Mob Rule?

Increasingly, digital technologies make it effortless for individuals to have their say (e.g. Govt. e-petitions) and 'political' issues become 'popular' issues as they enter mainstream media.

In this context, some alarming questions in relation to "mob-rule" kept re-surfacing in different forms at BarCamp Liverpool - one skeptical Liverpool Socialist phrased it this way:

"What if the wrong people have the wrong revolution?"

I'd like to pose another question in response:
"Who are the wrong people and what is the wrong revolution?"
