At the beginning of the novel the narrator romanticizes England’s past. He believes that Europe has excelled in venturing the globe while developing trade and colonizing barbaric lands (Conrad). But as Marlow tells his story the unnamed narrator’s view of England and its colonialism has changed.

To clarify, the value of labor power is determined by the amount of necessary amount of labor time needed to produce a certain commodity . Workers under a capitalist system produce needless labor which they do not receive fair compensation for. The Capitalist society, in Marx’s view, is based entirely upon this concept of exploitation for profits. Next, Max Weber focuses primarily on the “spirit of capitalism” in The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism rather than the actual practice of capitalism itself.
To quote Enlightenment philosopher John Locke, “Reason is natural revelation.” The reasoning and new ideas from Enlightenment philosophers was what shaped today’s society. The central idea of the Enlightenment philosophers of 17th and 18th century Europe was driven by Adam Smith’s thoughts on economy regarding economic decision making and the positive effects of the lack of government interference, the new political opinions and proposals regarding freedom and how it is obtained, expressed by John Locke, and the social and religious ideas regarding religious acceptance and having multiple religious influences in one place from Voltaire. The philosophers of the Enlightenment also were driven by the political theories expanding through Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Besides English settlers there were numerous other representatives of the European countries settling in the new land. And as the Puritans came to practice their own believes so did other nationalities, as explained in the study material. In my own interpretation America represents change and the believe system as well as the way religion was previously practiced was now changing. This change was greatly influenced by the intellectual movement called Enlightenment, which started in Europe and this influence had bearing on the Great Awakening.

The Puritans influenced the development of the New England colonies, including Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island, and Connecticut through the Puritans’ extreme theological values and ideas that create the theocracy, their hard work ethic that increases their economic stability, and their resistance to tolerate other’s different opinions.
