Brave New Schools, Chapter 2: The International Agenda

Brave New Schools, Chapter 2: The International Agenda “[A] major goal…should be… to organize a worldwide education program… In the process, we should actively search for ways to promote a new way of thinking about the current relationship between human civilization and the earth. While Gary Nash and his panel of historians were rewriting American history, others were gathering worldwide support for an international education system. “[I]ncreasing numbers of educators, particularly those in leadership roles, have moved toward cross-national educational concerns,” wrote Professor John I. Goodlad in Schooling for a Global Age, funded by powerful globalist foundations such as the Danforth and Rockefeller Foundations as well as the U.S. Department of Education. Education Week explained: “Cawelti’s world-core curriculum would be based… on proposals put forth by Robert Muller, assistant secretary-general of the United Nations, in his recent book New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality.” I silently thanked God for His spiritual protection as I flipped through the pages of the first one, Education in the New Age. The first announced that The Robert Muller School “Is a participating institution in the UNESCO Associated Schools Project in Education for International Co-operation and Peace.” The other confirmed its accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. “The ecumenical teachings of the Christ – peace, justice, love, compassion, kindness, human brotherhood… must also find their way in world-wide global education. We must give the newcomers into the ceaseless renewed stream of human life the right education about their planetary home, about their human family, about their past, present and future, about their place in the universe and in time, so that they can flower to their utmost beauty – physically, mentally and spiritually – and become joyful and grateful members of the universe or kingdom of God.”. Muller’s vision can be seen at a glance in two diagrams for “Defining World Class Education” designed by the Iowa Department of Education. “We need a new world education. Global education, namely the education of the children into our global home and into the human family, is making good progress. But we have to go beyond. We need the cosmic education foreseen by the religions and by people like Maria Montessori. We need a holistic education, teaching the holism of the universe and of the planet….”. Their founder, Rudolf Steiner, shared Alice Bailey’s occult roots in Theosophy, but broke away to start his own cult, Anthroposophy, which he described as “Knowledge produced by the higher self in man.” Like the Robert Muller schools, Waldorf schools offer holistic education and have long used the strategies now implemented in all states through Mastery Learning: whole language instead of phonics, stories and “Literature” instead of factual history, and a strong emphasis on myth, imagination, guided imagery, art, creativity, movement, and spiritual oneness with nature. In his acceptance speech, Muller shared his vision of the new world education program. To bridge the gap between domestic and international education, educators and politicians formed a U.S. branch of the WCEFA. Called the United States Coalition for Education for All (USCEFA), it first met in Virginia in 1991 with Barbara Bush as its Honorary Chairwoman.

Philanthrocapitalism

Many educational reform donors seem intrigued by the nomination of Betsy DeVos as education secretary, as it seems likely she will try to create new growth opportunities for the charter schools so popular with philanthrocapitalists. In so far as the new administration wants to make government perform better, rather than just shrink it, pay for success bonds have won bipartisan support in Congress, and perhaps could be expanded fast. The good news is that lately a few more enlightened business leaders have joined Paul Polman, the CEO of Unilever, in making a public stand for building a more inclusive and sustainable society. The birth of the resistance movement Surprised and depressed by the success of Trump and fearful that he will tear down much of what they hold dear, many American philanthrocapitalists are likely to throw money at efforts to fight ignorant populism and combat the worst instincts of the new administration and a Republican Congress out of touch enough to try to undermine its own ethics watchdog on the first day of its new term. It’s the climate, stupid The top priority for the new resistance movement is likely to be stopping the Trump administration destroying what had been an increasingly concerted global effort to combat climate change. Fighting fake news There will be a vigorous philanthrocapitalistic effort to fight the plague of “Fake news” that has been credited in part for Trump’s win. One leader of this campaign will be one of the fake news movement’s most prominent targets: as well as launching the Barack and Michelle Obama Foundation, Trump’s predecessor in the White House is said to be mulling creating some sort of media-focused entity committed to restoring integrity to news. Uncharitable deductions Now he is getting out of the charity business, and given what he will regard as an obvious bias of philanthropic organisations against him, what could be more tempting for the new President than to demonstrate his egalitarian tax-cutting credentials by getting Congress to abolish the tax deduction for charitable donations? The appointment of former Gates Foundation executive and head of USAID, Raj Shah, as its new head encourages the hope that Rockefeller Foundation will continue to build on its historic commitment to doing good globally. Machine learning for good As the hype grows around the disruptive potential of Artificial Intelligence, the doom-mongers predicting robots taking all the jobs and complaining about the pernicious role of unethical algorithms in everything from news consumption to law enforcement will be joined by philanthrocapitalists who see the possibilities of using AI to do good. How could it continue once Hillary Clinton was elected President? As a result, a lively contest has kicked off to fill the vacuum for a private-sector-led philanthrocapitalist shindig in New York during UN General Assembly week in September. Now they will not be returning to the White House, why shouldn’t Bill, Hillary and Chelsea put the band back together? Meanwhile, though he remains unpopular at home, Tony Blair still sees an opportunity for himself to lead the global fightback against nasty, nationalistic populism: watch out for efforts to launch a new “Blair Initiative” to revive the evidence-based political centre.

