Bunch of crap.  Have you turned on your TV recently?  Everything is
already in place and working.  One could drug a crowd nine ways from
Sunday and elicit any behavior desired.  In any case, one need only
threaten to cut off their Welfare (e.g., Los Angeles' Rodney King
riots:  Everything went dead quiet on Welfare Friday - the crowd was
lined up for two blocks to get their checks.)

I bid you remember the French sub-sonic cannon that elicited resonant
intestinal irritation and caused uncontrolled proximate colonic
voiding.  The first time it was tested all the cops and observers pooped
their trousers.  There was no second test.
