Diese Erwartung knupft sich an soziale Positionen prinzipiell unabhangig vom Charakter ihrer Trager. 4. Herrschaft ist stets auf bestimmte Inhalte und angebbare Personen begrenzt; im Gegensatz zur Macht bedeutet Herrschaft niemals absolute Kontrolle uber andere Personen. 5. Die Nichtbefolgung von Vorschriften aufgrund von Herrschaft INird sanktioniert; ein Rechtssystem beziehungslNeise ein System quasirechtlicher Normen wacht uber die Effektivitat von Herrschaft. Die These von der Ungleichheit des Ranges 5011 die Integration des Konfliktphanomens innerhalb der "normal en" Verhaltnisse einer Gesellschaft leisten, insofem sich sozialer Konflikt als sozialstruktureller "AusfluB" begrunden laBt.
