We've heard about the rise of technocracy for some time now, but the pace at which it is moving has significantly picked up. Joining us today is the preeminent expert on technocracy, Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), who is Founder and Executive Director of Citizens for Speech and the Editor-in-Chief of technocracy.news. He covers the alarming rise of a scientific dictatorship that has led to an unaccountable massive bureaucracy that unfairly decides your future. It feels like a takeover. And the first thing totalitarians do when they take over is take away your ability to communicate. That's what we're seeing right now. The entire First Amendment is about communication in one form or another. If we lose that, we're done as a country.
A mighty whirlwind of angst is blowing through the country and the result is a distinct division between red and blue areas. Are we headed for a revolution or a civil war? Is secession of certain areas around the corner? Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com), author and free speech activist, joins us to discuss how red and blue areas are stuck in the their own echo chambers, causing the division and rising tension in this country. The totalitarian tactics of the left are alienating people on both sides and it's only a matter of time before the division becomes irreparable.
