What started back then was a concept of moral economy—economic life6 was starting to be held accountable to a moral standard, a concept that continued to evolve (Randall, 2000). With the industrial revolution came the realization that working people collectively were not getting fair treatment; Jasper’s second type of moral consciousness emerged around citizens’ rights. Out of this realization came the labour movement and the use of collective action to get rights for working people. There was also a demand for increasingly inclusive suffrage.

The crowd, in this paradigm is subject to a contagion whereby everyone acts together to do the same thing. They work together in a way such that various functional activities—unfurling banners, chanting, charging a police line, lying down and ‘playing dead’—contribute to the same end. LeBon-inspired discourse about crowds introduced the concept of ‘mob’ for which the concept of mindless action was even stronger. Politically the designation of protest crowds as mobs made up of thoughtless people at the bottom of society was used to discredit the actions of protest crowds (Hayes, 1992).

A contemporary comparison of the language used to talk about large protest groups comes from Naomi Klein: But what are reported as menacing confrontations are often joyous events, as much experiments in alternative ways of organizing societies as criticisms of existing models … These protests—which are actually week-long marathons of intense education on global politics, latenight strategy sessions in six-way simultaneous translation, festivals of music and street theatre—are like stepping into a parallel universe.
