me trying to understand this:
- "The entire intellectual purport of any symbol"
Intellectuals believe _ but the writer disagrees?

- what is a general mode? Normal Behavior?

"conditionally upon all the possible different circumstances and desires, would ensue upon the acceptance of the symbol."
I think I need context for what this symbol is in order to make sense of this
what I'm getting so far is:
"Intellectuals falsely see it as a given that ____ symbol represents ___ behavior that most people will consider normal"
or
"intellectuals falsely claim that symbols are a product of normal behaviors"
Geroge Orwell would have loved reading this
