This concluding chapter discusses capitalism as religion. Capitalism serves essentially to allay the same cares, torments, and troubles to which in the past the so-called religions offered answers. Capitalism is a purely cultic religion and is essentially a religious phenomenon, would even today lead us astray, down the path of measureless universal polemics.

Keywords: capitalism; religion; cult; torments; religious phenomenon; universal polemics
