“Statism is the national religion. Public school is where the catechism is taught”

"Statism is the national religion, and the public school is where the catechism is taught” was posted on Twitter by TheVoluntaryist on December 25, 2013. “Statism is the national religion. Public school is where the catechism is taught” was shown on an image on the blog Liberty Lessons for Kids on December 26, 2013.

“Statism: The world’s most popular religion” is a related saying.


Wikipedia: Statism
In political science, statism is the doctrine that the political authority of the state is legitimate to some degree. This may include economic and social policy, especially in regard to taxation and the means of production.

While in use since the 1850s, the term statism gained significant usage in American political discourse throughout the 1930s and 1940s. Opposition to statism is termed anti-statism or anarchism. The latter is characterized by a complete rejection of all hierarchical rulership.

Statism is the national religion.
("Statism is the national religion. Public school is where the catechism is taught” is shown on an image.—ed.)
One of the principles we all learn about America is that the government is not supposed to interfere with religion. Since the government isn’t allowed to interfere with religion, it has created it’s own religion, called Statism. Statism is the tool the government uses to trick the people into worshiping the state. It is the belief by the people that the State can keep them safe, provide for them, and create a righteous society for them. Statism is a very clever scheme created by the government. Most people learn to worship the State but are totally unaware of it.

To said spoons, the government is God. Yesterday I worked out the logic of the following.
Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion. Now that statism is the national religion, & my religious beliefs oppose coercion, I can practice agorism under #1A .
