Religion is something for someone who hasn’t found himself, or has lost himself” o “Religion is the opium of the people” Society has used religion to keep the working class to keep them in their place, and to keep them quiet (e.g. you may not get what the elites get but you’ll receive it in your after life) o If your among the oppress class, all you can hope for is that the elites will help you - From about the mid20s on; scholars argued that they need to recognize what religious people need, belief, etc. Now, we aspire to balance the etic and emic (it was mainly etic before).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
