I understand the context in which you're writing and the "meta-argument" you're making. But one of my (many) misgivings about the American Revolution was the mob actions.

I'm much less concerned about toppling statues than I am about tar and feathering loyalists, stealing loyalists' property, and harassing British soldiers (pre-Revolution, during the "Boston Massacre") whose main crime was being so desperate they had to join (or who were quasi-coerced to join) the British army.

Again, though, I understand the point you're making. And I more or less agree.
