In particular, the freedoms and guarantees against infringements by government were an early innovation of the QuakersMan, did I botch that up! (No wonder, I was writing at 12:45 in the morning . . .)The freedoms were not an early innovation of the Quakers. The freedoms that the Quakers sought to protect come from God, not the government. What I was meaning to convey, was that the Quakers recognized these liberties as coming from God, and set up a government that guaranteed that it would not infringe on those freedoms.The Quakers, as an oppressed religious minority in the United Kingdom, obviously had a keen interest in preventing another bullying government from arising in the New World.
