How do people develop a strong sense of political efficacy?  Doubtless there are complex personal and social causes (Kinder and Sears, 1985).  The activist's sense of political efficacy is linked to a broad sense of personal, rather than external, control over life events in general (Tyler and McGraw, 1983).  Moreover, antinuclear activists perceive
social support for their actions from role models, family, friends, and people who are important to them (Flamenbaum et al., 1985; Garrett, 1985; McClenny and Allbright, 1985; Pavelchak and Schofield, 1985). Anti-nuclear activists, then, are people who think about nuclear war a lot and think they can help prevent its occurrence, and they are fortified by a sense of personal control and social support for their activity.
