Hey Jay, good post! I agree that the conflict theory is still important, but do you think that it is still as relative as it used to be? Nowadays, we have access to more materials and tools that can get us to where we want to be. In the 1800’s, they did not have as much access to these tools. You said, “ Conflict Theory simply means that society is a contest for resources that may or may not be available to everyone. These resources can be either political, material or social and are in limited global supply.” But do we not have access to all these materials through computers and smart phones and so on??
