In addition to the above I could and should have added the huge social contribution made by the Quakers in the area of peace, prison reform, etc etc. Despite being religionists, and therefore old hat and needing weeding out apparantly. To usher in a brave new world of shiny faced rationalists.
The methodists started the Sobriety movement, which lasted for around 100 years I think!
The quakers also built towns and hospitals for their workforce, which had schools, hospitals, churches, allotments to grow their own food, and gave us the five day working week if I remember rightly (last one.)
