The revolution between the rich and poor would allow individual to generate a new society. On a whole, each theorist theory builds on each other in regard to division of labor. Given these points, each theorist makes a valid point about division of labor while presenting similarities and difference in their views. Marx believes division of labor would lead to conflict.

An influential politician, for example, has a lot of power not because he has money, but because his decisions impact society at large and play a very important role in governing the lives of others. Weber notes that although bureaucratic rationalization has disenchanted the world and its endurance seems inevitable, the spirit has not been completely eradicated. Weber believes that as an advanced society we cannot escape the pattern of rational rules and laws. However, he allows for the arrival of prophets or charismatic people from time to time, those who exhibit good rational administration skills as well as heart and passion.
To begin with, as discussed in the first lecture, the State is what the majority of people consider to be the main authority of the house. What needs to be understood though is what role it plays for the larger scheme of things. Using Marx, class-analytic approaches, one can see in his piece “A contribution to the critique of political economy” he argues that types of states should be understood through material relations of life or as expressed in this case ‘bourgeois society’(Marx,159). These societies are known as the ruling class in capitalist societies. Also just to keep in mind there are different bourgeoisies.
By using advanced methods of production introduced by the Industrial Revolution, they were able to earn a substantial surplus by ruling the middle class. Thus, maintaining their present class of life, while the middle class was exploited and degraded. At this time in history, social theorists like Emile Durkheim and Karl Marx challenged the aspect of social structure in their works. Emile Durkheim is known as a functionalist states that everything serves a function in society and his main concern to discover what that function was. On the other hand Karl Marx, a conflict theorist, stresses that society is a complex system characterized by inequality and conflict that generate social change.
Classes are authority relationships based on property ownership. A class defines groupings of individuals with shared life situations, thus interests. Classes are naturally antagonistic by virtue of their interests. Imminent within modern society is the growth of two antagonistic classes and their struggle, which eventually absorbs all social relations. Political organization and Power is an instrumentality of class struggle, and reigning ideas are its
Instead, it allows for power shifts between groups. If the current dominant group is not convincing the suppressed, the suppressed shall rise and rebel, giving way to a new dominant group. This paper will explore how this concept came to be, examples of who is affected, where this phenomenon occurs, and current research being carried out today. Before Gramsci came up with hegemony, he was a Marxist. Marx and Engels “focused on the inequalities brought by the development of capitalism” (Mascia-Less 133), analyzed social relations within societies that had different modes of production, and delved into the superstructure of societies based on its infrastructure.
Through the autocratic leadership style, MNC leaders have exploited their power within third world countries such as Indonesia, by increasing their domination over thousands of employees and controlling their economy. By examining the effects of autocratic leadership practice and revealing its effects on globalisation it is evident that the behaviourial approach also contributed to the management of globalisation in post-bureaucratic methods, and is similar to that of the trait theory in the way leader misuse power and
Which lead to movements that aim market independence, ideological revolution, etc., that changes the traditional functions of the state and the society. The transfer of power to the actors that manages the market, the freedom of criticisms and personal judgment given to the people and the building of bridges between nations give rise problems on limiting the power of the states and their way of governance. This transformation is characterized by the abundant search for knowledge that resulted to more applicable political ideologies, economic models and sociological method. It has been a big challenge to critic the customs and habits of the conventional systems especially in most of the conservative society. But with the increase in the connections between nations which generated faster communication and transportation and experiencing the advantages of having the choice of voluntary participation on social activities has become one of the highlights of overcoming the traditional society.
In the state of moral and dynamic density, individualism and rationality are able to rise above “collective consciousness” and religion.

Marx argues that lots of various institutions and parts of society work together for the mutual gain of society and its members, not just the economic factors. Marx claimed that revolutions can be successful, but they depend on two factors firstly the main factor is economic situation; the second factor is human initiative. He stated that people must make their own reality, which means that if people want to change anything in society or else where they have to flight for it. Marx described his economic infrastructure as ‘ultimately determinant element in history’.
