"Meanwhile, what happens, meanwhile, meanwhile, a group of English people who are escaping the persecutions of James the first, the king, travel to Holland, they're there for a number of years, their kids start to lose the English, whatever culture, and suddenly they say we've got to go to the new world so they get on a ship called the Mayflower we've heard the story and they travel to what ends up as Plymouth Massachusetts. They land the ship there a hundred people very devoted to God very serious about God. They're praying that God would lead them. They get there. And they begin dying like flies. 50 of the hundred people die the first winter. Now, we can't even imagine this. I mean, you've got 6 kids. Can we even imagine what it would be like to lose half to lose your wife to lose your kids? I mean, they were all dying, burying their brothers, their sisters, their spouses, their kids, their parents. It's a nightmare. So spring comes, and they are, of course, wondering, do we go home? Because this is not working for them. And they really were wondering what do we do? And out of the Woods walks in Indian, called squanto. They happened to have settled on the very place where he grew up, but tucks at village the place where he grew up. He walks out of the Woods, speaking perfect English. Think about that for a second. An Indian walks out of the Woods speaking perfect English. He was in London for 5 years, more recently than they were. And he basically says, I have nothing to do with my life, my whole tribe, my family has been wiped out. You have settled on my home. Here I am, how can I help you? The pilgrims recognize this as an outrageous answer to their prayers because they have been weeping and praying to God. Why have you let us hear squanto just happens not only to no English perfectly. He just happens to know everything about that area because he grew up there. So he shows them how to get where to get lobsters, where to get how to get eels out of the mud, how to where to fish, how to fish. He shows them how to plant corn and how to plant a squash so that the squash grow up the vines grow up around the corn stalk. He shows them to put how to put a dead fish in when you plant the corn as fertilizer. He shows them everything and allows them to survive. There's no doubt. This is history, okay? And in fact, the pilgrim fathers William Bradford, who is the governor, wrote in his journal that squanto was a special instrument sent of God. He had no doubt. It's just one of those things that it was to them a miracle that he shows up out of nowhere. He has nothing to do except to say, this is my home. I'm here to help you. He not only that, but he brokers a deal with the surrounding tribes. So that these people so that these pilgrims have peace with the surrounding tribes. So these English men that have come the pilgrims, the Puritans. Had a piece that lasted 50 years, an incredible an incredible accomplishment and squanto basically helped them to do this. It's one of the most outrageous stories from our history that there's a miracle at the beginning of everything that happened in America. Is this outrageous miracle? The pilgrims didn't just happen to hang out because they wanted to. It all happened because squanto appears out of the Woods and miraculously happens to speak English miraculously happens to know everything about England, miraculously happens to have nothing to do because his whole tribe was wiped out and they adopt him and he just happens to know everything about that area to show them how to survive. I wanted to tell that story because we need to be thankful for God's hand in American history. I don't know how else you see it. If you see this as a coincidence, it's the craziest coincidence I've ever heard in my life. It doesn't make any sense. So I'm thankful for squander. We'll be right back. It's the Eric, metaxas show our website, go to metaxas talk, dot com, you can download the recording of the squanto story. I'm just so happy to share it every year and we'll be right back..

Bill Federer Shares the Story of Squanto

"One of the stories that we have to include is squanto. And if I have a few minutes, I'd be happy to share that. Continue. So the pilgrims were religious, but there were other groups that weren't and they were pirates. So Spain had a monopoly on the new world for at least a century, and they had gold from Inca Peru and portobello Panama and they take it to Cuba and ship it and these Dutch and French and English pirates would raid the gold, but they would also sail up the coast of North America. Lure unsuspecting Indians on board, lock them below deck, take them over to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. So one of the Indians that was captured was squanto and the story is he was purchased by some monks in Spain who gave him his freedom. He hitchhikes his way across Europe, gets to England. He's there for a dozen years working, learning the language and the family finds some business that takes him to Newfoundland, right? A fishing type outfit. And then he gets the boat to drop him off at Plymouth, Massachusetts, only to find his whole tribe is dead. They were wiped out by a plague, William Bradford writes that three years earlier, a French ship was shipwrecked off the case, the coast of Cape Cod. Sailors got ashore, Indians never left watching them and bogging them, till they got the advantage killed them all, but three or four maybe sport with them worse than slaves. Anyway, one of those French men must have had an illness and the Indians didn't have immunity and it wipes out the tribe. So sort of in a reverse sense had squanto not been captured in kidnapped. He most certainly would have died. But squanto is living with the neighboring wampanoag tribe and then that fall is when the pilgrims show up. Half of the pilgrims die the first winner. They wouldn't have survived another year. Spring of 1621, walking into their camp is squanto. And you can just picture the conversation. I mean, he's in his loincloth and he goes up and he goes, oh yeah, you guys from London, I used to live there. You know, oh yeah, the pump down on war street or St. Paul's chapel. He goes, oh, yeah, yeah, I know that place. And then he says, oh, this place here, I grew up here. I know this place like the back of my hand over that hill is a spring. And William Bradford says he taught him how to catch fish. He said, you know, that they weren't successful, but he says, don't use salmon. They spawn this river. It's going to be packed. And then he taught him how to plant corn. They said, we tried it. He goes, no, you got to dig a hole, put some fish in, then put the kernel of corn and cover it up. The fish decompose fertilizes the soil. You have a nice harvest. Bottom how to take the corn and put it in a pot, shake it and make popcorn, right? And then he taught him how to go down to the riverbank squeegee in the mud and catch eels and clams and lobsters and then how to catch beaver skins. It took 40 years worth of beaver skins to pay off their debt for the boat ride,

