Did the arguments you read on this discussion topic change your perspective? Personally, I feel much more inclined to the pluralist society because it feels like a way to evenly distribute the power. “A pluralistic society is one having multiple groups and institutions through which power is diffused. Within such a society no entity or interest has overriding power, and each may check and balance others” (Steiner & Steiner, 2012). I feel this creates less opportunity for corruption as there are many chiefs, not just one such as the Rockefeller situation. The dominance theory seems much more likely to happen and more common in the corporate world. References: Pratt, J.A. (June, 2012). Exxon and the Control of Oil . The Journal of American History.
