Document Summary

Parliament and canadian society: state-society relationship: society is a vast monolith, and much smaller. Embedded democracy is the state (parliament, courts, etc. ). Politics is the state society relationship, but no one takes it seriously. In democracy the society gives inputs to the state and the state creates policies from that, creating a feedback onto society. Embeddedness is the more actualized theory that says the state is embedded within society: no matter the country they are in, politicians, advisors, judges, civil servants, and student in this class are all people. They all think and act relatively the same. When looking at politics look at the behavioral foundations or human behavior of it. Things we think about having value (money) only exist because we believe that they exist, but really it is nothing: the state plays a part in the social construction of reality. An example of this is the clearing that is made through a forest that shows the canada-us border.
