Wacquant perspective is influenced by the Marxist belief. There is also influence of Bourdeau that is observed in the views propagated in the societies. Essentially, capitalistic greed is the reason for the societies to have a high power distance index. This causes the whole system to be flawed (Linden, 1996). Justice is not rendered equally to all the people in the society. This is clearly viewed in the ideologies elucidated by Waquant. This is seen to be manifesting itself in many forms. Societal conformities are seen driven by these ideologies of economics. According to Wacquant’s perspective, he considers the contemporary capitalistic societies to stigmatize economical downtrodden people. There is marginalization of people in the societies. This is also undercurrent racial bias that is observed in this bureaucratic field. This has lead to the overall system being in the flaws (Linden, 1996). Certain factions of the society are pushed to be marginalized.
This creates a situation where they have to succumb to the pressure and commit crimes. This has led to the overall issues in the bureaucratic field. The power is wielded in such a way that the people are forced to indulge in criminal activities for sustenance. Law and the political system also seem to turn a blind eye against the people. Economic capital and racial discrimination is seen to be the system that is driving the societies. There is also a social stigma against people who are economically downtrodden. Owing to the disproportionation of capitals in the different factions of the society, bias in the society, radical notions and marginalization of certain factions in the society there have been apprehension in the societies regarding the manner in which crimes are handled. Critical criminology provides insights about the various reasons for which people involve themselves in crimes (Linden, 1996). It is understood that the reasons for committing crime is based on the subjective reasoning of the individuals. Nevertheless, there are some common causative reasons for people to indulge themselves in crime (Linden, 1996).
