Feedback from Systemic Distortion

The problem with relying on feedback is that it interprets the event and modifies it into an "abstract" (simplified) form.
Feedback systems are "negative governors" that moderate "positive energy" to attain an equilibrium, but when feedback is distorted, your corrections are distorted.

The key to destabilizing a system is not a direct attack but warping and weakening the means to sustain it.

Warping mediating abstractions (such as values or morals) also works on humans. Our social norms are crowdsourced, distort the norms and the values destabilize society.
