The justified and constant need for equity, proportionally, the perfect interaction of individual socio-psychological factors, social, political, ideological and religious factors, a less important role of culture, the existence of real identity problems corroborated with the effects of traumas, of other mechanisms triggering anti-social behaviors, as well as the need for group membership, its dynamics, psycho-radicalizing factors / manipulators, and the role played by the diversity of social networks, all these require the immediate, justified intervention of the state entitled to implement and guarantee the enforcement of the law in a multidisciplinary manner.The reality of the rise of social nonconformism - an identified cause of radicalization, with unfavorable social consequences - generates responses from legal bodies and, with specialists in law and science being called upon to provide solutions to questions arising from an obvious social rebound:What are the causes that contribute, generate and augment this social phenomenon?Is there a uniqueness in approaching the causality of the phenomenon?Are there viable solutions legally, and at the social level should be applied to diminish this phenomenon?
