The secularization of State theories is still an unfinished process. The depolitization conducted by the liberal democracy deprives the conceptions of modern State from its concept of sovereignty as it reduces the political to moral, law, and economy only. The concept of secularization used by Carl Schmitt unveils the conceptions of immanence which conceals the concrete political actions dressed in the cloak of the rule of law. For Carl Schmitt, the secularization of the political confers visibility to the human existential antagonisms which are usurped by the liberal democracy.
