Rider University Department of Sociology & Criminology Jordan Jones SOC 101 The Sociological Imagination Fall 2019 Phase 2 – Further Observations and Analysis Empire Socialization Role Conflict When one’s difference social roles conflict with each other, we experience role conflict . This theory is displayed in Empire season six when Lucious older son has a baby boy. During this time a whole lot was going on. Andre’s was the head of the company Empire he had complications going with the company and at home. His wife had a terrible time having the baby she was at home where she experienced very bad birth pains and she fell and hit her head. She lost a lot of blood which came from her lower extremities. Got to the hospital Andre had a choice to either save the baby of his wife. He chose to save them both but likely that the wife would die and the baby could die also. But they both made after having to be revived and prayer. But fast forward to the baby christening where the baby gets baptized at church. Lucious got a phone in the middle of the service and it was an urgent matter that needed to be solved. So he had to choose to stay or leave the service to take care of business. He chose to leave and take care of the urgent matter which perfectly shows the ideology of role conflict. Gesellshaft In a modern society there is low social cohesion and low levels of control, where nothing is free, and nothing is given unless a favor is being returned. That right there is called a gesellschaft society. The gesellshaft theory is depicted in season six where Andre is visited by an old jail mate named Mouse. Mouse shows up at Empire after being released from jail looking for a job at Empire. He reminds Andre of the days when they were in jail. Mouse help take care of Andre,
make sure nothing happened to him. Anything Andre need Mouse took care of him. He even killed a man for him. So Mouse was out of jail looking for compensation for helping Andre out.
