Any ideas for how to counter mob mentality?

Or how to break brainwashing?

No, I mean to cause people who are already in a mob to think for themselves instead of just following.

Is mob mentality just an unavoidable consequence of free speech?

You wake up from a deep sleep and realise that most things you were taught as a child were bold face lies.
When you get over being pissed off you realise you can never go back to sleep.

I think the best way to get people to rethink their values is to live your own. I've never been very influenced by anybody trying to get me to change my mind, it's really the ones who are just happily living their lives, paying attention to what truly matters to them.

If you become an individual you hold the power to inspire.

What you are talking about now is merely becoming a dictator where you impose your view and beliefs on others.
By becoming an individual, the ones that can take in the information will come to you for it. The rest is not of your concern nor your responsibility to control.

No, that's definitely not my intention.

I don't want to lead anyone. I just want to know if there is a way to motivate people to think instead of just blindly going along, especially if what they are going along with goes against their own stated morality or values.

Yes, by becoming an individual.

You wont even have to speak. Just by walking through a group of people your influence will start the process.

Tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon.. or just remove oneself from associating with the 'mob' and do your own thing.
