Infiltrators abound even acting as provocateurs or antagonists-many escalating many peaceful protests into violence-do not be baited-it is EXACTLY WHAT WILL MAKE THEIR TOTAL CONTROL EASIER Quoting: ShadowDancer
I read en excellent metaphor some time ago.
It's like a steaming kettle. The fire is on, and humanity has been carefully cooked up. But since there's only so much space in the cattle, some of the steam must be let out. Otherwise, the whole thing would explode right in the cook's face.
In other words, public protests are allowed simply to let people take out their steam. They are completely useless waste of energy, and will never change anything. What people should be doing instead, is silently preparing for the moment of explosion. It's become inevitable now, because the cook is left with no more time to properly prepare the meal. He's been forced into overheating the kettle, and public protests are not releasing enough steam anymore.
The kettle will explode, and the cook is locked up in the kitchen with no way out in sight. He doesn't control the fire anymore, and even if he wanted, he couldn't cool things down. He can only try to add some special ingredients to the kettle, in a futile attempt to slow reaction down. That's where the whole chipping business comes into play.
Chipping and mind-controlling population is a forced move, the cook's last line of defense. If cook had any conscience (or consciousness), he'd actually wish that none of this ever happened.
But he has neither, and even after he's fully inflamed in the kitchen fire, he'll still believe that he is preparing the best meal ever. It's his nature, it's how you can recognize him, and it makes this whole job a hell lot easier (forgive my pun).
