Great diary, MfM. You've got a lot down here, it all makes sense, and it's exactly what I think.

What astounds me is how potent the influence of this tacky nonsense about rational individual choice and maximum utility has been for two centuries now. Life is infinitely more complex. And less "free" (in the sense "liberty"). But there perhaps lies the appeal - simple faith de-stresses and fills with hope a situation that, for most people, would give rise to anxiety and depression if recognized for what it is.
