The most frenzied exponents of materialistic values today are those who have developed enough intellect to lose their faith in the hypocrisies of conventional religion but who have lost their true intuition along with their false belief.

Since both the religious and their rebels have contributed to this situation, there is no remedy save in a clearer insight on the part of both.
