I am reading Brothers Karamazov. There is a line from it that I don't follow, and maybe one of you can explain it to me. This passage: "As soon as he reflected seriously and was struck by the conviction that immortality and God exist, he naturally said at once to himself: 'I want to live for immortality, and I reject any half way compromise'. In just the same way, if he had decided that immortality and God do not exist, he would immediately have joined the atheists and socialists (for socialism is not only the labor question or the question of the so called fourth estate, but first of all the question of atheism, the question of the Tower of Babel built precisely without God...)" I don't understand how Dostoevsky reaches the conclusion that "socialism is not only the labor question or the question of the so called fourth estate, but first of all the question of atheism" ??? Does that mean that the statements negation, that Capitalism would then lead to Theism??!!
