The Mob vs the Man

Man, in groups, does not shine.

He gets swept up in righteous anger and giddy joy. He is enthused, and emotional, and easily led. He says things he later claims to regret.

Is man at fault for getting excited? For being judgmental and heated? Is he responsible for his actions?

Do we judge the mob, or do we judge the man?

We see the man only as a part of the mob, but the mob is not the sum of the men.
