The Epop is expected to Make Things Happen, to Rule, to Fuck Around. The Hierarchy is expected to toe the line, and power to flow from Higher Numbers to Lower Numbers, until those who Bust are at the bottom, below even the Rabble.
The Rabble are expected to disobey, just hoping not to piss off the Epop enough to fire them out of the The Disorder entirely. It would, of course, be sterile without them.

My adepts stand upright; their head above the heavens, their feet below the hells.
Aleister Crowley, Liber צ (Tzaddi) vel Hamus Hermeticus sub figurâ XC
Kalle was burdened with an intense pain located about a hand’s breadth below his right collar bone. No, there was no tumor or anything of the sort there, he had had it checked, but it was exactly there that it started to hurt whenever life got to him. A black heart pumping despair into his body.
