Freilich makes an attempt to figure out why a few states have better degrees of armed forces task than others. concentrating on the years 1994-1995, he unearths that cultural factors—not financial conditions--are with regards to degrees of military similar task. particularly, states with reduce degrees of woman empowerment and better degrees of paramilitary tradition have been likely to have extra military teams. Conversely, neither monetary dislocation/social disorganization nor fiscal prosperity/social integration have been with regards to the variety of military teams at the kingdom point. those findings recommend that courses trying to preempt armed forces formation by means of offering monetary help will no longer be triumphant. as a substitute, such courses needs to confront cultural concerns in addition.

These third parties obtain emotional rewards by aiding the social movement. Morris and Herring (1985) explain that “modern social movements... cannot generate and sustain movements because of their limited resources. In the organizationalentrepreneurial model .... [third party] conscience constituents provide the money and resources that generate and sustain movements.... These individuals donate money to movements because they get satisfaction by sympathizing with the goals of the underdog” (163; see also McCarthy and Zald 1987; Morris 1984; Pichardo 1998).

Any hope for a resurgence of the group, however, quickly fizzled as Van Huizen and Wayne continued to operate on their own. Furthermore, Olson’s participation proved to be short-lived indeed. In August of 2002 Olson announced that not only had the movement floundered but that he himself had become so disillusioned that he had decided to sell his farm and was planning to move with his family to Alaska (Noga 2002; Olson 2002). No discussion of the militia movement in Michigan would be complete without including the inspirational militia figure, Mark Koernke.

In contrast to earlier social movements which were thought to be comprised of primarily lower and working class individuals who were mainly concerned with economic issues, contemporary social movements were mainly populated by well adjusted middle class actors. It was believed that these individuals pursued cultural quality of life issues, as opposed to economic issues, and emphasized direct participation in the political process. Furthermore, it was emphasized that the examination of culture should take into account the unique context of each movement (Dobratz and Shanks-Meile 1997; Eyerman and Jamison 1991; Mahan 1997; Pichardo 1998).
