I tend to imagine the most interesting story that could be told, and for me that would be an exploration on subjective reality. That would certainly sit well with Spencer's political analogies so far, but this is comics, he isn't constrained by having to stick to the realities of "alternative facts" and "news manipulation" to tell his story, he can go full-on competing realities and do the Borges thing. He can have a story about one man slowly bringing his own world view into physical reality, not just a political one. The analogy about the dangers of trusting a strong leader, and the various apparatus of power becoming subsumed under a single banner would be very well served by a genre story about the nature of reality being changed by that leader.
If Steve had some power over the narrative it would explain the sudden reversal of his mother, and the way he was swayed by a more pure ideological concept when he was considering running away. It's as if Steve began to reject the story but the end point was too fixed so he had to come up with his own version.
Oh, and there is a very clear analogy for the state cyber hacker going rogue developing too. Politics is clearly fertile ground for genre inspiration.

"Messing with his mind" and mind control are two different things. In real life you can mess with someone's head through suggestions, false information, and so on and yet they can still make their own decisions. They aren't being controlled.
This article lost all credibility with me the moment they called Sam Wilson the first mainstream African American superhero.
