Resource, Resistance and Neutral Stuff

Resource, Resistance and Neutral Stuff. Light and darkness, profit and loss, assets and liabilities are pairs of words linked up logically. 'Resource and resistance' is also such an inseparable pair. Where there is resource there is also resistance. Nature provides us with things which can function as resources, e.g., land to yield crops, coal for energy, and rain for agriculture and so on. Nature also presents us some harmful things, i.e., resistance, such as barren and unproductive soil, typhoon, hurricane, flood to destroy, poisons, diseases, etc. These harm or hinder man and are called resistances.

Light and darkness, profit and loss, assets and liabilities are pairs of words linked up logically. 'Resource and resistance' is also such an inseparable pair. Where there is resource there is also resistance. Nature provides us with things which can function as resources, e.g., land to yield crops, coal for energy, and rain for agriculture and so on. Nature also presents us some harmful things, i.e., resistance, such as barren and unproductive soil, typhoon, hurricane, flood to destroy, poisons, diseases, etc. These harm or hinder man and are called resistances.

In the field of man also there are similar resources, and resistances. Education, training, improved health, national and, social feelings optimum population, social morality, etc., are resources. Whereas, ignorance, greed, under population, over population, racial conflict, class struggle, war, etc., are resistances.

In the field of culture again, tools, machines, good government facilities for commerce and finance, scientific management, etc., are resources. Whereas, obsolete equipments, conservative attitude, vested interests, business depression, abortive policies, etc., are resistances.

Anything that benefits man or anything that leads to human welfare is resource; Oil on the other hand, anything that harms or hinders man is resistance. We cannot think of a country or a society which has only resources and no resistances. Resources and resistances exist side by side.

Let us make an imaginary measurement of human satisfaction and welfare.

Suppose a society has sufficient resources to yield satisfaction and welfare to the extent of 100 units: at the same time, it has resistance to yield dissatisfaction to the extent of, say, 50 units. The ultimate satisfaction and welfare of the society is, therefore, to the extent of 50 units. Atomic energy is a unique resource created by man of the century. This energy can be used for productive purposes and can bring human welfare. It is coming into productive fields but rather slowly.

It is not bringing as much of human welfare as it could probably do. Some amount of secrecy is maintained about it. This is because the world has a political atmosphere of the cold war which is a resistance and the atomic energy can also be used for colossal destruction. Therefore, the extent of human welfare and satisfaction depends on the combined effects of atomic energy itself and its associated resistances.

Instead of looking at this with an entire country or planet, it is interesting to look at it from a personal aspect.

Money for example is a resource, that without, a person would have a very hard time finding shelter, clothing and food. A person works to buy food and pay for shelter for himself and possibly a family. As a person works they accumulate more money and can possibly save money.

As a person makes more money, they tend to spend more, which can lead to resistance and a stressful situation. This can lead to taking on too much debt which is certainly a resistance to living a good and comfortable life. Money can actually apply to a person or an entire country.
