Crime And Deviance is something that does not conform to the norm (a typical dictionary definition). If these words are used for a person they can mean that someone ignores the common and behaves in unique ways (sharply different ways from customs). However, all these dictionary explanations don’t give an emotional color to these words. Are they aimed to show something positive or negative? Deviance and Crime are good or bad? It is cool or weird to be deviant? Maybe it is even desirable? All these questions are directed to different processes and things in different specific moments of the human being history.
First question that society raises due to different deviances – is can they be functional and effective or not. Now we can surely say that yes, deviance can lead to many effective and functional results for both parties – a carrier and the society. Moreover, modern word even cultivates deviance in different spheres. For example, such people as Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs are examples of effective and functional for society deviant people. Nowadays all colleges and universities encourage their students to be creative and think non-trivial (surely, in fields where it is acceptable). However, this situation was totally different a hundred years ago, when it was a good tendency for students to strictly follow the rules. Those times deviance was unrequited. Similar situation is now in Chinese schools, where teachers train children to keep their own opinions with themselves and learn exactly what instructors give.
Deviance is effective for spheres where it can lead to more effective processes. It helps professionals to invent something new, after that deviance is not needed and common people continue the process. In all times some deviant people were successful in different fields – politics, art, science, culture, religion and etcetera. The hardest time for deviance was in Middle Ages. Those times deviance was equal to the crime. However, only a crime is totally negative term. Deviance can be both colors – negative and positive. Crime is something that leads to negative results for people and breaks the law, while deviance can be functional for the society and positive. The crime uses deviance to make some negative effect for people that is why it is always against the law. Anyway, it is a wellspring for the argumentative essay.
