Some people claim that the atrocities we commit in our fiction are those inner desires which we cannot commit in our controlled civilization, so they're expressed instead through our art. I don't agree. I believe Heaven and Hell are one and the same. The soul belongs to Heaven and the body to Hell.

An interesting philosophical discussion. I don't think it's as much an inner desire to commit atrocities as much of an exploration of that dark part of the greater subconscious (using a Jungian concept, but Freud would call it 'Id'). We need to understand our 'shadow' to control it, and I believe fiction is a very safe way to do so.

That's a very Gnostic view.
