We are all born under the influence of the Church and State. While these two powerhouses are supposed to be separated, they actually function as two sides of the same coin. Our country is divided based on which of these authority systems we prefer to govern us. If we step back we can see that the problem is not either of these governments, but the binary, dualistic nature that fuels each one. Both church and state infect us with “otherness” which gives us an identity in exchange for our true self. The solution is easy and within our grasp, but we must be willing to face an exile.
