problems in society that arouse negative behaviors from society members remind different societies about the need to develop measures for obeying social norms and practices in daily interaction (Su, Chiu, Lin, & Oishi, 2016). The ideal way of minimizing deviant behaviors in society is the introduction of mutual monitoring and sanctioning. The solution is useful in any society since it encourages and sustains cooperation among groups from various involved societies. Monitoring and sharing the necessary information by the involved groups is an essential way of detecting deviance and pro-sociality, thus comprising a crucial form of social control. It develops some form of cooperation within the society, which resembles public evaluation for enhancing cooperative behaviors. Social control entails the means to prevent behaviors that violate social norms. The historical solutions focused on revolution on the various perspectives people had about social norms. However, the present solutions are more about positivism in encouraging changes in various activities.
