People become crowds because they haven't became individuals. Individuals form groups that are connected by relationships and goals, not crowds that break on rocks like waves.
People don't want to get inconvinienced because they don't realize what they are missing. Revolutions don't come when the elite goes beyond the "bread and circus" thresshold, simply because there is no such thresshold. People have this uncunny ability to lower their expecations about themselves and life until there's nothing left in them. Look at North Corea, at the USSR, and your local prison.
No, a revolution takes place when someone makes them realize what they're missing. When they see this obvious, yet at the same time elusive fact: There is more than this. We are more than what we think we are. We are capable of more.
