He had to adjust his catch according to the various annual rhythms of the fish species. For the farmer, life was largely linked to the seasons, weather and the rhythms of the animals. However, one of the great conquests of modern technology has been that it has made us – partially – independent of nature’s rhythms. Employment in ‘primary industries’ has become vanishingly small due to huge rationalisations, and these industries have sought to break loose from the cycles of nature: heated and lit greenhouses and livestock buildings have been built so that vegetables can be grown and chickens hatched all year round.
Rhythms have been reduced to controlled repetition. Modern technology has been the most significant means of achieving this fragmentation, but modern scientific forms of organisation have also contributed. Throughout this modernisation process, there has been a loss of rhythmic coordination and cohesion. This loss represents a serious ecological and social impact. ‘Put briefly and simply, the social time regulators subject the biological regulations to ever more serious tests’ (Eriksen 2004: 244).
She learns quickly. One day they decide to go out to have a cup of tea in another restaurant. Aisha is studying sociology. She has read The McDonaldization of Society by Ritzer and she explained the idea to him, and they discussed how it fits with their own experiences. After some days, Peter continues his travels but they keep in contact via e-mail, and they continue their discussions. One year later Aisha comes to Copenhagen. Now they are ready to act and a global movement against McDonaldization is born.
