In a way, a good example analogy of a Commodity Fettishism:
The anxiety produced due to the natural-rational impingement upon ones view freedom causes a kind of myopia, perhaps like an addiction, where the criteria informing the choice function is changed. The “rational choice” is now understood to be in line with a reality that, for all purposes by then, has disappeared, replaced by the colors and shapes of anxiety.
Like addiction commandeers the choice function because the choice is always made for the “rational choice” of the need for the substance. As though one is going to die without it.x
