*****  To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org  *****

Looking at the current US government shutdown... it "appears" that a small group of far-right politicians (a minority in their own Republican Party) have sway over the rest of the party (many of whom do not want the shutdown), but out of fear(apparently) all Republicans are supporting/voting the minority view.

Can a smart sociologist explain what is going on?  Have any SNA studies been done on how a small minority(~10%) controls a majority in a bounded network? Any good papers on fear in networks?
