Der Freischütz?

Posted by
For one minute Carl, i thought you were blogging on Carl Maria von Weber (composer of the opera, Der Freischütz), but then reality struck me! But I'm intrigued to know whether you agree with Max Weber's thesis in The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism that capitalism arose out of a Protestant (Calvinistic) ethic influencing great numbers of people to work their own enterprizes and engaging in trade and the accumulation of wealth for investment? And if so, what do you think the political consequences might be?
