Conversation with James Corbett that makes the most of James’ vast and erudite knowledge on deep global politics, collective brainwashing, long-term social engineering, the technocracy movement, and what he calls “turnkey totalitarianism.” Looks at the deeper psychological and emotional mechanisms being exploited, coopted and undermined by decades of conscious sociopolitical manipulations.

  1. James Corbett gives a superb rendition of Propaganda, (the Insidious Factor), by around the 7 minute mark. The words he uses truly communicate how insidious propaganda can be.

    • Climate Change

      Recent “exclusive?!” REUTERS NEWS propaganda – June 25, 2019
      Exclusive: Investors with $34 trillion demand urgent climate change action

      LONDON (Reuters) – Investors managing more than $34 trillion in assets, nearly half the world’s invested capital, are demanding urgent action from governments on climate change, piling pressure on leaders of the world’s 20 biggest economies meeting this week.

      In an open letter to the “governments of the world” seen by Reuters, groups representing 477 investors stressed “the urgency of decisive action” on climate change to achieve the Paris Agreement target…

      …The letter comes ahead of a June 28-29 G20 summit in Japan and as United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urges countries to back more ambitious climate goals.

      “There is an ambition gap… This ambition gap is of great concern to investors and needs to be addressed, with urgency,” a statement from the investors accompanying the letter said.

      …“It is vital for our long-term planning and asset allocation decisions that governments work closely with investors to incorporate Paris-aligned climate scenarios into their policy frameworks and energy transition pathways,” the statement said.

      The investor letter was signed by the chief executives of the seven founding partners of The Investor Agenda, including the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change and the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment.

      Large investors signing the statement included Legal & General Investment Management and the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), although the world’s two biggest asset managers, BlackRock and Vanguard, did not….

        I just can’t buy the validity of this Reuters Poll…
        Americans demand climate action (as long as it doesn’t cost much): Reuters poll

    • I hear ya.
      I enjoyed it also, but it took a bit of an adjustment for this old Texas codger to get used to the accent and the “younger tints of color on the backdrop”.

      • Yeah I had to give it a little time to get used to Jasun’s style and tempo, but I like it. Nice to have some one more soft spoken rather than a loud blow hard. As a rather shy person, I can relate to soft spoken passion.

  2. Wonderful interview James.

    I have a suggestion for interviewers whom question the idea of technocracy as if it is some new idea or if they give the impression that it is just speculation and not necessarily the current agenda being rolled out.

    I would point them to Parag Khanna’s book “Technocracy in America: Rise of the Info-State”. Mr. Khanna is of course a card carrying globalist since he studied at the London School of Economics and frequently appears to that propaganda machine that rubs shoulders with the nearby Bilderbergers – the World Economic Forum.

    This book corroborates the claim that the idea of technocracy is alive and well and being promoted amongst elite circles still to this day.

    To furter underscore this idea…look at this description that summarizes the book…and I quote:

    “American democracy just isn’t good enough anymore. A costly election has done more to divide American society than unite it, while trust in government–and democracy itself–is plummeting. But there are better systems out there, and America would be wise to learn from them. In this provocative manifesto, globalization scholar Parag Khanna tours cutting-edge nations from Switzerland to Singapore to reveal the inner workings that allow them that lead the way in managing the volatility of a fast-changing world while delivering superior welfare and prosperity for their citizens. 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.”

    • Good post, Ethan. Thanks.
