** It's also part of the series' overall critique of modern Japanese society: See the page image for {{Kawaisa}}. Possibly related to Sibyl as an extreme nanny-state, with its pacified/easily-amused citizens/children.

* Why wouldn't the Sibyl System seek to exterminate Makishima after finding out he's not on board with being part of the Hive Mind? Wouldn't the risk of revealing the System's true nature outweigh the need to add him to the collective?

** Kasei reaches for the Dominator presumably to paralyze Makishima but he already resists and escapes. There is nothing mentioning that the brain transfer must be voluntary so Makishima's brain is still valuable to Sibyl. Sibyl's revised plan now is possibly to capture Makishima once more and skip negotiation to go straight to extracting his brain. To accomplish this, Akane's Dominator is locked to paralyzer mode to capture Makishima alive. It is easier to shoot Makishima with a Dominator than to find another way to kill him. So Sibyl isn't taking on any additional risk by arranging for a capture instead of extermination.

* The Sibyl System has caused their own society to become completely paranoid about their mental state. With the citizens so shielded and infantilized, even the slightest trauma poses a serious danger to someone's Crime Coefficient. So why in the name of ''actual sanity'' would they design the Dominators to kill people in the most gory, traumatic and visually distressing way possible??

** It was implied Sibyl helped them in secret, as having them come to Japan allowed them to be easily executed and lead Akane on a wild goose chase to see Shinya, [[spoiler:where it would allow Sibyl to have Nicholas Wong kill both of them, tying up two loose ends easily, while they work on their objective of controlling SEAUN and then killing Nicholas. This nearly happens perfectly in Sibyl's favor too.]]

*** What bugs me even more is that - how the hell are Dominators able to judge Sibyl system (a collective mind), even though they could not yet judge Kamui (also a collective mind)? It would make much more sense if Kamui's Dominator didn't recognise Sibyl before it made a decision to accept collective Psycho-Passes, because the situation in which Sibyl can measure ''itself'' but ''not'' Kamui is completely ridiculous.

** Actually, the scary thing is that it ''did'' change its color - [[NiceJobBreakingItHero for the worse]]. In the movie, Sybil is shown to be more manipulative, ruthless and power hungry than ever before AND is better at it! The likely explanation is that, before judging itself, Sybil purged the brains which would increase its crime-coefficient... that is to say, those which were ''not asymptomatic''. In other words, Sybil "fixed" itself to the point that it's now composed entirely or almost-entirely out of the brains of sociopaths, with all that this entails.

*** No one is forced to do everything the Sibyl System tells you to do. In the movie, Akane's friend talks about meeting her new fiance through the system, but they indicate that it's not mandatory. The CommuField celebrities are technically unemployed but they make a living by being popular. The Sibyl System wouldn't tell Spooky Boogie that she should be an anarchistic internet celebrity. That's something she wanted to do on her own.
