Tell me, do you believe Rothbard to have been immune to the subconscious?
Do you believe that the man was capable of creating an economic or political philosophy without allowing his hindbrain to do at least some of the filling in work?
It stands to reason that a man who erroneously believes the common man to be unwilling or incapable of interacting with the intellectual aspects of life, is fundamentally incapable himself of formulating any plan, scheme, or philosophy that will work out in the favour of such a person as he holds such low opinion of. He has fundamentally misunderstood the very people to whom his work applies most strongly.

The subconscious doesn't exist.
That’s like saying aliens don’t exist.
It’s all a matter of interpretation anyway
I’d argue that the “subconscious” is like a sense which we are mostly unaware of whilst being in a conscious state.
Say for example I think to myself “Hello person over there”, and they instantly turn to smile at me very knowingly - what would that suggest about the “subconscious”? Riddle me that.

You are no anarchist. .
In fact every psychotic notion is exactly what keeps us from an anarchic society.
Don't presume to speak for the rest of us
No, it's a matter of a thing either exists or it doesn't.
I'd argue that's a hypothesis and not evidence of the existence of a thing.
That would suggest you're conflating psychic phenomena with the subconscious and proffering hypotheticals as evidence.
Saying that the subconscious does not exist is hypothetical and is not evidence either.

There were 146 deaths by firearm but those stats include suicides.
When you only count the homicides by gun, the total number of deaths in 2011 in the entire UK was 50.
So the population of the UK in 2011 was 63 million and only 50 were killed as the result of a gun.
It kind of puts things in perspective when you break down the stats.
