Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For anyone who tries to wade through that book the basic message is: Modern societies have become so complex that only those who understand the technological umbilical cord that supports us are really qualified to make the big decisions of government and other group behavior.  The group with the best mechanisms for learning and teaching these facts is the engineers.

It has been pointed out the highest tier of the Chinese government is (almost?) entirely made up of engineers.
