How to use "Mob rule" in context?

Mob rule is the rule of a crowd, especially when the crowd is uncontrolled and capable of acting without regard for the law or the norms of civilized behavior. It can also describe the power of the masses to compel or influence a leader, group, or individual to act in a particular way. Mob rule can be effective when the crowd is unified and focused on a common goal, but can be disastrous when the crowd is motivated by anger, hatred, or fear and is not unified or focused.
