The capitalist system does not foster healthy relations among human beings. A few people own all the means of production and others have to sell their labor under conditions imposed upon them. The emphasis of capitalism being on the supreme importance of material wealth, the intensity of its appeal is to the acquisitive tendency. It promotes worship of economic power with little regard to the means employed for its acquisition and the end that it serves. By its exploitation of human beings to the limits of endurance its concentration is on the largest profit rather than maximum production. Thus the division of human society is done on the basis of profit motive. All this is injurious to human dignity. And when the harrowed poor turn to the founders of religion for succor, they rather offer a subtle defense for the established order. They promise future happiness for present suffering. They conjure the revolt of the tortured men. The system imposes injustice, the religion justifies it.

(a) to acquire maximum wealth
(b) to soothe the sufferings of other
(c) to have visions of paradise 
(d) to produce maximum wealth

Q22. The established order is supported by religion to:
(a) help the tortured men to seek redress
(b) alleviate the suffering of the poor in the capitalist system
(c) balance the suffering of the poor with hopes of future reward
(d) perpetuate the injustice imposed by the capitalist system

Q23. Capitalism divides society into the two categories of ___.
(a) religions and irreligious people
(b) working and non-working peo
(c) exploiters and exploited people
(d) buyers and sellers

(a) ambitious
(b) dehumanizing
