How do the social institutions of our country (e.g., schools, the healthcare system, the economy, religious organizations) play a role in encouraging social conformity, as well as social deviance? Please state in your own words?
Social institutions impact on personal views and reform character. For example people who follow a certain religion will tend to behave and act according to the doctrines of their religion; they will follow the values associated with that social institution. The belief in the values observed by the social institutions lead to social conformance.
