The State and its security forces are responsible for the maintenance of public order and safety. Social approval of their actions is essential to the preservation of their governance. Recent demostrations and protests have become the common ground for institutional power and violence. Mechanisms of social control are put in place to legitimise authoritarianism. Tauromaquia penetrates these totalitarian codes, parallel to the approach of activist hackers, shining a light upon the actions and deficiencies of the State.
