Some nonsmokers view smoking as an undesirable social condition that should be banned or restricted in public buildings.
Every newspaper is filled with stories about undesirable social conditions.
While every crime violates the law, not every violation of the law counts as a crime; for example: breaches of contract and of other civil law may rank as “offences” or as “infractions”.
Modern societies generally regard crimes as offenses against the public or the state, distinguished from (offenses against private parties that can give rise to a civil cause of action).
Other social problems may be viewed as such by certain groups of people.
Teenagers who play loud music in a public park obviously do not view it as a problem, but some other people may consider it an undesirable social condition.
Such social problems can be found at the local, state, national and international levels.Social issues are matters which directly or indirectly affect many or all members of a society and are considered to be problems, controversies related to moral values, or both.Social Problems is the official publication of the The Society for the Study of Social Problems.Authorities employ various mechanisms to regulate (encouraging or discouraging) certain behaviors in general.Governing or administering agencies may for example codify rules into laws, police citizens and visitors to ensure that they comply with those laws, and implement other policies and practices which legislators or administrators have prescribed with the aim of discouraging or preventing crime.
