Studies by Sigmond Freud, Karl Young, Gramshi, Pavlow and other historical thinkers identify causes, effects and cures for mental illness. Essentially, biological, social and physical aspects of human nature are interconnected, interrelated and interdependent. Changing and manipulating the factors creates changes in mentalities. Causes of mental illness include: insecurities, isolation, complexity, sensitivity, stress and dysfunctional relationships. In terms of the government and economics, mental illness results from an individual’s interpretation of the structure of society, the economic system and an individual’s financial place. In a capitalistic society, the income wage gap creates uncomfortable lifestyles and financial hardships for the poor, which disables the attainment of wants and needs. Poorer people in society statistically have more mental illness and trouble with medical bills than wealthier people in America. As a result, imperialism resides more strongly in the mentality of people in the lower income brackets which creates mental unrest and possible illness. Furthermore, people who have more children tend to have more money. Cures and treatments include enabling wants and needs, preventing isolation by forming healthy relationships that foster daily communication and maintaining intercourse with the outside world to prevent distorted thoughts. In addition, facing fears to foster insight from subconscious thoughts from reoccurring thought patterns can be analyzed by acting on and discussing them. Exercising a higher learning network and acting into right thinking can be beneficial for maintaining a healthy mentality. Moreover, the evolution of humans from homo sapiens throughout the timeline provides the conclusion that communication with advanced language causes the production of technologies more quickly, efficiently and effectively. Prayer may help the organization of thought, but does not necessarily work in the same way as communication to rehabilitate and improve the overall human’s wellbeing. Governmental revolutions occur when people from the bottom of the system come together to explain a problem and request a solution. Together, people conclude based on facts and take action to make a favorable difference. Communication, determination and effort have potential to combine to reflect changes in the wage gap, improvements in the mentality of individuals and an overall benefit to the welfare of the nation.
