Social solidarity is essentially where we, as a society, are unified by our shared norms and values. Which means as a collective conscience, we stand as one big interconnected community.


Hope it helps

Well you could argue that in crime and punishment, the judiciary system of punishing deviants encourages social solidarity, because all of the non-deviants collectively condemn the wrongdoer, which re-affirms societal values and further strengthens the solidarity of society?

I study Sociology, is there a certain topic you're on right now? - I might be able to give you an example more relevant to that topic...

Ah okay, well you can therefore say that the educational system acts as a form of secondary socialisation of individuals, reinforcing the societal norms and values to reach a shared understanding. Which in turn leads to social solidarity both internally, and in the context of wider society.

Sorry to be a bit annoying but would you be able to give a small, short definition on what collective conscience is? Thank you so much in advance!
