    Giving socialism a new name will not make it work.

    That is not what a technocracy is. That is socialism. A Technocracy is ruled by the technical elite (scientists, engineers, i.e. technocrats). Now while I might find that a pleasant idea, the majority of people, being less than intellectually gifted, would be second-class citizens under such a system, so it would never succeed, class warfare problems. That was one thing Marx had right. No strictly stratified social system can survive long-term becauseof class warfare.
