My first question on seeing this quote is: What is a Statist? A Statist is a person who invests the state (government) with the ability to answer all of life’s questions and needs. A person who believes this way is worshiping a false god of course but since the state has become their god you cannot do much to persuade them away from investing all of their effort into it.
In the modern era it is wise for us to remember that the statist will do his (her) best to destroy anyone who even begins to shake their faith.
