How minorities affect large events

There have been countless occasions in history when small intransigent minorities have had large effects on major historical events.

Examples include the French and Russian revolutions. It is also interesting to note that both of these ended up resulting in centralized dictatorships of small groups of people under Napoleon and the Bolsheviks.

Going forward, it is interesting to observe how technology such as social media and decentralized crypto can influence large events in the future by giving power to large numbers of disparate decentralized groups. Perhaps, these could help in avoiding the pitfalls of previous centralized minority-influenced events? It remains to be seen.
