This week I’d like you to consider the sociological concept of deviance. Below is a link to the article I posted as your reading assignment discussing the recent events relating to foreign governments being asked to help influence US elections. https://www.npr.org/2019/06/13/732340501/fact-check-foreign-interference-and-opposition-research-are-not-the-same
Identify an act from this article that would be considered deviant. Describe the act and why you believe the act was deviant? What is the norm that was violated? Was anyone harmed by this act? Were there any sanctions?
You are welcome to consult other sources in researching these events, if you’d like. If you do, please just list the sources you viewed at the bottom of your assignment. If you’re interested in reading more about this, message me. I’ll be happy to send you some more links to sociological analyses of these events.
