File this under ONE OF THE BEST QUOTES ON HUMAN NATURE AND POLITICAL THEORY EVER UTTERED. Would that every politician had this tattooed on their heart; their forehead if necessary.

“There are only two possible forms of control: one internal and the other external; religious control and political control. They are of such a nature that when the religious barometer rises, the barometer of [external] falls and likewise, when the religious barometer falls, the political barometer, that is political control and tyranny, rises. That is the law of humanity, a law of history. If civilized man falls into disbelief and immorality, the way is prepared for some gigantic and colossal tyrant, universal and immense.”

Juan Donoso-Cortes, Spanish philosopher, statesman, and writer.
