5. The Large, Exceptional Event Shocks, Sir

The day by day, one or two, business as usual does not, even if its cumulative total is greater.

People en masse are moved by emotion, not reason, and so an event that shocks will have effect. This one has had a great effect on the public mood. This effect is enhanced by the repellent character of the persons denouncing this change in public mood wrought by this shocking event.
