A

Answer: A. Creating a social atmosphere in which the law is a mechanism for controlling have-not members of society.

Going with the conflict theory, social and economic factors are considered as the causes of deviance and crime. Conflict theorists see these factors as causing a negative impact on the society and evidence of inequality in the general system. According to Karl Max, the population of the world was divided into the bourgeois (the wealthy and controllers of the production system) and the proletariat (the workers very dependent on the former for survival). The former controls power and influences the government with the latter being the bearers of these laws.
