Wretchard -

The most dangerous political movements are those which take on the aspects of religion. They claim the protection of faith by pretending to speak to eternity on the one hand, while practicing the most immediate kind of power grabbing on the other. It’s no coincidence that socialism and radical Islam are the chief contenders for absolute power. One is a religion pretending to be a political movement and the other is a political movement in the garb of a religion.
