"The cod fishery, the herring fishery, the pilchard fishery, the mackerel fishery, and probably all the great sea fisheries, are INEXHAUSTIBLE; that is to say, that nothing we do seriously affects the number of fish"

Thomas Huxley - Darwin's Bulldog (1883)


"As a rational being, each herdsman seeks to maximize his gain. The rational herdsman concludes that the only sensible course for him to pursue is to add another animal to his herd. And abother; and another....But this is the conclusion reached by each and every rational herdsman sharing a commons. Therin is the tragedy. Each man is locked into a system that compels him to increase his herd without limit - in a world that is limited. 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 common brings ruin to us all."

Garrett Hardin - The Tragedy of the Commons (1968)
