There’s No Place Like Home for the HOlidays

In honor of Thanksgiving, the Zebra headed back to the serengetti plains to spend some much-needed time with friends and family. But this zebra doesn’t just hang out with members of its own species, even though there’s strength in numbers:

A herd of zebras, also known as a zeal. Although black-and-white stripes seem like a counterintuitive camoflouge mechanism on a tropical savannah, the presence of multiple zebras in close proximity makes it difficult for predators to determine where one animal ends and another one begins.

…so it’s about time I introduced you to my neighbors, the Big Five game animals. This diverse group includes apex predators, such as the African lion and leopard, as well as efficient herbivores such as the African elephant, rhinoceras, and Cape buffalo.

Needless to say, if you’re an archaic Homo sapiens, this is a very difficult environment to survive in*. In the face of such stiff ecological competition, the ancestors of modern humans developed two traits that allowed them survive. One was a desire to consume rich fatty foods that were the product of kills scavenged from predators. Another was a desire to mate whenever the opportunity presented itself to replenish losses to the early human population. As a result, in a postmodern feminist society, the desire to engage in pleasure never stops increasing, mirroring the process of increasing economic profits in free market capitalism.

Although alpha males and females still dominate this culture, the characteristics which make them alphas are no
longer limited to innate traits. It is possible to become an alpha merely by going through an experience that is not
available to the general population. Early childhood experiences are a classic example of this phenomenon. In
addition, alpha characteristics are no longer exclusively social skills, such as the ability to find mates; they can be economic skills as well.

Post-Industrial Economics

Whereas societies which practice conservative feminism are known for having strict developmental deadlines, and
few options for those who miss them, societies practicing postmodern feminism are considerably more flexible. The
most widely cited example of postmodern developmental processes is the modern corporation. Although most jobs in
a modern corporation have explicit requirements for the skills and qualifications needed to be hired, those can be
waived if an applicant is able to prove they can perform the tasks which are expected of them.

This flexibility extends to the physical process of producing work. Unlike conservative feminism, which requires workers to
remain physically present at their work locations for a predetermined period of time and take breaks only as allowed
by their employer, postmodern feminism places no such restrictions on workers provided that they can complete the tasks which are assigned to them. Groups which were at a competitive disadvantage under conservative feminism, such as women and the elderly, are able to participate since the work is less physically demanding. Disadvantaged communities also benefit from the fact that the workplace is an environment where they are free from physical violence and criminal prosecution, with perhaps the exception of military and law enforcement organizations.

The aforementioned social changes give rise to a post-industrial economy, where workers are valued primarily for specific skills which they can provide as opposed to the quantity of products they can create. In lieu of physical products, the goods that are exchanged in this economy are services provided to clients. One potential downside of this economic system is that workers can be fired by their employers at any time for any reason, including for no reason at all. One upside is that increased female participation in the workforce also leads to lower birth rates, although this trend may be assisted by industrial technology, such as the mass-production of condoms and other contraceptives.

* This also explains why there are no bear species currently living in Africa.