“Those who are determined to be ‘offended’ will discover a provocation somewhere. We cannot possibly adjust enough to please the fanatics, and it is degrading to make the attempt.” “War sends the current of purpose and activity flowing down to the lowest level of the herd, and to its most remote branches. All the activities of society are linked together as fast as possible to this central purpose of making a military offensive or a military defense, and the State becomes what in peacetimes it has vainly struggled to become – the inexorable arbiter and determinant of men’s business and attitudes and opinions. The slack is taken up, the cross-currents fade out, and the nation moves lumberingly and slowly, but with ever accelerated speed and integration, toward the great end, toward the ‘peacefulness of being at war,’ of which L.P. Jacks has so unforgettably spoken.” “The powers that be are fond of pointing to the worst government abuse historically on Earth and making claims of moral superiority, but in the end, while the Communist and National Socialist governments in the twentieth century may have harmed their respective populations and those they subdued through war, at least, we have the moral high ground. Of course, this is much like a getting an Underachiever Award at a serial killer convention. The entire system of governance is based on violence and nothing else no matter how noble it is portrayed or how many rose petals litter the dais of the King.”. “As you know I don’t believe in democracy, I believe in personal freedom. Democracy is workable enough in something like a cohesive city-state. But absolutely not once voters get involved in economic issues-the poor will always vote themselves a free lunch, and the rich will buy votes to give themselves more. Democracy always devolves into class warfare.” “In ancient Greece, if you weren’t a landowner you weren’t respected. In the U.S., voting rules were determined by the States, and originally, everywhere, you had to be a landowner. That meant you had something to lose. But that’s not the case anymore.” “The Constitution is an immoral document. It explicates a litany of conditional privileges, subject to modification at any time. That this is done in an orderly manner, via ‘constitutionally’ prescribed mechanisms, does not make the doing of it morally legitimate.” “Slavery, to whatever degree, remains slavery.” “Western cultures emphasize the future; view work as a blessing rather than as a burden; promote individuals based on their merit; value education and frugality, are philanthropic, identify with universal causes, and have higher ethics.” In static cultures, individuals tend to be fatalistic rather than future-oriented; live for the present or past; work only because they need to; diminish or dismiss the value of education, frugality, and philanthropy; are often mired in nepotism and corruption; and promote individuals based on clan and connections, rather than capabilities. ‘I am because we are’ is how one wag encapsulated the cog-like role of the individual in African culture. In advanced cultures, on the other hand, the individual, and not the collective, is paramount…. “Magic wins out over reason; community over individual; communal ownership over private property; force and coercion over rights and responsibilities; wealth distribution over its accumulation.”

