—“@curtdoolittle Sir, do you have a resource that you could direct me towards in which you describe your understanding of the commons? Thank you in advance.”—Prussian Blue Persuasion

Every single thing you pay for by either action, inaction,or forgone opportunity for discount or gain: obeying manners, ethics, morals, laws, norms, traditions, paying taxes, common property in all its forms (territory, resources, infrastructure, buildings, monuments), maintaining your, your neighbor’s, and local and national common property in all its forms, acts of charity (by your own hand and own money), acts of voluntary and military service.

Anything that isn’t privately owned, by individual partnership, or corporation, but creates an asset for the members of the polity.
