Need the antidote

? 133 years ago, Mikhail Bakunin
laid the groundwork for anarchism as a rational political system in his seminal work God and the State
Strongly critical of the dehumanizing effects of religion, Bakunin famously paraphrased Voltaire when he proclaimed, "if God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him."
If you can't make hide nor hair of the President's words, perhaps Bakunin's rationalism is what you're looking for.
