The average person is unaware that many of the companies he purchases goods from are linked to crime; to him, they are just the guys that make soda/canned goods/t-shirts/record players etc and show a fancy logo or two in their store. Additionally, while the police might be aware of criminal gangs or organized crime groups operating in an area, they won't know that these groups are getting their marching orders from a larger organisation. Sprawls are strange trends in recent city projects, the neo-classical fashion and architecture is just a fad, etc. As far as the public is concerned, the Syndicate create jobs and merely have a strange taste for naming stuff with the morally wrong things usually swept under the carpet. ** It's not that these things are ''hidden,'' but just that the average person doesn't care enough to find out, allowing the Syndicate to fly comfortably under the radar. ** For that matter, most people in the Sprawls and workers in the various companies haven't really got a grasp on the whole organisation. * As a result, the actions of the Syndicate, even if they are planned at the top, appear to outsiders as a series of unconnected events; a crime wave here, a new company opening shop there (''"Oh hey more jobs from the Syndis..."'') , a lot of property being bought up by several companies... next thing they know, they are working in a factory stamping out cheap guns for warlords involved in the drug trade and they aren't any the wiser. The Syndicate is insidious because most of the people contributing are only vaguely aware that there is anything wrong; people more willing to turn a blind eye than others tend to advance up the ranks. * To the Board of Classics and Romulus, the Syndicate as it is now is a means to an end; concepts like short-term profits and shareholders are not what motivate them. Rather, they are primarily interested in the creation of the Sprawls and the dependence of people on the services and goods of the Syndicate.
