    Social Technocracy, sometimes shortened to SocTech, is an economically centre-left to left-wing, socially and culturally progressive and civically syncretic ideology that supports limited private ownership of the means of production in combination with majority worker-owned industry (being a mid-point between Socdem.png social democracy and Soc.png socialism) achieved through reformism, business regulations and welfare programs, in addition to radical technological and Prog.png social progressivism and the implementation of a Technocracy.png technocratic one-party state governed by specialists and the scientific elite, which functions alongside a system of direct democracy used to inform policy decisions. Additionally, Social Technocracy is in favour of Fed.png federalism and diplomatic pacifism and is extremely secular, often expressing support for Stateath.png state atheist policies, as well as supporting worker's rights, a scientific approach to governance, social equality and civil liberties, seeking to maintain the benefits of both authoritarian and libertarian systems of governance.

    Diplomatic views

    Civic views

    Social Technocracy's civic views can be described as syncretic, attempting to combine the positive aspects of both Sec.png authoritarian and Libertarian.png libertarian systems of governance. He supports a one-party state organised upon technocratic principles, governed by specialists and the scientific elite, with each department operated by the most skilled individuals in their respective fields, as he believes having a single party would increase government efficiency, allow for quicker decision making, facilitate more long-term planning for social progress and keep the most qualified leaders in power as opposed to any politician who happens to win the vote. He believes that such a system is also beneficial as it allows the ruling party to keep those who hold more Conservative.png conservative or Religious.png theocratic views from achieving sufficient political power, additionally supporting the abolition of elections, seeing liberal representative democracy as a fundamentally flawed and inefficient system.

    However, Social Technocracy's ideal system of government stands in contrast to characteristics found in many historical authoritarian governments, as he vehemently rejects both File:Auto.webp autocracy and the cult of personality, viewing the concentration of power in the hands of a single individual as a path to corruption and instead heavily supporting Dem.png democracy within the ruling party and possession of executive power by a technocratic council as opposed to a single leader such as a President or Prime Minister. He views forceful suppression of political dissent as violent and unnecessary, instead choosing to support supporting Lib.png liberal values such as freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of thought, viewing diversity of opinion as an effective means to find new and innovative solutions as to how to further improve society and seeing such freedoms as a fundamental human right. While desiring to abolish elections, Social Technocracy is in favour of federalism and decentralisation, viewing them as means to reduce corruption and ensure the government can act in a manner that benefits the people more effectively, additionally allowing citizens to vote on government action and policies through direct democracy and referendums as in his eyes, removing the representative elements of liberal democracy allows the government to focus more clearly on achieving what is beneficial for both local populations and greater society.

    Personality

    Social Technocracy is generally very scientific-minded, with a File:Rational.png rational and File:Prag.png pragmatic approach to policy-making, a thirst for knowledge and an interest in scientific literature, as well as technology, social welfare and labour rights. He is very critical of religion, Trad.png tradition and socially conservative attitudes, which he sees as an impediment to the evolution of humanity, and while he is much in favour of progressive social policies regarding issues such as Fem.png feminism and Gay.png LGBT rights, he prefers to avoid identity politics most of the time, instead focusing mostly on campaigning in favour of further technological and scientific development. He is also quite utopian in his thinking, balancing his pragmatism with a visionary outlook on how to improve society and what the future could hold for the human race.

    Frenemies

    • Anmona.png Anarcho-Monarchism - You go further than I do in trying to reconcile libertarian and authoritarian values... But that doesn't mean I like you.
    • Anpacf.png Anarcho-Pacifism - Violence is not the answer, but neither is the abolition of the state.
    • Antr.png Anarcho-Transhumanism - I'm in favor of transhumanism as well, but how do you expect to make it happen without any kind of structure backing it up?
    • Antrans.png Archeofuturism - As a fellow transhumanist, I appreciate your admiration of modern and futuristic technology, but we're never going to agree on cultural attitudes unfortunately. We need to look forward to find new solutions, not fall back upon antiquated values.
    • Clib.png Classical Liberalism - I really appreciate the values you set forth, but we have to do more than you thought to help the common people in the modern day.
    • Consocf.png Conservative Socialism - Fellow socialist, but his attitudes are too dated. Our shared dislike for materialism and consumer culture can keep us happily talking for hours, yet he always loses me whenever he starts going on about how "gay marriage is bourgeoisie propaganda".
    • Dem.png Democracy - Not everyone needs to or should have to vote on everyting. We should only let those who really know a subject be able to make changes in that area.
    • Distributist.png Distributism - I'm not a fan of your cultural and religious positions, but economically you're not bad.
    • Egoism.png Egoism - You're honestly kind of deranged, but I can see that you value freedom and personal wellbeing like I do.
    • Georgist.png Georgism - Capitalism needs a lot more regulation than what you want, but at least you're progressive!
    • Leftnat.png Left-Wing Nationalism - Left-wing economics are great, and you don't want to abolish the state! Unfortunately, nationalism will only divide and hold humanity back.
    • Libsoc.png Libertarian Socialism - Workers owning the means of production is ideal, but we still need a state and tightly-regulated markets.
    • Luxem.png Luxemburgism - I admire your progressiveness and commitment to peace. You sure about not wanting a party, though?
    • Mao.png Maoism - You took things a little too far, you were too centralised and some of your ideas sounded better on paper, then again, you're a fellow statist socialist and recognise that a great cultural shift is needed in order for humanity to progress further, so at least we can agree on a few things.
    • Ormarxf.png Marxism - You put forward the basis of a lot of my thinking, but you and Engels had some really nasty views towards gays.
    • ML.png Marxism-Leninism - You have the right attitudes as it pertains to party politics, but you tend to get really dictatorial.
    • File:Moncom.png Monarcho-Socialism - It's an interesting thought, but I'd really rather have experts run things than someone born into the position.
    • Mutalist.png Mutualism - You don't hate markets, great! But you're an anarchist...
    • Sorelia.png National Syndicalism - Organizing workers by their field is a good thing, but you're too authoritarian and too traditionalist for my tastes.
    • Patcon.png Paternalistic Conservatism - You want to regulate capitalism to improve quality of life, but the whole conservatism thing is a turnoff.
    • Progconf.png Progressive Conservatism - Don't you think this is a bit of an oxymoron? Still, I appreciate any progressive attitudes coming from the cultural right.
    • Socdem.png Social Democracy - We're very similar, but voting the same old ineffectual politicians into office forever will be your downfall.
    • Soclib.png Social Liberalism - You're SocDem but more moderate, which is to say that I like you less.
    • Socliber.png Social Libertarianism - Freedoms are great, but a small government and less regulated capitalism just won't cut it.
    • Synd.png Syndicalism - Unions and workers' rights are epic! You can get a bit too adversarial toward the state for my liking, though.

    Enemies

    • Ancapf.png Anarcho-Capitalism Abolishing the state and empowering corporations? You're basically my exact opposite.
    • Anprim.png Anarcho-Primitivism - You literally want to drag us back to the Stone Age, and for what? Any problem you have with industry can be solved with reform and regulation.
