Classic studies have always been the basis for many scholars in the analyses of modernization and current environment speculation. Classic studies pose challenges to the inquiries that surface in sociology; overturn the formalism of public administration studies and at several times reject the idealism of political science. William J. Grimshaw (1996) is of the opinion that "They brought a new tone of tough-minded realism to the study of urban politics, earmarked by a combination of rigorous empirical description and pragmatic normative prescription." One of the reasons Grimshaw provides for this view is that classical views often form the theoretical perspective of a problem or issue which makes it easier for modern scholars to approach the problem from an empirical point of view. Deficiencies can be addressed in a logical manner and analyzed pragmatically. For example reconceptualising logical perspectives for conflict resolution in a political conflict situation such as Palestine and Israel.
[...] The researcher envisions a utopian communist society that takes into account of the positive side of Marx and Engel's communism and integrate today's environment. Within this utopian communist society there are no political rights to exclusive property ownership. The workers are to sell their skills and labor for economic benefits which in turn support the state. Skills and labor does not necessarily mean production only but can include services and civic duties. There is no direct political power to control the workers to work for the capital needed for the state. [...]
[...] These are imperative for the transitioning of the capitalist to communist society and gradually introduce the people to a new form of life, society and order. The researcher does not claim that the above propositions are perfection but to a certain extent it would resolve the majority of the issues that the world is facing today. For every thesis there is an antithesis. Similarly for a dystopian capitalist society like ours, there must be a utopian communist one to counteract its ills and deficiencies. References Banfield, E. C. Political influence. [...]
[...] Public ownership in the utopian communist society would differ from the capitalist. According to Wood The kind of public ownership we know today has, to be sure, little in common with enterprises run under direct democratic control, by "free associations of direct producers." For that matter, even public enterprises themselves - not just the means of communication and transportation, but health care and education - can be, and in capitalism are, subjected to the logic of the capitalist market. The objective of today's neoliberal politics is to "privatize" anything that could conceivably be run for capitalist profit - from prisons, to postal services, to old-age pensions. [...]

[...] create many ills within the society that people live in. In modern day socio-political scenario there is no difference. For example during the 1950s and 1960s social uprising in America had been the result of conflict between the political leadership and the public. b. Political might Contemporary political orders face challenges of globalization, nuclear might, decisive alliances and legitimacy of the authority etc. Hence, today many nations are forming "partnerships" with distant nations with the view to unite their forces against or to unite with capitalist alliances.
