Other translators of Weber including Alexander M. For Weber, legal-rational authority has been successful in Protestant countries because Protestantism fills the bill in terms of responsible capitalism. Genuine charismatic domination therefore knows of no abstract legal codes and statutes and of no 'formal' way of adjudication. Weber says it always "implies a minimum of voluntary compliance, that is an interest based on ulterior motives or genuine acceptance" in obedience" Weber It is not impossible, however, to find such type of a leader, as history would show.
Usage and custom often become the basis of rules, and violation of these may ultimately have some sanctions applied.
These may be informal sanctions, leading to mild disapproval, or they may be strong sanctions associated with discipline or ostracism. Where people develop uniform types of conduct, Weber refers to this as usage. Social honour may be accorded those who behave in the manner considered desirable by the status group. As control is maintained, there is a tendency for a more systematic and all encompassing set of laws and regulations to be established. A stronger degree of conformity is convention, where the compliance is not just voluntary or customary, but where some sort of sanctions may exist for those who do not comply with convention.
