Something Nietzsche knew quite well…

“Once the idea of the creature’s absolute *dependence* on God is lost, … it is inevitable that the idea of one creature’s *independence* of another will be lost as well. Only if I belong to God am I free from being enslaved by someone else; only if my axiological status rests on a divine idea am I free from being distorted and subjugated by another.”

— Romano Amerio, Iota Unum (1996), p. 419.
