Karl Marx

“Religion is, indeed, the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again.... Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.”

--Karl Marx, “A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right,” 1843
