What does hypocrisy mean?
Hypocrisy is technically a falseness, professing one belief, policy, or standard while not following it in your own actions. A hypocrite is someone who has double standands and speaks in duplicity. They say one thing but do another. They tell others to do things that they themselves don't do, or they do things they tell others not to. Basically someone who doesn't practice what they preach is a type of hypocrite. Other forms of hypocrisy can include someone criticising someone for a fault while not considering their own faults. Hypocrisy is the general umbrella term for all of this. Treason can be considered as a form of hypocrisy.

Compare and contrast the beliefs in actions of the Puritans and Quakers?
Quakers and Puritans had very little in common in their beliefs. True both left England for religious freedoms. But aside from this, Quakers and Puritans had little in common. Puritans condemned Quakers in fact, persecuting them just as much as one of their "witches." Even though both are Protestant groups, one could say that the Puritans had more in common with radical Catholics than with other Protestants. Below is link to a chart of the two groups and the beliefs back to back. Hope it helps.

What was the most scandalist hypocricy?
Unfortunately hypocrisy is endemic in the human population. Some say hypocrisy was the sin most often vilified in the New Testament. And hypocrisy always sets up scandal. In politics hypocrisy is frequently a charge made against politicians. The reason for this is that politicians live in a world of multiple forces on multiple issues that range widely. A politician may have sincere beliefs about one topic or another and be challenged by his constituency to vote in a way that opposes those beliefs. Sometime this challenge comes on very important issues that the politician and his constituency feel very strongly about. But more often the issue is not one that is clearly defined morally, except by very few. This conflict brings about the charge of hypocrisy, which suddenly makes a minor issue a major concern. That is just politics. As far as what hypocrisy has been revealed to be the most scandalous it would probably be the hypocrisy of the people demanding more services and then demanding less taxes to pay for those services even as their taxes are lower than their neighbors. IMHO
