The site makes a good point about stories. I use that concept myself in 
"Post-Scarcity Princeton" -- we need to change our mythology.

The problem I have with their site is that they seem to already be embedded 
in a mythology of scarcity. :-) They skirt the line is the best I could say.

Those scarcity myths are potentially deadly when you have technologies of 
abundance like robotics, AI, nanotech, nuclear energy, biotech, global 
networks, and so on to use in fighting over perceived scarcity. :-(
