This could really go in either random thought or rant but: I'm getting exhausted by people who seem educated (educated here meaning induced by any external factors rather than a formal body of typical education)to find agendas and want to foster that in others.
It's exhausting because of the tautological way in which it manifests. A theory of motivation is created and then that theory sounds convincing, it isn't tested or measured up to action, and then people run with it; a particular form of rumour centred on motivation. And then every bit of action or behaviour is perceived without balance and simply becomes part of the tapestry, absorbed into the framework.
Essentially it's true merely by being appealing and confirming biases. The problem is that real agendas with dangerous outcomes become muddied among these untested one's.
So those with harmful motivations slip by, as the scapegoats get whipped by the crowd.
People are often merely being and you can analyse and explain to someone their unconscious and unseen motivators. But that cannot be an agenda, which relies upon a supposedly conscious intention. Perhaps a half conscious agenda, hidden by emotional trauma or intensity, but that suggests a problem beyond our appeals to rationality.
Unless of course you hammer it into them with an emotionally - driven rhetoric.
But I'm sure there are no such outlets with extensive influence and the resources to constantly bombard people's 'being' into an agenda.... is there?'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe. It is deeply enmeshed with the brain mechanisms that automatically promote action readiness' - Jaak Panksepp

I would like to join Team Mystic but they seem to be the bandwagon team.
