  • The Tragedy of the Commons
  • A classic 1968 writeup by Garrett Hardin in Science Magazine that refreshes millennium(s) old knowledge about the relationships between an individuals decision making and his attitude towards social good. The core idea behind his thesis can be summarized in a sentence from the writeup: Ruin is the destination toward which all men rush, each pursuing his own best interest in a society that believes in the freedom of the commons. Freedom in a commons brings ruin to all.....The individual benefits as an individual from his ability to deny the truth even though society as a whole, of which he is a part, suffers. This idea can explain a lot of the problems of our age esp. of Global Warming, Poverty, Over Population, Economic Crisis, Health Reforms and Wars.
