A mix of superstition and longing for something more than this reality.

Under capitalism, giving flimflamming priests money is the only way people know to pay tribute to a higher power. Everything in their world revolves around spending money.

Capitalist work became a divine tool for religious people to serve their divinity. Giving money to a priest is the capitalist version of "climbing seven thousand steps", I think.
