“established order” or cult?

Soren Kierkegaard, Practice in Christianity, writes,

The established order desires to be totalitarian, recognising nothing over it, but having under it every individual.

I sometimes wonder if some modern institutions are not more cult than organisation?!

Moral of the story: join groups but do not let them rob you of your individuality.
