By the ever expanding definitions of mental illness in the fields of psychology, you would be hard pressed to find anybody in the entire world who
doesn't by definition suffer from some form of mental illness. This is because it has become human nature to classify anyone who might think out or
believe in different things as "wrong". Unacceptable of alternative beliefs, people will be incapable of accepting their own wrongness of a
situation or that some things simply do not have a cut and dry answer. They will seek to label a problem to make themselves feel better.
Naturally, there are TRUE mental illnesses in which the brain ceases to function in a normal capacity, but I believe most everybody has the abilities
to recognize these characteristic. In fact, it is the stronger cases of mental illnesses in which people take pity and practice humility towards,
while the mental illnesses that seemingly infect all of us are ignored or made fun of.
With that said, you have quite a proclamation that we are all mentally ill, but to say that we are all afraid is just simply wrong. I, for example,
have ceased to fear anything from death to imprisonment. I'm sure there are many other likes me who instead of being afraid are rather anxiously
awaiting the end of the world. Why? Because the world is terrible. Or rather, the people on this world are terrible. The easiest way to make people
realize the error of their ways and to change their egotistical and megalomaniac ways is to put them all in a situation where there are tested to the
very depths of their character and are purged should they decide to continue on the path they are on.
It isn't so much that we "fear" the end of the world as we know it, but I'm sure I speak for many people when I say that we YEARN for it.
