The Life Drive

According to Freud, human beings have an ultimate force driving them: the life drive.The life drive is defined as the drive for survival, propagation, hunger, thirst, and sex. Human being's most basic needs.

In World War Two, this life drive was exemplified many times.

1939-1945

Many war crimes committed

Concentration camps- Holocaust

Nanjing Massacre

Most lived with fear of death; a constant threat

Hitler’s Germany In Nazi Germany, many Germans were forced to join the Nazi party and commit many war crimes under threat of death: they or their families would be killed if they failed to follow orders. This is an example of the lengths people are willing to go through in order to survive, linking back to the basic life drive.

In 1937, Nanjing was held siege by Japanese soldiers. For 6 weeks, these soldiers plundered the city. They raped, tortured, and slaughtered thousands of Chinese citizens. What was the drive behind this disgusting display of violence and aggression? It’s arguable that they themselves feared death, and therefore felt they must master it by committing these crimes. This fear of death was prevalent in most World War Two societies, and is related to the basic human want to stay alive. The Nanjing Massacre

Consider the Following: What are humans willing to do to survive? How prevalent is the human fear of death, and the human life drive? Can you think of any other examples in World War Two where this life drive concept could be applied?
