I think SegWit is a great development and a lot of miners only think about their own profit and political power, not about what the healthiest thing is for longterm bitcoin development.

So here is my question: I read here that nodes somehow can force miners to activate segwit, because otherwise they would loose potential transactions? source

But there are also a lot of (maybe just wrong) counter arguments, that it's not possible with the combined power of the nodes (which currently support segwit with already about more than 50{88c91daedd271a990a10650c05d769cae2765e0603edf30ca95f18704e5748e8}) – here is the link to bitnodes.21.co statistics

So tell me, is it possible as "normal users" to force miners somehow to use segwit? What can we do?
