Ralf Dahrendorf theorized that underlying all social order are imperatively coordinated associations. This is described as organizational groups based on power relations. In other words, the same people rotate in positions of power, and therefore, their ideals shape social order. These people achieve this authority through government, corporation and lobbyist positions. The best way to understand this concept is to look at an example so lets look at the food industry. During the Bush administration, the head of the FDA, Lester M. Crawford Jr. was the former executive Vice President of the National Food Processors Association and the chief of staff at the USDA, James F. Fitzgerald, was the former chief lobbyist for the beef industry in Washington. I see this being a HUGE social issue. This means that these men who have authority over the FDA, which is responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of food safety are making these very important decisions based on their own interest. It should come as no surprise that the FDA increased the amount of dairy that it is considered a part of a healthy diet, when research has shown that diary really isn’t all that “healthy” to begin with. Yet, these FDA reports are sent to schools across the nation, and are informing the public that they need to have more dairies in their diet. This is done all because the man in charge of making FDA decisions is making a profit from the dairy consumption.
