Socialism's Failure and The First Thanksgiving

Timothy Birdnow

Here is the story of how the Pilgrims nearly starved thanks to socialism - and how freeing the market made them prosper. It's why they were able to have the first Thanksgiving.

From the article:

Hardly. The "common property” approach killed off about half the settlers. Governor Bradford recorded in his diary that everybody was happy to claim their equal share of production, but production only shrank. Slackers showed up late for work in the fields, and the hard workers resented it. It’s called "human nature.”

The disincentives of the socialist scheme bred impoverishment and conflict until, facing starvation and extinction, Bradford altered the system. He divided common property into private plots, and the new owners could produce what they wanted and then keep or trade it freely.

The author goes on to discuss the failures of Socialism around the world and Robert Owen, the guy who founded New Harmony Indiana, a socialist community that went bust in two years.

It's a short read, so check it out.

1 Embarrassing history, so it probably isn't taught in our schools anymore. Besides, it was all a bunch of white men. . .

2 Yep. Now they teach the pilgrims were saved by the noble red man and were thanking THEM at the first Thanksgiving. It's a lie designed to denigrate both the Pilgrim's faith in God and their success with free enterprise.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.

The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.

Do not use the extended-release form of oxycodone to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days. This medication is not for occasional ("as needed”) use.
