|Opium den and now|
Man is the world of man – state, society. This state and this society produce Facebook, which is an inverted consciousness of the world, because they are an inverted world. Facebook is the general theory of this world, its encyclopaedic compendium, its logic in popular form, its spiritual point d’honneur, its enthusiasm, its moral sanction, its solemn complement, and its universal basis of consolation and justification. It is the fantastic realization of the human essence since the human essence has not acquired any true reality.
Facebook 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.
(A version of Karl Marx, on religion)
