suggesting oikos to Michel on his fb post

I need etymological solutions,
I’ve been increasingly pointing out that there is a struggle between three underlying political visions
the first is that we are subjects of sovereigns, this is what both nation-state and corporate sovereigns are pushing in their agendas of surveillance, and control; which we could still clearly call Leviathan, after Hobbes (vision: the human is bad and needs to be controlled)
the second is the anarcho-capitalist hyper-market vision , which we confidently call Mammon, from you know who (vision: if we all do our thing, all will be well)
but how do we call the commons then, the vision of productive citizen-commoners who contribute to shared resources and the common good ? (vision: we need to explicitely care for each other and organize that way)
SO WHAT IS THE EQUIVALENT of Leviathan and Mammon, for us commoners ?

via Michel:

leviathan – human is bad needs controlled

mammon – all do good all will be well

via Jerry:

oikos – economy – all do good all will be will .. ecology – includes all earth.. beyond.. how big is your house..
