Religion Vs Consumerism

The gist of religion or spirituality is that the soul was the only truth, buried deep under the lie of illusory matter.   Having said that, defining and differentiating  good illusion and bad illusion and subsequently attaching material rewards and punishments to them was nothing but a marketing strategy adopted by the religious preachers and practitioners. Poor needy and greedy always fall to such gimmicks. Hence the rise of religion and consumerism thereafter.

Consumerism is nothing but an appendage of religion, like the the two political parties. Both spit at each other and flourish, while the subjects languish.
