Ah, I meant "You've said all the things you wanted to say?". I am such a dunderhead.

Oxymandias wrote:BTW I have an idea that I think you should take into consideration, maybe you should write a blog! Not a blog that explains what Technocracy is, but a blog that describes what a Technocracy would be like going into the details and filling in the blanks left out by Technocracy Inc. Here you can let the science fiction writer in you go wild with creativity while creating realistic and applicable ideas and blueprints for a modern Technocracy. Based on your views and ideas, I think that you are a "hard" science fiction writer in which case you would have no problem writing realistic descriptions of a Technocracy. This blog will also not be based around stories but articles that describe what Technocracy is through a milleu-esque writing style. The most well-known example of what I mean is the descriptions of a communist society from the works of Karl Marx except much less aggressive and alot more friendly. Although communism absolutely isn't Technocracy at all in anyway possible what I want you to copy is the writing style, a style of writing that not many people outside of hardcore communists associate with Marx.
Oxymandias wrote:Now you may say that you can't do this because Technocracy Inc left out those blanks in order for Technocracy to be timeless and that filling in those blanks would remove that element from Technocracy. I think you will say this because you are devoted to Technocracy however you are not devoted enough that I cannot potentially convince otherwise.
Oxymandias wrote:The main reason for doing this blog is not to explain what Technocracy is or educate people on Technocracy, but to generate interest in Technocracy. In other words, the point of this blog is to entertain by providing intellectual stimulation through realistic and achievable blueprints for society. Afterward you can provide links for people who want to explore the general idea further or let the people who enjoyed the stimulation to go tell their friends about it. By doing so you greatly expand the audience for Technocracy.
Oxymandias wrote:And this is also beneficial for people who lost interest in Technocracy. A big problem I find with Technocracy is that, after you understand it, there's not that much left to do other than educate others on it which seems like a boring experience. Heck, for me personally I shifted from an obsession with Technocracy to an obsession with reaching Technocracy. This is intellectually stimulating for me because I live in the Middle East which poses lots of problems for the development of Technocracy there. However that's what makes it so fun, because I get to think deeply about how to reach it and consider numerous different ideas. People who live in North America and arguably Euroep don't have these circumstances and therefore are just stuck with the boring and hard mission. The reason why political ideologies get lots of traction is because they are open to expansions of their ideas and open to derivatives of their ideology. However this cannot be done with Technocracy which is completely objective; but Technocracy Inc did leave out lots and lots of ideas on how every single piece could work out and this is where Technocracy can get that same traction.
Oxymandias wrote:Therefore the blog would be overall a great contribution to the Technocratic community.
*Note: I think another good idea is a forum to discuss your articles and Technocracy that is open to everyone is well-overdue
Oxymandias wrote:**Note: Although you will disagree with this, I recommend that you don't mention the word "Technocracy" anywhere in your articles. Don't even mention words like Meritocracy and Noocracy either. These words have bad stigma among Westerners due to their association with elitism. Please use "Post-Scarcity" as the identifier for the society the blog describes or a made-up word like afthocracy (comes from the greek word "afthonía" which means "abundance").

It would be a project requiring some degree of technocratic coordination, however. Users would need to retain the formatting of the original posts as best they could, likewise adding details about time of post to increase ease of conversion.
