So, things don’t ultimately go as plan when the tradition first practices in a remote town. That happens while the Purge advertises as a way to lower the crime rate and escape human aggression. The New Founding Fathers of America surprises to see many using it as an outlet for violence.

But, the military takes things into its own hands, revealing a much darker purpose behind this “psychological device” to keep the Purge as its violent outlet. It’s easy to see why it spreads and escalates so quickly because the first Purge is meant to only be an experiment. As you know the official synopsis states- “the corruption will explode from the trial-city borders and increase across the nation when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized.” This is because the NFFA seem to be using the Purge as a means of what appears to be legal genocide.
