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
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)

Resources don’t get over-exploited because they are governed as commons. They get over-exploited precisely because they are *not* governed as commons.
i’d add – governing as commons is beyond ostrom 8 governing.. because governing as commons.. assumes no one needs to train/manage anyone.. trusting 8b people to do their part in the dance
imagine if we just focused on listening to the itch-in-8b-souls.. first thing.. everyday.. and used that data to augment our interconnectedness.. we might just get to a more antifragile, healthy, thriving world.. the ecosystem we keep longing for..

Game theory is all about coordination problems. Take the tragedy of the commons: you have some common resource of constant size, such as a meadow.
game theory via google search: Game theory is the study of mathematical models of strategic interaction among rational decision-makers
game theory is about math/control/decision-making.. which is part of the coordination problem.. part of the poison.. not letting go of the assumptions.. of the math, control, decisions based on a finite set of choices.. et al
Almost everything that is wrong with the world, I think, is caused not by people being bad or evil, but by coordination problems. The unilateralist’s curse shows that this doesn’t just apply when people are acting self-interestedly, but even when everyone is trying to be noble and good. And short of banning whistleblowers, ending open science and generally sliding into totalitarianism, I’m not sure what the best way to minimise the problem is.
