Mystical communism 

If there is a place for communism and religion to cohabitate, it seems natural that it would be in the eternal reality where ritual and consciousness lie waiting to achieve what the single individual cannot. Literature, theater, arts, and initiation are powerful rituals that communism has used to build esprit de corps. These rituals focus the consciousness of the members on a task. The egregore created by the group is a manifestation of the members’ active consciousness, which can do things that individuals cannot. This phenomenon resembles the power of prayer as practiced among Christians.
