Governments are secular religions.

Like religions, they have laws.

Like religions, they arbitrarily ban certain food items, plants, and/or objects to denote culture.

Like religions, they thrive on symbols and song and pledge rituals with specific hand gestures.

Like religions, they punish those who question the narrative.

Like religions, individuals are subject to a higher authority figure which judges their actions.

Like religions, adherence and allegiance is based upon loving the idea and fearing the consequences of not loving it.
