The Key to Understanding the World

“It’s very existence is too improbable for any one person to truly comprehend”

I, Pencil: The Movie

  • The world we live in: we should be dumbstruck by its intricacy and brilliance
  • Each part of the pencil is the result of the cooperation and collaboration of millions of people
  • no mastermind or central authority dictating how a pencil is made
  • all actions involved in process are voluntary
  • by working to create, labor and skill is traded for things each individual desires
  • free market:  the spontaneous configuration of creative human energies
  • everyone benefits from voluntary, spontaneous, cooperation
