From the international outlook, the exploitation of under-developed nations by developed countries and multi-national corporations is being monitored by international organizations- such as the United Nations, International Criminal Court, Transparency organizations etcetera, with an aim of upholding justice and fairness in all international relations, treaties and enterprises (Simon, 1993, p. 1).
At the regional arena, political patronage, corruption, violation of human rights and exploitation of the poor can be minimized by a continuous, steady and persistent implementation of constitutional policies and laws, strengthening public institutions with anti-graft units for social fairness and by educating the electorate to refine the political system (Simon, 1993, p. 1). As such, the pivotal role played by the media in educating the public of its electoral power in instituting reforms at the political arena should not be overlooked, but rather upheld through tentative legislation of media freedom policies.
The establishment of capital markets authority has proved to be an essential instrument for maintaining proper checks and balances for monopolistic companies and in regulating price tags thus ensuring that consumers are cushioned against unaccounted commodity price inflations (Simon, 1993, p. 1). Both public and private quality assurance organizations ensure that only those commodities which meet the threshold consumer satisfaction/safe standard are authorized to enter the market- this checks industrial and manufacturing companies against corporate deviance (Simon, 1993, p. 1).
The establishment of criminology as a field of sociology has also proved to be an indispensable tool for unearthing the various forms of corporate deviant dispositions, hereby sociological specialists employ it in aiding draw fair corporate justice policies, recommendations, and laws which upon implementation ensure a harmonious, just and productive society.
Observable Indicator of Self-destructive Deviance
Yes, there are observable indicators of potential self-destructive deviance, and as such he socio-environmental influence cannot be overlooked when identifying self-destructive dispositions, for instance, when young ones form juvenile gang cocoons, the associated self destructive practices such as substance abuse, robbery, ingestion of toxic substances are inevitable (Favazza,1996, p. 1).
Even at the family level, homegrown self-destructive inclinations can be characterized by eating disorders, self neglect, and sexual abuse, persistent emotional strain such as mental stress, crying, hopelessness, despair and depression (Favazza, 1996, p. 1). In most cases, individuals with self destructive inclinations tend to isolate themselves from the rest of societal entities and are normally afraid and suspicious of other people. Their conduct is marked with excessive regression, withdrawal, self acclaim and self justification. They hardly acknowledge their mistakes, but rather rationalize their conducts through varied projection devices. These mental patients hold unrealistic expectations and are emotionally disoriented.
The corruption of the mental strength is also evident in lowered self-esteem or the idealistic self-perfectionism. At the very worst, self-destructive deviance takes the form of self-injury as evident in extensive body piercing tattoos, self-poisoning and for extreme cases – suicidal attempts.
Early diagnosis of self-destructive deviance tendencies one of the aversive measures in combating self-harm before it becomes an addiction, thus, the need to strengthen the family and schooling units with educative forums on the necessary detective devices which would aid in intervention and referral measures (Favazza,1996, p. 1).
Now that many of the self-destructive dispositions result from mental-injury, it is necessary that people should uphold each other’s mental health by ensuring a favorable mental environment thrives; where one’s autonomy is honored and respected rather than one being considered to be an object of shame.
