Zbigniew Brezinski and the Technetronic Age
Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “worldwide village” aspirations were a defining aspect of his worldview. It is all a part of the New World Order.
Perhaps the time is past for the comprehensive “grand” vision. In some ways, it was a necessary substitute for ignorance, a compensation in breadth for the lack of depth in man’s understanding of his world. But even if this is so, the result of more knowledge maybe greater ignorance — or, at least, the feeling of ignorance — about where we are and where we are heading, and particularly where we should head, than was true when in fact we knew less but thought we knew more.
Zbigniew Brezinski was a prominent political scientist and foreign policy expert. He was crucial in shaping the United States’ foreign policy during the Cold War. His advocacy for détente and his efforts to improve relations with the Soviet Union. His diplomatic efforts with other Communist countries had a lasting impact on American foreign policy.
Brezinski’s book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Age is a seminal but strange work in political science. Written by Zbigniew Brezinski, it provides a comprehensive analysis of the changes in the world. It highlights the role of the United States in the “technetronic” age.
In 1973, Brezinski co-founded the non-governmental organization known as the Trilateral Commission. It fosters cooperation and understanding among the United States, Europe, and Japan. Its focus is on economic and political stability in these regions.
Zbigniew Brezinski Short Biography
Zbigniew Brezinski (1928-2017) was a Polish-American political scientist and foreign policy expert. He served as the National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter (1924-) from 1977 to 1981. He was a significant architect of the Carter administration’s efforts to improve relations with the Soviet Union. He had diplomatic relations with other Communist countries.
Brezinski was born in Warsaw, Poland, and immigrated to the United States in the early 1950s. Brzezinski began his academic career at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. There, he earned his undergraduate and graduated with a degree in political science. Brzezinski later taught at Columbia University in New York City. There, he served as the director of the Institute on Communist Affairs. Brezinski became a prominent expert on Soviet and Eastern European politics.
In 1953, Brezinski received a Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University. He went on to teach at Columbia University, where he became a leading expert on Soviet and Eastern European affairs. Brezinski advocated détente (relaxation of tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union). He believed achieving peace through diplomatic means rather than military force was possible.
In the 1960s, Brzezinski began advising the Democratic Party on foreign policy issues. He became a leading voice in the party on matters related to the Cold War and the Soviet Union.
In 1976, Jimmy Carter, the Democratic candidate for the presidential election, was looking for a foreign policy advisor. He appointed Brzezinski as the National Security Advisor. Brzezinski played a crucial role in shaping the administration’s foreign policy. The focus included diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union and the Middle East. Brzezinski also helped to establish the U.S. Department of Education and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
In 1977, President Carter appointed Brezinski as his National Security Advisor. Brzezinski became one of the most influential members of the administration. He was a crucial player in the negotiations that led to the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT II) signing. That treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union aimed to limit the number of nuclear weapons held by both countries. He also played a vital role in the Camp David Accords, bringing peace between Egypt and Israel.
On November 9, 1979, Brzezinski got a 3:00 am phone call with a startling message. The Soviets had launched 250 nuclear weapons at the United States. Minutes later, Brzezinski received another call. The early-warning system showed 2,000 missiles heading toward the United States. As Brzezinski prepared to phone President Jimmy Carter to plan a full-scale response, he received a third call. It was a false alarm because of an early warning training tape. It had somehow transferred to the early warning network. That triggered an all-too-real scramble.
Brezinski’s foreign policy views were not without controversy. He criticized the Soviet Union and advocated a hardline stance against the country. He also supported the United States’ involvement in the Soviet-Afghan War, which began in 1979. That led to criticism that the United States was indirectly supporting Islamic fundamentalists. The blowback would later become a significant concern with the rise of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda in the region.
Brezinski’s diplomacy normalized relations with the People’s Republic of China. That severed ties with the non-communist Republic of China in Taiwan. Brzezinski advocated for human rights promotion of democracy. His diplomatic work with the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1981. Brzezinski was a vocal critic of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and played a vital role in the decision to support the Afghan mujahideen.
