As far as the roots of civilization dwell, therein lies the birth of its intertwining with religion. Religion has often been the origin of dissent or war amongst different nations in their efforts to conform opposing societies to their own view of what is "right." Gathering together a cohesive timeline from the onset of organized religion and government to its current manifestation in premiere countries such as England, the United States, and China, Civilization, God, and the End of Democracy reviews opposing viewpoints and evidence for what could potentially be the beginning of the end of democracy as we know it.
