Hayek in Scandinavia

Bjorn Staerk Blog has the latest post in his continuing series on F.A. Hayek’s The Constitution of Liberty.  Bjorn reflects on what I think is the most difficult aspect of Hayek’s thought:  the importance he places on history and tradition as a storehouse of problems successfully solved, a kind of moral and political laboratory.  In this view Hayek is largely correct, of course.  But any time the status quo – the past, tradition, what is – is enshrined, it becomes unclear when we can demand what ought to be.  Won’t say more on the matter here:  those interested, look up my comment in Bjorn’s blog.
