When there is consensus for a hardfork, or when there is widespread support for a softfork, they can't be stopped.
This is why Segwit is certain to activate eventually: if the miners don't activate it, the community has widespread enough support that eventually they will get fed up and UASF or change the PoW algorithm.

As a sideline watcher for 2+ years, this is what I shake my head at everyday.
A 95% signalling Hardfork Segwit + 2Mb blocks would have easily gotten 95% of the community behind it. Such a simple compromise. Tragic that it didn't happen.
But, my question is still serious. With 95% needed, why not implement a cleaner hardfork?
