Blue Whale Syndrome

We all know that the destructive and chaotic game of Blue Whale has taken the world by storm and is slowly crumbling the lives of many talented youngsters. I would like to take a psychoanalytic view and describe the intentionality of the creators and the players. Freud has said that human beings are driven by Eros, the pleasure principle or Thanatos, the death drive. The creators of the game indulge in Sadistic-erotic-Thanatos. In other words there is a Sadistic pleasure encompassing an erotic one, leading others to death. The players of the game are driven by the Thanatic drive. All countries should take a voluntary initiative and curb access to this game.
