Hence, collective action should not occur in most cases because every individual has reasons to free ride on the other group members. This prediction seems at odds with the real-world observation that group action does occur in many instances, from voting to mass demonstrations and collective violence. This led some scholars to argue that coordination rather than cooperation is the basic strategic interaction that underlies group action. According to Hardin (1995), the power resulting from mass action can diminish the costs of joining to a level that is sufficiently low to reduce the free-rider problem to a problem of coordination (see Heckathorn 1996; Macy 1991; Marwell and Oliver 1993).

There is a slightly higher probability of persisting polarization for the “alternating” version of the dynamics compared with the “actorbased,” which is the reference category. The probability of persisting polarization is highest for the “fast network” version, which is understandable since many network changes result in a network falling apart in groups with different behaviors before actors have an opportunity to adapt behavior. Substantively, this leads to the plausible interpretation that in societies in which relations are more volatile while people tend to stick more strongly to their behaviors or opinions, it is more likely that persistent disagreement arises that may induce conflicts.
