Capitalism as a Religion by Franz Segbers

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/03/431895.shtml
“Capital is the only god that the whole world knows, sees, touches, smells, tastes and excites all our senses. it is the only god that doesn’t encounter any atheists” (Paul Lafargue’s little known genial satire “Religion of Capital” from 1887).

Trust in the “invisible hand” is a trust in a religion that has a money god. Capital and its multiplication claim an all-determining authority. Only an enlightenment about the economy with the means of religion helps against a capitalism as religion.
