Pluralistic: AI is a WMD (09 May 2024) – Pluralistic: Daily links from Cory Doctorow:

Fun fact: “The Tragedy Of the Commons” is a hoax created by the white nationalist Garrett Hardin to justify stealing land from colonized people and moving it from collective ownership, “rescuing” it from the inevitable tragedy by putting it in the hands of a private owner, who will care for it properly, thanks to “rational self-interest”

I did not know this.
