Politics Becoming Religious

I'm sure this is no surprise to you. I'm fairly convinced that though nearly 400 years have passed since the real founding of America (not the United States thereof) we have really not come very far from our "origins".

In any event, a kind of placeholder thought from Soren K. in his Journals:

Even now, in 1848, it certainly looks as though politics were everything; but it will be seen that the catastrophe (the Revolution) corresponds to us and is the obverse of the Reformation: then everything pointed to a religious movement and proved to be political, now everything points to a political movement, but will become religious.
