WHY IS OUR SOCIETY OBSESSED WITH LABELS?

Humans tend to label everything.

Schütz had concerns on "dialectical relationship between the way people construct social reality and the obdurate social and cultural reality that they inherit from those who preceded them in the social world"

Schütz writes: "Whitin the in-group the bulk of personal types and course-of-action types is taken for granted (until counter-evidence appears) as a set of rules and recipes which have stood the test so far and are expected to stand it in the future. Even more, the pattern of typical constructs is frequently institutionalized as a standard of behaviour warranted by traditional and habitual mores and sometimes by specific means of so-called social control, such as the legal order."

However, it is not about labels, it is about choices we make that defines who we are.
