    Ah I didn't put in the divine right of kings! You said you said the same thing so I'm sure you'll be fine! Did you say anything about authority? I didn't
    No not authority, I don't think authority links. I said hierarchy is an inevitable feature of the organic society. Used the example of the body having different functions, some being more important than others, no different to society, there's workers and managers, leaders and followers. Thus social equality is impossible and hierarchy is inevitable.

    How about other 15 markers what did you do?

    I reckon the nationalism 45 marker will be a kind of question like "to what extent does nationalislm breed conflict" or "nationalism is a progressive ideology" discuss. Those kinda question are what they have asked in the past anyway

    My friend wrote about the social contract theory for rationalism
    He said he just couldn't remember anything so he wrote how Hobbes and locked used rational thinking to sacrifice Liberty in order for social order
    That doesn't sound right does it lol?

    I think the 45 mark question went really well, but I have a few worries about the 15 mark questions, was wondering if any of you could help.

    Particularly worried about the rationalism question. I did a solid first paragraph with a definition of rationalism and about how liberalism and rationalism were both formed in the Enlightenment period and both therefore place strong faith in reason and progress, but then basically ran out of things to say and made some stuff up on the spot about how negative libertarians believe humans are inherently self-seeking, and used the reason and logic associated with the Enlightenment to come to the conclusion that individualism is more favourable than collectivism, since humans would not willingly cooperate in a collectivist society, and thus individualism is logically preferable. Is that last bit even relevant and does it make sense?

    Also did the socialism/collectivism question, and somehow managed to forget to mention how they both see humans as sociable, cooperative etc. and would naturally work better in a system of mutual interdependence. Instead, I just defined collectivism, and went into how different strands of socialism have endorsed collectivism, with Marxists and Leninists being more economically radical, and Social Democrats being less radical but that this does not negate their commitment to collectivism as they show a desire to improve on previous methods which have failed. Obviously I went a little more in-depth, but is this a problem?

    Probably just be worrying about nothing but really annoyed I forgot my plans, thanks and hope your exams went well

    For social hierarchy I put;


    Natural leaders, noblesse oblige, authority of church and state due to human nature being flawed intellectually, morally, psychologically flawed, and tradition

    Forgot organic...

    For liberalism and rationalism, I explained how the enlightenment created the capacity to reason. This created the need for a limited state. This allowed for debate to occur to solve conflicts. This means a protection of civil rights and freedoms and individualism.


    Am I fooked? I don't know haha :/

    Thanks man, keep having moments where I worry I misread a question. That was just the standard 'inevitably of gradualism' stuff then.

    hello sorry i did not do the socialism question 15 marker but did the rationalism one.

    Noe sure if correct myself but my structure was like:

    - Intro
    - How rationalism came about (enlightment onwards)
    - (1) reason why they link is because rationality strengthens individualism and liberty...explain then in contrast they reject paternalism
    - (2) reason why it links is because it allows society to progress, then comparison point to conservatives on tradition being backward looking whether than forward like liberals
    - (3) point talked about how it promotes discussion debate, and argument but they are not pacifist in contrast

    something along those lines briefly

    Can somebody give me the answers for 15 mark 1.socialist collectivism 2.conservatism hierarchy
    Not sure if im right but for conservatism on social hierarchy i talked about it in the following order

    - Conservative introduction
    - their view on natural hierarchal society link with organic society
    - social equality is a myth to them and non desirable and compared to socialist view on social equality with communal living that Owen and Fourier went on to emphasis
    - Burke on 'natural aristocracy'
    - then link to authority as they believe in social obligation as a natural hierarchal trait of organic society, seen as 'natural necessity'
    - then went on about having healthy respect for authority...explain...
    - differ from authoritarian conservatism

    something like that but went in detail in exam
