“The population [of the world is divided] into two classes: the workers and the intellectuals. The rulers find it hard to manipulate the population: so they use materialism to manipulate the intellectuals and use religion to manipulate the workers. Before [they] can conquer the world, they will have to have some rational religion… The founders of science were not atheists or materialists. Materialists began to appear only in the second half of the 18th century.” ~Kurt Gödel
If you’re easily offended, you’re easier to manipulate.
