"The uneven impact of actual enforcement measures tends to mirror and
reinforce more general patterns of discrimination (along socioeconomic,
racial and ethnic, sexual, and perhaps generational lines) within the
society. As a consequence, such enforcement (ineffective as it may be
in producing conformity) almost certainly reinforces feelings of
alienation already prevalent within major segments of the population."
