[T]he Germans are the most devout, most pious, most religious people in western civilization. They just don’t call it religion. They call it ‘being right’. They made christian morality a post-christian religion.
American conservatives treat the constitution with the same sacredness as religious scripture.
It is this germanic american religiosity, and continental german religiosity that preserves the west. The differences are simple: the white americans preserve landed aristocracy and the white germans preserve the church.
Both must do their functions for either to survive.
