The members of the stratum are af®liated with different political parties. However, although members of the stratum are directly and primarily involved in shaping political issues, they are also easily manipulated by politicians. Through reward and deprivation of political favours, the politician can manipulate support on certain issues. For Dahl, even if a minority of leaders controls the policies of political associations, the policies of the leaders in local government would tend to re¯ect the preferences of the populace.

Underlying this is the belief that political power is always open to abuse and there was a need to control all forms of power. Thus, the idea emerges of the limited state, restraining state action and limiting its activities. From a traditional liberal perspective a limited, restricted state is not a weak state, rather it exists to guarantee basic `natural rights' of the individual. One of the key functions of the state, therefore, becomes the protection of the individual from arbitrary interference, whether from other individuals or the state itself.

At most it is little more than a `rubber-stamping' forum for decisions made in the public arena. Policy coordination, if it does occur, is undirected and unintentional. The neutral state model, however, does provide for a more sophisticated and formalized coordinating role by the state, whereby institutionalized pluralism is expressed through a cabinet system of government. Even within this model, however, such a role is far from advanced. This broad notion of a neutral state has led to much criticism, particularly from Marxists, and it is to these ideas which we will now turn.
