Ah gotcha. Hypothetically of course, and I should have clarified "iPwn jumped up to help [put the mutiny down]"
In the sense that eventually it would seem that there always seems to be a group of people who conspire to gain control of the boat for their own intent.
I'm sure through your years of experience on this planet (and I've noticed in a few posts), you've seen that you can't please everyone. So in this analogy let's pretend a vote was cast and iPwn was named captain. Well, celegorm and lowndsey have been awfully silent in this entire exchange. Come to find out they freaking hate captain iPwn and where he is steering the ship. Over the course of the next few weeks, they subtly influence smart_guy, bk_123, janet_h, root, and even my former rowing mate celery to plot a mutiny for various reason. Now again, each of the members all have their reasons.
smart_guy was told iPwn was going to make everyone wear pink dresses, Smart_guy hates dresses.
bk_123 was told iPwn planned to implement metered downloads and he REALLY likes watching netflix after nightly deck swabs.
janet_h was told iPwn is going to burn the ship as soon as it reaches an island and she plans to continue on to a different destination.
root was told iPwn has been taking double rations and felt this was highly unfair.
celery was told that iPwn has been putting additives in the whiskey to dilute it, and keeping the good whiskey for himself.
Only celegorm and lowndsey are the keepers of the true agenda once the mutiny succeeds, if it does, but the stage is set. They learned each persons likes/dislikes and played to them to form a bond and then took advantage of that.
Only after the trap has been sprung and iPwn is tossed overboard, the democracy crumbled, a faux one setup in it's stead, are celegorm and lowndsey able to carry out their true intent. It gets more interesting too. Let's say these two made a pact that celegorm was to get elected captain but they would keep the same plan. Lowndsey doesn't trust celegorm anymore, and celegorm has a plan to get rid of lowndsey this whole time. So after the mutiny, lowndsey attempts to kill celegorm but it fails, so then he spills the beans about the plot exposing their entire plan from the start!
The boat is rocked by this confession. Sadly, most don't even believe what they just heard and toss lowndsey overboard with iPwn.
I feel like I'm writing an after action report for many countries' history....
