Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Systems of social organization that are "autonomous, self-regulating" have eliminated the humans---and are prima facie dehumanized- and dehumanizing.
Yet the whole school of neo-classical economists (and a lot of the classical ones) seem blind to this.
Could it be that their institutions self-select for the bright but gullible authoritarian? I think so.

See Bob Altemeyer.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
