Marx is right! It is not God that enslaves us, it’s not religion. But it is our fellow human beings, using God and religion that enslave us. “Not the gods, nor nature, but only man himself can be this alien power over man.” —Marx. The root of both atheism and theism therefore is the desire of human beings to enslave one another! Theism as a form of alienation, and atheism as the supreme diversion of human beings from the struggle to improve social condition towards fighting illusory goods and spiritual beings!
