Does "which" refer to "the salvation of mankind" or does it refer to "mankind"?
"which is otherwise destined to..."
Therefore the comprehension and acceptance of Spiritualism are essential things for the salvation of mankind, which is otherwise destined to descend lower and lower into a purely utilitarian and selfish view of the universe. The typical materialistic state was prewar Germany, but every other modern state is of the same type if not of the same degree.
"The History of Spiritualism," by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Conan Doyle and escapologist Harry Houdini were great friends but they did not see eye to eye on Spiritualism. As a stage magician Houdini was wise to the tricks of the trade and exposed a lot of fakes.
