Ugh, ugh, and yet again ugh!

My husband, working on a Masters in History, is taking a course on History of Religion. He came across this sentence while reading The Protestant Ethic & the Spirit of Capitalism, by Max Weber:
Calvinism opposed organic social organization in the fiscal-monopolistic form which it assumed in Anglicanism under the Stuarts, especially in the conceptions of Laud, this alliance of Church and State with the monopolists on the basis of a Christian-social ethical foundation.
Oh, my poor hubby! I'm so glad I'm not in college any more!


  • Huh? What does that sentence mean? Education shouldn't be confusing.

  • Tee hee, I had a book on the problems of globalization that must have been written by the same type of person! It's really more fun if you don't have to understand it. Wouldn't it be great to order fast food speaking this type of language? What do you think you'd get?!
