The social norms or laws provide guidelines & order upon the behavior of the society.
The lack of these social norms or laws will have a negative impact on the conduct of the society.
There will be a lot of injustice in a society without social norms or laws. This is because most
people will behave in an ethical manner since there is no law prohibiting them to behave that
way. In addition, there would be more chaos since life would be survival of the fittest &
everyman for himself (Hechter et al, 2005).
Lack of social norms will lead to conflicts among the society members. These conflicts
will arise due to scramble for the available resources. Some individual with authority will
intentionally grab other peoples’ property such as land because of selfish interest. This will lead
no chaos and wars with no place to resolve them. The instances of theft will also increase
abnormally. The chaos can lead to injuries and deaths.
In addition, lack of laws or social norms would lead to an increase in immorality in the
society. The immoral individuals would be aware that there is no law prohibiting them from
engaging in immoral activities. The instances of rape, adultery, incest, fornication etc. will
increase at a high rate. This immoral behavior will lead to unwanted pregnancies and infections
of sexually transmitted diseases. This behavior will violate the rights of many children and
women who are perceived to be weak and unable to protect themselves and fight for their rights
in such society.

Many societies and social associations have conventions and these are educated
characteristics. These attributes are passed on to every age. Alongside these characteristics, some
of them could be freak conduct. There are a few societies who prepare and enable kids to shoot
strike rifles. A few societies trust that once a young lady begins her menstrual cycle, she is then
mature enough to wed. There are situations where these young ladies are as youthful as preyoungsters (Smyth, 2008).
The majorities of deviant behavior are caused by the differences in the norms observed
from one society to the other. In the present world, the vast majorities of deviant behaviors
include theft, sexual misconduct, corruption, assault, dressing code, violation of an order etc. The
perception differs from one society to the other, and in the context of time and place. It is
actually relative. For instance, for a lady to put on a trouser can be a deviant behavior in a
particular society while in another society, the same can be perceived to be normal and
acceptable. The violation of traffic rules is also another common deviant behavior. In most cases,
the drivers are not allowed to drive under the influence of alcohol, over-speeding, over-lapping at
any location and so on.
Behaviors that are not infringing upon the law or that do violate the law yet are issues
like stopping in an incapacitate spot when you don't have the privilege to do as such are simply
viewed as inconveniences and inconsiderate. They are not as degenerate as carrying out a
deplorable sex wrongdoing or looting somebody at gunpoint.

There is a wide range of theoretical models for deviant behavior, the reason for deviant
conduct, and the desistence of deviant conduct. I trust this is because of there are such huge
