If you eat, you’re probably using a maximized system. Food is a commodity produced in chain, most fo the times. Every part of the chain is under huge pressure to increase revenue of the producers. The animals are pushed to the brink, and so are the humans that work on them. Same story about banking. Every investment is chosen for maximum short term benefit, because that’s the only way for the bank to beat the other banks. Same ld story. A race to the bottom. The challenge gets worse when a maximized system is pushed a little further. “Maximized” means that more demands and more inputs lead to degradation, lower output and eventual system failure.
