He does not care what society thinks of him and in some situations he does not even care about the laws and rules of life. People around me are to scare to over do it and care too much about the consequences. But many friends of mine have the idea of not caring and doing whatever they please but having limits to it.

What is Social Disorganization? Social disorganization is a criminology theory that suggests the reason for crime and delinquency is due to the lack of resources in communities. When resources like churches and programs for the youth are not present in the community it can lead to a lack of morals that can cause criminal activity and delinquency. Another reason for crime and delinquency is believed to be the lack of presents of law enforcement. When law enforcement is not present in a community it gives the people in the community the thought that law enforcement does not care what happens to the people in their community.
He does not prefer to become a man because of what he might become. Holden does not want to grow up because he does not want to become a hot shot or phony. He separates himself from the hot shots. Holden isolated himself during the football game by sitting on top of the hill and watching it when “practically the whole school except me was there” (2). Holden keeps himself separated because he thinks they are a bunch of crooks and he does not like interacting with them.
Piggy’s physical difference and limited movements separate him from Ralph, as he can’t be able to get along with the adventurous and explorative ventures. This difference kind of also symbolizes the separation of Piggy from the bunch of boys later on. In terms of position and maturity level, it’s pretty obvious that Piggy is much rational and sensible than Ralph in suggesting ideas, like talking about getting organized and getting a meeting, where Ralph is just a young and naïve
For him, reality is isolation from other ‘savages’ in the reservation. However, once he comes to civilization, John the Savage begins to despise the conforming customs and traditions. John the Savage’s intension to help others sets him further apart from Marx, who only wants to help himself and improve his own life.

People may be scared to do something different because they don't know what the outcome will be; they are scared to take a chance or a risk. People may resist change because of lack of control or reward. My husband is the kind of person who is resistant to change because of lack of control. He likes to have control over things in his life and if something happens out of his control he has a hard time handling it at first. If there is a lack of reward then people may resist.

In a way Dre falls in line with differential opportunity because he joined the gang to do something and progress in life in a way, but at the same time, he didn’t join it to make money, earn wealth, or work towards the American Dream. Dre recognizes his skills and talents and isn’t happy with selling drugs and causing more harm to his community. He specifically asked for help, opportunities, and something to do that is positive.

By having more and easier access to job training or internship programs in the inner city, Dre would be able to put his talent and skills to use towards something positive and healthy.
