通过这种方法，由于其倾向于冲突的根源，这一概念为关于农民革命的具体调查问题提供了一些明确的答案(Smith, 2004)。因此，可以说，《弱者的武器》是人类学对政治学和历史学贡献的完美缩影。实证证据的基本修正风格是政治学家在这里得到的结果。没有这些证据，理论就会与现实脱节。由于先进的技术，马来西亚的绿色革命带来了高产种子。这项技术带来了一个新想法，以这些新种子的形式，提高人们的能力，使作物在一个季节的产量翻倍或超过作物产量(斯科特和詹姆斯，1985年)。有了这种方法，许多农民认为，这将是伟大的倾向于联合收割机，以便增加速度的收获将可能与两倍的作物产量。然而，在这里，很少有人能从这种新的发展中受益，它只显著地帮助了社会中最富有的人把穷人甩在身后(Yusuf et al.， 2015)。
弱势武器理论是一种基于社会变革的集体社会运动方式，必然构成了一场社会运动。经济和政治因素与这种社会进化有关，在这里，政府所期望的社会变革并没有被不同的人以同样的方式同等重视。那是因为,主要的作物产量翻倍的重要性随着技术发展和新种子由一群经验丰富的,同时它几乎没有注册另一组出现在相同的社会,很清楚的是,这种方法并没有影响所有的人以类似的方式(卢卡́cs&György, 1971)。詹姆斯·斯科特提供的证据是关于与穆达农民有关的较穷的部分。联合收割机给Sedaka的穷人制造了更多的麻烦。由于联合收割机政策，农民中较贫困阶层的水稻工人损失了近一半的工资(Kedward, 2012)。富裕的农民群体不认为这是一项重要的工作，当涉及到削减和脱粒时，允许劳动力。
With this approach, the concept has offered some definitive answers to the specific investigative questions regarding the peasant revolutions because of its inclination towards the ground roots of the conflict (Smith, 2004). Therefore, it can be mentioned that Weapons of the Weak is the perfect epitome of how much contribution has been given by anthropology towards political science and history. The essential corrective style of empirical evidence is the result here which political scientists have gained. Without these evidences, the theories would have lost contact with the reality. The green revolution in Malaysia brought high yielding seeds as a result of advanced technology. This technology brought a new idea in the form of these new seeds to increase the ability of the people to double the crops or more than a crop yield in one season (Scott & James, 1985). With this approach, many farmers thought it would be great to get inclined towards combine harvesters so that increasing speed regarding harvesting would be possible with double the crop yield. However, here very few people got benefited from this kind of new developments, and it significantly helped only the wealthiest people in the society leaving the poor people behind (Yusuf et al., 2015).
The theory of weapons of weak is certainly constituted a social movement due to a collective approach of social movement based on social change. Economic and political factors are linked with this sort of societal evolution and here the social changes desired by the government were not equally valued by different people in the same way. It is because, the major importance of doubling the crop yield with technological developments and the new seeds was experienced by one group, at the same time it was barely registered for another group present in the same society, and it is quite clear that the approach did not affect all the people in similar way (Lukács&György, 1971). The evidence given by James Scott was about the poorer section linked with the peasantry of Muda. The combine harvesters created more troubles for the poor populace of Sedaka. Due to the combined harvesting policies, the paddy workers of the poorer category of the peasants lost nearly half of their wages (Kedward, 2012). The rich group of farmers did not think of it as an important work to allow the labour force when it comes to cut as well as thresh.
