INTRODUCTION
 When all members of society adhere to the society's norms, mores, values, rules, and
regulations, the society is called organised, ensuring the welfare and well-being of all
members.
 When the society cannot sustain such laws and norms owing to various causes, it produces
a state of disorder and instability in the society, which negatively influences the social
system's smooth operation.
 All members of an organised community who obey the laws and standards are
distinguished by sincerity, obedience, and loyalty.
 There are times when people's minds have been programmed to violate or reject such
established standards or conventions.
 As a result, social disorder, misbehaviour, and pathologies emerge.
