The functionalist believe that the understanding of deviance is the function for society rather than individuals themselves. Even though they believe that consensus is a function required for society. Functionalists therefore, argue that it is important for society to maintain society and the social control.

Merton 1930,highlights the strains between the cultural goals of society and legitimate and regular ways to achieving the goals of success.

There is evidence of moral, social, and spiritual allegory on numerous occasions although, spiritual feels like it is the most evident. This book shows the true nature of humans to the tee. Humans have two classifications and that is good and evil. Today's society is based on order and structure. Money, social classes, is how we separate the different ideas and traits that make us all different.
Starting with the Functional Theory, this theory explains the every aspect of our society is interdependent and is necessary for our society to function as one or a whole. It also explains that our society is held together through social cohesion and consensus, where we as members of society work together and agree with each other to achieve what would benefit society the most and what would be our society’s best interest. Functionalism argues that if it is not a useful purpose in our society then it will be phased out from one generation to the next generation. This perspective would see that the purpose of social networking has and is every becoming useful in our society because it use and prevalence continues to increase, the Functional perspective see social networking as a way to enforce
− Is it necessary? − Constructing hierarchy − Constructing inequality through ideology − ideology: a set of beliefs and values − typically, that are a worldview, or that explain a worldview − often (not always) characteristic of a culture: shared ideas about how the world works, and shared values about what is good, bad, appropriate, etc. − Most or all societies have an ideology that naturalizes their social organization − makes it seem normal, reasonable, necessary, natural − ideologies are emic − they are ideas that the people in a society have about their own society − how they see their own cultural world − Some societies have ideology of equality − such as the Ju/’hoansi − most societies societies today have ideologies of inequality Intro to Cultural Anthro S 2011 / Owen: Social and economic hierarchies p. 5 − that is, they have an ideology that naturalizes inequality − makes differences in status, prestige, wealth, power, etc. seem normal, right, natural, inevitable − that allow people to construct and think about ranked categories in ways that
This could lead to society being more cooperative, as people comprehend that everyone is of equal value to society, regardless of the role they fulfil. This could in turn lead to a more respectful and happier society, as people live in harmony and respect others and are respected. 'Organic society' could lead to greater role fulfilment. People who feel they perform inconsequential roles in society will understand that they are equally integral to society. This will give them a greater sense of identity and rootedness.
How did it get to this point? A background in elitism according to Abramowitz stems from the ideology of self reliance and personal freedom. The main idea is that the individual is responsible for themselves in order to achieve the greatness that they desire. The main issue is that those who achieve restrict those who are not at their level from being heard. The counter to elitism are the theories of egalitarianism and populism, which are doctrines in which they support the rights and powers of the common people in their ongoing struggle with the political elitism, they believe that all people are equal.
Furthermore, item A also says, "sociologists see the education system as performing a vital role in modern societies." One functionalist called Durkheim holds this view; he believes in social solidarity and specialist skills. Durkheim argues that society needs a sense of solidarity so that it's individual members feel themselves to be part of a single community. He argues that without social solidarity, social life and cooperation would be impossible because each individual would pursue their own selfish desires. The education system helps to create social solidarity by transmitting society's culture from one generation to the next.
This idea plays well in hand with the principle that cultures and ethnic identities are formed with shared values and preferences. In Putnam’s multicultural society, co-ethnics and non co-ethnics each share their values and ideals amongst each other for a greater common good—the betterment of society. By contributing different skillsets and viewpoints, social capital in a particular population will increase over time, which ultimately increases trust beyond certain ethnic groups that will lead to even more cooperation and meshing between non co-ethnic groups in the
Stereotypes are not fact, they are just biased opinions people base on each other. The only way to really know how a person is to get to know them yourself and then form an opinion or thought about who they are. Relationships are powerful especially in the work place, that is why it is important to not let stereotypes affect your relationship with others. Our one-to-one connections with each other are the foundation for change. And building relationships with people from different cultures is key in building diverse communities that are powerful enough to achieve significant goals.
