46. It depends on what you see as useful.
The fight for civil rights in the 60's was useful, if inconvenient for some. The Stonewall riots were useful. The Boston Tea Party was useful. The French Revolution was useful. These fights all had a mob mentality but they ended up galvanizing the people into a focused group determined to fight for their rights.

This unorganized outrage just may be the first salvo in what becomes an organized effort. We'll just have to see.
