Weber believes that “without bureaucracies, tasks could not be performed efficiently for large amounts of people”. That belief can be connected to Weber’s other point of view in which he believes that being rich and wealthy was a necessity in order to be saved. On the other hand, what doesnt make sense to me, is how Weber says that religion “set up the foundation for capitalism”. If Weber is always mentioning properties and bureuacracies, etc, why does he say that religion set up basic capitalism? If you think about it, it’s slightly self-contradicting. He also mentions how having economic power does not always mean that you will have a certain social status in society. For example, he mentions how making illegal money does not earn you respect and that it is looked down upon. So all in all, yes Weber is right in saying that the people in society are separated into classes. It actually fits perfectly into the United States’s present problem. Yes the rich are basically safe beacause of their money and whoever made that money in a grimy way is looked down upon. Unfortunately, the middle class and the poor are not presently in a good spot.
