Social Conflict
Consequently, the theoretical perspective that best portrays my worldview is the social
conflict theory. Unfortunately, in every society, you must be able to identify at least an element
of prejudice directed towards a given cohort of that society. Such bigotry can be in the form of
racial, gender, religious or age discrimination. However, such chauvinisms in most cases result
only in a two-way outcome, a loss-win’ situation. Nonetheless, winners of such societal
prejudgments are always against the attempts to initiate change in the society. Perhaps, such
occurrences in the society are the proof of Karl Marx’s views that the capitalistic society is a
ground for class struggle. According to Marx, the struggle is pitched between the bourgeoisie
class and the proletariats. The rationale is that the upper class are determined to exploit the lower
class by consolidating all the forces and means of production. Such connotations by Marx are
correct. However, I believe that social conflict in the world extends further to other aspects of
life such as religion, gender and even age.
Consequently, most societies are structured in a way that social class dictates the success
and potential of an individual. For instance, in countries like India where the class system is
static, an individual born to impoverished parents cannot command the respect of the upper class
whether such individuals work hard to accumulate significant wealth. Similarly, gender debates
remain a contested issue in numerous societies. For example, women have risen in the modern
era to show that they are equal human beings against the ancient misconception that men are

superior beings. However, despite the awakening of the world that the male and female genders
are equal, some societies continue to portray the male figures as more significant attracting a
fight from the feminists against such prejudices. Therefore, there still is the gender supremacy
battle around the globe.
Precisely, my understanding is that society is a ground for social conflict. However, other
people limit the social struggle to the economic perspectives, which I believe is utterly being
conservative. The social struggle indeed stretches to various elements of the society and
restricting it to economic tandems is a misconception.
