no risks = no capitalism => the present corpocratic form of totalitarianism relies on the popular delusion that it is still capitalism (hence also a bureaucracy engaged in planned capitalism preaching the perfectability of the market system and continuing to insist that markets can be made and must be made more efficient, whether they are in education or telecommunications or the manufacture of building products)

… there is no deep epistemological chasm separating socialism (or at least social democracy) from liberalism. Both, however, are quite distinct from a public policy based obsessively upon mathematically calculated planning devices. The latter justify themselves to the extent that they can claim perfect or near-perfect knowledge of future outcomes (not to mention present information). Since neither present nor future information – whether about economics or anything else – is ever vouchsafed us in perfect form, planning is inherently delusory, and the more all-embracing the plan, the more delusory its claims (much the same can be, but rarely is, said of the notion of perfect or efficient markets).
