Lay Back and Enjoy the Totalitarianism

Only religious people who believe that Life is about something else than emotions, and something more than mortal existence, have any serious objections to their minds being comfortably colonised and directed by the linked bureaucracies of employers, the state and the mass media; and there are so few Western religious people; and they are so scattered and mutually mistrustful or hostile, that their resistance to totalitarianism has, so far, been apparently ineffectual.
Why resist totalitarianism? (What is it?)

The most powerful weapon totalitarians have is abundance. The most powerful weapon against it is religion. In the self-denial of abundance. The season of Lent is always a good time to break the conditioning.
