Happy Thanksgiving! – “The true patron of this holiday feast – property rights”

The story of how the Pilgrims went from starving to plenty that I didn’t hear in school. In William Bradford’s own words:

The video title is The Pilgrims and Property Rights: How our ancestors got fat & happy.

Communal property was not acceptable to the married menfolk or the womenfolk. Especially the young, unmarried men. What do you suppose made everyone industrious?

Quote in the title above is from the video.
