A traditional bone setter is a professional. These are professionals all over the world. You find them in any inaccessible village around the world.
To act on the belief that we possess the knowledge and the power which enable us to shape the processes of society entirely to our liking, knowledge which in fact we do not possess, is likely to make us do much harm.
Friedrich August von Hayek
