Deviant

Without deviation from the norm,

PROGRESS IS NOT POSSIBLE!

Frank Zappa

Structural-Functionalism

 

Social integration is the attachment to groups and institutions, while social regulation is the adherence to the norms and values of the society. Those who are very integrated fall under the category of “altruism” and those who are not very integrated fall under “egoism.” Similarly, those who are very regulated fall under “fatalism” and those who are very unregulated fall under “anomie“. Durkheim’s strain theory attributes social deviance to extremes of the dimensions of the social bond. Altruistic suicide (death for the good of the group), egoistic suicide (death for the removal of the self-due to or justified by the lack of ties to others), and anomicsuicide (death due to the confounding of self-interest and societal norms) are the three forms of suicide that can happen due to extremes. Likewise, individuals may commit crimes for the good of an individual’s group, for the self-due to or justified by lack of ties, or because the societal norms that place the individual in check no longer have power due to society’s corruption.

Well I dont really know where I am going with that thought, as i was veering to the subversive. I was going to post about Abbie Hoffman. I am going a little retroactive here, like going backwards in my experience of pop culture and the world.
