common ground

This video is a bit wordy - too much reading for a video IMHO - but I think Friday of stimulus-budget-week might be a good day to be thinking about the Commons. Not just the House of Commons.

"In a just world, the idea of wealth—be it money derived from the work of human hands, the resources and natural splendor of the planet itself—and the knowledge handed down through generations belongs to all of us. But in our decidedly unjust and imperfect world, our collective wealth is increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few. There is be a better way—the notion of the commons—common land, resources, knowledge—is a common-sense way to share our natural, cultural, intellectual riches."
