Webers theory is all about class, social structure and status. Most of his theological views were present throughout the “The House of Fog and Sand”. One of the main characters in this movie, Colonel Behrani, shows how important class and status is to him. He and his family were very well off when they lived back in Iran but when he came to the United States, he wasn’t so fortunate. He worked in many menial jobs so that he can provide for his family. He never wanted to accept that his social class was now in a different rank and did everything to not accept and show that he was “poor”. He wore nice clothes and made sure to always appear wealthier than he was, he felt he needed to prove a point to society and his family. He bought a house and assumed that he would be able to fix it and sell it. Him doing this showed austerity, in the sense that he did everything he could to save money and was determined to sell it at twice the price he bought it for to regain money. The attorney that Kathy hires to help fight and get her house back can be seen as a symbol for a bureaucracy gone wrong. The power that is given to the officer, with being high in status was abused of in a terrible manner. He was threatening people and lying causing a lot of unnecessary chaos which unfortunately is what i believe many people in such high authorial position do.
