One of the most controversial perspectives of criminological thought is called radical or critical criminology; which posits, in short, that capitalism causes severe inequality between two groups, the upper class (bourgeoisie), and the lower class (proletariat). Politicians, corporations, and special interests are the elite, the powerful, the well-to-do and subsequently one’s whose voice really matters when it comes to making laws. Thus, their agenda is to ensure that the law has their interests at heart and not the impoverished masses. Hence, white collar crime is much less prosecuted than “other” crime, even though it impacts many more people.
For this post, I want you to reflect on the current state of national and international affairs (occupy wall street, Arab spring, European debt crisis etc.) and give the class your thoughts, whatever they might be.
Do you believe that radical criminology is correct in its basic assumptions? Why or why not?
