“Those who seek to build a better world without God are those who, trusting in money, power, technology and organization, deride the spiritual strength of faith and love and fix all their hopes on a huge monolithic society, having a monopoly over all power, all production, and even over the minds of its members.  But to alienate the spirit of man by subjecting him to such monstrous indignity is to make injustice and violence inevitable.  By such means we may indeed increase economic production but in doing so we will only make the world worse.”
