Did you know that the concept of the 'tragedy of the commons' was fueled by an ideology?

In Episode #369 of 'Musings', Juan and I discuss: why a recent book review sparked this topic, a human depopulation article with an underlying ideology, Garret Hardin's hypocrisy, whether people under a spell behave differently, using emotions and cherry picking data, why Juan loves the 'Discipline = Freedom' ideology and why we don't talk about wokism/capitalism/communism/environmentalism or really any ism's.

A huge thanks to our supporters of Dave Jones, Petar the Slav, McIntosh and Trevor. It's a handsome group!
