Saul believes that maximizing the knowledge in the universe is the highest moral aim. Fallibilism is his most strongly held conviction. He believes that tentative knowledge (not absolute knowledge) can be attained and improved upon through conjecture and refutation. He believes that free-market capitalism (not cronyism) is the best known political system for maximizing knowledge and human flourishing. He is committed to never lying. He advocates open-ended population growth, because he estimates that the average person is more of a problem-solver than a problem-causer.
