So, how do you get people to wake up with everything that his happening?
To suddenly see the corruption & how pervasive it, while not triggering people to defend the guilty?
You make it about celebrity so everyone notices it.
You make it about something many can relate to.
Then you let it grow outward after everyone is aware of it. Everyone is offended by it then you reveal the deeper corruption while folks are assembling their pitchforks & torches!
