When government becomes God dissent is labeled a heresy as fact checkers will confirm that questioning authority is hate speech, and the rights and opinions of a select few oligarchs override anything the common folk say.
“Law is in every culture religious in origin. Because law governs man and society, because it establishes and declares the meaning of justice and righteousness, law is inescapably religious, in that it establishes in practical fashion the ultimate concerns of a culture. Accordingly, a fundamental and necessary premise in any and every study of law must be, first, a recognition of this religious nature of law.”
R.J. Rushdoony, The Institutes of Biblical Law, Introduction, pg. 4
We should have never allowed ourselves to see each other as slaves to the ruling class, submitting to democracy (which is mob rule) and letting others have power over anyone else for any reason. Our inability to take the moral high ground has led to us this point in history. Government is now your god. Like it or not.
