Why Gangs?

We identified ten gangs that exhibit a particular style of power from dominating 'leaders' to 'enforcers' to 'helpers' maintaining the status quo.

The 10 Gangs helped us clarify individual behaviours, but they are not prescriptive, as privilege and power are opportunistic, competitive and highly adaptable.

Like bullying in our societies, these violent behaviours are interconnected, and can super-charge an individuals power. Competitors can use the gangs to recognize roles that might serve their agenda, especially useful when forming lobby groups.
