RE: Tragedy of the Commons and Potato Chips
The solution is private property where everyone is allotted a specific amount of chips, no fighting ensues.
I've seen people turn this argument so badly. They'd say that the government should allot the chips, because if not, Tragedy of the commons blabla. Like what the heck... For instance, in an interview with @adamkokesh there was this socialist politician or activist (can't really remember) who used the tragedy of the commons in favor of her argument.
