Those who embrace the basic tenets of postmodernism possess a desire to both reject and accept logic at the same time. This blatant in-your-face contradiction and pretense is what makes postmodernism so confounding to understand, but also what makes it psychologically attractive to so many.

Postmodernism posits as a basic premise the rejection of reason as a Western superstition. It does not demonstrate that reason is akin to superstition, for the practical reason that an argument requires evidence or proof, and evidence and proof require an objective reality to establish evidential facts acquired from the foundational sensory evidence that forms the building blocks for the creation of higher-level concepts.

The defining feature of postmodernism and its variants is a psycho-epistemological requirement to short-circuit the mind by both accepting and rejecting logic simultaneously.

Mises held that the virtue of economics was its particular capability in providing insight into the link between human values, human action and desired outcomes. He advocated for a distinct economic way of thinking as a valid and necessary extension of logic, and therefore easily available to everybody.

An irony of launching ourselves into actions to remove obstacles to our well-being is that often the decisions and actions we take actually lead us in the opposite direction.
