One of the major contributors to both anxiety and depression in our current society is due to the staggering Inequality of Wealth in America. Most of us don't really understand that this country is fast becoming a "third world" nation, and that we have been charmed, swindled and cheated by the political party that generally represents (only) the financial interests of the very rich in this country.