After leaving government service, Brzezinski became a prominent voice in foreign policy. He wrote several books:
Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Age (see below)
Brzezinski warned about the rise of China and the potential for conflict in the Asia-Pacific region. He advocated for dialogue and cooperation among the United States, Europe, and Japan. He also continued to comment on international affairs frequently and was a regular guest on news programs and talk shows.
Between Two Ages
The book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Age is Brezinski’s most influential work. Published in 1970, scholars say it is a groundbreaking work in political science. It is an essential book on the Cold War and the role of the United States. For the plain text of the book, click here.
The book has two parts. The book’s first part analyzes the state of the world and the changes that are taking place. Brezinski argues that the world is in the midst of a significant transformation, which he calls the “technetronic age.” This age includes the rapid growth of technology and the world’s increasing interconnectedness. Brezinski argues that this transformation leads to a new type of society. It is more complex, interconnected, and dependent on technology.
In the book’s second part, Brezinski turns to the role of the United States in the “technetronic age.” He argues that the United States has the power to shape the world’s future. Brezinski believed the United States must use its power and influence to promote peace and stability worldwide. He also believes that the United States should take a leadership role in addressing the challenges of the technetronic age. The issues include poverty, inequality, and environmental degradation.
One of the book’s key themes is the importance of détente or the relaxation of tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union. Brezinski argues that détente is essential for peace and stability in the world. He urged the United States to work to improve relations with the Soviet Union and other Communist countries. He also stressed the importance of arms control agreements. He successfully worked to implement the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT II) to reduce the risk of nuclear war.
The book was influential at its publication and remains relevant today. Brezinski’s analysis of the changes in the world and the role of the United States is still studied and discussed. His ideas on détente, arms control, and the role of technology in shaping the world have had a lasting impact.
Brzezinski argued that a coordinated policy among developed nations was necessary. That policy countered global instability by increasing economic inequality. Out of this thesis, Brzezinski co-founded the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller (1915-2017). (See Trilateral Commission below).
The following text from the book accurately predicted the current fusion of government, corporations, media, education, medicine, and education (Corporatocracy).
The tendency toward depersonalization of economic power is stimulated in the next stage by the appearance of a highly complex interdependence between governmental institutions (including the military), scientific establishments, and industrial organizations. As economic power becomes inseparably linked with political power, it becomes more invisible, and the sense of individual futility increases.
In line with globalist aspirations, in Between Ages, Brzezinski writes:
In the technetronic society the trend seems to be toward aggregating the individual support of millions of unorganized citizens, who are easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities, and effectively exploiting the latest communication techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason. Reliance on television — and hence the tendency to replace language with imagery, which is international rather than national, and to include war coverage or scenes of hunger in places as distant as, for example, India — creates a somewhat more cosmopolitan, though highly impressionistic, involvement in global affairs.
To make the global village a reality in tune with the then-upcoming Covid plandemic:
…. there is already widespread concern about the possibility of biological and chemical tampering with what has until now been considered the immutable essence of man. Human conduct, some argue, can be predetermined and subjected to deliberate control. Man is increasingly acquiring the capacity to determine the sex of his children, to affect through drugs the extent of their intelligence, and to modify and control their personalities.
As a harbinger of things we see today, Brzezinski quotes a testimony by Dr. D. Krech, Government Research Subcommittee of the Senate Government Operations Committee, as reported by The New York Times, April 3, 1968:
“I foresee the time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behaviour and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.”
The Trilateral Commission is a group of prominent political and business leaders and academics. Brzezinski co-founded the Commission with David Rockefeller and other luminaries in 1973. Brzezinski served as director from 1973 to 1976. Members hail from the United States, Western Europe, and Japan. In 1974, Brzezinski selected Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter as a member.
The Commission is a non-governmental organization. The stated purpose: foster cooperation and understanding among the United States, Europe, and Japan. It claims to promote economic and political stability in these regions.
