In our research, we focused on testing the following hypothesis. Individuals with a stronger tendency toward social justification are more likely to endorse limiting people’s freedom of action. This support may be driven by their perception that the social system’s established roles, norms, and rules should take precedence and serve as the guiding principles for maintaining order and cohesion. Therefore, we asked, “People’s freedom of action should be limited as much as possible.”
The data provides some thought-provoking insights. Among respondents who “strongly agree” with the statement, the average SJS score is 20.29. For those who “agree,” the score remains relatively high at 19.70. However, as we move to those who “disagree” or “strongly disagree,” we observe a gradual decline in SJS scores to 18.19 and 16.96, respectively. Even among those who “agree” with the statement, SJS scores remain relatively high at 19.70. This suggests that a significant proportion of respondents who support the idea of restricting freedom still show a strong tendency to justify the current social order.
The data invite reflection on the coexistence of personal freedom and societal constraints. It raises important questions about how individuals perceive and rationalize societal structures and the role of individual beliefs in shaping their attitudes toward the existing social order.
