Otherwise, starting at 12:50 and continuing to 13:20 is the part that in a roundabout way helps me make my point. The Doozers' lives revolve around work, and they don't mind at all that the Fraggles, who do nothing to help them with their work, come in and destroy it. In fact, they find joy in the joy that the Fraggles get from their architecture. After reading the introduction information about Winstanley, he seems about as far from a Doozer as you can get. Not to say that he's not hardworking or anything like that, but the entire purpose of this declaration is to argue that it's unfair for the lower end of the social class to be subjected to the upper end for their own personal gain. His goal was to stand up to the "Fraggles," not to continue to be exploited by them. For this reason I think he would argue that the particular work God calls each of us to involves equality. We shouldn't work for things that put us above others or cause us to "use the sword" against each other. I think he would also agree that serving God through family life involves caring for each member of the family equally and focusing on equality and relation with God rather than social status or monetary gain.
Gerrard bases his argument about the right to plow the land on revelation and Christian doctrine. He writes "the King of Righteousness hath made us sensible of our burdens, and the cries and groaning of our hearts are come before him" (Callings, 301). He is implying that it is not the Diggers who are instigating this protest, but God Himself who made them aware of the need for it. In addition to this he uses religious means to identify the original act of obtaining the land as an act of sin. He states that it was by murder that the land was obtained, and those who still possess it are still guilty of the sins committed because of it. Since they own it in sin, he argues that it should be the property of all. Thirdly, Winstanley refers to the righteous law of creation, which gives them "an equal right to the land with [the Lords]" (Callings, 301). All of the reasons he gives employ this religious understanding.I really think Winstanley and Claiborne would have been friends. They both hold very similar views about equality and ownership. At the Simple Way, Claiborne lives by giving all he has to the community and trusting it to support his needs. Winstanley argues for a society where they "must neither buy nor sell. Money must not any longer... be the great god that hedges in some and edges out others" (301). Winstanley also comments that people are made to "labor the earth together," so that everyone can benefit together and "have food and raiment from the earth, their mother" (302). I think Claiborne would also strongly agree that the whole world should work together to provide food and clothing to everyone equally. Going back to Fraggle Rock (I really like Fraggle Rock), both Shane and Gerrard remind me a little of Cotterpin Doozer, who during her helmet ceremony realizes she can't take the "Yes we can" vows of the Doozers which ask her to work, work, work for the rest of her life without asking why or worrying about the Fraggle's exploitation. Overall I think the two have very similar challenges for the social order of their time. While Shane focuses on living simply and Winstanley chooses to use what he believes he has the right to, they both believe in the equality of all people and that everyone should have an equal share of the resources the Lord provides on the earth.
