Kind of like “The God That Failed”:
“The God That Failed is a 1949 book which collects together six essays with the testimonies of a number of famous ex-communists, who were writers and journalists. The common theme of the essays is the authors’ disillusionment with and abandonment of communism. The promotional byline to the book is ‘Six famous men tell how they changed their minds about Communism.’”
It is not just govt - I think they think a liberal man is like unto the Son of God.
