Obinwannem News Feature article: Social vices

Vices are forms of evil, wicked and criminal actions or behaviors in the society. Vices are social problems and have been thought of as social situations that a large number of observers feel are inappropriate and need remedying. 

A vice is a moral failing or a bad habit. Traditional examples of vice include drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco, and gambling in card games. But anything can be a vice, as long as there’s someone out there who views it as bad behavior or a moral weakness. 

You might say, casually, “I don’t drink, smoke, or gamble. They include juvenile delinquency, poverty, examination malpractice, drug abuse, kidnapping, cultism, among others. The effect of these problems on society includes general disorder, deep poverty, low per capita income, unwanted pregnancy, moral decadence, etc. 

Most students commit some of the common ones (vices) include cultism, drug abuse, examination malpractice, obscene dressing, and sexual promiscuity/harassment. Vices are those acts by which a man harms himself or his property. 

Crimes are those acts by which one man harms the person or property of another. It is a maxim of the law that there can be no crime without a criminal intent; that is, without the intent to invade the person or property of another.
