engineers, who would interpret the oracle of science in order to make declarations to society on the human actions necessary to lead mankind out of darkness and into Utopia. Thus, science would be elevated to a state of immutable godhood, worshiped by its followers, who in turn are led by its priests.
Does this sound familiar in today’s world? Well, it should.
You would think that this weird religion of Scientism would have evaporated into history after 200 years, but instead, it has magnified and proliferated.
The priests of global warming “science” see into the future to tell us with certain authority that the seas are going to rise and the world will literally burn up. Remedies are offered to head off such a terrible fate, such as scrapping Free Market Economics in favor of Sustainable Development as huckstered by the United Nations.
