  •  Religion works best as a tool (0+ / 0-)

    to manipulate people...because religion is usually associated with moral authority and that trumps Ceaser every time.     Most successful dictators have used religon as it tends to bypass critical thinking for most humans.     Hitler being one of the most famous in recent times.   But it is not just christianity that used...many mideastern dictators also use religion to manipulate their people.

    Of course other ideologies (beliefs beyond logic) can be used to manipulate people...but religion has historically worked the best because of that added zinger of moral authority.
