While it may seem odd to some to see Socialism numbered among religions, it was not uncommon to see it counted as such in books about Comparative Religions throughout much of the Twentieth Century prior to the end of the Cold War. Indeed, it was counted among the top ten religions of the world.
Socialism is not only an economic system; but also a world-view and an idiology based primarily on Humanism and Materialism, with a view to creating a utopian state. With Socialism, however, God is replaced by man. Socialism is a stepping stone to Communism, which is a movement to create a classless, moneyless, stateless social order structured upon common ownership of the means of production, as well as a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of this social order. The true fulfillment of all Socialist societies is to become a purely Communist state.
While many Socialist movements purport themselves to grant freedom of religion - at least initially - once they have gained power, they usually show their true colors, in that they are not only atheistic, but in fact, anti-theistic. The mere presence of any other religion in a Socialist state is viewed as a threat to that Socialist state and mindset. All other religions must be eliminated from their society in order to attain their purely man-made utopian state.
With Socialism reigning throughout most of Europe, and a great surge of Socialist ideals currently being experienced in America, Socialism is an especially great threat to our American way of life, and the world, in these present times. Socialist thought has pervaded most Americans’ world view in the past fifty years or more. One can easily see this with the continuous outcry for “Social Justice” in such areas of Health Care, Employment, Housing, and even Food! We must educate and warn all people to take this threat seriously.
