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 plight of the urban ghettos in the United States provides an appropriate analogy to the global position of the less developed countries, particularly in Africa and Asia. Their problem is not that of the absence of change. 0 In some cases it is not even that of insufficiently rapid change, because in recent years several underdeveloped countries have attained impressive and sustained rates of growth (South Korea, Taiwan, and Ghana, for example). Rather, their problem arises from an intensifying feeling of relative deprivation of which they are made more acutely aware by the spread of education and communications.

2 Today the functional equivalent of navigation is the thrust into space, which requires a rapid computing capacity beyond the means of the human brain; the equivalent of gunpowder is modern nuclear physics, and that of printing is television and longrange instant communications. The consequence of this new technetronic revolution is the progressive emergence of a society that increasingly differs from the industrial one in a variety of economic, political, and social aspects. The following examples may be briefly cited to summarize some of the contrasts: (1) In an industrial society the mode of production shifts from The Onset of the Technetronic Age { 11 agriculture to industry, with the use of human and animal muscle supplanted by machine operation.

12) and that "science alone sees the publishing of 100,000 journals a year, in more than 60 languages, a figure doubling every 15 years" (Glenn T. Seaborg, "Uneasy World Gains Power over Destiny," The New York Times, January 6, 1969). {24 2. The Ambivalent Disseminator The United States is the principal global disseminator of the technetronic revolution. It is American society that is currently having the greatest impact on all other societies, prompting a far-reaching cumulative transformation in their outlook and mores.
