The ideas behind resourcism stems from the ideas that humans are above and apart, not part of the “natural” world around them. The idea of recourcism began when it was much more reasonable idea, populations were small and comparatively, people’s consumption was also considerably less. The problem that arises from resourcism and the way it is applied today is that there are simply not enough resources for our modern society to consume natural resources at the rate we do for much longer. Nature’s power to provide natural resources can only extend to certain lengths. The modern ideas on resourcism must properly adjusted to minimize usage and waste because we must recognize that unlike the past, our societies are more interconnected to our environment today and for the future(Farrell 3-11).
