In psychiatric descriptions of criminal insanity, clinicians often use concepts about schizophrenia and depression to understand and characterize the perceived malice, wrath, and gluttony of criminals.
Since psychologists understand that mental states are often individuated consciously and subconsciously, it is important to differentiate social perceptions of criminal malice, criminal wrath, with criminal gluttony, etc. in the clinical manuals.
For example, it is important to note that a criminal who exhibits malice (i.e., shoplifter badmouthing arresting cop) may not be necessarily terrifying to society. However, a criminal who exhibits wrath (i.e., rage coupled with armed assault) indicates a volatile mental state that can indeed give way to actualized violence.
Do these clinical differentiations of criminal insanity tolerance reflect the symbolic psychological value of mind flux Hollywood (USA) movies such as "The Rage: Carrie 2" (1999)?
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
