We are told that things like gold and silver are in short supply. We hear about the worlds shortage of oil. The news tells us about the lack of food or money to tackle a certain crisis. The songs on the radio inundate us about the need or loss of love.
The real resource that is in short supply is ambition. Without it, nothing else can move forward. Ambition is neither good or bad. Ambition makes history. Ambition starts and wins wars. It creates inventions, medicine, our civilization. With out it we will collapse as a species.
