Carbon Currency: A New Beginning for Technocracy by Patrick Wood

Stumbled on this article by Pat Woods this morning because a law firm in Cali, who's been poking around my sites for the last few days, looked up ACL members this am. The ACL doesn't have a members list, we're not exactly an organization, so I was curious what comes up in a search for that. What drew me to this article initially was somebody referenced us in their comment. Wood does not write about communitarianism, he's like many other American writers who have a position and an established reputation in the alternative information community. We've been on friendly terms ever since his son Josh booted Harry Hackfield and the Wizard of Oz crew from their social network. I still do not know why some people so easily grasp the importance of the final synthesis, while others, like Pat can so easily disregard it. It's not an accident that Alex Jones mentioned communitarianism in his newest "movie"and if Jones takes up the role of exposing it, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if he makes the same claim about it that Clinton made in Toronto.

Here Patrick does a great job of explaining the history of the carbon currency "idea" and provides numerous source links for further study. Thanks Pat!

Carbon Currency: A New Beginning for Technocracy?
By Patrick Wood, Editor
January 26, 2010

Critics who think that the U.S. dollar will be replaced by some new global currency are perhaps thinking too small.

On the world horizon looms a new global currency that could replace all paper currencies and the economic system upon which they are based.

The new currency, simply called Carbon Currency, is designed to support a revolutionary new economic system based on energy (production, and consumption), instead of price. Our current price-based economic system and its related currencies that have supported capitalism, socialism, fascism and communism, is being herded to the slaughterhouse in order to make way for a new carbon-based world.

It is plainly evident that the world is laboring under a dying system of price-based economics as evidenced by the rapid decline of paper currencies. The era of fiat (irredeemable paper currency) was introduced in 1971 when President Richard Nixon decoupled the U.S. dollar from gold. Because the dollar-turned-fiat was the world’s primary reserve asset, all other currencies eventually followed suit, leaving us today with a global sea of paper that is increasingly undesired, unstable, unusable.

The deathly economic state of today’s world is a direct reflection of the sum of its sick and dying currencies, but this could soon change.

Forces are already at work to position a new Carbon Currency as the ultimate solution to global calls for poverty reduction, population control, environmental control, global warming, energy allocation and blanket distribution of economic wealth.

Unfortunately for individual people living in this new system, it will also require authoritarian and centralized control over all aspects of life, from cradle to grave.

What is Carbon Currency and how does it work? In a nutshell, Carbon Currency will be based on the regular allocation of available energy to the people of the world. If not used within a period of time, the Currency will expire (like monthly minutes on your cell phone plan) so that the same people can receive a new allocation based on new energy production quotas for the next period.

Because the energy supply chain is already dominated by the global elite, setting energy production quotas will limit the amount of Carbon Currency in circulation at any one time. It will also naturally limit manufacturing, food production and people movement.

Local currencies could remain in play for a time, but they would eventually wither and be fully replaced by the Carbon Currency, much the same way that the Euro displaced individual European currencies over a period of time.

Sounds very modern in concept, doesn’t it? In fact, these ideas date back to the 1930’s when hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens were embracing a new political ideology called Technocracy and the promise it held for a better life. Even now-classic literature was heavily influenced by Technocracy: George Orwell’s 1984, H.G. Well’s The Shape of Things to ComeBrave New World. and Huxley’s “scientific dictatorship” in

This paper investigates the rebirth of Technocracy and its potential to recast the New World Order into something truly “new” and also totally unexpected by the vast majority of modern critics.
