Agency Panic is a phrase coined by Timothy Melley to describe the fear that individuals are being controlled against their wills by all powerful forces. That the forces are seen as 'all powerful' rather than merely powerful suggests paranoid delusion. Agency refers to the ability of individuals or at least their belief in the ability to exercise power.
