Hayeks observations regarding spontaneous order are interesting and helpful as a descriptive matter, but without something more they provide an insufficient basis for a critique of intentional planning. Criticizing efforts at constructivist rationalism simply on the grounds that they interfere with the spontaneous generation of social institutions is as nonsensical as telling a lion not to eat an antelope because doing so would be bad for evolution.
