In 1978, we took the RV and the kids up to Plymouth to see my wifes sister who lived there at the time. We visited Plymouth Plantation. During the tour, I was struck by the presence of fortified guard shacks in the town square and asked the guide if they were a last line of defense for the citizens there if trouble with the natives spilled into the compound. He told us that they were for the control of the FOOD RIOTS which broke out those first few winters BEFORE they wisely abandoned their clearly failed experiment with collectivism — before Marx was even born.
Seems each generation or so we must relearn the hard lessons of history.
OBOWMA will teach us the next round of such lessons. I suspect they will be BITTER ones indeed.
Have a wonderful day.

“Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our king and country, a voyage to plant the First Colony in the north part of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves into a civil body politic, for our better order and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue herself to enact, constitute and from such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitution and offices, which from time to time, as shall be thought most needed and convenient for the general good of the Colony, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witness whereof we have hereunder subscribed our names at Cape Cod, the 11th of November in the reign of our sovereign Lord King James. A. D. 1620”
One of my paternal ancestors was a King’s administrator and signatory to the Mayflower Compact. He was also the negotiator with the indian tribes, having done the same during a brief stay at the Jamestown colony. He was a hell-raiser and did not adhere to the tenants of the Pilgirms and was frequently in trouble with some of their elders but was a friend of John Bradford. His gravesite and I believe his house or a replica of it are still located in Plymouth.
Not everyone on the Mayflower was a Pilgrim or a socialist which is one reason why they threw out the concepts after about a year of starvation.
Who is Francis Cooke?
The schools will make sure very few people know this.
