Max Weber - The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism

"an insult to anyone who takes books seriously."

"damn i hate Max Weber and his Proestant Ethic bullshit."

"just a series of pseudo-mystical platitudes"

"I'm a christian.

Now I have an Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Nintendo DSi, PC, PS2, Gamecube, Gba, Gbc, and a bunch of other fun stuff!

Thank you jesus!"

"The idea that God brings you economic success (and by extension an omnipresent repression of success for others) is because you are part of his 'elite.' It's a Calvinist principle. They believe in predestination, so basically if you are doing well, it's because God wants you to and that makes it okay. Max Weber actually supported that ridiculous belief in his book."