"And yeah, so then to talk about just for a second here, Bill, they tried socialism, didn't they? And it didn't go well. Yeah, this is interesting. So the pilgrims didn't have money and so they approached investors in England who formed the London company and the company had bylaws. And they weren't really thrilled with this and they were sort of at the very last minute already on the boat and they come with these papers and you say you got a shot. So they signed it. But these bylaws specify that everything would be owned in common. Everything gained by cooking, hunting, fishing, trading, Sean go into common stock. And everyone's already have their meat drinking apparel in all provision out of stock. So everybody works goes into this pot. And then everybody gets paid out of it. They tried it. And they almost starved to death. William Bradford, the governor of the pilgrims, writes the failure of that experiment of communal service, which was tried for several years by good and honest men proves the emptiness of the theory of Plato and other ancients applauded by some of latter times that the taking away of private property and possession of it in community would make the state happy and flourishing as if they were wiser than God for in this instance community of property was found to breed much confusion and discontent regard much employment for the young men who were most able and fit for service, objected to being forced to spend their time and strength in working for other men's wives and children without any recompense. The stronger men or the resourceful men had no more share of food closing center than the weak man who was not able to do a quarter with the other good. This was thought injustice. The agent engraved men who were ranked in equalized and labor food closed et cetera with the humbler and younger ones thought it some indignity and disrespect. And then I thought this was interesting. He says, as for men's wives, who are obliged to do service for other men, such as cooking, washing their clothes, et cetera, they considered it a kind of slavery. And many husbands would not brook it or allow it. And William Bradford goes on. None argue that this is due to human failing rather than to his communistic plan of life in itself. He says I answer that God had another plan of life fitter for them. And so they began to consider how to raise more corn, after much debate. It was decided each man would plant corn for his own household. But a novel idea, incredible. And it says every family was assigned a parcel of land. This was very successful. It made hands more industrious. The women now went willingly into the field, but their little ones with them to plant corn while before they would allege weakness and to have compelled them would have been thought great oppression. So here are these really religious people. I mean, there's good as you can get. They tried owning everything in common, almost starved.

There's Things That We Have to Be Thankful For...

"There's things that we have to be thankful for. Do not forget to count your blessings. Don't let stress in the perception of depression to make you forget all of the wonderful things that God has done in your life, all of your great accomplishments, you've got to look at the good with the bad. But be thankful. This is your opportunity to be thankful. And I just want to give some context to Thanksgiving. I know a lot of people may not understand the true history of it. People may only think that Thanksgiving is about neck bones, collard greens, chitlins, at least that's what I remember Thanksgiving to be. However, my wife refused to cook me chitlins. But I understand they smell like crap. So she don't want to cook them. But anybody out there that know how good chitlins is when you put some hot sauce on it, especially y'all people from the south, you know what I'm talking about. I'll miss those chipmunk. But let me just read this to you. And I think this is very well laid out. My producer sent it to me and I think that it was pretty good. It says, let us let all give thanks to what we are thankful for. In autumn of 1621, Plymouth colony governor William Bradford urged his brethren to observe a Thanksgiving Day observations observance, I'm sorry, for God's harvest, blessings with pilgrims and Native Americans who helped him. In 1777, after the Revolutionary War, victory over the British at the Sarah Saratoga, the second Continental Congress declared that there should be a day of Thanksgiving.

