"Throughout the 20th century there were many institutions that were built up in the name of creating the great society. Mental health was at the forefront of these institutions after the trauma that people experienced in World War 2. People were and still are undergoing a process that is separating them from the natural world.
Those who couldn't handle these changes were taken out of society and often experimented on like caged animals.
This is part of the nightmare of the Modernist culture or what we might call the American dream. Many of these institutions have now been abandoned but the imprint they left behind still lingers. As we move further into the 21st century the ghosts from the last century are still haunting our collective psyche.
