That's one way of looking at it. Of course, if you take the old British Empire as an example, it only seemed to start flourishing once the church had been relegated to a side-show, and political systems took over.
Unfortunately the systems, the history, the populace, the traditions. All still too heavily influenced by religion to offer the necessary huge contrast required for significant comparison.

Nope. Only once the yoke of religion was cast off did these systems start to thrive.

Why do we need to follow a religion, a book, someone to believe in something ? Why can we not have enough confidence in following our own ideas, beliefs and natural instincts instead of all these religions that was created by men like us at the end of the day.
Because you will go to hell if you don't...
