@herag although to be fair, my Quakerism is mostly cultural. I'm no longer "seeking faith" as I'm quite a happy faithless person.
@lightweight it's funny, the Quakers I know very similarly are cultural Quakers and don't seek faith either, but they are some of the nicest 'friends' (please excuse the pun) I have ever had.
A lot of them still go to the meetings too! Which I think is fantastic, to be honest.
@zudlig oh that is good. I am reading it now. I won't lie, as I read through Rothbard's analysis again I did get that same feeling. I have actually recorded the episode twice now. I am hoping a third take will actually capture my take on the Quakers in 1684-88.
But I agree with you, if the king had sent his full force against them, I do think they would have failed.
Stay tune because my take is a little different. it is more... well I won't spoil it.
