Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology
Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology are areas of study that are closely related, if not simply studies of very similar principles from very differing perspectives. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines psychology as the study of the mental or behavioral characteristics of an individual or group (www.merriam-webster.com). The same source will define sociology as the science of society, social institutions, and social relationships; or the systematic study of the development, structure, interaction, and collective behavior of organized groups of human beings (www.merriam-webster.com). Finally, anthropology is defined by the Merriam-Webster ...view middle of the document...

Finally, C. Wright Mills ends his piece by explaining his interpretation of the involvement and influence of the “public” in these matters. In the opinion of C. Wright Mills, the general public is relegated to be governed by the decisions of those at the highest echelons of power. Mills argues that the public, as it was once known, no longer has any meaningful input as to the rules of the game. The public is now simply expected to play this game, and is largely becoming “increasingly powerless”.
View through the Psychological Lens
The article by C. Wright Mills elicits a feeling of discomfort at first glance. I certainly don’t consider myself to be a part of the “power elite”, or even the middle level of politics. That leaves me to the lower level of the “power” structure. Although I tend not to concern myself with frivolous issues (mostly decisions made by what C. Wright Mills describes as the middle level of influence), I have always been aware of how the decisions of a select few affect a great many people. While the first instinct seems to be to stand up and let your voice be heard, my personal stance has been to take care of those closest to me, and to remember the things that actually matter to one’s existence (such as food, shelter, beliefs and family). Through my psychological lens, I fall into the category of the indifferent public, as long as the things that I hold important remain untainted. Any other issues that those at the “top” of the decision making process beholden themselves to are not in my sphere of concern, as long as the two spheres do not conflict.
View through the Sociological Lens
From a sociological standpoint, C. Wright Mills covers several interesting topics that I find to be self-evident in modern day society. The United States executive branch consistently makes promises that it can’t deliver on (President Barack Obama insisting that those who wished to keep existing...
