Using the conflict, functionalist and symbolic interactionist explain with suitable illustration the inevitability and universality of deviance
In a sociological context, deviance can be described as behaviors or actions that violate formally enacted life principles and violations of social norms.
Conflict theory explains that deviance leading to crimes results from inequalities between leaders in power and their subjects. At the same time, symbolic interactionist describes deviance to arise from socially constructed vices from nature that relates to crimes or deviance. While the Symbolic interactionist states that crime and deviance are learned from the environment, the Factionalists enforce the norms that discourage or warn people of the consequences of violation.
Social sciences depict conflict theory as an illustration of Marxist perceptions of deviance that embarks emphasis on the political, social, and material inequality for any social group that detracts ideological conservatism and functionalism. However, the universality is evident as described by the Marxist theories, which identify the general causes of conflict in global societies.
