“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always.”
I realize that some people might dispute this claim, or have objections as to length of time it takes for a tyrant to fall. For the sake of argument, I wish to accept this statement as true. I wish to offer a reason as to why tyrants fall.
Why do tyrants fall? They rely on centralized intelligence
No, what they call knowledge has nothing to do with the knowledge in Steps to Knowledge. What they call knowledge could also be called data or information. You don’t have to be a scholar to understand Hayek’s 1945 paper “The Use of Knowledge in Society.” The barbed point of this paper is that economic activity managed by distributed intelligence does a better job than centrally managed economic activity because it does a better job of mobilizing the knowledge relevant to the decisions that need to be made.
Northwestern University economist Lynne Kiesling explains why this is a big deal:
