I'm not the only one who likes to be careful about how the word "society" is used. Here is the way Don Boudreaux puts it:
"There is much more myth than reality in the notion of a people's will. I have a will. You have a will. George Bush has a will, as do Howard Dean and Howard Stern. Society has no will. To suppose that it does is grossly inappropriate anthropomorphism."
