Exactly; religion was and is just a means to control the masses.
Yes, and it has sometimes been very successful. For example, it was a monk who ended the bloody games in the coliseum. He jumped into the ring and admonished the crowd to end such barbaric behavior. For that he was immediately martyred, but the games were ended.
Another example: For many years the Vikings continually went on raids. It was conversion to Christianity that ended that. Thank God that religion was successful in controlling the masses!
