RE: Are We Born Criminals? Part II: The Rational Choice Theory
Hi dysfunctional, this is a very complete and interesting treatise on criminal psychology. I would like to tell you what I think about criminals. Something I feel is one powerful factor and perhaps the main reason why there are so manny criminals in the world. (Swallow before saying, trying to find the right words). Have you noticed that an overwhelming majority of people in the world don't have a point of view and their thoughts and actions are just imitation of others'? Have you seen that the world has been and is still being manipulated by those who possess the biggest part of the economic power, a few people? isn't it possible that those who commit crime are just manipulated into it by those rich people who, through mass media, induce all kinds of vices, illnesses and crimes in order to better control the peoples? If my hypothese (if I may call it so) is proved right we could consider that most of the criminals are not born as such but created with the ambicious purpose of keeping a chaotic world which is a more profitable one. Am I any far from reality? Maybe I'm wrong. I'd be thankful to have an answer about this point. -- Thanks for your article, congratulations for your very interesting approach in this topic and thanks for reading this comment.
