Social Groups: Crash Course Sociology #16


How do the groups that you’re part of affect you? How do you, in turn, affect those groups? Today we are talking about how people in society come together with a look at social groups. We’ll look at what social groups are, the different kinds of groups that exist, group dynamics, leadership, conformity, networks and more!

    company, voluntary. bwhahaha. there is a strong coersive force behind the so called "voluntary" nature of wage work. ie the hoarding of resources and territory by an owning caste. with no territory or resources of thier own, the rest are forced to rely on the owners for survival, putting them at the mercy of the owning caste.

    I watch these as part of my sociology class. I've learned that my family acts more like a secondary group instead of a primary group.