The Pilgrims Found Out Early That Socialism Did Not Work

"Rush said, long before Karl Marx was even born, long before Karl Marx was a sperm cell in his father's dreams, the pilgrims had discovered an experimented with what could only be described. As socialism, and they found it didn't work. Now it wasn't called that then, but that's exactly what it was. Everybody given an equal share. You know what happened? Nobody did anything. There was no incentive, nothing worked nothing happened. And so William Bradford, after putting everybody in a common store, they wanted to be fair, they wanted everybody to at least have a shot at survival, but it did not work. There was no prosperity. There was no creativity. And again, because there was no incentive to be creative. And that's why they came up with this idea of letting every man be a zone man. To live in those early days, the American Dream. And that's really what they were celebrating on that first Thanksgiving. Because they were able to pay off their debts. Soon people in the old world were beginning to hear about the prosperity that was happening. In the new world. And they came here. And it was that early beginning where we almost lost what would have been America because of socialism that the pilgrims embraced capitalism, and as a result, they were able to flourish.

"Into space, this was something that was not looked at as easy. There was not a genuine consensus by the time of this speech that this was where we know to be spending money, that there was a real fascination with what can we do and what can we become if we choose this path towards space exploration. It was interesting that he also then quotes William Bradford and the founding of Plymouth bay colony. Who said that all great and honorable actions are accompanied with great difficulties in both must be enterprise and overcome with answerable courage. In other words, this angle means he's laying it out. He doesn't want anybody to come to think, okay, this can be just easily conquered. This idea that we could go to the moon or space exploration is going to be something that is going to be fraught with without danger that everybody can do it. He's laying no, this is not what is happening. But what he also then continues on. He says that man in his quest for knowledge and progress is determined and can not be deterred. The x-rays of space will go ahead, whether we join in it or not, and it is one of the greatest adventures of all time and no nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in the race for space. He also then as an interesting paragraph, the next paragraph basically is a real direct threat, direct shot across the ballot, Russia, when he says, look, we're going to go there for freedom and we're going to continue invention and we're going to go to space with a manner of freedom and peace, unlike the conquest that many would fear Russia or others would have. Again, setting it up in being very contrast terms that the people would understand and what they're looking at. This gives a speech that is looking forward, examines the reality of the world, and then looks forward as we go. Then

