Document Summary

Laws becoming more functional insulated form other institutions (religion, politics) and therefore more autonomous. Weber"s rationalization comes from calvinists, which states that there is a predestined future for us choose by god. This belief brought anxiety, because it basically said if your meant to go to hell, you will go to hell. So to combat this, they come up with these markers that identi ed who is damned and who isn"t: hard work and the accumulation of wealth. Therefore, law is god-given, universal and natural - natural law but this belief fails to account for the variations in the legal systems cross- culturally and historically. Status and wealth (being of noble blood vs. poor people) was inherited. While in modern times, social class/status is not soley determined by your family background or upbringing, instead it depends on the individual and their e orts. African american get racially pro led incorrectly, those with wealth and status get away with crimes, etc.
