America. Land of Conformity and Home of the Risk Averse

Great piece by Edward Luce, a liberal journalist, in the FT
Compared with many democracies, America no longer feels unusually free. Psychiatrists keep turning up new forms of "dysregulated" behaviour. Legislators keep drafting regulations to address them. People's tolerance of disorder is falling, as is their resilience to shock. Feeling unusually human today? There is a pill for that. There might even be a law against it.
