Tragedy of the Commons Issues LO26921

Replying to LO26919 --


Thank you all for your informative responses to my query. Given the
multitude of cases in the wild which have nothing at all to do with human
interference, as well as the seemingly natural aspect of the cases cited,
I guess I have to wonder now, why do we call it a 'tragedy' at all?
Where's the tragedy in it and what makes it so? Tragedy for whom? Us?
