"Shouldn't you clean up the last one before you move on to starting the next?'

"If my goal was ink on dead trees, I suppose."

"What is your goal with these entries then?"

"I refer you to my earlier comments in the log. Each time someone like yourself asks a question or makes a comment, it has the potential to morph the aggregate meaning of the now two year old effort."

Technical people would refer to it as the schema for interpretation. A frame of reference constrains discussion, hopefully in a way that enhances its value. Designed to achieve a limited diversity of outcomes may or may not serve a manipulative agenda, though. Dynamic content often requires a flexible scope. Such is the case here.

If the goal is to subordinate the illusion of democracy to a largely hidden agenda, the best place to start is a cleverly-designed rigid frame. Both the publishing and broadcasting paradigms are a natural fit for a one to many control structure.

Thwarting modern manipulation requires updated skills. Fortunately, they are easy and inexpensive to acquire due to economies of scale. This is so because the corrupted gatekeepers have, in large part, been circumvented.
