"The only antidote to mental suffering is physical pain."

"Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a
protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart
of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people."
(1818 - 83)
[Was revolutionary communist Karl Marx an abolitionist? Marx once referred to the abolition of suffering as the "categorical
imperative" of communists. See The Grandeur and Twilight of Radical Universalism (1991) by Agnes Heller and Ferenc Fehér]
