Wood and Flinders posit that intentionality and motivation
are critical sites of analysis when determining whether an act is, or should
be made out to be, political or apolitical. I agree with this assertion—both
the intention behind an actor’s act, for example, what motivates the action,
must be taken into consideration before such classifications are made. Yet,
intentionality and motivation are more complicated and problematic than
the authors make them out to be—especially online.
