In 2006 Ol' BC posted on Governor Bradford and the Pilgrims early Thanksgivings due to the Governor cancelling the communal experiment in the New World as people were starving and adopting a free enterprise system that allowed the settlement to flourish. It held true then as today. Communism and socialism fail. (My copy and paste feature doesn't work from this computer for some reason or I would have provided you a link. You can pull it up in the archives.)
Just a thought.
