institutions as far back as our history stretches, the idea that Peer to Peer networks will eliminate regular habits of behavior and suddenly people will start making conscious decisions for each and every one of their actions, a la neoclassical fantasy economics, is just an outlandish claim.

..and it's not a claim I'm making.

Possibly.
