Jews, Confucians, and Protestants: Cultural Capital and the End of Multiculturalism by Lawrence E. Harrison

jews confucians and protestants harrison lawrence e

But what if multiculturalism itself is flawed? Lawrence Harrison has created a masterpiece in the tradition of Carlos Rangel, Claudio Veliz, Mario Vargas Llosa, Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza, Carlos Alberto Montaner and Alvaro Vargas Llosa; one can consider Lawrence Harrison as the Max Weber of the 21st Century! The result is a comprehensive and controversial book, guaranteed to make readers sit up and take notice, agreeing or disagreeing to the full extent of their varied and individual voices. Clearly separating himself from conservatives, Harrison outlines a progressive agenda based on deliberate cultural engineering. He has examined cultures as diverse as Jews and Confucians and found that, contrary to the central precept of multiculturalism, some cultural groups have been substantially more successful than others in mastering the challenges of modernity. That resistance persists in sharp debates sure to bring readers, both partisans and critics, to this book. What if some cultures are more prone to progress than others and more successful at creating the cultural capital that encourages democratic governance, social justice for all, and the elimination of poverty? But, as he stresses, cultural values and attitudes change, and Pan-Americanism can be more than a dream.

Harrison takes the politically incorrect stand that not all cultures are created equally. Analyzing the performance of 117 countries, grouped by predominant religion, Harrison argues for the superiority of those cultures that emphasize Jewish, Confucian, or Protestant values. This author will be the object of hate-speech by the far left because he has invalidated the self-anointed political elites' view that serve as a guide to domestic and foreign policy as well as foreign aid. A concluding chapter outlines ways in which cultural change can substantially transform societies within a generation. In so doing, he effectively makes the case that some cultures are more capable of creating the cultural capital that is a catalyst for democratic governance, social justice, the elimination of poverty, and creation of wealth. Analyzing the performance of 117 countries, grouped by predominant religion, Harrison argues for the superiority of those cultures that emphasize Jewish, Confucian, and Protestant values.

Pease traces more than 100 years of major theories put forth to explain the phenomenon, using the technique of a Chronology to expose the strengths and flaws of each theory over time. These are the questions Lawrence Harrison addresses in The Pan-American Dream. There's no realistic viewpoint of culture as the self-expression of a people here, only as a tool to make money and get higher test scores. The book travels widely, from the Ten Commandments to the Reformation, from Islam to Mormonism and from the Basques to the Sikhs. In the process of evaluating the methods for curbing religious competition advocated by such thinkers as Spinoza and Lessing, as well as by modern ecumenists, the author points the way to a general approach to religious competition that minimizes destructive religious conflicts without ignoring the positive value of religious competition. Not bad for one who as a young boy in Brookline Massachusetts was bullied by the in-crowd of Irish Catholic boys.
