The Individual-level of analysis examines human actors on the global stage.
There is another difference: the proletarian class cannot come to realization of its alienation and subordination to bourgeois interests as the capitalists create opportunities for the upper tier of this class.
This upper tier is called the aristocracy of labor.
Level of analysis discloses three different ways of understanding international relations.
The System-level analysis considers "top-down" approach to study world politics (Rourke, 2007, p. It emphasises that international actors, countries, operate in a global social-political-economic-geographic environment and the explicit characteristics of the system outlines the mode of interaction among the actors.
The theory implies that states no longer have a conscious interest in forming foreign policy but that the best possible policy formulas are determined by the structure of the system itself (anarchy) and the states place within that system (distribution capabilities).
Like classical idealism, neoidealism accepts the notion that peace may be established in international politics through democratic principles applied to real situations.
It all depends upon which class holds state bourgeois classes of the richest nations accumulate capital (through hoarding). The existence of finance capital equals imperialism; they are one and the same.
The state is still instrumental (like in Marx) reflecting only the interests of the financial oligarchy.
