>> Very many human populations have lost almost their entire resource base (agricultural land, building materials, animal resources, everything) due to human intervention.

Sure, and in how many of those societies did they respect private property rights and use market prices to allocate resources?

Think about why the 407 doesn't have traffic jams, while the 401 does, or why there are plenty of laser eye clinics, but a shortage of family doctors. In both cases, the market based provider never runs out of goods/services, only the government manages to do that.
