A Hypothetical Power-Analysis of Foucauldian "Exchange" of Ideas via Discourses


Discourse science conservatism religious fundamentalism liberal education the National Football League Patriotism
Privileged Position scientist high-status families interpreters of doctrine professoriate team owners flag flyers
Unprivileged Position non-scientist low-status families believers students players non-flag-flyers

1)  What "normative" conditions do these assignments of privileged and unprivileged status assume?

2)  What cultural forces can subvert those conditions and reassign status?

3)  Which of these exchange circuits compensate the unprivileged in one exchange by assigning them privilege in another?

Hint: if the subversion or compensation does not occur in this exchange system, might it occur in the exchange of material goods or of people?
