Video: In Defense of Puritanism

I enjoyed this video about the puritans - presentation is a bit unusual in places (influenced by 'A Field in England' methinks). I think the bloke works as a reenactor so he's clearly into it, informative though. |
"Many of us think of 17th century Puritans as dour, conservative theocrats – nothing could be further from the truth. This video will argue that Puritanism was, in fact, a radically progressive social justice movement that directly inspired the principles of the Enlightenment, and first articulated foundational modern democratic beliefs about human rights, civil liberties, and individual freedom."
