The idea of God is the keystone of a

destroyed. The Lrue root of liberty,
equality, cultuic, is atheism."
Attain he says: '"The abolition of
religion- is a necessary condition for
the true happiness of the people."
(Volksblatt, No. 281).
In the manifesto (p. 27), he writes:
"Law, morality, religion are to him

writer of the Socialist party of Ger
many, said in 1875: It is our duty as
Socialists to root out the faith in God

worthy of the name who does not

atheism," and he further maintains
that: '"Socialism sets itself against
Christianity because Christianity is
the religion of private property and
of the respectable clashes."
The English school is just as pro
nounced in its opposition to religion
as is the German.
Ernest Belfort Bax, one of the
greatest authorities in the world on

Socialism is not religious will now
