Tags: Max Weber, Obama’s address to school children
On Tuesday, Obama intends to broadcast a message to the nation’s schoolchildren stressing the importance of hard work and staying in school.
Conservatives are apoplectic about this:
Florida GOP Chairman Jim Greer released a statement this week accusing Obama of using taxpayer money to “indoctrinate” children.
“As the father of four children, I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama’s socialist ideology,” Greer said.
I have read my Max Weber and was under the impression that an ethic stressing hard work was the unpinning of capitalism.
So the Protestant ethic leads to socialism? Who knew?