Puritanism and Capitalism

The spirit bloweth where it listeth, and men of every social grade had felt their hearts lifted by its breath, from aristocrats and country gentlemen to weavers who, “As they stand in their loom, can set a book before them or edifie one another.” But, if religious zeal and moral enthusiasm are not straitened by the vulgar categories of class and income, experience proves that there are certain kinds of environment in which they burn more bravely than in others, and that, as man is both spirit and body, so different types of religious experience correspond to the varying needs of different social and economic milieux. To contemporaries the chosen seat of the Puritan spirit seemed to be those classes in society which combined economic independence, education and a certain decent pride in their status, revealed at once in a determination to live their own lives, without truckling to earthly superiors, and in a somewhat arrogant contempt for those who, either through wickedness of character or through economic helplessness, were less resolute, less vigorous and masterful, than themselves. To the Puritan of any period in the century between the accession of Elizabeth and the Civil War, the suggestion that he was the friend of economic or social license would have seemed as wildly inappropriate as it would have appeared to most of his critics, who taunted him, except in the single matter of usury, with an intolerable meticulousness. “Discipline” included all questions of moral conduct, and of these, in an age when a great mass of economic relations were not the almost automatic reactions of an impersonal mechanism, but a matter of human kindliness or meanness between neighbors in village or borough, economic conduct was naturally a part. Baro, whose Puritanism lost him his professorship, denounced the “Usual practice amongst rich men, and some of the greater sort, who by lending, or by giving out their money to usury, are wont to snare and oppress the poor and the needier sort.” Cartwright, the most famous leader of Elizabethan Puritanism, described usury as “a heinous offence against God and his Church,” and laid down that the offender should be excluded from the sacraments until he satisfied the congregation of his penitence. Puritans, as well as Catholics, essayed the formidable task of formulating a Christian casuistry of economic conduct. Like traits in individual character which are suppressed till the approach of maturity releases them, the tendencies of Puritanism, which were to make it later a potent ally of the movement against the control of economic relations in the name either of social morality or of the public interest, did not reveal themselves till political and economic changes had prepared a congenial environment for their growth. While social reformers in the sixteenth century could praise Calvin for his economic rigor, their successors in Restoration England, if of one persuasion, denounced him as the parent of economic license, if of another, applauded Calvinist communities for their commercial enterprises and for their freedom from antiquated prejudices on the subject of economic morality. Discarding the suspicion of economic motives, which had been as characteristic of the reformers as of mediaeval theologians, Puritanism in its later phases added a halo of ethical sanctification to the appeal of economic expediency, and offered a moral creed, in which the duties of religion and the calls of business ended their long estrangement in an unanticipated reconciliation. Between the old-fashioned denunciation of uncharitable covetousness and the new-fashioned applause of economic enterprise, a bridge is thrown by the argument which urges that enterprise itself is the charge of a duty imposed by God. Their social theory had been designed for an age of petty agriculture and industry, in which personal relations had not yet been superseded by the cash nexus, and the craftsman or peasant farmer was but little removed in economic status from the half dozen journeymen or laborers whom he employed. The Society ofFriends, in an age when the divorce between religion and social ethics was almost complete, met the prevalent doctrine that it was permissible to take such gain as the market offered, by insisting on the obligation of good conscience and forbearance in economic transactions, and on the duty to make the honorable maintenance of the brother in distress a common charge.

