It is English catholicism. Anglican refers to C of E. In America it is called Episcopal. - 1st Tradition, Calvinism: names after John Calvin, Roman Catholic Church, broke with it because he thought it was corrupt and unethical, work is a gift from God, if you work you will become rich, if you work harder you will be richer, if you don't work you do not deserve food, if you do not work you dishonor god and you do not deserve anything, Prespitirian church, calvinists believe people were poor because of their character and their flaws, they did not believe in god and god did not like them, you should not give anything to anyone who does not believe in god, “stinginess is next to godliness” - Protestant protests the roman catholic church - 2nd Tradition, Localism: people getting relief and help from their own parish, employers always know that they will have the same people and those people cannot leave, cannot go to another herons’s parish. - 3rd Tradition, Reliance of Organizations and Institutions: institutions like colleges, orphanages, hospitals, asylums, it is still practiced today - 4th Tradition, Control of the Labor Market: if you're working and you can get a higher wage, you cannot move to that area to work. - 5th Tradition, Less Eligibility: the highest amount of money a person can receive from welfare is lower than what you could get if you work, if you can get more why work? - All of those 5 traditions were brought to the USA - The orphan train showed how conditions were in New York City, young girls prostituting themselves, young boys were drinking, During the progressive era - Presidency of Herbert Hoover: period of the Great Depression, many people committed suicide because the rich had become poor, “If you vote for me again things will get better”, he lost - Economic depression is rising inflation along with rising unemployment.
