Pagan Spirituality and the Future of America

The core confusion is to equate capitalism with economic freedom or free markets. Once we understand that this is not at all true, we can begin to harmonize our spirituality with our love of liberty.

By Gus diZerega, October 04, 2012

Religion's relationship with the rest of society is complex and influence flows both ways. Sometimes a society decisively shapes a religion, as when the Catholic Church adopted imperial Rome's administrative structure for itself. Sometimes a religion has an outsized impact on its society, as with the Quakers' impressive role in eliminating slavery.

What might our impact be should we continue to grow?

Pagan spirituality clashes with modern America at one very basic level. For us the world itself is sacred. Depending on our views, it is either the center of the sacred or a direct manifestation of it.
