Swarming Youths is a technique to focus the power of a group, especially young people/students, to obtain propaganda impact and eventually political impact. 'Swarming' refers to notion in Complexity theory that has been applied to military and propaganda tactics/strategy. Complexity theory indicates that a large number of agents operating with simple rules and reactions can yield highly complex/effective behavior. Researchers of mass psychology and this field of mathematics have studied how to implement simple rules and communication devices to enable a relative small group to obtain a concentrated impact. There is a body of research in this area in the military arena, but recently most of the research has focused on organizing civic groups to obtain a concentrated propaganda and political impact. These techniques have applied by the CIA/NED and its affiliated organizations in Eastern Europe/former Soviet Union, Lebanon, Venezuela. It is likely a technique that is gaining popularity.
