In both essays, the idea of social class fueling thoughts and perceptions of either the “Other” or “poor white class” in today’s society is drawn upon multiple times. In Prices particular argument, she targets many factors as reason to why racial dispute has still been a corruption in today’s society. Price focuses on the fact that the public media controls how the poor white class is viewed. The reader can draw from the essay that the media is controlled by the middle to upper class whites. An example of this is when Price explains that through things like movies, TV shows, and even public figures, the media dictates how the public feels about the poor whites.
Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps, into two great classes directly facing each other: Bourgeoisie and Proletariat” (Marx and Engels 1848). Social class, therefore, is based upon economic criteria and conflict occurs between those who own the means of production (bourgeoisie) and the wage-labourers (proletariat). As well as having economic control over the proletariat, the bourgeoisie also have the power to determine the superstructure; the ruling class can distort perceptions of the world and hide the true nature of social relationships and the exploitation of the proletariat and, above all, promote bourgeoisie interests. Marx defines production as workers selling their labour for wages in order to exchange money for commodities that will meet their most basic needs. As Marx
Some of the causes included, the extreme power to a single leader, and the desire for power, while some responses would be hatred towards the leader and hard work to stay alive, all depending on one’s perspective due to their status in a society. My first grouping would be documents 1, 4, and 6 because they all pertain to the leaders of the societies that caused the inequality. Document 1 is a wall relief from the palace of Sannacherib at Nineveh in 704-681 B.C.E. This wall relief shows the ruler or leader sitting at the top of a hill watching his slaves being brutally treated as they do hard work. His amount of power caused him to control his slaves to do hard work without remorse or sympathy towards them which caused the social inequality.

The conflict model content of criminal law is determined by the groups that hold economic, political, and social power in a community. This goes against diverse society, the dominant groups exercise power by codifying their value systems into criminal laws stating that moral attitudes are not absolute. However, since society had different segments its prone to have different value systems (Schmallager, 2009). In accordance to the conflict model, these different segments which are separated by social class, income, age, and race are engaged in a constant struggle with each other for control of society, since the goal depends on the individual for their own benefit and gain of power, which is more prone to lead to

Institutions can either benefit or harm individuals, depending on the response of the individual's to the necessary restrictions that institutions must place on society. Further, the operation of the institutions themselves will have an effect on the individuals that are stakeholders in that particular institution. Within Harper Lee’s, To Kill a Mockingbird and Suzanne Collin's, Hunger Games the responder gains an insight into differing institutions, Lee examines a lifestyle plagued with prejudice creating an institutionalised world within Maycomb, in comparison Collin’s text explores a fictional world of Panem dominated by one dictatorial party, the Capitol. Both institutions have a tendency to limit individual freedoms and individuals respond
Thus, both texts deal with the concept of fitting in to one’s own choice or an institution in terms that signify two different types of death. In Kesey’s novel, it is a death of self-expression whereas in Frost’s poem, death as a restriction of time and space which brings new life. To conclude, “One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest” and “The Road Not Taken” are texts which address conformity and wether an individual should decide to conform to mainstream society’s rules or take “The Road Not Taken” and suffer the consequences of that decision. Murphy dies but chief is given new life which illustrates both the negative and positive effect individuality can have. In Frost’s poem, it is all shown through the persona acknowledging he cannot go back and change his decisions and he will be stuck with his choices which will shape the rest of his life.

It also refers to the state of mind required in order to operate effectively as a social anthropologist. Anthropological training includes making assessments of and therefore becoming aware of one's own class assumptions, so that these can be set aside from conclusions reached about other societies. This may be compared to ethnocentric biases or the "neutral axiology" required by Max Weber. In addition, a Classless society is the ultimate of social organization, likely to happen when true communism is achieved. According to Karl Marx (1818– 83), the primary function of the state is to repress the lower classes of society in the interests of the ruling class.
