I know you explained your use of the word "seed"; I just warned of the dangers of its use being easily suited to promoting a particular agenda as a fait acompli.

I read somewhere that the Nazi elites took as a given that the notion "these people must be ethnically cleansed (i.e, killed)" is built in to their understanding of "Jew". Similarly today, believers in psychiatry have tended to take as a given that built into the very idea of "schizophrenic" for example, is the idea of "these people must be dealt with in certain ways".

I did not disregard your "seed" explanation; I just warned of its capacity to promote certain agendas.

Yes, ideally no one coerces anyone else.

I do not imply that you are involved with "drapetomania" etc. Is not the use of "seed" an appeal to emotion?

Bad grammar?
