Death/Baudrillard: death must never be understood as a real event in which the purpose of the subject and the value gets lost. It is a bearer and a metaphor of reversibility. It is not to be understood religiously. The exchange behaves like in the primitive initiation rituals and the myth of rebirth.
Death/society: death is forbidden, suicide is frightening: this leads to social control. Fascination of natural catastrophes or terrorism: longing for subversion.