An Important Distinction: Democracy versus Republic

It is important to keep in mind the difference between a Democracy and a Republic, as dissimilar forms of government. It should be noted, in passing, that use of the word Democracy as meaning merely the popular type of government-that is, featuring genuinely free elections by the people periodically-is not helpful in discussing, as here, the difference between alternative and dissimilar forms of a popular government: a Democracy versus a Republic. These two forms of government: Democracy and Republic, are not only dissimilar but antithetical, reflecting the sharp contrast between The Majority Unlimited, in a Democracy, lacking any legal safeguard of the rights of The Individual and The Minority, and The Majority Limited, in a Republic under a written Constitution safeguarding the rights of The Individual and The Minority; as we shall now see. Under a Representative Democracy like Britain’s parliamentary form of government, the people elect representatives to the national legislature-the elective body there being the House of Commons-and it functions by a similar vote of at least half-plus-one in making all legislative decisions. “All the powers of government, legislative, executive, judiciary, result to the legislative body. The concentrating these in the same hands is precisely the definition of despotic government. It will be no alleviation that these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by a single one. 173 despots would surely be as oppressive as one. Let those who doubt it turn their eyes on the republic of Venice.” Such a falsification not only maligns the high purpose and good character of The Framers but belittles the spirit of the truly Free Man in America-the people at large of that period-who happily accepted and lived with gratification under the Constitution as their own fundamental law and under the Republic which it created, especially because they felt confident for the first time of the security of their liberties thereby protected against abuse by all possible violators, including The Majority momentarily in control of government. The truth is that The Framers, by their protests against the “Excesses of democracy,” were merely making clear their sound reasons for preferring a Republic as the proper form of government. Madison’s observations in The Federalist number 10 are noteworthy at this point because they highlight a grave error made through the centuries regarding Democracy as a form of government. Democracy, as a form of government, is utterly repugnant to-is the very antithesis of-the traditional American system: that of a Republic, and its underlying philosophy, as expressed in essence in the Declaration of Independence with primary emphasis upon the people’s forming their government so as to permit them to possess only “Just powers” in order to make and keep secure the God-given, unalienable rights of each and every Individual and therefore of all groups of Individuals. A Republic, on the other hand, has a very different purpose and an entirely different form, or system, of government. The definition of a Republic is: a constitutionally limited government of the representative type, created by a written Constitution-adopted by the people and changeable by them only by its amendment-with its powers divided between three separate Branches: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Such a Constitutional Convention, for either framing or ratification, is one of America’s greatest contributions, if not her greatest contribution, to the mechanics of government-of self-government through constitutionally limited government, comparable in importance to America’s greatest contribution to the science of government: the formation and adoption by the sovereign people of a written Constitution as the basis for self-government.

The author, Henry B. Zimmer, draws on almost fifty years of business experience to explain his reasoning in simple every-day language. The entire “Platform” is based on the concept of Enlightened Capitalism, which equates with social responsibility. The objective is to curtail Unbridled Capitalism and to create a level playing field for all Americans.

Simple English

Most property, for example, is owned by people or companies, not by the government. Some people disagree on whether capitalism is a good idea, or how much of capitalism is a good idea. In capitalism, people may sell or lend their property, and other people may buy or borrow it. In feudalism, most people were serfs and had to work for the people who owned the land they lived on. People can put their money together to buy or build things, even if they are too big for one person to make alone. Within capitalism, sometimes people might not get everything they need to live. Some people think that communism in those countries did not work because Marx’s ideas, though nice in thought, did not really work. There are different words for people who support capitalism. Libertarian is a word that in America and some other countries means someone who wants the government to have little or no power to tell people what to buy or sell. People who support capitalism also have disagreements. Most people agree that capitalism works better if the government keeps people from stealing other people’s things. A few people think that people can protect themselves without any government.

Napp, Ms. / The DBQ Library

“A book is a fragile creature, it suffers the wear of time, it fears rodents, the elements and clumsy hands. So the librarian protects the books not only against mankind but also against nature and devotes his life to this war with the forces of oblivion.” A Document-Based Essay question is a question that provides the reader a series of documents and an essay question. Some DBQs have questions to help readers identify the main idea of each document and some DBQs have only the essay question. All DBQs help learners practice reading for understanding as opposed to merely decoding words. Thus, the DBQ is superb practice to increase analytical thinking skills. Ultimately, it is not to read but to read for understanding that transforms the printed page into something meaningful and even memorable. On the DBQ Library page, students can practice all kinds of DBQs from the simplest to the most profound. These DBQs have been culled from a multitude of sources.

