Global Testosterone Collapse leads to submission a culture of death!

Death drive

In classical Freudian psychoanalytic theory, the death drive (German: Todestrieb) is the drive towards death and self-destruction. It was originally proposed by Sabina Spielrein in her paper "Destruction as the Cause of Coming Into Being" ( "Die Destruktion als Ursache des Werdens") which was then taken up by Sigmund Freud in 1920 in Beyond the Pleasure Principle. This concept has been translated as, "opposition between the ego or death instincts and the sexual or life instincts".In Pleasure Principle,
Freud used the plural "death drives" (Todestriebe) much more frequently than in the singular.
The death drive opposes Eros, the tendency toward survival, propagation, sex, and other creative, life-producing drives. The death drive is sometimes referred to as "Thanatos" in post-Freudian thought, complementing "Eros", although this term was not used in Freud's own work, being rather introduced by one of Freud's followers, Wilhelm Stekel.
