Mechanisms and Process
|1.||Mechanisms driving movement from neutrality to widespread, but unorganized and unarmed, resistance (0 to +1).|
|2.||Mechanisms driving movement to locally organized and armed rebellion (+1 to +2).|
|3.||Mechanisms sustaining locally organized rebellion (maintaining action at +2).|
Some of the actions that characterize +1 behavior include writing antiregime graffiti, singing nationalist songs on buses, handing out or accepting antiregime literature, boycotting elections, and participating in “spontaneous” demonstrations. The significance of these actions is that they are public manifestations of antiregime sentiment, and, as each involves the possibility of sanction, they serve as public indicators of the number of risk accepters in the general populace and the amount of risk they will incur.1 In Chairman____________________
