I agree with previous commenter. Well written.
We have similar outlook on the world but you are too harsh on religion. Jesus (or the idea if you don't believe he lived) was a rebel. From the ideas came a new way of thinking that helped free people from the real slavery of those times. Without those ideas, we would not have the freedom we have now. The ideas were indeed powerful and were used by the unscrupulous to exploit others even until now. The road of Marxism/Socialism is just as bad as the things you point out and it has more than its share of slavish believers to the point of failing to understand that there is something beyond people and their demands. The ideas of Socialism are indeed powerful but they too are used to exploit people. Don't trust in leaders - they will use you. Animal Farm is well worth reading. The pigs always rise to the top. Better to be a lover and poet and a seeker of truth.

what is that?
I don't like it but I admit that it is very well written. I would only change the double spacing. It makes it harder to read.
I won't really comment on the subject matter cause, like I said, I don't like it, but it is a well written piece, gj.
