Can you by chance pin down your disagreement to a particular axiom? You're modus tollensing where I expected you would modus ponens.

You are looking at the wrong meta level.

When I say "VNM doesn't offer any formulation of rational behavior" I'm not disagreeing with any particular axiom. It's like I'm saying that an orange is not an apple and you respond by asking me what kind of apples I dislike.
