Thanksgiving is a celebration of capitalism. The first year on Plymouth Rock, the Pilgrims tried socialism. They had a community plot that all would work to produce the food they needed. They barely survived the first year. They starved and many died. The next year, they assigned each family a plot of land to produce and work as they saw fit. The result was an abundance of food and it lead to a celebration we now know as “Thanksgiving”. No wonder liberals hate it.
Summary: The Tragedy of the Commons is an economic theory that describes how people often use natural resources to their advantage without considering the good of a group or society as a whole. When a number of individuals consider only their own welfare in this manner, it leads to negative outcomes for everybody, as the natural resource becomes depleted.
