tragedy of the non common

adding while reading Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval’s common on rev in 21

first noticed here (note the use h&n singular) – but adding because keep wanting to reference as i read book.. things i see as tragedy of non common that dardot/laval propose as common\ing:


the repeated failures of the various international summits on climate change only underscore the fact that our econ and political leaders remains ensnared w/in the logic of global econ competition.. the idea that humanity now shares a common destiny has failed to take hold, and the paths toward indispensable cooperation remain blocked. we are living the tragedy of the non common

indeed.. for some time.. whales in sea world

thurman interconnectedness lawwhen you understand interconnectedness it makes you more afraid of hating than of dying – Robert Thurman (@BobThurman)

perhaps it’s any form of measuring/accounting that keeps us non commoning

ie: i see ostrom’s 8 as tragedy of non commons

seeing this as an illness from the intermixing of voice and money/measuring/accounting.. system set up to only hear the people/ideas/ie’s with money/measure at root.. to only experiment/research et al with the agenda (most often hidden/buried) of money/measuring ..

being a nobody.. has great privilege/freedom.. ie: can see/hear/experiment w/o agenda/distraction of money/measuring

but we can’t hear/see that.. because we’re focused on money/measuring.. and on voices that do have that agenda (again – most often hidden even to them)

we need to 1\ let go of money (any form of measuring/accounting) and 2\ focus on a mech to listen-to/detox/facil every voice.. everyday (as it could be)

we have to let go of all these (aka: enough) to get back/to our undisturbed ecosystem (aka: common\ing)
