Power of masses can be more problematic than government’s cool heads.
If government acts for mass’ feeling, then who knows what the world would be.
Just have a look at some Chinese social media websites one would appreciate how mass feeling can be too emotional and cannot be relied upon to make policies.
One website is: http://www.sina.com.cn/
It has a military section.
