Technocracy News has stated many times that rural America is not safe from Smart City transformation. but rather is seen as a necessary part of it. After all, if you 'engineer' a city as a work center, you must provide resources to keep the workforce alive. ? TN Editor
The Western Governors Association (WGA), which encompasses 17 western states, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam, has partnered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to bring technocracy to rural citizens, cleverly disguised through their Reimagining the Rural West (RRW) initiative. In October, November, and December of this year, workshops were held to bring this initiative to citizens.
North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum is given credit for brainstorming this initiative and in his introductory remarks the initiative was a blatant regurgitation of Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The need for this initiative is based on the supposed plight of rural communities and their need for economic development. In reality, through this initiative, full scientific and social control over rural America with be brought in with technocracy to meet the 17 SDGs.
