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.

Normen und Regeln werden neu interpretiert, indem sie im Geflecht konfligierender Beziehungen in neuen Situationen erprobt werden. Ober das Kriterium "Bereitschaft zum Konflikt" ist somit AufschluB Ober die Frage zu erwarten, ob ein soziales System eher starr und dogmatisch oder eher flexibel und anpassungsfahig mit Veranderungen umgeht. Eine starre Reaktion auf Konflikte kann ein Anzeichen dafOr sein, daB das soziale System (BundeswehrfOhrung und/oder Darmstadter Signal) an die Grenzen seiner Moglichkeiten staBt, oobei der dogmatische Umgang mit Konfliktthemen Hinweise auf die "blinden Flecken" der jeweiligen Konfliktpartei gibt.

Und dennoch darf nicht Obersehen werden, daB Quellenkritik immer dam it einher geht, mogliche verdeckte Zielsetzungen des Textes herauszustellen und damit ein StOck weit explizit zu machen. Der Leser soli uber einen Zusammenhang informiert werden, der nach Ansicht des Autors aus dem Text vordergrundig nicht erschlossen werden kann.
