The analysis doesn't have to take the 'act' into count, at no time
have we appended "with agression" to the definition of "centralised."

Many acts of "acceptance" and "supression" would be commited by either
a Nazi dictator or a supplier. I'm sure the average CEO takes many
decisions that could be considered to "supress control of the many"
and I'm sure Hitler made many changes to his plans due to the will of
the people.
