In each stage one socio-economic class gave way to the other.

In America it is progressivism. In China it is the command economy. In India it is “developmentalism.” These all involve some level of market economy and some level of state control. Marx theorized that the economic stage after capitalism would be socialism.

But its results have been very close to Marx’s theories. A global system of government and economics would supersede nineteenth century capitalism wherein traditional nation-state sovereignty would be diminished.

The opposing view, however, focuses on the notion that America was formed by a group of ‘immigrants’ and that immigration is the very foundation of what constitutes being an American.

America began its quest for religious tolerance when immigrants from Europe and other countries began to flock to the country after World War I. In this predominantly Protestant country, people who did not belong to the same faith suddenly flooded the communities and left Americans afraid and unable to deal with the sudden surge of varying religions.
This particular theory can also be related with various ways through which people in a society share common ideas and opinions (Budrys 1-70). The aspects of functionalist theory can be noticed in Chapter 1 of the book titled ‘Dishonoring the Dead’. This chapter the author Jonathan Kozol largely focuses on the aspects that seem to have a strong relationship in matters pertaining to segregation in urban schooling system.
Despite the critique of objective normativity, Habermas's program does not neatly fit into the postmodern relativism of his Continental counterparts such as Foucault and Derrida. Habermas's concept of communicative rationality established a theoretical stance from which to analyze the epistemological structures of society and individuals that appreciated and was sensitive to the contextualized and historicized nature of reason and rationality without giving in totally to the sort of radical relativism that his intellectual contemporaries are usually accused of.
