    John Stuart Mill wrote this neat précis of Calvinism in On Liberty:

    According to that, the one great offense of man is Self-will. All the good of which humanity is capable, is comprised in Obedience. You have no choice; thus you must do, and no otherwise; “whatever is not a duty is a sin.” Human nature being radically corrupt, there is no redemption for any one until human nature is killed within him. To one holding this theory of life, crushing out any of the human faculties, capacities, and susceptibilities, is no evil: man needs no capacity, but that of surrendering himself to the will of God: and if he uses any of his faculties for any other purpose but to do that supposed will more effectually, he is better without them. That is the theory of Calvinism …

Soooo, " To one holding this theory of life, crushing out any of the human faculties, capacities, and susceptibilities, is no evil"....? This is okay with everyone?
