... you cannot get poor enough to make even one other better of financially ... and a few more analogies along this line.
Wayne Dyer is wrong on this account. Money is a drawing right from a fixed pool of resources. The more you have, the less everyone else has. The crass reality is that destroying your savings (in money - not in resources) will make everyone else better off. Financial melt-down is actually a good thing for most people.
It works similarily with other fixed resources - the less you consume, the more is left over for others. For example oil, water, ore, arable land, and so on.
The MBT commandment of "optimizing free will for all" has a few builtin contradictions. For example, the ultimate way for me
to optimize the decision space for others is to commit suicide, because it leaves all options open.
By asserting my will, I necessarily put limits on other people.
I agree with the original post about limiting free will in second/third/fourth orders. If I eat a fish - who starves? Who's fishing stock am I depleting? Who will starve in future generations because I disturbed the eco system?
Selflessness is an illusion in physical reality precisely because the physical world is defined by limits and quotas. I participate by making decisions about what should be used for what.
