Abundance of Resources
There is an interesting division between the political left and right on their views on the availability and management of natural resources.
The Left sees the future availability of resources such as oil, natural gas, energy, trees, minerals, land, food, water, commodities and even manufactured items as very limited in supply. Because of this limitation we must conserve. It is ironical that in this area it is the Left which is extremely conservative, even though they are called liberals by the masses.
The political right has a different take. They do not merely consider resources available now and make the mistake in thinking that nothing will change. Instead, they believe that human ingenuity will figure out ways to create all the resources we need to provide for us in the future. All we have to do is give people the freedom they need to manifest them.
DK seems to agree with this idea as never once did he say that there would not be enough natural resources available for us in the future. The only problem he saw in this regard was that a lack of right human relations and a lack of goodwill would interfere with a distribution to those in need.
Concerning resources he said:
These are: first, the recognition that there is enough food, fuel, oil and minerals in the world to meet the need of the entire population.
Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Page 197
This is as true today as it was in 1940 when he made this statement. There are plenty of natural resources to take care of the whole world. We just have to have the freedom to go after them, produce them and then distribute them.
The Left creates a stumbling block in the manifestation of the abundance of these resources because many do everything in their power to prevent humanity from obtaining them. They attempt seal up new sources of oil production, natural gas, coal, atomic energy and even wind and solar in some cases. They push for these limitation even in poor countries that desperately need energy for survival.
Let us just look at one commodity, oil. Almost all the predictions about its future availability were wrong, really wrong. Here are some examples.
In 1885, the US Geological Survey announced that there was “little or no chance” of oil being discovered in California. In 1891, it said the same thing about Kansas and Texas.
“Petroleum has been used for less than 50 years, and it is estimated that the supply will last about 25 or 30 years longer. If production is curtailed and waste stopped it may last till the end of the century.”
July 19, 1909 Titusville Herald (Titusville, PA)
In 1939 the US Department of the Interior said that American oil supplies would last only another 13 years.
“M. King Hubbert of the Shell Development Co. predicted [one year ago] that peak oil production would be reached in the next 10 to 15 years and after that would gradually decline.”
March 9, 1957 Corpus Christi Times (Corpus Christi, TX)
The Limits to Growth (1972) – projected the world would run out of gold by 1981, mercury and silver by 1985, tin by 1987, zinc by 1990, petroleum by 1992, and copper, lead and natural gas by 1993.
“At any rate, U.S. oil supplies will last only 20 years. Foreign supplies will last 40 or 50 years, but are increasingly dependent upon world politics.”
May 1972 Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists
“As a nation, Americans have been reluctant to accept the prospect of physical shortages. We must recognize that world oil production will likely peak in the early 1990’s, and from that point on will be on a declining curve. By the early part of the 21st century, we must face the prospect of running out of oil and natural gas.”
1977 US Department of Energy
Each time some wrong, shortsighted prediction is made about some natural resource the Left assumes it is the gospel truth and builds its ideas for conservation around it.
The Right, on the other hand, factors in the truth of human ingenuity and creativity. They see us as problem solvers that can take charge of our destiny.
The thread of all DK’s writings agree with this approach. He sounds this positive note when speaking of atomic energy.
Man will eventually come to the realisation that in atomic energy, harnessed to his need, or in the inducing of increased radioactivity, lies for him the path to prosperity and riches.
