Imagine a society in which there are no social classes- no differences in people’s wealth, income, and life chances. What would such a society be like? Would it be stable or would its social structure change over time? How could you apply Max Weber’s theory to this scenario? Provide examples.
A few utopian societies have been tried -- but have eventually failed. How would you apply Weber's theory to this scenario?

The only constant in life is change.
Which part(s) of his theory will you try to apply?
