The argument stases analysis in the Taliban messaging case study is a good example of a conceptual starting place for thinking through ends and means in persuasion.
The upshot of this is that drives are involved (in Dionysian fashion) with both generative stases and their destruction (something of which the Freudian "death drive" is exemplary), and in so far as Kristeva theorises this process as occurring within the "space" of the semiotic chora, it means that it "is no more than the place where the subject is both generated and negated", where its "unity succumbs before the process of charges and stases" by which it is produced.
