"Also, I believe we are 'socially engineered' from birth, by the Market."

The market is "us", it's not a "thing outside of us."


Agreed, I should have said more correctly, that social engineering is apparent, that's why billions of monetary units have been spent on advertising and deep-psych intrusive sloganeering, cultural stereotyping and wotnot. One of my sick pleasures is heaing an adveriser defending his sickly role as 'consumer informant' when she knows full well that she's acting on behalf of a corporation that wants o shift as many units as possible, and the cost of advertising psychology and space has to be met. Tobbacco companies come to mind.
