I am less interested in epistemology here than actual experience.  When I watch TV, this monkey is mostly had by the thoughts of others - other people's lives. When I watch commercials, especially those for political figures, when I watch the news of politicians doing what they do, I am mostly had by the thoughts of their points of view which may include a polaric response. An idea which stirs me to vote or some other kind of action seems to have this monkey rather than the other way around.

Yeah it certainly seems to work that way
