Is priestly class needed ??

6 06 2007

Religion like any other ideololgy can be attained only by propaganda. If propoganda fails, religion must disappear.

Without the priestly class religion must disappear.

N B:- This quote must not be used as an arguement for a brahminism as in the later chapters he talks (we will link soon) that limning this(any priestly e.g buddhist monastry) class too rigid was one of the many reasons that Buddhism succumbed to brahminism.
