A score of 2 on the Government Sanctioned side of the Role Potential spectrum indicates that while Government sanctioned Role Potentials still out number extra-Government Role Potentials, popular representation is ineffective and cumbersome. Non-state actors, that normally exhibit lawful practices, operate in environments with less restrictions and are more likely to engage in unlawful behaviors. The failure of government to represent the needs and desires of the populace will likely predispose the populace rhetoric and ideological persuasion. However, these socio-political environments demonstrate a much greater degree of control by the Government, effectively reducing the potential for non-state actors roles.

-Government Sanctioned Role Potentials include participation in organized and regulated business and political systems, organized groups (religious, labor, activist), etc.
-Extra Government Role Potentials include violence, bribery, ideological persuasion, etc.
