CRITIQUE of functionalism
- Far too posative and simplistic
- Ignore victims of crime!
- Only focus on monitary crimes E.g not vandalism
- Assumes a value consensus
- Not everybody wants material sucess
- Ignores non-utilitarian crime (no finnancial gain)
- Ignores Faiths E.g Buddists are not materialistic
- Dosen't explain why some are innovators and some are retreatists etc...
- Law represents everyone? NO, represents only certain groups
