Recently, There Have Been Many Discussions About When/How States Will Make Decisions About Reopening Parts of Their Economies, With Debates About the Appropriate Role of State Policymakers, Such as Governors, Versus Federal Officials Such as the President of the United States: What Power/Authority Do These Different Actors Have in Addressing This Issue?
This is similar to the Marxist belief on the state, except that they believe that there exist a class system, whether it be age, gender, religion or ethnicity, there is a class system present. According to the French writer, each arm of the society is required to have a large and equal interest in the state business. He believed that the state would become selfish if one class decides to dominate the other classes. Nevertheless, the state as ‘the factor of cohesion of social formation’; in other words the state was vital for maintaining the stability of capitalism. As part of the superstructure, it would automatically tend to serve the interest of the ruling class. Therefore, the elite or ruling class does not have to become members of the state, because the capitalist system is benefiting them. Members of the state, no matter if they backgrounds are from humble beginnings, would never take harmful action against the ruling class. The role of the state in modern contemporary societies or ‘Human Community’ is to address the current issues of its people regardless of geographical region, identity and culture. The features of the state interconnects the idealist, functionalist and organization perspectives as it acts in unison in relation to its sovergnity, private and public sectors, legitimating, domination and territorial aspects. This involvement is characterized by at least three fundamentals; increasing human interconnection (networking globally), examining the pace and depth of human evolution (history) and linking the scale of anthropological and ecological transformation (social, cultural, economic and technological).
In this area, foundations are viewed favorably as policy players and appear to be reaching their target audiences. We cannot generalize the results to other issues and target audiences, but we believe nonetheless that our effort is an important first step in recognizing the role of foundations in policy making. We hope that our survey will spawn more empirical work to substantiate their role in other policy areas.
