The Silent – An extremist religious sect that is devoted in finding balance in all things, embracing near nihilistic internalized contemplation, and seeking the active destruction of exterior stimuli that manipulate and control the “subconscious of humanity.” As can be guessed, the Silent are one of the least-liked organizations in the world in the eyes of most Mega-Corporations. If not undermining mass media, performing industrial terrorism, or even performing assassinations to “free the collective mind of the masses,” this organization has taken a very unnatural stance against mass media-controlled sources.
