I found a hepful link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_conflict . Social conflict is part of a Marxist theory. The idea is that differences in resources cause conflict. People will always act in their own interests. This means that even in a cooperative society, people will not necessarily act in the interest of the group because they have common ideals.
