This is a replication of Abelson’s and Bernstein’s early computer simulation model of community referendum controversies which was originally published in 1963 and often cited, but seldom analysed in detail. The replication is in NetLogo, accompanied with an ODD+D protocol and class and sequence diagrams.
The model is written in NetLogo 5.3.1. It uses the owl extension (which is only interesting if one wants to produce an ontology, otherwise it should easily be run in NetLogo 6.
