Among some tribes of Native American cultures, they not
only shared common property to the last morsel of food
taken in the hunt, but they considered the greatest among
them, was the one who GAVE the most in every sense of the
word, from the protecting of the young, aged, and infirm,
to the act of "gifting" (Potlaching) wherein the entire
premise was the redistribution of possessions or wealth.
Within tribes, everything revolves around the Honor System
You talk about "Commons"?!?
The Native Americans had absolutely no concept of "Fences"
...until we brought that particular 'snake into the garden'.
We hopped off the boat and said, "Mind if we live here?"
they said, "Sure. Why Not?"
They migrated to the next seasonal
campsite... and when
they returned the following year, we claimed that we were
justified in killing them for stepping foot on "OUR PROPERTY"
yar, Michelle, let's hear it for"OUR FOREFATHERS"