The Communist Manifesto

The Communist Manifesto was a product of the social, economic and political turmoil that characterised Europe before 1850. Both of its authors, Marx and Engels, were touched by elements of this turmoil. Karl Marx, born in 1818, came from the Rhineland, an area occupied by the French during the Napoleonic Wars. During this period the French abolished feudal restrictions, introduced religious toleration and secularised the state. Many, like Marx’s father, benefited from this liberal regime. When, after Napoleon’s defeat, the Rhineland passed under Prussian control, Hirschel Marx, Karl’s father, abandoned Judaism for Christianity to retain the right to practise as a lawyer. Friedrich Engels, born in 1820, came from a family of German industrialists: he had first-hand knowledge of the effects of rapid industrialisation. In 1842 Engels moved to Manchester to work at the family cotton mill. This took him to the heart of the world’s first industrial nation.

An Important Thinker of the 19th Century

Karl Marx was one of the most important thinkers of the 19th century. As one of the founders of Communism he predicted that workers world rebel against the owners of factories and take over the economy and the government themselves. In the 1900s Marx’s ideas influenced many Communist governments. In 1843 Marx married the daughter of a wealthy German baron. Marx tried to survive by writing articles for the New York Tribune and other newspapers. In London Marx founded the International Workingmen’s Association, a group that wanted to improve the life of the working class. During the Industrial Revolution many factory workers and miners in Germany, France and the United Kingdom did not get much money and had to live and work under bad conditions. In “Das Kapital” Marx argued that the working class produced more goods and services than they could ever use and on the other hand the owners of factories had more than they themselves produced. In the ancient world there were masters and slaves, in the Middle Ages lords and vassals, in the industrial world of the 19th century there were middle class owners and workers. People could not buy enough and factories would have to fire workers. Marx’s theories had a lot of influence in the Communist world. Slave = a person who is owned by a master and does work for him without getting paid.

Age of Enlightenment

The Age of Enlightenment is a period in time, which coincides with the French Revolution, that people are starting to think differently than the accepted thinking. The common belief was that a government was a monarchy and everybody lived under absolute power. The Age of Enlightenment rejected these realities and substituted it with its own. The enlightenment version of a government focused around freedom, reason, and most importantly democracy. Enlightenment thinkers thought that these values would lead to and promote capitalism, rlogious freedom, and self-governing republics by democratical means. They also saw it necassary for philosophes to apply their knowledge and rationality to anything that needed to be changed. This type of thinking was exactally what the opressed people of France needed at the beginning of the revolution. These ideas came flooding in by people like John Locke and other philosophes of the time. Many of the aspects of the Age of Enlightenment also came across the ocean from America, where a democracy was set up. French troops from the American Revolution brought these ideas back with them after helping win American independence. These ideas inspired many French citizens and played an important role in the cause of the French Revolution.

Why is Capitalism Good?

Capitalism is a system in the economy where capitalists or private business owners are given the chance to own a business. The owner has the right to manage the whole business, production, and enterprise. The profit goes to the owner of the business and the government has nothing to do with it. In capitalism, there is free market and profit depends on the distribution of goods. Although free market can be a disadvantage to the private business, still this can be a motivation for private owners to improve their products and services because of competition. Capitalism is good in the economy because private individuals who are competent to put up a business can be given the privilege to join the corporate world. The more competition and businesses there are, the more investment there will be. Since these private owners have competitors, they can’t just give their own price and quality according to what they want. Capitalism is beneficial to the economic because it can lift and boost the social system of a society. It can also attract more investors to the country because there is freedom to put up a business. What is good about capitalism is that the government could not control the price and the supply of the products and services. There will be enough employment for laborers because the more establishments are put up; the more human forces are needed.

