The Welfare state is a substitute religion
People who live in ''welfare states'' are more likely to depend on the government then to rely on their own self-made status, local community association, as well as church/faith. in France and Belgium, the State becomes the answer to everything and ultimately replaces the Church and/or God as the source of philosophical meaning.

Re: The Welfare state is a substitute religion
This is why Obama is bad. He wants to create a welfare state built around himself that would replace our natural trust in ourselves and in God

Re: The Welfare state is a substitute religion
Even an old atheist like me recognizes the truth of this. Even though all religions are based on falsehood and manipulation, they provide essential service to people. Churches bind communities, provide a reason for art and music. They give reason for people to work together for mutual communal ends, and to take care of the community as a whole.

You are exactly correct.





"You will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free."

And, by obverse, in government, "You will know the Lie, and the Lie will enslave you."


Government is the LIE.

Replacing faith in God with faith in the state is a fundamental principle of the Communist Manifesto.
