Garrett Hardin on Social Goods - Dictionary of Arguments

Shirky I 51
Social goods/Commons/Garrett Hardin/Shirky: Hardin used the term "The Tragedy of the Commons" (1) (The Tragedy of the Commons) for the problem that when it comes to the use of common goods such as fish stocks or pastureland, those who miss out and wait until it is their turn and therefore try to get a bigger share for themselves. This leads to overfishing of fish stocks, for example. One reason for antisocial behaviour is that sheep "do not drive themselves to the market". ((s) An added value must therefore be generated).
Shirky I 53
In connection with the tragedy of the common land, there is the fact that no one pays taxes voluntarily.