"To feel the pain and I want to look her in the eyes. YouTube is also full of broadcasts, which say santilli is really a government informant. A charge he denies. Since his arrests, until he has been declared a danger to the community and a flight risk. In this declaration for the U.S. district court in Oregon, until he says he can understand why the judge expressed concern about some of his statements, he says that while he turned over his firearms as requested by authorities, he said on the air, I buried my guns because I wanted people to think that they could not simply file a false restraining order against me as a means to take away my firearms. He goes on to say he didn't want people to think he was defenseless. He also explained why he said he'd shoot anyone who comes busting through my door at 4 o'clock in the morning, saying he wasn't talking about law enforcement. Pete santilli and his girlfriend live in this tiny mount Washington apartment building on the second floor. In his negotiations with federal authorities, he says in these documents that he's willing to let the FBI come in and search his apartment anytime they want. And if the federal judge releases him, he's also willing to let the FBI install surveillance cameras in his apartment. In my Washington, rich jaffe, local 12 news. No word at this point. Mainly question there is, why is anybody negotiating with this guy? You know, I mean, this is part of the problem, in my view. Now, we've only been featuring focusing on one guy. And that isn't the intent of this piece. But you have to look at his additional influences. You've got guys like Alex Jones. Right? The late Rush Limbaugh. I already mentioned Tucker Carlson. There's a bunch of these people. Dave rubinstein, who's that whiny guy, we talk about John Frank Nancy. Ben Shapiro. Hi, I'm Ben Shapiro. And this is reality check. Another guy who wants to rewrite basically tells indigenous people that Thanksgiving is our version of Thanksgiving is BS. Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and once again, we'll be treated to the usual dumbed down version of the Thanksgiving story. What Europeans landed in America fleeing religious persecution were too dumb to farm and relied on the wise Native Americans to help them. Then they had a meal together and learned to share. After which, the white Europeans genocide at the Native Americans, let's watch some football. The whole story is much more interesting. It's also not particularly friendly to leftists. The Puritans who came to Massachusetts on the Mayflower were not emissaries of religious tolerance. They actually left liberal Holland to push for, quote, the glory of God and advancement of the Christian faith as it says right in the Mayflower compact. Turns out, Christianity was much more important than multiculturalism to the heroes of Plymouth rock. And Christianity, not multiculturalism, saved the Puritans. The first winter, half the new settlers died. That was because of drought and plague and failure to understand the crops. Then, squanto showed up. Now squanto wasn't just a Native American refugee from the Disney movie, Pocahontas, jabbering about the colors of the wind. He was a Christian. Apparently, squanto was just a boy when he met the English for the first time. He was promptly captured and sent back to England for training as a guide. In 1614, he came back to America with John Smith, and then he was kidnapped again by one of smith's men, sent back to Spain and sold into slavery. Spanish monks bought him, taught him Christianity. He somehow ended up in England, earned the respect of an English man who paid for his passage back to the new world. In 1619, squanto finally went home. But by the time he got back, his entire village had been killed by disease. One year later, the pilgrims showed up and happened to settle right there in squanto's devastated village. Governor William Bradford wrote that squanto quote became a special instrument sent of God for our good. He never left us till he died. It was Christian squanto, not Native Americans generally who taught the pilgrims how to farm. I think not so here's the truth, and from the indigenous perspective. Hey guys, this is Vincent chilling. I am agusta named Mohawk. The European settlers really appreciated the help of squanto. Squanto was a native man who supposedly helped the settlers of the time and talk to them how to harvest. But the fact batteries he was actually kidnapped brought to Spain when he got back. He discovered upon arriving back to the states that his entire community his entire tribal community was gone dead from disease or scuffles with settlers killed, it was a very sad tale very sad. And this is the biggest atrocity of them all. This is why we celebrate Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Day proper is actually a commemoration of the pequot massacre, the pequot Indians were killed in the Massachusetts bay colony. The colony members discovered a man who was dead in a boat. The colony members automatically blamed piqua Indians. And decided to burn down the villages and this includes hundreds, probably approximately 400 men, women and children were burned to death. Stat killed slashed. After the discovery of the body, English major John mason rallied his troops to further burn pequot wigwams and attacked and killed hundreds of men, women and children. So, governor of Plymouth, William Bradford at the time, he wrote, those that escaped the fire were slain with the sword. Some huge to pieces, others run through with their rap years so that they were quickly dispatched and very few escaped. It was conceived. They thus destroyed about 400 at this time. It was a fearful sight to see then thus frying in the fire, horrible was the stink and sent thereof, but the victory seemed a sweet sacrifice. The day after the massacre, William Bradford, who was also the governor of Massachusetts bay. Colony wrote from that day forth shall be a day of celebration and Thanksgiving for subduing the pequots and for the next 100 years every Thanksgiving Day ordained by a governor. Was an honor of the bloody victory, taking God that the battle had been won. This is the biggest atrocity of the mall, and this is why we celebrate Thanksgiving as a culture here in the United States. Ben Shapiro. More on our point though. So we told you about numerous platforms that this gentleman has been on. And it's still on in some of these other personalities we've mentioned not talking about the government side, but broadcast personalities per se. Independent media, which we're included in that as well here on their show. But basically, though, we have two questions for you. We may even do a poll on this. I don't know, but if you pick up this show and you feel the desire to email us back, we'd love to hear about what you think about these two questions. Again, you can reach us at hosts with an S, host at native opinion dot com. But should there be an amendment? Or an adjustment, rather, should I say to the First Amendment, which gives the United States citizens the right to free speech? Some kind of a modification. And also, in addition to holding people like Sam santilli or gates or anyone else who is out there promoting inflamed speech, shall we say? Or even promoting violence..

Happens to have nothing to do because his whole tribe was wiped out and they adopt him. And he just happens to know everything about that area to show them how to survive.

"Show and we're talking about how the pilgrims came to be the pilgrims, the book is titled the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it, the prequel to America's freedom of the author, William Federer on the line. Bill, you were talking about really, it's just amazing to me. If you don't mind backtracking a little bit, because there's so many things unfolding at the same time. So let me put the needle back on the record. Right. Well, the idea is that Muslims are invading Europe surrounding Vienna, 1529. The reformation started in 1517 and now we got this internal and external disruption of Europe. The older Roman Emperor, Charles V of Spain, he has the biggest empire on Planet Earth. I mean, the Philippines are named after his son, king Philip of Spain. And he has all the new world. He's taken the gold from the new world to fit on his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean. Anyway, he's faced with his double dilemma, reformation out inside and based on the outside. He actually strikes a deal with the protestants. It's called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I speak a little German and that's a fun number. It's own 1400 proven folks. 55. That's the first treaty ever to recognize protestants and in this treaty is a little Latin phrase that made a big difference. It's cool ratio to religio, which means whose is The Rain? Is a religion? So in other words, look Protestant king, believe it ever you want in your kingdom. Let's just work together against these Muslims who are invading Europe because they sort of want to kill us all. Well, this started a domino effect in the next century where different kings fully different things. And Sweden and Germany were Lutheran Switzerland Calvin and Scotland Presbyterian England was Anglican Holland Dutch reform. And of course, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, remained

