Weber fears these spheres of conflict. 1) Economy these religions that give these problems come into conflict with the transportation of making money and the trade system. This creates impersonality. In these religions, we are all brothers and sisters. The capital ethic is impersonal. People dont see who buys thingswho they buy them from. Treating a person as a number on your balance sheet is corrupt. You cannot love these people as Puritans would like. Puritans = love everyone Capitalism = profit of off everyone Puritan Calvinist way is a solution: - work in a calling it makes a compromise with the world possible by renounce the universal love of ethic for everyone.
