Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
By definition, scarcity means that there is not enough for everyone - with whatever money.

So let's introduce the concept of Democratic Deflation - democracy is inversely proportional to engineered scarcity.

The reality is of course there's plenty for everyone, as long as it's distributed fairly and not hoarded by those delusional individuals who believe they have a right to it.

Is there a point to enlighten everyone?

From the elite point of view, the idea is horrific.

Practically education is a game changer, because if you give as many people as good an education as possible, at least a few of them will research and invent the fuck out of the future.  

You want real growth based on real activity? Educate, inform, and involve. Then stand back and watch what happens.
