Can you compare and contrast the pluralist elite and hyperpluralist theories of interest groups?


While the pluralist theory emphasizes that politics is merely a competition among groups ? according to elite and class theory, ? hyperpluralism contends that these groups weaken the political backbone rather than support it. Pluralism and hyperpluralism are similar in that both agree that groups indelibly impact society, and therefore the government by pressing their concerns through organized efforts, however they differ as to whether the impact is positive or negative, respectively.
