Essential Limits Berry, Wendell. "Faustian Economics: Hell Hath No Limits." Harper's Magazine. The Harper's Magazine Foundation, May 2008. Web. 20 Aug. 2011. Read this article In Berrys' article, it talks about the idea of having limits. Without limits we will essentially use up all of our resources. In a sense, the population will need to understand that we are potentially omniscient and omnipotent. The author talks about how the world will have to start over with a new and much more wise mind set. The population keeps spending, wasting, consuming and polluting our earth with no sense of what will happen in years to come. Berry believes that the world has come to a misunderstanding of importance, maintaining that the population has a right to be as wasteful as they want. The authors' point of view is definitely worth thinking about. If America can come to a mutual understanding and motivate each other, the world will be a better place. The ideas towards limitlessness need to be eliminated if America plans on having plentiful resources. There are many people who have no idea nor have ever thought about the damage that they have contributed to the world. Believing there are no ends to our resources will allow America to keep foolishly using and wasting our resources. The idea of fossil fuels is critical for the human race to comprehend. Our resources are depleting and there needs to be new and improved forms of conservation. Essentially the author believes the population should work harder on understanding that we cannot believe in limitless resources.
