@misc{cogprints4275, title = {A QUANTITATIVE MODEL OF THE AMPLIFICATION OF POWER THROUGH ORDER AND THE CONCEPT OF GROUP DEFENSE}, author = {Dr. Eugen Tarnow}, year = {2000}, keywords = {Group defense, power, order}, url = {http://cogprints.org/4275/}, abstract = {I propose a simple quantitative model of how the power of a leader over a group is amplified when he or she starts to order the group. This model implies that a small well-informed minority can easily govern a previously ordered majority such as hijacked passengers. The model leads to the concept, ?group defense,? which stresses the importance of group members resisting enemy ordering and creating a counter-ordering. Group defense may be helpful in preventing fatal hijackings such as the ones that occurred on September 11 and other massacres on civilians.} }
