Abstract:

The focus of the following study is to explore whether there is a social profile for people who are more likely to have favorable attitudes toward high-risk activism for social change and whether being socially connected to one’s community has any effect. The results indicate that social capital does have a significant impact on attitudes toward high-risk activism for social change, as does being unmarried, having a low status job/career or being unemployed. Age is found to have a curvilinear relationship to the dependent variable, but most importantly, the study provides support for the possibility that there is a social profile for people willing to consider violence for social change.
