People often believe that bullies are individual sadists in society, who seek pleasure from other’s despair. Due to this common misconception, people fail to understand that an average citizen can become a bully based on the circumstantial factors in an atmosphere (Zimbardo, Lucifer). Various psychological experiments have proven that bullying occurs due to the presence of specific social factors in an environment. Anonymity is a primary social factor which promotes bullying, since it creates a lack of empathy in an atmosphere. The ignorance of authority figures is another social factor which causes bullying since it creates an acceptable environment for victimization.
Psychodynamic Aspect Antisocial personality disorder is mainly characterized by the sufferer’s flagrant disregard of other individuals’ rights. (Hansel & Damour, 2008). In other words, people with antisocial personality disorder are insensitive to other people’s feelings and interests; instead they solely focus on their own interests and feelings alone. Individuals with this disorder do not feel remorse or guilt for their wrong doings. The Psychodynamic application and treatment of antisocial personality disorder is linked with the assumption that the sufferers are born into dysfunctional families with physical abuse tendencies, cruel, and are emotionally turbulent (Akhtar, 1992).
Although Sullivan feels that this definition is not the final definition of hate, but it serves to better define the word and helps understand the true meaning behind the word. Sullivan has more of a problem with hate crimes than he does with the word hate. He feels that hate serves as a “blanket” since it does not refer to the acts of an individual but it serves to make it refer to a general group of people instead (Sullivan 315). He provides the interesting insight that any “sense of belonging is followed by an unequal sense of unbelonging” (Sullivan 309). This seems to be a direct result of our strange tendency to classify people, objects, and even ourselves.
Underreporting occurs due to individuals being dishonest regarding their behavior, therefore causing an error in the research done. A possible solution to this limitation is focusing on observed behavior, and correlating the findings with the self-reporting behavior, therefore developing a conclusion that is more in-depth. Furthermore, Article 2 emphasized that other factors can influence self-labeling as a victim in relation to work-place bullying, not just anxiety and anger. In addition, discovering a moderation effect regarding negative acts of violence and self-labeling is hard to discover due to the psychological way an individual may experience an event. Lastly, Article 3 honed on the lack of variances of deviant behavior.

The robber, in this case, made the decision to commit this crime, and upon getting caught, or being seen, must suffer the consequences of being deemed evil, because someone who is out for the greater good of people and society as a whole, wouldn’t be stealing anything from anyone for personal gains. The last example I will give in regards to evil being present in so many different ways is the touchy subject of child molestation. Everything about child molestation is evil and inhumane, so my view on the matter can be seen right there. The people who commit these crimes may not have been evil in their life leading up to the crime, however, once a thought like that comes to mind, only bad things can happen from there on out, affirming that evil is a part of us, and it is our choice whether to carry out things that most people wouldn’t dare of doing, such as molesting a young
Meursault’s actions closely resemble sociopathic behavior, leading some to believe that his is a threat to society. Although Meursault could be considered a sociopath due to some of the behaviors he exhibits, he does not present with the deceitful and charming characteristics of a standard sociopath. When analyzing the definition of a sociopath, Meursault displays several characteristics associated with sociopathic behavior. According to Depressive Psychological Disorders, sociopaths are generally defined as “people displaying anti social behavior which is mainly characterized by lack of empathy towards others that is coupled with display of abnormal moral conduct and inability to conform with the norms of society” (Sociopath 1). On several occasions, Meursault fails to accept the pre-established rules of society.
Social disorganization creates negative attributes of social control in racial or ethnic groups through normal convention means of unreliable support to enable individuals to resist from committing illegal actions. This type of dysfunctional aspect allows individuals to experience negativity within communities that reduces the desire or motivation factors needed to maintain social organization and conventional (contemporary) characteristics. Social disorganization is created by immoral dedication or partnership from community population
Empathy is just having the ability to relate to someone but actually feeling bad for them. Evil in the flesh isn’t just someone incapable of empathy its more of a way someone was taught to be or of a family background, such as a generational curse. This lack of empathy does give off the violence of Winston’s world and 911, which equates to evil. During the incident of 911, a group of people called terrorist formed an act of violence towards the United States. This group evil action didn’t come naturally, they were taught everything they knew.
Debates about punishment are important in their own right, but they also raise more general problems about the proper standards for evaluating social practices. The main part of this theoretical overview of the subject of legal punishment concentrates on these issues of justification. That discussion is preceded by an analysis of the concept of punishment and is followed by a brief account of how theories for justifying punishment can relate to decisions about the substantive criminal law and criminal procedures. The concept of punishment Punishment is not an exclusive province of the law. Parents punish their children, and members of private associations punish their wayward fellows.
