Well regulated control.

I see where this is going, Burk is the culprit!

Quite easily, actually. Assimilation and elimination of those who won't be assimilated. Considering they're good at shutting down communication, seems reasonably doable.

Seriously, when are we gonna officially rename this the Pablo arc and replace the redundant Burk icon? :p

@SilentWranger That answer's a bit of a catch-22 — they maintain power because of the power that they need that power to maintain, but it still leaves a chicken-and-egg question and thus doesn't satisfy.

A better answer is that people *do* know they're in power, just not the true nature of that power. As if these shadowy figures have been in the public eye all along, making no secret of their control over society.

"Grab power" and "Maintain power" are two different objectives with different methodologies. The latter one assumes that you indeed already have power. You perfectly can gain power with relatively legitimate means, and then resort to mob-like activities to maintain it.
