Greed mobs are growing, but we rarely hear about them. Only a few suffer. They are our Artists. They are the people who entertain us. They are people who have succeeded. They cry out for protection and understanding, but are met ridicule and scorn.
Those who are threatened take the matter seriously. They have increased personal security measures. They recognize that - at times - their lives, and those of their immediate family, are in danger. Anyone who has personally experienced a mob knows how dangerous they can be. Add instigation and a criminal element to the mix, they quickly become deadly.
People are quick to propose various solutions and non-lethal measures that can be taken to disperse mobs. What they fail to realize is that once a mob turns, it cannot be controlled.
The best defence from a mob? Prevent it from arising to begin with. Find the root cause and address it.
