Human Nature, being Animalistic dominated, has an automatic “Means” (directed action) “to an End” (achieving Purpose) for its Life Living Theme. Scarce “Means” generate profound Desperation, including those biting the hand that feeds them, even for the little there is. “Scarcity” (Old French C14, scant, meager), means insufficient supply, shortage, lack, deficiency, and want. Its nature implies inadequate resources to supply everyone’s needs and wants. Reactions to “Scarcity” encompass first: Rapacious–the robber instinct of “I’ll get there first and take it all”; second, "Covetous": “I’ll want yours so I’ll have some extra”; third, "Defensiveness"–using any means necessary to keep what one has and prevent others from having any. Like any negative word whose meaning is negative, Scarcity imparts a sense of despair in minds of those involved–both as a form of Poverty itself as well as being dehumanizing in reproducing itself and by making one feel worthless. Desperation and Despair have degrees of Mild (about to give up hope); Slight (having given up hope); Moderate (feeling a Hopelessness associated with an abandonment to fate); and Extreme (so deep inside the abyss as to engage in “any reckless destructive means necessary” to bring about even a tiny bit of change). This context–summarized by the word “Desperado”—is a person made reckless by making peace with doom. Such “Scarcity’s” arose when Grimaldi Negroids moved up through northern Africa into Europe to become, many believe, the Aurignacian foundations (c45,000 BC) of the various European "races." Over the next 20,000 years, they transformed into White people–e.g. Aryan, Alpine, and Slavic (Diop, African Origins p260; King, Africa p57; Bynum African Unconscious). During this Ice Age, the “Ice People” (e.g. Scandinavians, Germans, and Southern Russians), living in the Baltic Sea region, encountered fierce weather in the Eurasian Steppes (vast treeless grasslands from the icy cold in winter). The barrenness of those regions and the lack of productivity from the soil all fashioned a setting of necessity for basic survival (Asante, “Afrocentricity,” p. 81) and an ever-striving for security inside a chaotic dimension.
At that time, the Ice Age environment ensured anti-humanity assumptions (e.g. the necessity for Indifference towards others) because of the realism needed for survival by "any means necessary." Viewing their world as hostile, initially, their warring nature was oriented towards individuals; later, nomadic tribes robbed and killed less aggressive neighbors in order to acquire necessities; then they settled into a battling course–persisting from 45,000 years ago to today–between “the Haves” wanting excesses at the expense of the “Have nots”. To this end, primitive Europeans warriors developed Kill/Take/Destroy “Scarcity gods” in the warriors’ own image to rely on as a model. One, Thor, the Norse god of thunder, was son of King Odin. By these Eurasians also lacking other environmental advantages of Life Living necessities made it easy to develop a "kill and take" or "take and kill" 'second nature' mindset of Scarcity. This pattern became a Trait I "Zombie" Habit— a lifestyle imparting a sense of victory when scarcity was no longer a problem following the Ice Age in 12,500 BC. Plato characterized those 'second nature' experiences as producing imprints or impressions on the mind's “wax”–called “Memory Traces” or Engrams–i.e. the "Seed and Roots" of the Scarcity Tree Concept.
Out of Trait I, arose greed–Trait II—the success of which demanded “Individualism” (‘every man for himself’)–Trait III. The addicting “Winning thrill” to create battles for its own sake—Trait V. Their Reaction Formation defense mechanism–Trait VI–made Fear an obsessive-compulsive (persistent uncontrollable impulses) form of entertainment–Trait VII. Their imaginations, associated with anxiety and Fear, generated fantasies–Trait VIII—taking Phantasmagoric forms, like monsters. Fearful person need to be led by evil leaders with great power –Trait IX—and, by so doing, find bits and pieces of safety which urges Daredevil excitement. As Bullies, they saw Victims as subhuman and “Invisible” so as to–Trait X—Project (turning their personal inferiorities into perceived moral deficiencies onto Victims) and Stereotyping them. Their inability to do Mathematical Thinking made all they did confusing, conflicting, and ambiguous–with “all-or-none” and “either/or” beliefs and opinions. This lacking of “options” ensured continual wars. [Ref: Bailey, Public Self Success and Post-Traumatic Distress Syndrome in Black Americans]jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
