This article studies the classical theory of communications—the Spiral of Silence. The key factors are extracted for multi-agent modeling and simulation with Netlogo. It turns out that opinion climate is the external formation of the Spiral of Silence. Besides, the size of opinion climate has no direct effects on the Spiral of Silence.
