    The functionalist theory explains the evolution of society. The conflict theory explains that the people who subscribe to it are leftists who derive their worldview from emotion and not rational thought. Conflict theory only applies emotion to the issue rather than objective dispassionate analysis. There is no comparison only contrast.
