Some believed that the constant admiration for St. Bernard of Clairvaux or the Virgin Mary prompted the creation of the courtly love ideal. But courtly love works have been created even before the popularity of St. Bernard and there were hardly any courtly love works that directly praised the Virgin Mary. Additionally, loving God varies from loving someone because doubts or uncertainties could still occur when loving another person unlike loving God.

This is the impact of utilitarianism in societies, and that’s what the author is trying to say. Twisting what you explain with your 'Authors message statement ' I believe the impact of a perfect society is a lack of individuality. A loss of what makes diversity and uniqueness so apparent.
It isn’t enough to pray to the Dark Lord for something... you must also put forth some effort on your end; It is a popular belief that Satanists do not believe in the Christian God. Atheistic Satanists (LaVeyan Satanists) do not believe in God, they do not even believe in Satan as a real entity. To believe in Satan, you must believe in God, and visa versa. As much as the Dark Lord despises the Christian God, Jehovah, he will tell you that he is the true Creator.
Their art, literature, and culture, was always inspired by, and made for God.

It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity” (131). We can see how Frida Kahlo had a double consciousness.
