The Libertarian asks, “What's the difference between Micro and Macro?”
An honest and accurate if somewhat simplistic answer is: “Micro is about individual behavior and is largely unpredictable. Macro is about collective phenomena that are predicted statistically with great precision.”
Lib is horrified by the word collective. “I reject that answer. Statistics are bullshit!
“Are you indoctrinated so deeply that I've touched the amygdalae? Do you flee from and fight the truth at once?”
Conditioned thought-emotion responses to words and concepts are frequent in my experience dating back more than 50 years. The programmed American [most Americans] will not think about anything that may be construed to challenge the rule of the rich or their right to dominate our lives for their own well being. We don't often embrace the thought that they prosper by hard work of others in the community that they manage indirectly through their corporate simulacra. We're programmed to believe their own hard work and ingenuity is responsible for all the wealth they own or control, though it would be physically impossible for an individual to make so much. The thought that they are a danger to the community of the Human Race that creates their wealth is not even permitted among the ruling class themselves.
