Comment on "My Data Says You Like Beautiful Things"

Likewise, Henry Ford proclaimed that if he had asked people what they wanted they would have told him they wanted a faster horse.

While reading this the idea of a mob mentality crept into my mind. Rarely in those situations do good outcomes occur, yet I feel that's what happens when you pour thousands of people down such a limited set of paths. You create mobs of relatively weak values because they can only react to whats directly in front of them, and can't extract themselves from the situation and look at the bigger picture. Nor can a single person's voice be heard if they do. The overwhelming majority drowns out the sensical voice.
