0009. What does Durkheim's line "…even in a society of angels" a single feather being out of line would be a crime mean?

A. In a community with a very high degree of conformity, smaller and smaller deviations become labeled as crime/deviance. B. It does not offend because it is a crime, it is a crime because it offends the collective consciousness. C. In any community, positive ideals are the source of what gets attended to as a violation of the rules. D. Deviance is natural even if relative and so we expect it to be universal. E. Metaphorically, orderly wing feathers are the core of social order for angels and so that's where we expect to find deviance.
