This article explains how we leverage our knowledge in a systematic way to improve our position. Improving our position is always a challenge, but,without these rules , progress can seem impossible. These people think that our resources are inherently limited. This limitations seem to suggest that success is a zero-sum game. To advance our position, we must take from other. People who think this way see progress itself as evil. As the population of the world increases, they think that we must all grow poorer because our limited resources must be shared among more and more people. Populations must therefore be controlled. People must be stopped from building and consuming because everything requires resources. From this perspective, the only moral strategy is to give up on personal progress and success.
