They Aren't "Technocrats"

And, yes, we should retire the word. As Chunky BoBo columns go there are worse ones, but it's a decent moment to point out that the "technocrats" everyone keeps talking about in Europe are just ideologues of a certain flavor, ideologues who are likely to destroy the thing they're pretending to try to save.

Whatever the word is supposed to mean, "technocrat" is just this year's "Very Serious Person." In another words, just more assholes who like to destroy the world while patting themselves on the back for how brave and smart they are.
