Uh oh: Name Change?

commoner

From our good friends Hardt & Negri, in Declaration:

“The commoner is a constituent participant, the subjectivity that is foundational and necessary for constituting a democratic society based upon sharing of the common” (p. 105-6).

“The commoner is thus an ordinary person who accomplishes an extraordinary task: opening private property to the access and enjoyment of all; transforming public property controlled by state authority into the common; and in each case discovering mechanisms to manage, develop, and sustain common wealth through democratic participation” (p. 105).

“Becoming-Commoner”?
