In some forms of Western Christian belief, damnation to hell is the punishment of God for persons with unredeemed sin. Damnation can be a motivator for conversions to Christianity. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damnation#Religious [Mar 2006]
In Georges Bataille's theory of consumption, the accursed share is that surplus energy or excessive and non-recuperable part of any economy which is destined to one of two modes of economic and social expenditure.
Either it is spent luxuriously and knowingly without gain in the arts, non-procreative sexuality, spectacles and sumptuous monuments, or it is obliviously destined to an outrageous and catastrophic outpouring in war.
