Fear of Scarcity is No More Natural Than Trust in Abundance. Both Are Learned
Economists and libertarians often believe that scarcity is natural, and therefore selfishness is rational.
However, the fear of scarcity is a premise, not a fact, nor a conclusion of dispassionate research.
Christian ethics helps us overcome the fear which leads to selfishness, through the hope we have in the inexhaustible and trustworthy source of abundance.
And the only proof we can offer that there will be enough is our own generous example.
