Keep seeing canadians going 'rule of law' or indigenous tweep referencing them doing it and, like
if the canadians cared about rule of law they wouldn't be claiming land that wasn't theirs???

@owen this is one of my favourite graphs, about the appearance of empiricism and experimental terminology in published economics papers. The idea that economics as a field should have a basis in empirical evidence has not been around as long as The Simpsons.
@owen This is true. It's also true that TotC a real phenomenon in a society that has primarily individualist values (which we are in, for better or worse). So there is value in studying it, but absolutely important to be aware of the history.

Lloyd's writings remain influential in economics studies today, but the term really took off after a Canadian, H. Scott Gordon, adapted it to justify taking fisheries from Canadian first nations.
Gordon died last year.
I guess my point is: however you “do Christmas” is valid. Even if you don’t, or if you just want to show up.
