9. What of the commons?

Appreciation of what is shared in common can be the reference for any consideration of obligations and responsibilities associated with ownership, possession or control. Aspirations for rent-seeking and ownership-exploitation are commonplace in many parts of the world; what is the understanding that can lead to its moderation or restraint? Our humanity is the prime example of global commons. Let us work towards unity, inclusiveness, love and compassion. Let us support this through our understanding of Natural Law, our acknowledging the wisdom of the ages, our choice of good company today and our efforts to serve others.
