In addition each faction could have multiple influences that determine how the group reacts and what it may do. From here pieces began to fit together a little bit better. I could begin to see theories as elements to a larger whole and explanations to movement’s evolution. I could now understand with much more clarity why within one movement you may have protest, educational outreach, be formalized in one geographic area while unrest and chaos still persist in another. This concept was the genesis of this section and it is from this perspective that I offer my opinions on the Origin of a Social Movement. My sincere hopes are that you may glean insight or it will spur thought so that you may sustain or continue the development of a meaningful social cause.
