America;9/26/1914, Vol. 11 Issue 24, p590
The author reflects on the separation of economics from religion. The author believes the Reformation that brought about the separation of economics from religion has made possible the oppression which Liberalism is said to soon exercise over the masses of the laboring population. Also mentioned is that the fallacy of excessive individualism became the delusion of Socialism. The author states total abolition of all religious belief is the real objective of Liberalism and Socialism.
