Oh really?

How many technocrats do you know who you'd entrust with your life decisions? What are the odds that they'd be the ones in that position as opposed by the resume-packing tards who infest student govts everywhere?

Eisenhower's "military industrial complex" speech was actually a warning about technocracy. (The MIC stuff gets more play because it fits the narrative and has cute phrasing.)
