What is a reasonable outside view for the fate of social movements?
score: 12 (6 votes) ·
Off the cuff:
- Temperance movement in the United States
- Much of the radical left movement from the 60s to the 70s (ex. Students for a Democratic Society -> Weatherman)
- The Shakers
Another useful line of inquiry might be factoring out what success for a social movement looks like, find social movements that "succeeded", and see what happened to the social movements they were competing against.

+1 for noting mistake and for noting the importance of being bold, and asking questions and sharing models even when you're uncertain.
Your use of the Epistemic status tag - which I think /u/gwern pioneered? - seems good for balancing the value of sharing models while preventing polluting the "idea space" with potentially misleading/untrue things.
