It is said that no one source started the riot. It was a spontaneous action taken by those in the crowd. But this is not true, there was an instigator. And the riot did serve a purpose – a purpose hidden from everyone in the crowd. A purpose that only a few would ever know about. Though some of the more suspicious ones may ‘theorise’ but they were only good for a laugh. The crowd had developed as planned, it was too easy to rile common people, and it was easier still to insight them to violence once they were all collected in a crowd. Happily, things would turn ugly and the media would whip themselves into a frenzy of frothy mouths and flickering fingers on keyboards.
And while everyone was looking and commenting on the horrors, ‘they’ would be working in the background on their various projects. Content in the knowledge that if the current attraction were to fade, there would be many more instances that could be… tweaked to suit their purpose. They were old hands at this, long years of practice. Controlling the masses is such a subtle art.
