If someone does something beyond their roles, they are questioned. However, the beliefs of society snatches ones freedom and when one attempts to step out from the shed of orthodoxal beliefs then quarrel among people takes place and when the situation becomes chaotic the person ends up accepting the situation and lives with the beliefs that gradually churns the
People tend to argue/fight leading into destruction causing conflicts, over differences if its physically or even spiritually. Any difference than what you are use to, often bring out destructive sides of human, we often only accept “normal” people into our society. The Chrysalids is a story that has much to do with despicable, but commonly seen nature of humans. Secondly because of discriminating one another, anger will be built up because of the judgments and the level of equality and erupt with controversies. Also, this is not a one vs. one, it’s a society vs. society only because there’s large groups of people who are “normal”, and a large group of “deviants” and these both groups are opposing each
“What’s that thing on your face?” was the first thing I heard when meeting a new kid for the first time. Although this type of greeting is generally considered rude, I was never ashamed of my birthmark. My mother had convinced me that it was an “angel kiss”, and that very few babies had the privilege of being kissed by an angel. Those who were, would have a mark forever. At first glance I looked pretty normal as a young boy: two eyes, a nose, a mouth--the usual, but as I met other kids, I realized that they were staring at the bright red birthmark that dominated the left side of my face.
The society we live in functions as a whole so conforming is essential in our lives as human beings. If we are scared and don't know what to do, we will often follow the steps of others so that we can be accepted and feel safe. Conformity is the result of people being pressured to fit in. There is a fine line between conforming and becoming an individual. Unfortunately, becoming an individual in certain situations can have bad consequences.
The latter quote is clear evidence that people should not leave it to others to inform them of how certain concepts in life work. Janie listened to her grandmother’s ideas about love and went into her first marriage enormously unguided. In the end she felt very disappointed with her marriage to Logan, but nonetheless, she was able to learn that marriage and love were not always synonymous. If Janie would have never experienced marriage herself, it is very possible that she would have remained ignorant to the fact that a marriage between two individuals does not result in love every time. People should learn from Janie’s experience about witnessing and living things for themselves instead of just trusting the opinions and beliefs of
She appeals to the audience when she is talking about her three daughters and how she can not spend much time with them because of her back to back shows. Her key stories in the speech was about the hum in her life and the simple question her daughter asked. She makes an image out of the humming feeling and makes the audience try to feel the same thing as her also saying it is like being a workaholic to be more relatable. So, when she lost that feel of the hum it was like she did not know what to do anymore. She then goes on to how she had to cope without the feeling anymore and how one simple question from her daughter brought back that simple hum.
Social Norms are the somewhat unwritten rules about how to act or how to behave. They provide us with an expected idea of how to behave in a particular social group or culture. They are the accepted standards of behaviors in particular groups, which may range from family, to friends, schoolmates, workmates, and other citizens. Because of these norms and their underlying implication, the people who do not follow them are shunned or ignored. Therefore, sociologists have given the definition, “Social norms are rules developed by a group of people that specify how people must, should, may, should not, and must not behave in various situations.” According to American sociologist William Graham Sumner, there are some norms labeled as “mores” which encompasses all norms that are necessary in a society.
On the surface, relativism allows people from various backgrounds from disagreeing on serious issues. In actuality, however, this is impossible. Thirdly, societal pressure often draws people towards an acceptance of moral relativism. Modern society ridicules those who oppose relativism; instead of encouraging individuals hold firm to their beliefs, society called moral objectivists bigots, backward, and close-minded. Young adolescents, especially, are susceptible to societal pressures.
There is no specific idea and definition what are count as deviance and crime, “There are no purely objective definition; all definitions are value laden and biased to some degree” and what is defined as crime by law “is somewhat arbitrary, and represents a highly selected process” (Barak, 1998: p. 21). In Saudi women who drive were count as deviance and also count as crime according to their laws but not in our society. Why these differences were happen? These were happen because the laws and norms were created by individual or group that has power in the society. Different society will have different thought toward the idea of deviance and crime.
Laws are regulations established by authorities, such as the government and are enforced by the police to make sure that the laws are upheld. Laws are enforced to preserve safety, supervise actions of individuals and work for the better good of society. Without the laws, chaos would spread across the world. However, there are times when each and every one of us finds a law to be unjust and would love to see that law change. Throughout the history of mankind, civil disobedience hasn’t been very uncommon.
