The regulation of social meaning
Government efforts to regulate personal behavior, such as tobacco smoking and safe sex, demonstrate that laws are not developed independent of social construction. In First Amendment case law, it has been asserted that government does not intrude on matters of politics and opinion. In fact, law and the government have developed complex methods of affecting behavior through a complex interplay of law and social meaning. The social construction techniques studied include ambiguation, tying, inhibition and ritual.
