Irreni Solutions vs The Scale of Donald Trump

Hi! Happy Sunday!

Irreni World Scale is about political solutions and not political punditry.

The first solution is a calming reminder of Trump's influence:

  1. Trump as President can easily be removed from office when both parties are against him. Paul Ryan will be the next President if Trump is elected.
  2. Claims made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.
    Gallons upon gallons of hyperbolic words are being written about why Trump and perceived Trump terror. However, this is a reminder that the science of culture and understanding human behavior on large scales in the millions is poorly understood where it exists at all. Everyone is just making stuff up. 
This scale of Donald Trump post then is simply a reminder that if two-thirds of Congress is against him then Trump can easily be removed from office. The scale of Donald Trump is also a reminder that the science of people analyzing Trump's behavior and the millions of people reacting to that behavior is almost non-existent. Our scientific understanding of human nature at the scale of millions is almost none. Therefore, take all the hyperbole analyzing Trump with a YUGE grain of salt.

Irreni World Scale is about the concept of scale. Scale is something I think about every day as a computer scientist. Everyday I work with differing degrees of scale. One of the things that becomes increasingly apparent when working with scale is that different degrees of scale require different solutions. Those differing solutions of scale are never discussed in politics today.

Another solution that I would to put forth is perspective: we humans are lousy at thinking in scale but we now live in a world of scale.

The United States today has 300 million people. I live in the State of California that has 30 million people. As humans we typically fail at thinking in scale at these large numbers. Once we realize the entire world has seven billion people we throw our hands up? Aggggh!

To this end I would like to point out something about Donald Trump that has not gotten any press: human foibles in perspective of scale.

Trump during this week's Republican debate in Florida made a claim that eliminating fraud and abuse in Medicare and particularly in prescription drugs would save 100s billions of dollars. The moderators pointed out government analysis showed that such eliminating of corruption and fraud would mostly likely only eliminate 3 billion dollars. Trumps response was to keep repeating his claim. This was a frustration of scale.

People see in Trump a reflection of frustration within themselves in the 21st Century of high tech and high scale. Trump's entire campaign is built on a scale platform: build a wall between Mexico and the US and have Mexico pay for it. Critics have pointed out two facts that undermine Trump's platform of scale. First, 40% of illegals in the US came here by airplane. Second, net immigration with Mexico has been zero for years now.

So, net immigration has been zero and 40% of illegal Mexicans came here by plane and yet Trump and his followers want a wall. If people are really determined to get here then Mexicans have shown they know how to tunnel and they can also come by boat. Yet Trump and his followers want a wall. A wall is a solution of scale that people can relate too.

Trump reflects a certain populace that feels frustrated with scale and powerless to do anything. False hope, it seems, is better than a complete nothing of not understanding scale.

Can you blame Trump and his followers? Every day people lose more control over their jobs and their lives due to necessities of scale. Whether it is the food supply, housing prices, water supply, climate change or gasoline prices scale impacts our lives everyday and we do not understand it.

Trump is giving people a false sense of scale hope. Build a wall. Make a good deal. Eliminate fraud and abuse.

Irreni World Scale has solutions for helping people cope with everyday scale. The primary vehicle is new social groups of 30 people, call them tribes. These tribes are intended to be scientifically formulated to provide the 30 people with a cross-section of experience, expertise, dependency and perspective. These tribes are anti-tribes with respect to the violent, isolated historical notion of tribes being homogeneous in make up of belief and culture.  Irreni tribes are not permanent but ever changing as people change and their needs change.

Are Irreni tribes the answer? We don't know. The plan is based on our very best understanding of human nature today, the best we can scientifically come up. However, Irreni is a system of multiple scientific experiments running in parallel and tribes is one such experiment. Successes are to be expanded, failures are recorded.

Irreni World Scale is about scale. The genesis of the Trump movement is scale: build a wall. The fundamental problem is we humans do not have minds that think in scale and building a wall is something we understand, even if we know it is not effective.

The political answer today is not to build a wall, but to rebuild our social groups from the ground up, groups that are designed and engineered to scale. The political answer is Irreni World Scale.
