Conversely, neither financial dislocation/social disorganization nor monetary prosperity/social integration have been with regards to the variety of military teams at the kingdom point. those findings recommend that courses looking to preempt military formation via offering fiscal help will now not be triumphant. as an alternative, such courses needs to confront cultural concerns in addition.

Example text

Indeed, the Michigan Militia proudly noted in 1996 that not only was their leadership democratically elected, but that it was beholden to its membership (Michigan Militia 1996b). History of the Militia Movement in Michigan 25 In any case, the Michigan Militia’s bi-monthly public military style training sessions and activities, including high profile rallies and public protests (such as demonstrations against the United Nations) soon attracted attention from both the local government and the media (Hawkins 1994; see also Dammann 1994; Hamilton 1996; Stern 1996).

Aho pursued the answer to this question by attempting to capture and measure the concepts of mass society theory in a number of variables. In response to mass society theory’s claims that “physical mobility tends to loosen local group affiliations and render migrants available to extremist appeals” (149; see Social Movement Theories and the Rise of the Militia Movement 45 also Hixson, Jr. 1992), Aho (1990) examined whether or not geographic mobility was related to Idaho Christian patriotism. No support emerged in favor of mass society theory’s assumptions since the patriots, while more mobile than the average American, were not more mobile than their fellow Westerners.

Both types of areas are less likely to produce a cohesive community and more likely to suffer from social stress in that: “[These right-wing groups] may have attracted those enduring the strains of migration.
