The assertion that non-formal institution have no role to play in the processing stage of the system theory is an empty rhetoric. Comment.
The assertion lacks justification and is thus empty since the non-formal institution has a greater role in the processing stage of the systems theory. Non-formal institutions play a large role in the processing stages of system theory and we can see this role when we recognize that systems theory is built on top of stages that define a purpose and structure that exists naturally or is created by human beings. . This purpose and structure is strongly influenced by the social rules and concepts present in the individuals that form a community. These social rules and community concepts are the shapers of non-formal institutions. Thus, we can see that the greatest contribution of non-formal institutions in systems theory is that it is the non-formal institutions that create the limiting elements of a system in a community. It is true considering systems theory identifies processes by analyzing interconnections and interdependence among systems and accounts for the nature of open systems which interact with their environments. Considering every system is influenced by its environment, non-formal institutions also have a role to play in the processing stage of a systems theory because they are also engaged to systems to form a complex whole.
