Realism and Domination Realists make no pretense of caring about personal freedom. These writers emerged at times when their respective societies appeared to be on the verge of monumental change, possibly even collapse. Emile Durkheim (1966) popularized a term used to describe this condition, that is, anomie. Due to burgeoning industrialization and the focus on personal ambition and success, societies were becoming cacophonies of claims and counterproposals. Nothing seemed to be available to hold these societies together.

Everything, simply put, flows from security and stability. But here again, social relationships are left behind. As opposed to nominalists, however, realists do not try to create the illusion that individual actions are related to the creation of social order. Realists believe, instead, that if individuals are not suppressed, order will never prevail. Persons working together to produce a common bond, for example, is not a possibility. Too much personal latitude is involved. Accordingly, what matters to realists is that persons are controlled effectively, so that society, a complete abstraction, continues to function.
