039 Entropic European Civilization

Entropic is the measure between the uncertainties of an outcome. According to Dictionary.com, Entropy is a function of thermodynamic variables, as temperature, pressure, or composition that is a measure of the energy that is not available. There seemed to be an uncertainty outcome between the European and American society; entropic theory. It was the progressive era for the American society; reconstruction from the civil War, slavery, industrialization, and women’s right. The US was in the state of progressing their society to have a better economy and grow from the ashes of the Civil War. At the same time, it was the modern era for the European society; WWI, and the Russian Revolution. Both America and Europe had their own economic problems to solve.



Sigmund Freud had his own revolutionary ideas. Freud didn’t precisely state that Europeans were better than Americans, it was the way he harshly expressed himself about the Americans. Freud travelled from Germany to the US, experienced US society and culture and decided to go back to Germany because “he believed the trip had ruined both his stomach and his bladder.” When he comes back from the US, he begins giving his opinions on about America and says, "America is a mistake, a gigantic mistake." He feels that America was “brash and rude.” He did not like the labor jobs and the unions that were formed. Slavery came from African American and children so he thought of it as an unfair game; they were only valued for employment. Freud went into detail about the child and Negro labor that the US had. He compared how the wealthier class pretended to care about the poverty going on in the US at that time. (picture on left, Sigmund Freud)