CALLER: Well, I’m in an ethics course, a biblical ethics course, and he put up a quote on the board about capitalism like having this derogatory meaning with it, and I said, well, what’s wrong with capitalism? And he said, capitalism’s based on selfishness. I said, well, capitalism’s based on hard work. GLENN: So what is his, what is his replacement for capitalism? CALLER: wrote a paper on capitalism as a biblical basis. They, keyword, shared everything they had. Now, your professor can talk all he wants about how evil capitalism is, but ask your professor why Adam and Eve came down. GLENN: No, did he say go quote the scripture to your professor. You tell Wal‑Mart that capitalism is evil as they are writing out the largest check of any corporation for charity on planet Earth, every year. You tell they happen that capitalism is evil when you look at the Jon Huntsman cancer center. Capitalism is evil? You tell me that capitalism is evil when you look at what Washington has built on the backs of capitalists. If capitalism was evil, if capitalism didn’t exist, we wouldn’t have this country.

French Revolution historiography

The French Revolution is an event of great historical significance. Because of its significance, the French Revolution has been studied by hundreds of historians. This article contains a brief introduction to French Revolution historiography. The first interpretations of the French Revolution were written as the revolution itself was unfolding. The French Revolution was not based on rational principles, Burke argued, so it would deteriorate into anarchy. Outraged by Burke’s arguments in Reflections on the Revolution in France, Paine responded with his own interpretation of the French Revolution. During the 19th century the best known British historian of the French Revolution was Thomas Carlyle. Born in Scotland and trained as a mathematics teacher, Carlyle turned his hand to philosophy and history in his late 20s. The restoration of the Bourbon monarchy in 1815 prompted Carlyle to begin writing a history of the French Revolution. The French Revolution: A History was eventually published in 1837. Dickens’ narrative suggests the French Revolution was an inevitable product of aristocratic privilege and exploitation – however the revolution, held captive by the troubled and seedy world of Paris, soon deteriorated into anarchy, mob rule and state-sanctioned violence. Marxist interpretations dominated the historiography of the French Revolution for much of the 20th century. The bicentenary of the French Revolution in 1989 inspired a new wave of histories.

Small Steps Toward A Much Better World

The city’s police-officers union is cracking down on the number of “Get out of jail free” courtesy cards distributed to cops to give to family and friends. Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association boss Pat Lynch slashed the maximum number of cards that could be issued to current cops from 30 to 20, and to retirees from 20 to 10, sources told The Post. The cards are often used to wiggle out of minor trouble such as speeding tickets, the theory being that presenting one suggests you know someone in the NYPD. The rank and file is livid. Here’s another article on these cards which just gets all the more stunning. Silver cards are the highest honor given to citizens. Gold PBA cards are only given to police officers and their families. You’d be hard-pressed finding a cop who won’t honor a gold card. Here’s a gold New Jersey card on sale for $114. A silver “Family member” shield goes for $299. Some of these are probably fake. The regular cards have become more common as NYC hires more police. Union officials say the cards are also public relations tools and tokens of appreciation handed out to politicians, judges, lawyers, businessmen, civil service workers and members of the news media. The officer who is presented with one of these cards will normally tell the violator to be more careful, give the card back, and send them on their way. The enforcement officer can issue the ticket or make the arrest in spite of the courtesy card.

Age of Enlightenment for Kids

The Enlightenment grew partly out of the earlier scientific revolution and the ideas of René Descartes. The Enlightenment’s most important idea was that all people can reason and think for themselves. People do not even have to believe what churches teach or what priests say. Even people with very little power or money should have the same rights as the rich and powerful to help create the society they live in. The Enlightenment’s ideas were also important to the people who fought in the French Revolution of 1789. During the Age of Enlightenment, as more and more people began to use reason, some began to disagree with the idea that God created the world. Every government should have a contract which promises that people will have these rights. People should solve problems with rationalism and the scientific method, instead of looking for answers from religion Writers and philosophers should be free to look for the truth, even if they disagreed with the ideas of people in power such as aristocracy. There should be freedom of religion, and people should accept others who follow different religions. Important people in the Enlightenment came from many different countries and shared ideas in many different ways. Locke’s ideas about people’s rights to “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” were especially important, and appear in the Declaration of Independence. Many people considered the 18th century to be le siècle de Voltaire.

