From a thematic/lore/story perspective, why do bad things that make it to The Root increase threat? Why do those bad things just disappear at that point? Just curious.

That's a thought I had. That bad things roll up the beanstalk and become someone else's problem and as it threatens the main access to space, alarms the feds.

You are a super rich owner of a mega company that runs New Angeles. The root is where you, your families and your board exist. Riots there might just overthrow the government.

I was under the impression that Threat is the federal government collecting excuses to come in and take over, but I suppose it could also express flagging CEO confidence in their ability to manage NA without government interference.

The Root is absolutely critical to the global economy. A threat to the Root spilling over from a poorly managed city is the perfect excuse for the government to come in and impose order.

Well it is obviously the root of the beanstalk as that exists in Android: The Board Game and Android: Netrunner (and probably the spin-off novels).

But I didn't get the theme either.
