Production vs. Consumption
I’ve always been interested in history.
I’ve one thing from history is that all societies end up collapsing.
Every since we invented, or discovered, agriculture, we’ve had a kind of shelf life.
Which kind of makes sense, but from a really big picture kind of way.
A tribe of nomadic hunter gatherers were in equilibrium with their environment.
Just like every other animal.
If any tribe got too big, they’d split and go there separate ways.
We slowly spread out across the globe.
Then there was an ice age.
And after the ice age, some lucky humans found themselves in the fertile crescent.
This was a homogenous, natural farm.
A crap ton of naturally growing cereals, grains and animals.
This made us not have to be nomads.
We were nomads BECAUSE we were always looking for food.
A group of fifty people needed 100,000 calories per day.
This doesn’t exist in one area.
This many calories can only come from large animals.
Which themselves, kept migrating.
But after the ice age, that all changed.
We didn’t have to migrate.
Best Time Ever
For a while, this was fantastic.
But then there was a lot of people.
This slowly CHANGED our natural, calorie acquisition strategy.
We had to deliberately farm and grow stuff.
Anthropologists say this is new problems popped up.
Particularly, something they call the “freeloader problem.”
If you are hunter gatherer, in a tribe where everybody knows everybody, it is IMPOSSIBLE to cheat.
It is impossible to consume without producing.
Rise Of The Cheaters
It’s very much a world of “if you don’t kill, you don’t eat.”
But in large agricultural societies, it’s very EASY to figure how to con your way forward.
Everybody, at every level.
This is why all societies tend to collapse.
Pretty soon, everybody is consuming, and nobody is producing.
What the heck does this have to do with anything?
One common mental block to maximum success is being “stuck” in the childhood mindset.
Anytime you believe SOMEBODY ELSE is responsible for your well being, that’s a limitation.
You cannot RECEIVE your way to riches or love or sex.
Build Your Own
You can only CREATE.
Waiting around for somebody to GIVE YOU something is very, very common.
Very, very popular.
But what’s NOT common is figuring out how to GET what you want.
To put yourself in this mindset, you need to LEAVE BEHIND any childish thinking.
Things like blame, guilt, shame, or grudges.
All these negative emotions that are associated with things from the past are like huge bricks you’re dragging around.
Cut them loose, and get on with your life.
Only YOU can do this.
