So if I've got this right, the central argument of Muriel Spark's 1962 novella The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is that Calvinism is a form of fascism, and a Calvinist God is no better than a Mussolini or a Hitler, and that in a predestined universe there are no moral ramifications and so every act is above reproach, neutral and meaningless, and also since such a Calvinist God owes us nothing as individuals, we owe Him nothing and it is impossible to betray one to whom we owe nothing. I think. It turns out to be a lot more of a book than the story of a spinster school teacher and her adolescent charges in Edinburgh between the wars. I know very little about Calvinism, but Miss Spark seems to have had definite ideas. So, interesting.
