    How to use "Not too many" in context?

    One of the most commonly voiced fears is that we won't have enough resources to sustain ourselves. But is this really a legitimate fear? When we look at the state of the world and the resources that are available to us, it seems like we don't have too few resources, we have too few.

    Too few resources mean that we can't do the things that we want to do. Too few resources mean that we can't make the changes that we need to make. Too few resources means that we can't solve the problems that we face.

    So how do we handle this fear?
