Well, it all depends on 'knowing the mechanics of compliance' - take, for example, this footage of 32 randomly fired off metronomes achieving a marching synchrony. How? Harmonic Resonance and Mechanical Entrainment mostly. Knowing the (in this case subtly-enhanced acceleration) mechanics of compliance: the table is rocking. If you know what socio-political button to push, on a regular basis; you get total and unwitting compliance where none should be possible.
Eventually, all the individuals assume the same Consumerist beat. Geddit?
FREE FUCKING PLANET already!
