"Technocracy is a social design that is compatible with our resources and technology, and one that provides for the distribution of abundance."

It is about a planned economy and wealth redistribution.

"Highest possible standard of living for ALL citizens in terms of income, housing, health care, education, and leisure. "

"Democratic controls for all non-technical issues and decisions. "

And these democratic decisions, how would they be enforced. What if 40% of the people disagree, and start disobeying? What if just 1% disagree, can they be forced to comply? (with bullets)

"A thoroughly scientific method of control of the technology of the continent. "

We can defeat gravity. The problem is the paperwork involved.
