Positive and Negative Deviance
There are different types of deviance Positive and Negative deviance. Positive deviance is deviance that helps society move forward such as with Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. If not for some deviance acts America would not have been able to become better. Sometimes deviance is a good thing. Another type of deviance is Negative deviance, Negative deviance is deviance that hurts people such as murder, rape, or theft. Even though this deviance hurts people, without it the world would not be able to function properly. On an economic stand point especially, deviance is necessary along with in many other areas. Just imagine what would happen if we no longer needed police or politicians. So basically until the world ends there will be deviance.
