Numbers matter. It is cowed down by the exponential power of the generalized mean. Those who want to rule the world, understand this phenomenon, and exert all effort in controlling the masses. The classes will not be influenced easily, but their power can be nullified by the strength of the average, the common, the median. It is where the obscure become visible, and the brilliant start losing their shine.
