Scholars in political studies, criminology, psychology, sociology, and other social sciences assess the forms social control will take in the future. What role will the law, the mass media, or behaviour modification have in preventing socially undesirable actions or guiding the course of society? What will be subject to social control in the future? What will its impact be on specific institutions, the family, education, and politics? Social control of some sort is necessary: when does it begin to interfere with freedom?
