In 1978, we took the RV and the kids up to Plymouth to see my wife’s 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.

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.

Good point. Canada, FWIW was founded essentially on corporatism or corporate fascism if you will. Traders could not directly trade with natives. All items had to be sold to the Hudson Bay Company, which in turn sold those items to Europe at massive profits.
