THE PERPETUALLY AGGRIEVED ARE BORING

Even when they're channelling their inner Wordsworth.
After returning to our land-based life in Mexico, my son is slowly regaining his self. He is still a teenager concerned with looks, but he no longer cares about brands. The electronic gadget that he so longed to buy with his savings now seem less important and has been superseded by a wish to save up to buy a small piece of land.
Yes, so his mother can sic Henry George on him?  And perhaps some Hayek?  The expression "man-made" gives too much agency to individuals and too little to interactions and emergent order.
