 Are Social Based Systems Capable Of Repairing Current Ecological and Climate Based Crisis?

No, Social Based Systems Alone Are Not Capable, In A Market Economy, To Overcome The Ecological Crisis On A Global Scale Currently.

In effect, such social systems will only perpetuate or allow the transformation of such ideals to new domains. A Systemic cloning of 'Commodities' or the need to make a profit by such constructs as entitlements runs counter to society based institutions (absorption).

The given notion alone is a phenomenal and somewhat over-reaching aspect to a very in depth psychological, historical, economic and global Issue of conformity. Confronting such objectives may provoke strong opinions to the subject at hand, yet we can not ignore the damage that has been done by the history of heavy industrialism, As well, international 'Dominion' based trade and treaties, which in effect has thrown the balance of production and distribution off  for the past 500 years (colonialism and empire building). 

We begin examining current human based and profit motive ecological crises as a  'Social' phenomena based on a systemic model thats being recycled by constructed human social institutions. These internal man made systems must be examined based on 2 periods. The first, 500 years (1450 to 1950)  and additionally, a period of 70 years from 1950 to 2020, well into the 21st century. 

In this, Nature as an entity, can not be compared to 'Social' institutions due to such societies and their inability to do little more then perpetuate bias, waste and environmental conditions in the pursuit of capital, which now threatens to destroy the whole planet. In respect, Nature must be looked at as an autonomous self-determined system.

A psychological understanding of 'Human Habits', methods and the pursuit of capital are to be examined as strong bonds to break. Entitlement must be questioned and examined closely and critically by academic and literary aspects, as well as media based scrutiny. 

The prime motive for such critic is based on the in-ability for 'Social' constructs or human institutions of the past, including ’Environmentalism' or ‘conservative’ measures to provide enough comprehensive results or convincing proof of repair regarding the crisis thus far.  This relates to any human construct or proliferation of waste, 'Capitalism' and or ‘Socialism’s’.  In fact, any ISM's inability to cure social ills such as poverty, hunger or even the current economic or environmental crisis that confronts our enviornment. 

The plan is to implement measures around consumer and products that reverse the current critical states. 'Consumerism' and acquisition based societies must be studied in its modern form based on several findings and marketing schemes in the 20th century.  8 generations will be examined for marketing trends and the increase in goods and services revolving around such trends. From 1948 to now, a special group in America will be emphasized, So-Called ‘Teenagers’ from 13 - 19. This group will be examined as a marketing innovation purely for consumption of goods and services. With a thrust in the late 80-00's by the now grown 'Baby Boomers'. Known in and around America for their extravagant tastes, insatiable want and big ticket purchases for two of everything (That too).

In depth analysis of current market systems, commercialism and several ‘Modern’ economies based on 'Voluntary Consumerism' and 'Planned Obsolescence’, with an objective of natural system repair over constructed or modified systems, initiates the research. The influence of social systems must be avoided in order not to taint the data., owed to steering committees, pr  firms, special interest groups and the like.  From the traditional ranks of conservationism to radical approaches of disrupt. A new paradigm must be utilized against the backdrop of the failings of old.

A technological, non-biological aspect must be examined as a commodity based system. Hence, commodifiaction of the internet from 1998 to around 2008.  Examining its early growth as an autonomous ‘Society of sorts’ that laid the foundation for the current categories of 'Cyber' or synthetic markets online.  

Lastly, as a solution based model we examine quality over quantity in respect to products longevity once at home. Entailing an in depth analysis of 'Planned' obsolescence', challenging  the corporate environments commitment for sustainability. 

It is my initial thought  that Consumerism must be examined from the product level. Disposable goods create more waste. Quality goods, limit the frequency to market and the need for new items, like tires every 3 years.  

A proposed shift for sustainable goods over long periods seems to be the best way to interact in the market immediately. Simplt get rid of the junk! Quality in equals quality out.
