The modern legacies of the Puritans are those people who believe that

* young people's clothing is immodest
* sex outside of marriage is immoral
* today's music is evil
* even mild swear words are wrong

I'm sure you and your friends can think of other examples of modern Puritanism.

    But you didn't explain how your list is an example of modern Puritanism.

    Your question asks for aspects of society -- not just a list of nouns.

  • socials -

    -clothing, because back then the clothing were usually worn in dark colours and and were supposed to be covering everything

    -church services, because back then they were simple and plain, but now they're not

    -drinking, because back then people used to drink alot mostly the poor because of their lackness to buy the good food, but now people are just drinking casually


    -gambling, because back then there used to be a lot of gambling which caused alot of troubles


    -music, because back then the music was religiouus type but now its full of swear words

    -mild swear words because back then you weren't allowed to utter a single swaer word but now people swear all the time

    is this right please help, I have tried and tried
