This connection is not just tangential. It tells us something about Musk's roots and his vision... when he is preparing "to build the Martian Technocracy" he is not using that word in a careless way. He knows exactly what it means.
Imagine being the real-life Tony Stark: A billionaire, jetsetting, tech whiz playboy who's developing the multi-billion dollar rockets that will not only privatize space travel but help get humanity to Mars. And imagine you announce the whole thing on Twitter with a big, splashy "Occupy Mars" picture of the red planet...
Only to be told that you posted a picture of the moon by mistake. A red-hued "blood" moon, to be sure, but the moon nonetheless. How embarrassing.
Luckily, the cool billionaire tech guru who's pioneering electric cars and underground hyperloops and rescuing Thai children from caves (and selling Not A Flamethrowers to raise some money on the side) took it exactly how you'd expect he would. A couple of laugh-crying emojis and a hearty: "Moon too!"
What class. But then again, would you expect anything less from the man that Werner von Braun predicted would be the future leader of Mars? Of course not.
What many may have missed in the back-and-forth about the moon/Mars gaffe, however is another tweet he made about the scheme. Granted, this one is not quite so exciting to the general reader: "Accelerating Starship development to build the Martian Technocracy."
The "Martian Technocracy?" What's this? More whimsy from everybody's favorite mega-rich tech geek?
Sadly, no. In fact, what Musk's supporters might not know is that he has a very real family connection to the actual, historical Technocracy, Inc. movement/political party. which might help explain Musk7s outlook, his rise to prominence, and some of his wackier (not to mention creepier) ideas on the eventual merging of humans and machines.
For the three or four people out there who have never heard of Elon Musk before, the bullet points:
Born in Pretoria, South Africa in 1971 to Errol and Maye Musk (née Hald...
We are NOT fine folks. They’re white washing everything, trying their best to keep the imminent implosion from happening. Things aren’t fine when everyone’s screaming that we need lower interest rates and they’re at 2% now.
A nation was born, unlike any other, and we celebrate that on July 4th. But this July 4th and next July 4th, we are closer to seeing this nation die, than it’s ever been.
You can call the eurozone dumpster fire many things, but you can't call it boring. It seems that this battle between the populists and the banksters is just beginning to heat up.
It's hard to talk about the imminent "kinetic military action" with Iran without sounding like a broken record. Many have been warning about it since the days of Bush and the original neocon crew.
So here we are, with the battle lines of the 21st century forming exactly as the CFR globalist insiders "predicted" nearly three decades ago.
When someone is spreading rumors and easily debunkable lies about you, you speak up. You set the record straight. You fight back. You do something . . . don't you?
Trump is going to pressure these social media companies with extreme regulations, unless they stop their practice of knocking down his supporters...
Solutions can take any number of forms, depending on the community and its need. It might involve joining (or even creating) a community organization that fosters interaction and helps neighbors in times of need.
Hardline Trump regime demands and objectives assure no resolution of differences through talks in Norway or anywhere else — what Russia understands but didn’t say.
Do you think it’s possible that thousands of people have had their product designs stolen and then sold to the highest bidder across the globe? It’s not only possible it happens. More than you’d imagine.
...the scary part is the Government role. When Government gets to say what you can or can not talk about, we have LOST the most important freedom of all.
If a new "catastrsophic and catalyzing event" happened tomorrow... would the public blindly support the government in a headlong rush to war or would they question what they were being told?
Folks this is nothing but pushing for war with Iran. Israel and the Saud’s want the US to come in and mop up Iran.
I’m not trying to spread fear porn here friends. Look at Venezuela, they’re enduring a coup. The US is enduring a coup attempt of its own.
