Quote# 2251

If you tell someone the truth, and they kill themself...versus if you tell someone a lie and they live on some false hope? Which is better for a productive society? Completely detached from any religious views, couldn't it be advantageous for a government looking to have productive citizens? I'm not saying it is or isn't...just the possibility. If everyone believes that they are part of some higher plan, I'm sure they will work and encourage much better than if they think that their entire world is the product of natural forces.

You are right. Many leaders throughout history have realized the significance of having a people who are subserviant to a god or idol. The leaders of the world have always known that religious people are easier to control and have openly encouraged religion. They use it against you but you can't see over your bible.

What kind of "truth" do you tell that would make someone want to kill themselves? Is it a small-minded, hateful, condemnatory "truth"? Then it would make YOU small-minded, hateful, and condemnatory. Zip your lip.
