It is fascinating and a bit scary to see what people will do in the company of an angry mob. With inhibition down and the cover of being semi-anonymous people will do things they would never do acting on their own. But I don't think this is what the phrase "safety in numbers" is supposed to mean. And it doesn't.
We live our lives surrounded by a crowd, it is called our community, or our society, and if we just copy what everyone else is doing, it does not guarantee a good outcome. To get all that God offers, we need to give up copying others, and get some good directions. Time to follow the Leader.
