Democracy vs Technocracy
the search for a rational solution agreed to by experts and requires solutions to “display both technical efficiency and economic rationality”.
seeks to maximise participation in decision making and argues that a redistribution of power is just as likely to achieve a favourable outcome as anything the experts will come up with; humane and socially just solutions are sought.
Authority vs Argument
In an ideal world evidence would be necessary to persuade us of what is right but in a complex technological society we all depend to some extent on the authority of experts, without questioning their credentials or the soundness of the arguments.
ALL WE KNOW IS THAT ,WHAT KIND OF POLITICIANS( MOSTLY ELECTED IN SO CALLED DEMOCRACY) ELECTED BUT AFTERALL FROM WRITING A SPEECH TO MEDIA CELLS ,POLICY MAKING TO DEALING WITH FOREIGN REPRESENTATIVE ,DEALING ARMED DEAL TO TESTING MISSILES , DISCOVERING DRUGS TO MARS MISSION, SOCIAL ETHICS TO SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY WHO IS DOING THESE JOBS FOR POLITICIANS,NON OTHER THAN “EXPERTISE” ,SO WHENEVER I ASKED A QUESTION TO MYSELF – TO WHOM I ELECT ,,ANS IS “TECHNOCRATS”
PROMISES BY POLITICIANS :
1.JOBS: aggressive privatization policies are need of hour ,bt who will frame it expertise.
2.24hours power & water: how did we get them ,a strong road map by expertise .
and many more…….
for all politicians need expert advice.now lets come to definition of democracy,slightly modifying, we elect them for 5 years after that when they made policies with the help of experts ,,did they consult us ??? no, bills for developement of INDIA in parliament , craved totally by expertise, passed within 5 minutes and in what politicians interfere on the sake of vote bank # FDI ,stucked and then passed with dirty tricks.
so when game is played by expertise and winning tropy ll b awarded to politicians and we do so after, all ,policy paralysis due to lack of decision making on the name of politics of cast ,creed,federal structure.
“Engineers” may never be completely apolitical, but they may be less political than those who went into politics to become politicians. What if technocrats are just politicians without much charisma or without expensive PR? “Mediocrity in politics is not to be despised,” the German writer (and EU-sceptic) Hans Magnus Enzensberger once wrote. “Greatness is not needed.”
A demonstration of this case would be of China. It’s political system is headed by the Politburo, a group of nine people whose significant decisions affect China’s billion population. Out of the nine members, eight have engineering degrees. I would argue that having the skill of an engineer in dealing with macroeconomic problems lead the Chinese government to effectively construct modern infrastructure in a span of less than two decades: the high-speed rail network, the National Trunk Highway System, and the Three Gorges Damn, and a myriad of buildings, bridges, and roads that can act as a catalyst for economic development. Having set out to build modern infrastructure, they also embarked on getting people from the rural provinces to live in the big cities, and as a result millions were lifted out of poverty.
WE HAVE HIGHEST POPULATION OF YOUTHS ALL AROUND THE WORLD AND FOR BECOMING WORLD’S SUPER POWER WE NEED TO ENTER IN THE ERA OF TECHNOCRACY(DEMOCRACY CUM TECHNOCRACY)
