Freud's Theory of Evil

Freud's Theory of Evil was debuted in the 1930's within the book "Civilization and its Discontents". Freud's theory states that human beings have an instinct for life and an instinct of death. The instinct of life is the desire of self preservation and the instinct of death is the opposite. The instinct of life causes someone to stray themselves from self destruction by reflecting ones fear of death externally through aggressiveness and destructiveness; therefore the fear of death is where evil comes from and why people act nefariously. The theory states that the only way to prevent evil is through the building and promotion of civilizations and religions.
