    Puritan Values or MBA Values?

    Kenneth Hopper and William Hopper -- The Christian Science Monitor

    ... It was our falling away from Puritan values in the 1970s that sowed the seeds of destruction. This [Puritan] migration endowed the Bay Colony of Massachusetts with four core beliefs: (1) a conviction that the purpose of life, however vaguely conceived, was to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth; (2) an aptitude for the exercise of mechanical skills; (3) a moral outlook that subordinated the interests of the individual to the group; and (4) an ability to assemble and use financial, material, and human resources to a single purpose, on a massive or a lesser scale. These four beliefs created a powerhouse.

    At one point the Anglo-Saxon Puritans maintained a utopia, albeit, copying to a degree from the Judaic society of the OT, and having English law mixed in. It just went to show how perfect we Anglo-Saxons are when left to ourselves. Then eventually, after America became a nation, their utopia faded, only to slowly become replaced by the degenerate society we have today.

    The Puritan values worked well for America (not sure if they would have work elswhere) we should return to them.

    I know many persons compare (traditional) American values (based on Reformtion & Calvinist Christianity) to Judaism, because much of it is based on the Old Testament. But I think a distinction need to be made between ancient Hebraic values (OT) & the contemporary post-exile Jewish values, which is what replaced the Puritan Values.

    Of course this utopia I speak of was more influenced by the homogeneity of the WASP population.
