5. More to the point...

Utopia -- from the Greek "ou" = not and "topos" = place or land.
Literally "not a place" or "nowhere"
q.v. "Neverland"

6. even more to the point...

 

The word anarchy comes from the ancient Greek ἀναρχία (anarchia), which combines ἀ (a), "not, without" and ἀρχή (arkhi), "ruler, leader, authority." Thus, the term refers to a person or society "without rulers" or "without leaders."[2]

Religion is nothing more than spirituality with artifical hierarchy.

11. Your last sentence is great.

Spirituality has many definitions and I prefer Sam Harris'.


Caveat--for Harris to be so brilliant about so many thing, he was absolutely blind regarding some other subjects.

8. It should read Religion or Ideology...

Because they both have contentiousness in common.
