Support for Established Procedures
The most compact and manageable part of our whole model is the left-hand chain of assumptions in Fig. i. z, which lead from the absence of irreconcilable disagreements on the most important issues to a greater confidence among the politically active that their issue-demands will be satisfied, then from demand-satisfaction to the existence of positive attitudes towards established democratic procedures. The data-predictions arising from this little chain can readily be presented and tested within the bounds of one chapter, which will thus encapsulate the approach to the validation of hypotheses against data adopted in our handling of the other and more extended lines of reasoning in chapters 3/ to 6.
