It's a program after all. It seeks just that, the self-destruction of the subject. Just look at youtube to see how many people end up deteriorating because of the vegan diet.
Now the argument I shared earlier has a point. I had said that it would cause a BSOD in their minds:
Ah-hah! I didn't recognize the acronym BSOD but the concept is certainly familiar. Pic related.
I suspect all of the programs installed by STS contain logical flaws that can be exploited in this fashion. e.g. with the Branch Covidians, pointing out that the lockdown will kill more (healthy) people than the virus. Since STS manipulation is based on lies and distorted truths, there is always broken logic somewhere in the program which, if the programee can be made to see it, causes a Does Not Compute error.
Of course in most cases this just results in angry NPC noises.