‘Philanthropist’ Rockefeller and the hoax of ‘enlightened capitalism’, by Ramin Mazaheri

We all know, whether you admit it or not, that Chavismo was more effective, more efficient and thoroughly debunked the billionaire’s model of “Enlightened capitalism”. What’s more important is to remember that so-called “Enlightened capitalism” is still a trap being set for you, me and the average person. The “Conscious capitalism” movement is a rare case where American exceptionalism which is actually true. What is the only role of corporations in “Conscious capitalism”? It is to listenand perhaps change their deadly, abusive habits. The role of the consumer in this “Conscious capitalism” philosophy is appalling not in its brutality, but in its infinite endlessness. The philosophy posits that, instead of shifting from capitalism to communism, we all just need to be “Ethical consumers”. Being a “Conscious consumer” is great for capitalism because it makes the average person even more committed to upholding the capitalist model. The entire concept of “Conscious capitalism” when applied to private companies is essentially reduced to the idea – so prevalent in fascism and so absent from so many forms of non-Stalinist communism – that only the “Great” should be leading society. ‘Conscious capitalism’ has long been triedit failed. Prod the idea of “Enlightened capitalism” and you get not just the status quo, but no future as well. There is no “Enlightened capitalism” on a corporate scale. You would do much better – for absolutely everybody living today and in the future – to embrace modernity and demand the fundamental shift from capitalism to communism.

HISTORY OF CAPITALISM

The origins of capitalism: 13th – 16th century The underlying theme of capitalism is the use of wealth to create more wealth. At a more sophisticated level capitalism involves investing money in a project in return for a share of the profit. Full-scale capitalism results in an inevitable divide between employer and employed, or capital and labour. In the Middle Ages the attitude of the church to usury means that capitalism has little chance of developing. Florence in the 14th century demonstrates more familiar indications of capitalism. Such cases contain elements of later capitalism, but their limited scale makes them in a certain way different. The essential characteristics of capitalism only become evident with an increase in scale – in two quite separate contexts. Of later ventures launched on a similar basis, the best known are the East India Company, the Hudson’s Bay Company and the South Sea Company. Calvinism and capitalism: 17th century The development of capitalism in northern Protestant countries, such as the Netherlands and England, has prompted the theory that the Reformation is a cause of capitalism. Nevertheless there are elements in Reformation thought which greatly help the development of capitalism. Speculation: from the 17th century Speculation is an intrinsic part of capitalism, since the capitalist must risk money in the hope of making more. The enterprises in which they participate are joint-stock companies, of which the East India Company is one of the first.

Lecture 16: The Romantic Era

Everyone claims to know the meaning of the word romantic. The expression Romantic gained currency during its own time, roughly 1780-1850. To speak of a Romantic era is to identify a period in which certain ideas and attitudes arose, gained currency and in most areas of intellectual endeavor, became dominant. Romantic ideas arose both as implicit and explicit criticisms of 18th century Enlightenment thought. In a comment typical of the Romantic thrust, William Hazlitt asked, “For the better part of my life all I did was think.” And William Godwin, a contemporary of Hazlitt’s asked, “What shall I do when I have read all the books?” Christianity had formed a matrix into which medieval man situated himself. For the Romantic, the result was nothing less than the demotion of the individual. The Romantic era can be considered as indicative of an age of crisis. In the midst of what has been called the Romantic Era, an era often portrayed as devoted to irrationality and “Unreason,” the most purely rational social science – classical political economy – carried on the Enlightenment tradition. The shift to a new enemy reminds us that the Romantic Age was also an eclectic age. These limits often exerted pressures that can be identified as causes of the Romantic movement itself. In the Romantic era, men and women felt these temporal and experiential differences consciously and intensely. One power possessed by the Romantic, a power distinct and superior to reason, was imagination.
