New PDF release: Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era

By Zbigniew K. Brzezinski

В своей книге «На рубеже веков: Роль Америки в Технотронной Эре», американский политолог и социолог Збигнев Бжезинский предрекает наступление технотронной эры, завершающей индустриальную эпоху. Для планомерного перехода в технотронную эру, автор предлагает создать союз между промышленно-развитыми капиталистическими странами: США, Западной Европы, Японии. Это предложение повлекло за собой создание Трехсторонней комиссии, поставившей перед собой цель консультировать ведущие мировые державы Америки, Европы и Азии по вопросам мировых проблем. Инициатором создания комиссии был Дэвид Рокфеллер. В 1972 году эта инициатива была поддержана на заседании Билдербергского клуба, а в 1973 году комиссия была организован. Збигнев Бжезинский вошел в комиссию как исполнительный директор, находясь на этом посту с 1973 по 1976 год. В настоящей книге, рассматривая различные проблемы перехода в технотронную эру, Бжезинский делает весьма интересные прогнозы будущего. Национальные государства, по его прогнозам, в течении ближайших десятилетий (книга написана в 1970 году) будут терять политический вес. Также, он прогнозирует возможность усиления контроля и управления над населением при помощи новых технологий в области электроники и биохимии. По мнению Бжезинского технотронная эра создаст транснациональную элиту, озабоченную мировыми проблемами, со своим языком межнационального общения, единой информационной средой, единой культурой.

The science explosion—the most rapidly expanding aspect of ° To provide one simple example, for about twenty years anticommunism provided the grand organizational principle for many Americans. How then fit into that setting events such as the confrontation between Moscow and Peking, and, once one had become accustomed to think of Moscow as more "liberal," between Moscow and Prague? The Onset of the Technetronic Age { 1 23 our entire reality, growing more rapidly than population, industry, and cities—intensifies, rather than reduces, these feelings of insecurity.

In the technetronic age the question is increasingly one of ensuring real participation in decisions that seem too complex and too far removed from the aver- The Onset of the Technetronic Age { 1 13 age citizen. Political alienation becomes a problem. Similarly, the issue of political equality of the sexes gives way to a struggle for the sexual equality of women. In the industrial society woman the operator of machines—ceases to be physically inferior to the male, a consideration of some importance in rural life, and begins to demand her political rights.

More important, 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. " 3 Thus it is an open question whether technology and science will in fact increase the options open to the individual.
