Excerpt from Personality and Conduct

The primary object of social regulation is to protect the individual members of society from the invasive acts of each other. The need for this regulation is accentuated by the conflicting elements in human nature which require some adjustment. In other words, the individual must be protected in a measure from himself as well as from others.

It is, however, imperative that social regulation should not be carried too far, for it is likely to give rise to evils greater than those which it prevents. The development of personality is of supreme importance to mankind, because richness of personality contributes greatly to the joy and happiness of life. The spontaneous expression of human nature should therefore be encouraged in order to bring to fruition as far as possible the inherent potentialities of the individual. Excessive social regulation checks unduly the spontaneity of human nature.

The most drastic form of social control is exercized through the criminal law. I have discussed criminological problems at great length in other treatises.
