Today, I argue that gov-co’s control over economic indicators constitutes evidence of Pavlovian conditioning of the America people.
Let’s begin the argument with Wikipedia’s definition of “Pavlovian conditioning”:
“Classical conditioning (also Pavlovian conditioning or respondent conditioning) is a form of learning in which one stimulus comes to signal the occurrence of a second stimulus. This is often brought about by pairing the two stimuli, as in Pavlov’s classic experiments. Pavlov presented dogs with a ringing bell followed by food. The food elicited salivation, and after repeated bell-food pairings, the bell also caused the dogs to salivate. In this experiment the food is an unconditioned stimulus, salivation is an unconditioned response, the bell is neutral but then becomes a conditioned stimulus, the salivation elicited by the bell is a conditioned response.”
