Service Religion

David Brooks, in an op-ed for the New York Times, puts social activism in it’s place:

“You can cram all the nongovernmental organizations you want into a country, but if there is no rule of law and if the ruling class is predatory then your achievements won’t add up to much.”

Is Brooks the first to coin the term “service religion”?
