A new type of superstition has got hold of peoples minds, the worship of the state. People demand the exercise of the methods of coercion and compulsion, of violence and threat. Woe to anybody who does not bend his knee to the fashionable idols! — Ludwig von Mises, Omnipotent Government, p. 11
*** begin quote ***
Statolatry has become the principal form of worship in contemporary America. People erroneously talk about “separation of Church and State” when “the State” has replaced “the Church” as the idolatrous venue for worship. As the Church had its calendar of Holy Days of Obligation and sacraments, so too the State has its own sacred holidays, icons, protocols and rituals.
*** and ***
Each day in rote, millions of captive children in government schools recite the Pledge of Allegiance, their solemn oath to this sacred creed, without giving it cursory reflection or thought.
Thus is born a new generation of blind worshipers at the Golden Calf of Statism.

Interesting that no one sees the problem.
The Gooferment Skrules have done an excellent job of brainwashing the future Sheeple. Inserting the worship of Mother Earth and dependence upon Father State. From whom all good things flow. (Stolen from someone else!)
And, the Catholic Schools cooperated. And, the Catholic Church cooperated. And, Catholics cooperated.
The Church was always a counterbalance to the tyranny of the “King”. Somehow, someway, sometime — we lost that.
We need to recapture the disgust for this pagan way of life?
Or is it too late!
