Orwell -why secular states are as dangerous as Theocratic states

Posted: May 14, 2007 in Theo/Philo, Uncategorized


A totalitarian state is in effect a theocracy, and its ruling caste, in order to keep its position, has to be thought of as infallible”

  1. Ed Darrell says:

    You’re confusing “secular” with “totalitarian.” Orwell didn’t argue against the separation of church and state, but argued in its favor instead.

  2. Mike Godfrey says:

    Your right Ed-there is a confusion regarding totalitarian and secular,I was thinking about the secular fundementalist such as Dawkins, Harris and Dennett how they foster a sense of infallibilty much akin to theocracies.
