"The technocracy movement is a social and ideological movement which arose in the early 20th century. Technocracy was popular in the United States and Canada for a brief period in the early 1930s, before it was overshadowed by other proposals for dealing with the crisis of the Great Depression. The technocracy movement proposed replacing politicians and businesspeople with scientists and engineers who had the technical expertise to manage the economy."
I don't believe that this movement ever died out.
“Before the beginning there was only one consciousness, that of The Eternal One whose nature cannot be expressed in words. It was The One Sole Spirit, The Self Generator which cannot diminish. The Unknown,Unknowable One brooding solitary in profound pregnant silence…..and we in our simplicity call it God.” The Kolbrin Bible THE BOOK OF CREATION Chapter 1
