Sociological Theory: Hegel’s Dialectic of Master and Slave

Premium POM, Uncategorized

This video will help explain why freedom is not freedom as we intend it to be.  This dynamic of master and slave happens on all micro and macro levels in life.

This is one of the main arguments for the self-limiting of rent seeking as I reference it on this site.  The relationship feeds in both directions towards the small organized elite as well as the large disorganized masses.  Though we use different terminology, the master slave dynamic still applies.

As you watch the video, apply what is being said to your understanding of the nation states and how they interact on a macro economic level.  – JC
