Patrick M. Wood, founder of Citizens For Free Speech, joins Jason Hartman for an in-depth discussion on technocracy. Who are some examples of current technocrats, and how are they influencing the economy? What is the link between Agenda 21 and technocracy?
Wood and Hartman discuss the shift away from high-rise living due to COVID-19, something that challenges some expectations of experts claiming that the majority of the world would prefer living in cities. Wood explains the Trilateral Commission and the connection between it and several positions of power.
