The totalitarian systems that arose in the twentieth century presented themselves as secular.

Yet, as A. James Gregor argues in this book, they themselves functioned as religions. He presents an intellectual history of the rise of these political religions, tracing a set of ideas that include belief that a certain text contains impeccable truths; notions of infallible, charismatic leadership; and the promise of human redemption through strict obedience, selfless sacrifice, total dedication, and unremitting labor.

As often as I can still declare it; rigid rules are for the compliance of dupes and the leadership of the shrewd.

Even though dogmatic credo and self-righteousness  doesn't essentially make it an established faith, it is correct to ask whether the government is acting as God-like entities since the CONvid surge - but since I'm a doubter I refuse their belief scheme!.
