Answer one of the following three questions. Your response should be treated as an assignment.
1. What is labelling theory and further discuss how someone who has been convicted of a crime and has served his/her sentence may diminish the impact of the label of “ex-con”.
2. Max Weber (1864 – 1920) demonstrated in The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism that capitalism is a rational system and that it is likely here to stay. He showed how a “religious ethic” grew into a “work ethic”. He also claimed that deviance is reflected in activities and attitudes that challenge capitalism. Discuss fully the development of modern capitalism and show how its relationship to both John Calvin and Calvinism and Martin Luther and Lutheranism was a clear manifestation of religious ideas. Also demonstrate what the “Protestant Ethic” defines as deviant or antithetical to the capitalist ideal in Canada.
3. Karl Marx believed that the system of capitalism itself produces deviance, because it dehumanizes workers and causes alienation. Discuss fully how capitalism causes alienation and illustrate by using examples from the film McLibel.
