The quotation above is the dialogue between Ralph and Samneric (twin). It shows that they still care with Ralph, because they were part of Ralph 's group before. They ask Ralph go escape far away because Jack will be killed tomorrow. The above quote also mention about forgetting common sense and also a chief. It shows that they 're no longer thinking based on logic or based on the superego. Superego is one of the aspects in human that can make a person behave in accordance with the rules. And Ralph is no longer a chief. It means the superego was replaced by Jack, who acts by follow his inner desire which is Thanatos.
Tyler Durden and the narrator want to better a society they think is flawed. By breaking down today’s materialistic culture and destroying the concept of racism obviously goes against US values, but true equality and personal freedom are both US values Tyler Durden harps on. All in all “Fight Club” showes viewers that if you strip everybody down and take away our overly priced goods, and focused on our true biological beings that our society would be better of. Us as human beings have urges but the social contract theory keeps us in line “Fight Club” make viewer wonder what would happen if we could be absolutely free, and is personal freedom the basis of the US values actually

In the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a group of men living in a psychiatric ward are dealing with different types of disorders. The character that I chose to observe and analyze was Billy Bibbit. Billy is a young man who struggles to speak without stuttering and make his own decisions. He seeks approval from those around him and is always worried he will disappoint those around him. Although some people at this psychiatric ward are committed, Billy is a voluntary patient. This means that he can leave whenever he feels comfortable. Billy choses to stay because he not ready to make his own responsible decisions in life.

The narrator in Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man functions according to his psychological state of mind. Ellison creates the narrator with his own, unique mind, paralleling with the effect he has on the environment and his peers. The narrator's underdeveloped unconscious mind, as well as the constant clashes he has with his unconscious and conscious thoughts, lead him to a straight path of invisibility. Although physical factors also play a role in affecting the narrator's decisions, psychological traits primarily shape the narrator to become an “invisible man”.
What are some thoughts that come to mind when a person brings up the word schizophrenia? According to Ford-Martin, “Schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder or group of disorders marked by disturbances in thinking, emotional responsiveness, and behavior” (2139).

Superego is a part of the brain or conscience that recognizes inappropriate behavior and also wants you to choose right over wrong. One of Freud’s theories is that the “Id – Ego combination dominates a person’s behavior until social awareness leads to the emergence of the superego, which recognizes that
Ken Kesey uses his novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, to describe the lives of patients in a mental institution, and their struggle to overcome the oppressive authority under which they are living. Told from the point of view of a supposedly mute schizophrenic, the novel also shines a light on the many disorders present in the patients, as well as how their illnesses affect their lives during a time when little known about these disorders, and when patients living with these illnesses were seen as an extreme threat. Chief Bromden, the narrator of the novel, has many mental illnesses, but he learns to accept himself and embrace his differences. Through the heroism introduced through Randle McMurphy, Chief becomes confident in himself, and is ultimately able to escape from the toxic environment Nurse Ratched has created on the ward. Chief has many disorders including schizophrenia, paranoia, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder, and, in addition to these illnesses, he pretends to be deaf and dumb. This combination of many mind and life altering diagnoses leads to an interesting point of view, and a deeper look into the lives of people living with the
Today, many of our perceptions are deceived by systemic stereotypes, often fogging our own ability understand ourselves. This is what suppresses the main character, and a group of other members, in David Fincher’s Fight Club. In the film, both male and female characters are stereotypical and overly sexualized. The film is extremely generalized and Fincher accomplishes this by presenting the characters with no desire to come against the reality of gender norms. The conventions that are held as a standard in the film are the orthodox characteristics of how men are supposed to appear. The director uses hyper masculinity and tyrannical control as the catalyst to the perspective that their identity is a subconscious power struggle for self-identification.

Another way that Jim Stevens used symbolism in the poem Schizophrenia, was by using the appearance of the house on not only the inside but also the outside to represent the way outsiders see the family as opposed to the way the family actually is. The outside of the house is representing what the family is showing to others, they do not put up a perfect front, but it is not nearly as hurt as the inside. In reality, the inside of the house is what the whole family is really dealing with, and what it actually looks and feels like to have schizophrenia. The inside of the house is talked about much more than the outside because Jim Stevens wants the reader to understand that the family is hurting from the schizophrenia on the inside and trying

Response to: What would you change about the mental health system after seeing “Skid Row”? (meaning resources for individuals with mental illness.) (King 2010)
The cell was dark and dreary as the prisoner sat with shackles gripped against his bitter cold hands. Three weeks, three weeks since he had been charged of robbery. Now, here he was stuck in a torturous place. Had the robbery gone perfectly to plan he would be on an island basking in the sun but, alas that was not what happened. There was absolutely nothing to do expect to stare at a wall. So, he became dreadfully bored His eyes drifted to a dark world for a little bit. However, when he opened his eyes instead of seeing a prison cell he saw he was on a beach with sand that was smooth and warm and crystal blue oceans. The man threw his head back and gave out a loud and hearty laugh. In truth, the prisoner did not suddenly teleport from his prisoner cell to a beach. He was simply hallucinating. In truth, people experience an emotion call boredom which can lead to hallucinations. Boredom should be an emotion avoided because boredom can cause dangerous and possibly deadly acts can lead to physical health issues and can lead to mental problems.
