ecstasy of crowds

Classically, there are three ways in which humans try to find transcendence
--religious meaning--apart from God as revealed through the cross of Jesus: 
   through the ecstasy of alcohol and drugs, 
   through the ecstasy of recreational sex, 
   through the ecstasy of crowds.
                    Church leaders frequently warn against the drugs and the sex,                     
                                      but at least, in America,
                                                                        almost never against the crowds.”
