"With the welfare state, most of these commons were state-ified, i.e. managed by the state, and no longer by the commoners themselves. [...] Today, with the crisis of the welfare state, we see the re-development of new grassroots solidarity systems, which we could call ‘commonfare’, and the neoliberalisation and bureaucratisation of the welfare systems may well call for a re-commonification of welfare systems, based on public-commons partnerships." commonstransition.org/history-
