Everyone has an Agenda

One interesting piece of philosophy i shared with a random drunk (and embittered) Canadian divorcee when in Thailand was that EVERYONE HAS AN AGENDA. In USA, its seen as everything you do has a reason, and you are looking for a totally selfish angle or an outcome of that - ie you have freinds so you arent lonely, you beleive in God because your scared of dying, get married becuase you want regular sex and your shirts ironed, you drive a porche because you think it will compensate for your small penis etc etc.

So even altruistic or seemingly genuine things are deeply rooted in selfish motives. Only Americans could think of such a cynical thing but it does hold a lot of truth - today, consider what you are doing and have a good think why - Do you have an Agenda? And if not, why not?
