The Story “The Man Who Knew Belle Starr” written by Richard Bausch has two main themes which are deviance and transgression. Deviance, according to Debra Marshall, is behavior that violates standards or expectations. She also mentions Robert K. Merton’s deviance typology. The chart displays five categories which are conformity, innovation, ritualism, retreatism and rebellion. According to Jenks’ “Whither Transgression?”, To transgress is to go beyond the bounds or limits set by a commandment or law or convention, it is to violate or infringe.
To start, Zimbardo defines evil as “intentionally behaving in ways that harm, abuse, demean, dehumanize, or destroy innocent others – or using one’s authority and systemic power to encourage or permit others to do so on your behalf” (5). Throughout the text, he holds a conception
Indifference need to be gain awareness and be stopped. He develops his claim by narrating the dangers of indifference, and how it affected his life then, describes how wrongful it is to be treated in such a way. Finally Wiesel illustrates examples of how indifference affected the world. Wiesel’s purpose is to inform us about the dangers of indifference in order to bring change about it. He establishes a straightforward tone for the president, ambassadors, politicians, and congressmen.
Humiliation in the eyes of author Wayne Koestenbaum is “to be made human”. Humiliation can be perceived as a “rite of passage” or a “passport to decency”.

Allport theorised that there were five methods in which discrimination can occur (Allport, Clark, & Pettigrew, 1979b). These include verbal discrimination, avoidance, and denial of service or withholding service, physical assault, and extermination. Gordon Allport’s, the nature of prejudice, defined the field of intergroup associations for social psychologists as the study of prejudice and its effects on group interactions. He brought the subject of ethnic stereotyping to the fore in behavioural science by treating this phenomenon as regular cognitive functioning. The cognitive approach is now the most dominant academic perspectives in research on prejudice and discrimination.
Firstly, the Utilitarianism will be outlined, secondly some strength and weaknesses are explained by employing examples, and thirdly several solution approaches for dilemmas Bentham’s Utilitarianism is facing will be sketched. Commonly, ethical systems are categorized into two major systems. The deontological approaches or normative ethical position which judges an action based on the adherence of the action to certain rules and the teleological approaches which judges primarily based on the consequences of an action (Hare, 1964). The Utilitarianism is assigned to the teleological approaches, as it does not evaluate an action by itself but by it’s
Alienation involves individuals’ feelings of separation or estrangement from a social structure or social institution (Johnson 1996; Seeman 1959)—it involves the feelings that interactions with the social structure or social institution in question will be unpleasant and unfavorable (Krishnan, Bhatnagar and Manchanda 2009). (1989a:9) George Ritzer , by generalizing five characteristics of McJobs, he theologized the consequence for the laborers alienated not only by their own workplace, but also from the entire society. From the article, “ New Technologies and Alienation: Social Critical Reflections” by Douglas Kellner clearly and distinctly illustrates the idea how Mcdonaldized works bring people to isolation.

The “sins” of mankind that they commit, whether well-meaning or not, are examples of how humanity is often flawed and broken. Humans do have redeeming traits, but in The Crucible, three key disadvantages of greed and abuse of authority, fear-mongering paranoia, and lying are outlined as failures that serve no benefit in human behavior. Hence, it should be analyzed and learned from, to see examples of bad choices made by human nature and the consequences attached to warn the audience of its
1. The Lucifer Effect is concocted Zimbardo is mainly about why “good” people turn “evil” or do horrifying things. The term evil means “behaving in a manner that harms, dehumanizes or demeans innocent others” (Zimbardo 146) the theory discusses whether humans are naturally evil (fixed) or is it their environment that fuels them to do things that are not in their nature.

Taking into account the behavior of Griffin and the expectations as recorded in the above contextual investigation it is reasoned that the rationale of Griffin 's activities plainly proposes his aim to have physical connection/favors. Inappropriate behavior is characterized as "unwelcome verbal or physical behavior of sexual nature that is serious or pervasive and influences working conditions or makes an antagonistic workplace. Inappropriate behavior incorporates different leads, for example, coercive assault, blackmailing sex for employment advantages, sexual or sentimental suggestions, sexual jokes, sexually suggestive pictures or toons, sexist remarks, disgusting dialect, hassling activities of non-sexual shape and even very much planned compliments. Thomas Griffin 's activities were scaring. His conduct towards Susan Pope was not conventional and here and there were odd.

Following this examination of factors, it could be said that moral exclusion is a phenomenon that can and does harm individuals and groups significantly. This is made evident in the occurrence of the Holocaust, and how society, influenced by people in positions of power and what the dominant thinking is at the time, could exclude groups from their moral community in order to rationalize doing what they would otherwise deem injustices, especially if the same acts were done to people they could relate to and who fall in the boundaries of their scope of
