The inner control is your inner voice that you hear that stops you from doing things that are not considered norms by others. The outer control is the people that you are around try to keep you from doing things that would not be norms in their eyes.

Anxiety can also change ones cognitive thought processes, causing them to question various aspects of their lives, even if they have no direct effect on them, or it the effect would not occur for a while. Anxious people have difficulty handling the unknown, often feel they are going crazy, and feel trapped. It is important to identify these behaviors and physical symptoms in oneself and in others to avoid a potentially dangerous situation and to prevent one from allowing their anxiety to become uncontrollable or to find someone help if it is already becoming too
Though there are good intentions, history has taught people that judging others can lead to negative consequences. As Allen states, in distinguishing people by labeling, “efforts to address difference can arouse negative feelings from members of nondominant and dominant groups” (Allen 6). Therefore, people need to be aware of how they are judging others, as sometimes, the judgments can be too harsh or rude instead of helpful. It is natural for someone to group others based on how they present themselves in order to make sense of who that someone is and what the situation is. It is not natural, however, to label others for the intentions of being rude.
For instance, you believe you will fail an examination so you do not study and fail the examination. Another distortion called should statement. We have a list of ironclad rules about how others and we should behave. People who break the rules make us angry, and we feel guilty when we violate these rules.

Society shouldn’t make use of the law or moral condemnation to make adjustments to someone’s behavior, unless the person causing he ... ... middle of paper ... ...ents within themselves as well.
Censorship is a subjective concept because what one individual may deem unlaw and inappropriate, another may be completely unaffected.. By censoring certain things within society, whether it be violence or something small like an advertisement it still infringes on person’s right to view content. Censoring specific things causes conflict and creates a barrier between the truth that surrounds the topic censored and the reality of said topic. Blocking content acts much a cushion; stopping the reality of a subject by covering up the negative aspects of it up. It creates a false sense truth for those viewing censored items because what they believe to be right isn’t exactly the full truth, rather only a fraction of
A norm is a social guideline for how we think, feel, or act. Norms are violated on a daily basis, but what sets the norm violations apart is the severity of them. A norm violation would be considered not as serious if it is something like burping and farting in public. While doing this in public may offend someone, it is usually forgiven or ignored. Then there are violations that are more severe that can damage the ethics or morals of people in a certain society or native culture.
In Cass Sunsten’s book entitled, Laws of Fear: Beyond the Precautionary Principle, Sunstein discusses the shortcomings of the Precautionary Principle. Sunstein expresses that the Precautionary Principle does not just lead to bad outcomes, but that it can be paralyzing. He articulates how governments or regulatory groups must protect against potential harmful things even if it is unknown that these harms will actually come to be. He sees that risk exist in all social situations, but precautionary steps also can create their own dangers. Depending on culture, different types of risk are focused upon.
