“Statism: The world’s most popular religion”

"Statism: The world’s most popular religion” is a political saying that has been printed on several images. “RT @wcptersn: Statism: The world’s most popular religion” was posted on Twitter by K. I. Pines (and another) on April 4, 2012. The original tweet is no longer available.

“Statism is the national religion. Public school is where the catechism is taught” and “Statism: The most dangerous religion” are related sayings.


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, the world’s most popular religion, bars separation of State and State. Political atheists go to jail if they don’t pay tribute.

Statism: The World’s Most Popular Religion
https://www.facebook.com/StatismIsAReligion
“Statism, the belief that “government” is a legitimate human endeavor, is a religion. The most widespread human religion of all. It is a matter of faith to its followers and questioning the precepts is seen as an act of war. Those outside the religion see it for the ridiculous and harmful myth it really is.

In the Old Testament God warns that governments are Satan’s construct,
in the New Testament Jesus warns the Disciples of the same,
Statism is rapidly replacing Christianity as the most popular “religion”
Connect the Dots, you tell me. Where is this headed?
