In 1620 a group of Pilgrims soon to
arrive in Massachusetts (instead of Virginia where they intended to
settle because they were out of beer) signed a historic document
called the Mayflower Compact. They pledged to share the labor,
produce, and government of their new village in a new land. The
Mayflower Compact has been taught in American schools for almost 400
years as a "historic advance" in human government. It was taught in
school when I was in school.
During their first winter many of the
Pilgrims died of starvation and disease. In 1621 the Pilgrims managed to put
up some crude huts and plant some crops. When their meager
crops were harvested they invited local natives to bring food for a
feast of thanksgiving. They teetered on the brink of starvation
for 1622 as well. Governor Bradford wrote that young men who would be able to do more work were unwilling to work as hard as they could because they were not rewarded for their labors.
In 1623 the surviving Pilgrims scrapped
their “historic advance” in human government. It was a failure.
Community ownership of property, redistribution of produce and the
fruits of labor was a failure then as it always is. In 1623 the Pilgrims abandoned their
communal property redistribution system. They gave every family
their own land and private ownership of the production of their
labors. They instituted a free market system, and Massachusetts Bay
Colony thrived and prospered. In 1623 corn planting and harvesting greatly increased. There was plenty of beer for everyone. That part is NOT taught in American
Those who refuse to learn from history
are doomed to repeat it and voted for Odumbo.
