The fact that this nonsense came from a psychoceramic like Ian Cruikshank
should be a clue: it is, of course, nonsense. No Extropian, so far as I
know, has ever said anything of the kind, and I doubt that he can supply
a quote either.

Some of us, namely me, /will/ say that Laissez-Faire is a fine
example of spontaneous order as it relates to economic systems, and
that no other economic system so far discovered comes anywhere
close to being as effective or as moral. But there are plenty of
other examples of spontaneous order in the world.
