An opportunity for Tragedy

My grand daughter is taking government and economics this semester of high school. What a great combination! And I can't let the chance go by without introducing her to Garrett Hardin. His tragedy of the Commons (https://www.garretthardinsociety.org/articles/art_tragedy_of_the_commons.html) is one of the more important ideas we ever encounter. In it we meet at the intersection of economics, government, and ecology. And at an intersection in life. What do you take away? An idea on how to get ahead? Or a commitment to living with reverence?
