Setup Finder's Arrange and Sort

Hello!
I wonder if there is a way to setup recursively, for all folders, details of appearance in Finder. In particular, I would like to have:
Always open in a list view
Arrange by Kind
Sort by Kind
I know I need to
sudo find / -name ".DS_Store" -depth -exec rm {} \;
and than to
killall Finder
But I certainly do not know how to make the above details default for all and always. Can you help?

Thanks!

1. Open Finder.
2. Right click in folder area.
3. Click on Show View Options.
4. Set options you want and click Use as Defaults.

I did that, but this does not propagate Arrange and Sort to any other folder (subfolder). That is why I asked if there is a method to propagate how I defined in my home directory.

Many thanks!
