Ted was a visionary. His writings have never been more relevant.

159. Will public resistance prevent the introduction of technological
control of human behavior? It certainly would if an attempt were made
to introduce such control all at once. But since technological control will
be introduced through a long sequence of small advances, there will be no
rational and effective public resistance. (See paragraphs 127,132, 153.)
160. To those who think that all this sounds like science fiction, we point
out that yesterday's science fiction is today's fact. The Industrial Revolution
has radically altered man's environment and way of life, and it is only to be
expected that as technology is increasingly applied to the human body and
mind, man himself will be altered as radically as his environment and way of
life have been.
171. But suppose now that industrial society does survive the next several
decades and that the bugs do eventually get worked out of the system, so
that it functions smoothly. What kind of system will it be? We will consider
172. First let us postulate that the computer scientists succeed in
developing intelligent machines that can do all things better than human
beings can do them. In that case presumably all work will be done by vast,
highly organized systems of machines and no human effort will be necessary.
Either of two cases might occur. Ihe machines might be permitted to make
all of their own decisions without human oversight, or else human control
over the machines might be retained.
173. If the machines are permitted to make all their own decisions
we can't make any conjecture as to the results, because it is impossible to
guess how such machines might behave. We only point out that the fate
of the human race would be at the mercy of the machines. It might be
argued that the human race would never be foolish enough to hand over all
power to the machines. But we are suggesting neither that the human race
would voluntarily turn power over to the machines nor that the machines
would willfully seize power. What we do suggest is that the human race
might easily permit itself to drift into a position of such dependence on
the machines that it would have no practical choice but to accept all of the
machines' decisions. As society and the problems that face it become more
and more complex and as machines become more and more intelligent,
people will let machines make more and more of their decisions for them,
simply because machine-made decisions will bring better results than
man-made ones. Eventually a stage maybe reached at which the decisions
necessary to keep the system running will be so complex that human beings
will be incapable of making them intelligently. At that stage the machines
will be in effective control. People won't be able to just turn the machines
off, because they will be so dependent on them that turning them off would
amount to suicide.
I recommend ppl get up to speed on smart grid /5G roll out, CERN, D-Wave quantum super computers, AI, nanotech, genetic engineering, transhumanism (and convergent tech) b/c it's even worse than Ted envisaged 20+ years ago. You can not learn about any one of the above in isolation b/c they dovetail into an overarchingly bleak agenda: Full Spectrum Dominance, as the military refers to humanity's absolute enslavement.
This is a good reading but runs a little too quickly - i include a link to the written text (above). If you read along while listening you'll absorb all that's said in one go.
