Between Two Ages: America. has been added to your Basket. Mostly, he examines the ambivalence inherent in America's dual role as disseminator of the technetronic revolution and principal preserver of the international status quo. Brzezinski's optimistic conclusions may comfort a few, but his cavalier treatment of contrary analyses, combined with his past record of undistinguished prognostication, can hardly leave them smug. The opinions are strong and, in general, challenge everyone, from the concerned layman to the practicing scholar.

7 BETWEEN TWO AGES "Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap. There are times when a whole generation is caught in this way between two ages, two modes of life, with the consequence that it loses all power to understand itself and has no standard, no security, no simple acquiescence.

The phrase ‘Technetronic Era' many not have cemented its place in posterity, but we appear to be living in elements of it nonetheless. With this in mind, his concluding line in the book, ‘In the technetronic era, philosophy and politics will be crucial’ serve to confuse the reader further rather than give some closure.

Mostly, he examines the ambivalence inherent in America's dual role as disseminator of the technetronic revolution and principal preserver of the international status quo. Brzezinski's optimistic conclusions may comfort a few, but his cavalier treatment of contrary analyses, combined.

It is almost unbelieveable that this was written I believe in 1969.
Brzenzinski had to be instrumental in telling of the future and making it happen.
He has to be one of the puppet masters of this world.

Brzezinski accurately predicted 21st century events in this book published in 1970. Shocking to think that he influenced the policies of both Carter and Obama which has led to our totalitarian US government here in the 21st century.

It was a very informative read

Perfect! All fine...

In response to both "Schematics" and "Foresaw wrong" reviews: Of course the brilliant author of Between Two Ages did see it correctly, not incorrectly, because he is one of the very Engineers of the NWO, along with his peers at the Council of Foreign Relations and beyond. The very foundations of the NWO are being laid now. Just because it has not happened yet, doesn't mean that it won't. Read Revelation, it tells you the full story about the unfolding of Bzezynski's ideology. It will come to pass, but not one minute before it is supposed to, according to Revelation, which speaks about the 10 "nation" bloques and much more. (And there are exactly 10 waiting in the wings, so to speak.) As you read Revelation there is a surprise ending, which they do not account for, nor do they want it. We live in a most exciting era, which the Ideologists of the Ancient Past would love to have seen!
This document is available online as a free pdf. I just finished it. Brzezinski's ingenious analysis of the world in 1969 is very detailed and insightful. Improved communication, education and transportation created a "gap between awakening mass consciousness and material reality" which created "a state of unrest, uneasiness, anger, anguish and outrage." He spoke of the inability of poorer countries to employ their newly educated class in positions to match their expectations....similar to today's college graduates in US and Europe. He also spoke of how unemployment could be worsened by automation.

He quoted A. Barber: "International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state." This is in evidence today as many governments, including the US, are dominated by banksters and multinational corporations who evade taxes, receive massive welfare from taxpayers, and write laws to benefit themselves via bribery...uh, lobbying. He saw the "emergence of trans-national elites..composed of international businessmen..and public officials..whose interests are more functional and less national.It is likely that before long the social elites of the more advanced countries will be highly internationalist or globalist in spirit and outlook." This sounds a lot like "Richistan" (by Robert Frank). He states that ideology is giving way to a "preoccupation with ecology."

He thought that Christianity brought a belief in "equality before God," that sovereignty brought "equality before the law," and that Marxism "served as a mechanism of human 'progress', even if its practice has been 'monstrous'" and was about "social equality and a concern for analytically dissecting the dynamic thrust of history." In his opinion, many people were unconsciously Christian, nationalist, and Marxist because of widespread belief in these concepts.

His criticisms of the "New Left" regarding their lack of solutions, verbal abuse, violence, and disdain for democratic procedures sounds a lot like today's political scene. He specifically mentions college campuses as vulnerable. One footnote was about a Students for a Democratic Society rally in 1969 with a male speaker pushing "pussy power," which was met with outrage by attendees. Brzezinski notes liberalism's "expression of a relevant, modern, and humane response to the conditions created by industrialism" as well as liberalism's "anti-Catholicism" and disdain for "traditional society" and "conservative instincts of established church and rural..institutions."

He spoke of a "threat that confronts liberal democracy. More directly linked to technology, it involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled and directed society...dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how. Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control." He called it "technological managerialism" with the "emergence of a large dominant party alongside the more narrowly focused doctrinaire groupings on the right and left." Ouch, sounds like the similarity on many economic issues of both Democratic and Republican parties.

He saw that "how to combine social planning with personal freedom is already emerging as the key dilemma of a technetronic (technology and electronic) America, replacing the industrial age's preoccupation with balancing social needs against requirements of free enterprise."

His priorities for America domestically are: 1. "institutional realignment of American democracy to enhance social responsiveness and blur traditional distinctions between governmental and nongovernmental processes", 2 "institutions to cope with unintended consequences of technological-scientific change" and 3. "educational reforms to mitigate the effects of generational and racial conflicts and promote rational humanist values in the emerging new society." Well, we now have lots of tax-free NGOs and "think tanks" that push the agendas of the billionaires who run them. I'm not sure about what institutions are helping with unintended consequences, tho the pharmaceutical "community" has made billions off ADHD and mental health drugs. Public education seems to be fairly segregated by income which coincides frequently but not always with ethnicity.

His foreign policy agenda was 1. "gradual shaping of a community of developed nations realistically express[ing] our emerging global consciousness", 2." disseminating scientific and technological knowledge to reflect a more functional approach to man's problems, emphasizing ecology rather than ideology," 3. [the two preceding] would help to encourage the spread of a more personalized rational humanist world outlook that would gradually replace the institutionalized religious, ideological, and intensely national perspectives that have dominated modern history." The meetings of the developed nations seem to benefit the global elites as they pay less in taxes and social burdens, and shift production to the poorest and most controlled countries in the world.. Also, the elite keep emphasizing climate change instead of pollution, but that would implicate globalization and the oil that moves the cheap goods from Asia across the oceans and developed countries. Science and technology have done a lot to make our lives better in many ways. My Christian religion will not be "gradually replaced" because besides being true, it already is personalized, rational and humanist.
