"In this lies our peril"

“THERE is with us a complete chaos in religious doctrine, where religious doctrine is still held…. As nations, we worship ourselves, we worship the nation, or we worship (some few of us) a particular economic arrangement believed to be the satisfaction of social justice. Those who direct us and from whom the tone of our policy is taken have no major spiritual interest … Islam has not suffered this spiritual decline … and [in this] lies our peril.”

~Hilaire Belloc: The Crusades.
