Abstract:

This article links individual and group meaning-making processes with dynamic institutional forces by examining the meaning-making practices of a populist right-wing movement that coalesced primarily around a critique of globalization. Using ethnographic data I analyze archival texts and in-depth interviews from a snowball sample of people who self-identify as Patriots and who participated in the Patriot and militia movement in the 1990’s. Analysis showed that the Patriot movement’s main ideological narrative, the new world order conspiracy, provides an answer to economic marginalization and the attendant individual feelings of loss of control over one’s life. The peculiar practices of the Patriots suggest a modification of dominant social movement theories to include practices that circulate among the marginalized and populist.
