Max & John C. Wright: Is Civic Freedom Possible in a Godless Society?

“When I was young, all the secular writers I read, and all the atheist thinkers I heard, promised that if our society shed the last vestiges of religion, the we would be more free. For the most, they meant free of sexual morals, inhibitions, and social roles. But the reality of postchristian America and Britain is a continual erosion of freedom, which, in this generation, has accelerated. The end of First Amendment rights is foreseeable within our lifetime, if trends are not reversed. The reality of regimes where atheism is the official state religion, that is, the Soviet Union, Red China, North Korea, are nightmares of slavery, butchery, wasted lives, and oppression: living hell on earth. Is civic freedom feasible in a godless society? Is it possible?” –John C. Wright
