A KOSHER, not halal Thanksgiving!
Man, oh man I’m always looking for an excuse to tout cutie Ben Shapiro! I love Thanksgiving; it is actually my favorite holiday. Let’s see what truth-teller Ben has to say.
Before you watch the short (A.D.D. safe video) bear in mind that us public schoolers have been brain-washed for decades about how the bigoted, meanypants, patriarchal, xenophobic, evil WHITE MEN raped and pillaged the newly found continent. (Much like we are A.O.K. with Boko Haram literally raping and pillaging now.)
Did you know Squanto, who helped the pilgrims immeasurably, was a Christian who insisted on devoting his life to the “Englishman’s G-d”? Did you know that in 1623 a “communal” system of farming was trashed because it was an epic FAIL in a no-toilet-paper-in-Venezuela-sorta-way?
Did you know that it is Squanto himself, who had lived in Europe for several years and converted to Christianity who taught the settlers how to farm in a vastly different climate from that of Europe?
I’ll bet you didn’t know that communism has actually been tried on our soil before, with less than glowing results. Maybe this is why Leftists, particularly the academic intelligentsia work so hard to both re-write history and indoctrinate future “Kool-aid drinkers”.
William Bradford was the historian for the colonials; hence he WAS THERE so his writings are likely, no DEFINITELY relevant.
The experience that was had in this commone course and condition, tried sundry years, and that amongst godly and sober men, may well evince they [the] vanitie of that conceit of Plato’s and other ancients, applauded by some of later times; that the taking away of property, and bringing in community into a common wealth, would make them happy and florishing; as if they were wiser than God. For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much imployment that would have been to their benefite and comforte. For the young men that were most able and fit for labour and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to worke for other men’s wives and children, with out any recompence. The strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and cloaths, than he that was weake and not able to doe a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice. The aged and graver men to be ranked and equalised in labours, and victuals, cloaths, etc., with the meaner and younger sorte, thought it some indignite and disrespect unto them. And for men’s wives to be commanded to doe service for other men, as dresing their meate, washing their cloaths, etc., they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could many husbands well brooke it. Upon the point all being to have alike, and all to doe alike, they thought themselves in the like condition, and one as good as another; and so, if it did not cut of those relations that God hath set amongst men, yet it did at least much diminish and take of the mutuall respects that should be preserved amongst them. And would have been worse if they had been men of another condition. Let none objecte this is men’s corruption, and nothing to the course itself. I answer, seeing all men have this corruption in them, God in his wisdome saw another course fitter for them.
