Religion is a necessary part of life. It gives people something to believe in and can also lead to connections being formed. Religion can also give people a sense of belonging. With all of this being said, I do not necessarily believe that religion is the answer to defeating dystopia. I believe that it can be a helpful tool, but alone I do not believe that it can accomplish the job. Because of what religion can do and stand for, it is a tool that can be used in a positive and negative way. It can also be a way to oppress someone. Because of this, I believe that it can be helpful because having faith builds confidence which is necessary for defeating oppression.
Is religion the answer to oppression?
