The paper describes the sociological theory which explains how people who have absolutely no sense of customs, rules, traditions, and norms can affect a society. The theory suggests that a state of antipathy and antagonism erupts when people refuse following the set standards of ethics. Theorists claim that such hostile and selfish behavior displayed by almost every resident of a community can drastically affect that society, since the structure and make up of a society depends upon the way people decide to behave. This theory suggests that poor and economically-deprived societies have low class culture and traditions, and they have got a distinct style of comprehending things. It predicts that sometimes, when people start acting in accordance with those rules and approaches that are common in low class communities, free transmission of crime may occur.
In the paper there are some steps which can help to understend social process. They are theory aims and theory differs.
This theory aims at explaining the reasons why an individual chooses a way that defies the accepted standards of the society. This theory reflects the approach of perceiving the atrocities committed by a criminal as his/her learned behaviors.
This explains a series of methods that show how people develop a propensity for crime by neutralizing or suppressing the ethical values, which would otherwise prevent them from falling in the silken snare of crime.
This theory differs from others in that it rejects the probability
that criminals have absolutely no ethical sense, rather it is built upon the observation that criminals have the idea of moral values, only they temporarily suppress it.
