In stage 1, children comply with authority out of fear. Leaving the assumption that something is viewed morally correct if punishment is avoided. Therefore, individuals that did not progress through this stage will think that their criminal behavior is acceptable as long as they go unpunished for the criminal act.
In stage two children define what is right by having their needs satisfied; defining what is right if they are not punished for it (stage 1) and it satisfies their needs. What is right or wrong is whether or not they get punished and their needs were satisfied (Taylor, Fritsch, & Liederbach, 2015).

    At first I was not a fan of Mitnick, but later I started to warm up to him a tad. Overall, I enjoyed this video and found it to be very informative.

The KKK was no different trying to scare by burning a cross in your yard then to only come back and kill everyone they were trying to scare. The fact that our own government had a terrorist group walking American streets is disturbing. We are supposed to be “The land of the Free”, but how can you be free when crazy psychopaths are dressed in sheets, threatening to kill anyone that will support an African American.…

    Nowadays, the media focuses on business rather than trustiness and credibility. As a matter of fact, media spreads false information about Muslims and practices propaganda. For example, media relates any terrorist event in Europe or USA to Muslims in order to ruin the reputation of Islam, and this automatically led to the diffusion of the phenomenon. Relating the suicide attacks that were held in London 2005, by 4 British Muslims that led to the murder of 52 citizens to Islam is a great example (CNN library, 2014, para.1).
