Unique Times

case 1880 m

 

Yes unique times very much so, in fact to the point of a game changer of a day a lot had to have happened to do this

1) Had to be active on Twitter

2) Had to have talked at great length with some good pals who are big about American manufacturing

3)  Had to have Lunch with Mr. S

4) Had to see two acts of great kindness by two very poor folks to a homeless man who had less

5) Back in a few weeks ago I had to long talk with someone about Racine’s History and followed up with reading of Racine history in the 1880-1950’s

This became well all part of a brainstorm that a new idea to carry out here in this blog that being

Racine was was once a leader in Manufacturing and innovation can you say Case or Hamilton  Beach? Now not so much now we are #1-2 in unemployment we have little manufacturing here any more

Jobs in Machine shops that use to pay a living wage now pay less then $12 if you can find one at all.

How did this happen? Could anything been done?   Was it fate? Bad luck?  Bush’s fault? Unions? My fault?

Thinking be interesting to take a look from time to time  on whole history that needs to be looked at as we became Racine in Runes

    Nah.

    It can be readily explained:

    “Today, when one observes the many severe environmental and social problems, it appears that we are rushing towards extinction and are powerless to stop it. Why can’t we save ourselves? To answer that question we only need to integrate three of the key influences on our behavior: biologic evolution, natural selection, and a proposed fourth law of thermodynamics called the “Maximum Power Principle”(MPP). The MPP states that biological systems will organize to increase power[1] generation, by degrading more energy, whenever systemic constraints allow it

    Since natural selection occurs under thermodynamic laws, individual and group behaviors are biased by the MPP to generate maximum power, which requires over-reproduction and/or over-consumption of resources[3]—“overshoot”—whenever system constraints allow it. Individuals and families will form social groups to generate more power by degrading more energy. Differential power generation and accumulation result in a hierarchical group structure.

    Overshoot eventually leads to decreasing power attainable for the group with lower-ranking members suffering first. Low-rank members will form subgroups and coalitions to demand a greater share of power from higher-ranking individuals who will resist by forming their own coalitions to maintain it. Meanwhile, social conflict will intensify as available power continues to fall.

    Eventually, members of the weakest group (high or low rank) are forced to either disperse,[4] those who don’t disperse are killed,[5] enslaved, or in modern times imprisoned. By most estimates, 10 to 20 percent of Stone Age people died at the hands of other humans. The natural overshoot followed by forced dispersal may be seen as a sort of repetitive pumping action—a “collective behavioral loop that drove humans into every inhabitable niche.

    Here is a synopsis of the behavioral loop described above:

    Step 1. Individual and group behaviors are biased by the MPP to generate maximum power, which requires over-reproduction and/or over-consumption of natural resources (overshoot), whenever systemic constraints allow it. Individuals and families will form social groups to generate more power by degrading more energy. Differential power generation and accumulation result in a hierarchical group structure.

    Step 2. Energy is always limited so overshoot eventually leads to decreasing power available to the group with lower-ranking members suffering first.

    Step 3. Diminishing power availability creates divisive subgroups within the original group. Low-rank members will form subgroups and coalitions to demand a greater share of power from higher-ranking individuals, who will resist by forming their own coalitions to maintain it.

    Step 4. Violent social strife eventually occurs among subgroups who demand a greater share of the remaining power.

    Step 5. The weakest subgroups (high or low rank) are forced to either disperse to a new territory, are killed, enslaved, or imprisoned.

    Step 6. Go back to step 1. ”

    For comparison, the wolf is the government and the sheep are the sheeple Wake up Racine !
