Thanksgiving and Capitalism

Many people do not know this but America was founded by socialists who learned from their mistakes and became capitalists. Writer Jerry Bowyer described yesterday in Forbes Magazine how one of our earliest colonies in America learned from the failed system of collectivism. I encourage you to read "How a Failed Commune Gave Us What is Now Thanksgiving." Bottom line:  Collectivism violates the iron laws of human nature. It has always failed. It is always failing, and it will always fail. This early colony learned that a core tenet of abundance and prosperity was the ability to own private property. Their discovery led to the iconic Thanksgiving feast! Read and enjoy - and of course, be thankful for all you have and for the freedom we enjoy in our great nation.
