Collectivism nearly doomed the Pilgrims

Several important facts about the early years of the Pilgrims, after they landed in Plymouth, are omitted from the current telling of their history.  Few know today that the Pilgrims experimented with the kind of communal living that was advocated by Plato.  This collectivist experiment nearly doomed the colony, contributing greatly to much suffering in … Continue reading Collectivism nearly doomed the Pilgrims

I also like … Continue reading On thankfulness and apple pie
