    As a result, rational-choice theory has to contend with significant limitations when applied to the study of ethnic conflict, as it concerns unstable politics. For Sharp, political power, the power of any state—regardless of its particular structural organization—ultimately derives from the subjects of the state. However, as relative power is difficult to measure objectively it must be done subjectively, and this often seems offensive to neighbouring groups. He states that myth-symbolic complexes and also competition for territory and status cause conflict. If the group takes steps to confront the threats, its ethnicity becomes politicized, and the group becomes a political actor by virtue of its shared identity.

    At a certain stage of development, the material productive forces of society come into conflict with the existing relations of production or — this merely expresses the same thing in legal terms — with the property relations within the framework of which they have operated hitherto. Then an era of social revolution begins. Forbes is professor of political science at the University of Toronto. In studying such transformations it is always necessary to distinguish between the material transformation of the economic conditions of production, which can be determined with the precision of natural science, and the legal, political, religious, artistic or philosophic — in short, ideological forms in which men become conscious of this conflict and fight it out. These conflicts would be then reflected in society and Ward assumed there had been a "perpetual and vigorous struggle" among various "social forces" that shaped civilization. However, most scholars who use rational-choice theory remain sceptical of the view that individual action can be rooted in group interests, and not purely self-interest.
