The psychologist Ernest Becker wrote a classic a few years ago titled The Denial of Death.  He uses the term "Immortality Systems" when referring to the monotheistic religions, but also includes communism, fascism, and other toxic -isms.  Below is a link to a lecture available on his site  There is also a recent award winning documentary film titled "Flight from Death, the Quest for Immortality" that contains views similar to Sam's.
