The Constant Battle Between the ID and the Super Ego

As Freud said, we all have an ID, an ego, and a super ego. The ID is the part of us that we aren’t aware of. One might say our rebel side, the subconscious part of ourselves. On the other hand, the super ego is the part of ourselves that want’s to do everything according to society. The one that is afraid of what other people might think, and wants to maintain a certain order. There are times when our ID is to strong a feeling, and the super ego can’t control it, so we spill out, but our super ego is there to try to pick up the pieces. They are in a constant fight, but the super ego is stronger, I think all of us can agree to that. Would the world be a better place without our super ego? or would it just be total chaos?
