Well, since there is no explicitly defined organizational structure, I 
suspect the following model applies.  It usually applies to those groups who 
do not wish to acknowledge to others, themselves, or both that they have 
"politics" AND who seek to conceal lines of responsibility and/or power by 
having no paper trail or formal organization.  Thus, the mafia distinguishes 
"politics" (individual Italian-Americans privately involved in Democratic 
Catholic groups or Knights of Columbus) from "family affairs" (the REAL 
politics of a family having the same status as a nation state - a legacy from 
Roman, feudal, and Renaissance social organization).
