The Lady Author in the Age of New Thought

In this family feel-good adventure, a con-man and his buddy inherit a baby boy when the baby’s father is gunned down by the police. Soon the baby boy is a teenager helping his con-man father sell phony medicine that will supposedly turn drunkards into sober gentlemen. Thanks to a couple of school truant officers, the teen boy ends up in a private school that teaches young boys to become men, using very unconventional methods. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show. . . . If you want to know why Louisa May Alcott wrote “Little Women” and then “Little Men,” read on.

Little Women was published in 1868, and Little Men was published in 1871. Louisa May Alcott’s family knew Ralph Waldo Emerson, and they were both part of a radical new way of thinking that blossomed in the middle of the 1800’s. A group of people that included Nathanial Hawthorn, Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mary Baker Eddy, Russel H. Conwell, Christian D. Larson, Wallace Wattles and others wrote and experimented with the idea that the ultimate success or failure of every person depended greatly on thinking in a certain way. They wrote about the methods of training our minds to think beyond the first instincts and reactions that our animal-instinct minds push into our consciousness.

Their new way of thinking is still growing and becoming more defined to this day, but the basic rules for thinking in a new way are still the same. We see a little bit of this in this movie, and because all of the writings of these thinkers are now in public domain, we can read the original words of some of the most powerfully inspired people of any age.
