In my opinion, in total institutions a privatization is formed, areserved world of its own where rules are more important for people, a worldwhere the continuous objective is reform. Although many tests and experimentsfrom those institutions are merciless and generate physical pain andpsychological damage, they have been made to solve other issues, so people willnot commit them again or find proper and efficient solutions, eventually evenlong lasting.
First of all, some of the institutions I truly appreciate are theones that help the people that lost hope, the helpless ones: old people thatcannot take care of themselves properly anymore or do not have any relative tolook after them, orphans as another example as well; the ones that without thehelp of other people cannot survive such as the blind and the poor, the onesthat actually need and deserve this sort of help. The people that work forthose institutions are required to have a lot of patience, thus provingkindness and selflessness by choosing to take care of the ones in need – evenif it is surchargable, it is still remarkable. Second of all, the otherinstitutions that take care of people that I admire are the ones that help andprovide support to disabled and mentally ill people, such as psychiatrichospitals and other specialised institutions in treating tuberculosis, leprosy.Those people that are affected by these kind of diseases cannot be blended inwith the others, as they can cause damage, as a mentally ill man cannot controlhis actions properly, thus ending up physically hurting the others around him.I find it quite revolting the fact that people have to be witnesses to some ofthe experiments, even if they do not have any adjustment to the situation- theobservers can develop a post-traumatic syndrome from the terrifying images ofpeople screaming in pain, having convulsions or other crisises, watching thepain of the people they might know and maybe had lunch once, thus everyoneundergoing the authority of the system. The most merciless institutions arejails, prisons, war prisoners bearings and concentration camps, because oftheir severity.
In conclusion, each and every total institution has its owndefined purpose and it follows its interests, this being a continuous and constantcycle.
