Ref : Students duty to study, and not politics; Teachers duty to teach, and not politics, Today, few teachers and students take stupid lessons from some foolish political parties and leaders, such as Communists, Congress, and stupid bunch; Listen What Swami Vivekananda says -
Religions have been again and again defeated, and almost exterminated.
The worship of the goddess of Reason during the French Revolution was not the first manifestation of that phenomenon in the history of humanity, it was a re-enactment of what had happened in ancient times, but in modern times it has assumed greater proportions.
The physical sciences are better equipped now than formerly, and religions have become less and less equipped.
The foundations have been all undermined, and the modern man, whatever he may say in public, knows in the privacy of his heart that he can no more "believe".
Believing certain things because an organised body of priests tells him to believe, believing because it is written in certain books, believing because his people like him to believe, the modern man knows to be impossible for him.
There are, of course, a number of people who seem to acquiesce in the so-called popular faith, but we also know for certain that they do not think.
Their idea of belief may be better translated as "not-thinking-carelessness".
This fight cannot last much longer without breaking to pieces all the buildings of religion.
