 What’s fascinating about these Choice Theories I’m looking at right now is that I’m finding them in the international politics zone.
I’m used to seeing this kind of thing in articles about therapy.
Now I’m at Appraisal Theory which is a concept whose name I’d been looking for:
“our appraisal of a situation causes an emotional, or affective, response that is going to be based on that appraisal”

“To simplify Lazarus’s theory and emphasize his stress on cognition, as you are experiencing an event, your thought must precede the arousal and emotion (which happen simultaneously).[11] For example: You are about to give a speech in front of 50 of your peers. First, you think: “I’ve never spoken in front of such a big crowd. I’m going to make a fool of myself.” Then, Your mouth goes dry, your heart beat quickens, your palms sweat, and your legs begin to shake and at the same time you experience fear”

Osho Rajneesh, whose English writings I’ve enjoyed in the past (devoured them even) had a religious compound in the USA in the early 1980s.
I didn’t know about any of it until after the bioterror attack in 1985 which would’ve made me about 13 years old, so it stayed in my memory.
Apparently the people he had running the compound were just bad people, willing to do anything for political power extending beyond the compound into regular politics. {and once you’re in government politics, you have access to free money – etc etc)

 Strange Man Osho Rajneesh, whose English writings I’ve enjoyed in the past (devoured them even) had a religious compound in the USA in the early 1980s.

I didn’t know about any of it until after the bioterror attack in 1984-5 which would’ve made me about 12-3 years old, so it stayed in my memory.

It fixed in my memory the danger of people wanting political power and also fixed in my memory the danger of cult thinking.
