Thanksgiving Gratitude Message In Remembrance of Liberty

Postby jpf1030 » Thu Nov 28, 2013 9:09 pm

Howdy All,

Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you. All of us living in areas of the planet still in some degree of liberty should be in especially thankful remembrance of this greatest God given blessing of having free will and freedom of choice in determining the course of our lives. That being said, we must also remember liberty is hanging by a thread in many places in which it manages to survive in some modicum.

The first settlers of the USA, being the catalyst of what we now celebrate on the much later decreed holiday of Thanksgiving Day, quickly discovered that coercion and control of people's free will almost killed them all off. Only when liberty was instated, did the pilgrims recover and survive. Though I've read much in historical events of this time period, I read a timely reminder today of this precious principle of liberty at the http://www.libertyunderfire.org/2011/11/1430/ website.

Though the author equates communalism with socialism and communism, I have to say there is a vast difference when properly applied. What my revelations have shown me is that communalism combined with stewardship is/could be the best societal system of all. Due to insatiable greed, corporatism has replaced true free market capitalism.

Even had it not, capitalism would not be as Godly a system as stewardship communalism. The latter is a developing revelation I've been processing and growing over the last 20+ years. It is far too involved a subject to go into detail in this posting. Of late, after studying systems of the last several hundred years as well as ancient ones, I'm working out the details of a 20x pay and 5% profit as a personal wealth growth in the system with consecrating the excess to the good of the community. If there is sufficient response inquiring for more detail, I will be happy to do an in-depth posting.

Stewardship communalism is 100% based upon liberty principles of free agency choices and self-initiative for self, followed by service to community. We are slowly planting the seeds in our BSOSC group as folks are able to receive them.

The excellent article from Liberty Under Fire shows why we are in more need than ever to develop a Godly economic system to free ourselves of the decimation of unfettered socialism and communism or to the other extreme, elite controlled corporatism.

I'm so eternally thankful and grateful for the opportunity via this venue to share & learn from you as we all ascend into being the best we can be in making the world a better place for our having been here...Happy Thanksgiving...jpf

By Dr. Harold Pease

Few realize that New England’s first form of government under the Pilgrims was communalism (socialism) where “each produced according to his ability and each received according to his needs,” more than two centuries before Karl Marx first penned the above script. The result of “share the wealth” then and now was, and always will be, shared poverty.

William Bradford, the colony’s governor its first 30 years, wrote of the agreement between the Pilgrim passengers and the financial “Adventurers” in his book Of Plymouth Plantation. He noted that the seven-year contract signed July 1, 1620, before leaving Plymouth England, stipulated that the Pilgrims were to pool, for common benefit, “all profits and benefits that are got by trade, traffic, trucking, working, fishing, or any other means of any person or persons…” It further noted “that at the end of the seven years, the capital and profits, viz. the houses, lands, goods and chattels, be equally divided betwixt the Adventurers and Planters…” During this time the colonists were to “have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock and goods of the said colony.” It doesn’t get more socialistic than this because the government divvied out the goods and loafers received the same as those who worked.

The first two years the result was shortages and starvation. About half the colonists died. No one did more than the minimal because the incentive to excel was destroyed. The industrious were neutralized. Bradford wrote of the scarcity of food “no supply was heard of, neither knew they when they might expect any.” The socialist experiment Bradford added, “was found to breed much confusion and discontent and retard much employment that would have been to the benefit and comfort. 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 work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense….” In other words, socialism made strong men lazy. In another book written by the same author, History of Plymouth Plantation, Bradford spoke of another problem because of the government created famine—thievery. Even in this Christian community, “much was stolen both by night and day….”

After two years of such, with the survival of the colony at stake, they contemplated upon “how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery.” They opted to abandon the incentive killing socialist contract in favor of the free market. And so they “assigned to every family a parcel of land, according to the proportion of their number, for that end…”

The effects were almost immediate. A delighted Governor Bradford wrote: “This had very good success, for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the Governor… could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little ones with them to set corn; which before would allege weakness and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.” In other words, the free market is a much greater stimulus than governmental force. The Pilgrims now wished to work because they got to keep the benefits of their labor. “Instead of famine now God gave them plenty,” Bradford wrote, “and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God…. Any general want or famine hath not been amongst them since to this day.”

Secure property rights are the key to prosperity for all who wish to work. When this right is threatened by confiscatory taxation or outright confiscation of property, or by excessive government rules and regulations governing such, whether planned as in a contract enforced by the government at Plymouth, or gradual as in our day, work and production slow and can eventually stop. The answer for them was to extract socialism from their midst as it is for us today as well. May we have the wisdom to do so?
