Mob Mentality

Working with mesivta kids, you learn a lot.
At breakfast, for example, when somebody gets into an argument with Aviva, the cook, somebody will start hooting and making loud noises. All the kids will then start hooting and shouting, and get into this mob mentality.
Like seriously, they will all go nuts, loving the fact that not one kid in particular can get in trouble.

It makes me not doubt anymore the story in Lord of the Flies, (by william golding, I believe.)
