Although identities can be beneficial, group member’s often look for negative parts of an out-group in order to make themselves look better. Identities can also create issues such as prejudice and racism. By looking at it from an anthropological viewpoint, we can see how when a person comes into a place where they do not share the same identity it can cause an uproar and judgement. People from the majority identity will look for reasons and force the outcast to be looked down upon. Having an identity can help in a child’s well-being, it can allow them to feel as though they belong.

The famed author C.S. Lewis once said,”Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.” This is a statement that many can agree or disagree on. To some, it means that a ruling power or government could enforce rules and regulations on its citizens that are thought of as helping them, but instead making everything worse and are hindering them from making the society better.
