Ok, the Thanksgiving story is different than what was taught in 2nd grade at school.
What happened is that the Pilgrims found that Socialism didn’t work when they had everyone put what they produced into a storehouse where everyone could take what they needed. After that failure, they started a free, Capitalist system. Once they did that, they then gave thanks with the Indians and started the New World / America.
"That’s right. Long before Karl Marx was even born, the Pilgrims had discovered and experimented with what could only be described as socialism. And what happened? It didn’t work!"

"why should I work for anyone else when all I am getting is the same as everyone else? There was no incentive to work harder."
Happy Thanksgiving!! Go Capitalism!