The Trilateral Commission comprises approximately 400 elitist members from these three regions. Members provide expertise and leadership in various fields. That includes business, politics, academia, and the media. The Commission meets to discuss and analyze issues of common concern. They develop policy recommendations for governments and other organizations to consider.
One of the areas of focus for the Commission is economic cooperation. It has a long-standing concern with the growth and stability of the global economy. The Commission has proposed several proposals. The recommendations promote trade, investment, and financial stability among its member countries. For example, the Commission has advocated creating a common currency among the United States, Europe, and Japan. That would establish a more integrated system of financial regulation. What could go wrong with that?
Another area of focus for the Commission is security and foreign policy. The Commission has concerns about China’s rise and potential conflict in the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, it has put forward several proposals to promote dialogue and cooperation among the United States, Europe, and Japan.
Critics of the Commission argue that the organization is secretive and undemocratic. Its members are part of the world’s largest corporations and banks. The organization promotes a narrow, elite-centric view of the world. Its policies are often detrimental to ordinary citizens’ interests and nations’ sovereignty. They goose-step in line with other globalist institutions. The notable tenacles include the Council on Foreign Relations, Bildibergers, Club of Rome, Aspen Institute, United Nations, and World Economic Forum.
The term “technetronic age” was first used by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era. The term refers to the increasing integration of technology and electronics into all aspects of society. The technetronic era describes the rise of new technologies. That includes computers, the internet, and automation. These technologies have transformed how we live, work, and communicate. According to Brzezinski, the technetronic era has four main trends that are unquestionably foundational to the satanic Transhuman age of today:
Rise of technology
Increasing integration of technology and society
The transformation of political power
The emergence of a global civilization
Brzezinski argued that these trends led to a new form of society in which technology and electronics dominate. He believed that new communication and information exchange forms the technetronic era. Elements now include the internet, thus creating a “global village.” He also thought that the age would see the rise of automation and artificial intelligence. That would impact the workforce and the economy.
Brzezinski argued that the technetronic era would lead to the erosion of traditional forms of power and authority. That is the erosion of the nation-state, and the emergence of a new type of power, based on knowledge and information. He also predicted that the era would lead to global civilization. People from different cultures and backgrounds would come together and interact in new ways.
One of the most notable aspects of his worldview was a belief in the need for a global perspective and the development of a worldwide civilization. Brzezinski’s globalist aspirations also manifested in his work as a foreign policy advisor. As National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter, Brzezinski promoted global “democracy.” He believed the world was entering a new historical period. He predicted the integration of technology and electronics into all aspects of society. That would lead to a “global village” and the emergence of a global civilization.
Brzezinski’ advocated for the United States to take a more active role in promoting global stability. As such, we have become the world’s police force, thus draining resources to protect our southern border.
Despite criticisms, scholars consider Zbigniew Brzezinski one of the most influential National Security Advisors. His contributions include the following:
Foreign policy role shaping the United States’ response to the Cold War
Efforts to improve relations between the United States and the Soviet Union
The book Between Ages, with its emphasis on détente, arms control, and the role of technology, arguably shaped the political landscape
Brzezinski was not considered to be a neoconservative. While some of his views on foreign policy aligned with those of the neoconservatives, he was not considered a part of the movement and had significant differences. Brzezinski was considered a liberal, particularly in terms of his views on foreign policy. He strongly advocated for the United States to engage with the international community. It is worth noting that political ideologies can be complex and multifaceted, and individuals may not fit neatly into a single label or category. Thus, globalists come from all aspects of the political and social sphere.
The Trilateral Commission is a brainchild of Brezinski. It is secretive and undemocratic, promoting a narrow view of the world and its policies detrimental to the general public’s interests. The Commission is one of many globalist-inclined elite organizations. Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “global village” aspirations were a defining aspect of his worldview. It is all a part of the New World Order.
Brzezinski passed away at the age of 89 in May 2017. He was a leading foreign policy expert and a key figure in the administration of President Jimmy Carter. His work and legacy continue to this day. 📕
