To begin with, one could observe many fictional social constructs that have conquered our society. Over time, societies have socialized us to believe made up narratives such as gender roles, marriage, and religion, effecting billions of people 's behaviors on a daily basis. In fact, these social constructs have caused division, misinformation, and suffering to the human race. To expand, social constructs eliminate free expression in societies, then leading to tyranny. Likewise, another key consequence of these social constructs is that they are a source of psychological pain for the deviants in that society.
There are many factors that determine how people behave in their daily lives. We are run by a number of rules and regulations that influence the way we behave, talk and live. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding shows that without the influence of a civilized society and law and order, people’s characteristics can change drastically. Similarly in Macbeth, Shakespeare represents the loss of morality of a leader as his hunger for power clouds his judgement. Both pieces of literature present how both writers view the breakdown of morality through the breakdown of civil behaviour.
Therefore, the knowledge people gain about good and bad affects their emotions while making actions. Civilization would collapse and society would turn into a chaos in the absence of the sense of guilt, because it awakens in people the knowledge they obtained through their life and reminds them of the difference between right and wrong, and the different laws and rules that must be obeyed. Moreover, civilization oppresses the death and revenge drives people have. Humans are naturally aggressive. Hence, this knowledge is essential for the survival of
“Before the truth can set you free you need to recognize which false belief is holding you hostage” -Anonymous Striving to achieve consonant cognitions or consistent behaviour always in our daily lives poses great difficulty as the media, our experiences and social interactions are constantly influencing our attitudes, behaviour, beliefs, knowledge and decisions made. Furthermore, through cultural diffusion such harmonious, internal consistencies are threatened, incongruence occurs and our perceptions of things change thus resulting in dissonance. According to Baron, R. A. et al (2008), cognitive dissonance—a consistency theory, is an internal state that results when individuals notice inconsistency between two or more attitudes; two or more decisions or between their attitudes and their behaviour. The theory coined by Leon Festinger (1957), is a universal phenomenon, experienced by many across all cultures. Due to the linkage between our behavior and our attitudes there is often a gap created between what we feel on the inside and what we show on the outside.

It tends to believe that social forces such as schools, media and even culture has an enormous impact on individuals’ choices and way of living. That is to say, that the society people are living in is extremely important in creating one’s identity since it has an influence on his choices about everyday decisions through the different channels and establishes certain rules and regulations about how one should act, speak and even think as it can be observed from the movie “Bride and Prejudice”. Even though a lot of studies prove that social structures like traditions and schools power over individuals is paramount, it is important to realize that people can change them by simply ignoring or reproducing them. First and foremost, according to Foucault, contemporary society, human beings are living in can barely be called postmodern, since despite of vast technological advancement, civilization hardly gone beyond modernity (Gauntlett D., 2002). As a matter of fact, certain societies on their race after a capitalist democracy do not repudiate other traditions they bear for a long time, thus fail in their way to modernize.
