“The man who wrote one of environmentalism’s most-cited essays was a racist, eugenicist, nativist and Islamaphobe—plus his argument was wrong” by @firstname.lastname@example.org https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/the-tragedy-of-the-tragedy-of-the-commons/
The Tragedy of the Commons is capitalist propaganda, anyway, so I'm unfortunately not surprised.
@ben_hr Oh, wow. You know this makes so much sense. There is a ton of evidence that the commons don't work the way he says. I fact the commons often work the opposite from what he says in traditional cultures, i.e. acaquia water democracy in New Mexico, for one
Can you even call that environmentalism, I mean really?
@ben_hr Holy shit. I felt that there's something sketchy with the tragedy of the commons, and now I understand why.
