A high frequency of deviant behavior is not generated merely by lack of opportunity or by this exaggerated pecuniary emphasis.  A comparatively rigidified class structure, a caste order, may limit opportunities far beyond the point which obtains in American society today.  It is when a system of cultural values extols, virtually above all else, certain common success-goals for the population at large while the structure rigorously restricts or completely closes access to approved modes of reaching these goals for a considerable part of the same population, that deviant behavior ensues on a large scale (1968, p. 200).