"And that meal that was shared between those at that interaction was written down in a guy named William Bradford's journal. Which then was later reinterpreted. It was one paragraph, and it was from that paragraph that we came to celebrate what is now known what is now known as Thanksgiving. Yeah, that makes sense. I thought that the pilgrims just got there during Thanksgiving and when they got there, they wanted to make peace right away. So then they had that dinner. But. That's not true. You know what? You bring up a really good point because that's often left out of the story that we tell the young people. It's like, oh, the pilgrims came and they were peaceful. And the native people welcomed them and then they shared meal together. And that's why we celebrate Thanksgiving because kumbaya is native people came together with these settlers and now all of us are going to be really grateful and we're going to engorge yourself with this humongous meal and then we're going to go shopping on Friday. Yeah, that's really what I think of. What I find really fascinating about the holiday is how something like that could have happened like this meal that was supposed to signify peace between native people and good relations between native people and what is now known as the U.S. government. How that has not actually ever been actualized. Does that make sense? Actualized. Thanksgiving is meant to be a celebration. Of good relations between native people and early colonizers. And so the question is, for me, when I think of this holiday, I think about whether or not we actually are in good relationship with native people. You know? And since we're native people, the question is, are treaty rights being upheld? I treat weights, our right to land are right to water, our rights to self governance, our rights to protect ourselves, our rights to equality and justice. And the right to, you know, for our people to be who they are, who they want to be and who they want to raise their children to be. And that's how I think about sovereignty. It's like this opportunity for us as. Native people for us to self determine. That's what that means for us to decide for ourselves. What we would like to do as a nation for ourselves as individuals and for all of our community members and our people at large..

"When he punches him in the face with the giant bag of money, I enjoyed that. That was pretty good. When me over, I was very happy with the movie at this point. So then we get the credits proper or second credits, I guess. And we jump to 13 years later they're on the Mayflower heading to the new world. And William Bradford is narrating, oh, it's been a hard trip. Many of us are, I wanted one person on the book to be like, hey, William, do you mind not narrating how much this thing you did sucks? All very hungry and thirsty. It's a good thing I brought plenty of ink in a giant barrel to write this instead of packing more food. Thank you. Right, yeah, exactly. And of course, they have to sell the lie. They're like only the new world can offer what we seek, religious freedom, and it's like, no, no, no, no. At this point, you're running from the fact that your kids are getting all Holland. Right? You were already allowed anyway, yeah. But what we learned here is that William is kind and humble and sets about resolving arguments when people try to throw that nice old man's Jack overboard. Okay, I am so excited about the truth of this story because I was like, this is such a weird detail to put in and apparently like a bunch of the Bradford history's focus on this miracle of the Jack. Let's hope this never means masturbating. What happened was during the storm, the captain came down and he was like, hey, you guys brought a bunch of unnecessary construction equipment. Please throw it overboard, so we don't sink and William Bradford was like, no, I'm keeping my excavator in the bottom of this book. And like the captain said, the masthead crashed into the bottom of the boat. And the way William Bradford does the story, the problem he caused. He was like, great.

"And those so far away folks it's here for taxis show. That's Karen Carpenter. We're talking about squanto and the miracle of Thanksgiving. I wrote a book about this, I guess came out about 15 years ago and a lot of people tell me they read it every Thanksgiving. They probably don't know that I wrote it, but I'm the author of this book. And it's a story that I discovered, I guess, when was this? Like, over 20 years ago, I discovered the story. I did the original research. And I said, this is the most amazing story nobody knows the story. A lot of people have heard of squanto the Indian who helped the pilgrims and did this in that. But anyway, where we left off our story is that he comes back from Europe to have you ever heard this story Chris? I don't even know you don't know this story. No, I don't. I mean, I know the story of squanto is sort of the Indian helper, but not the crazy. I'm just checking. I mean, it sounds like a back tracking excursion gone crazy. It's insane. But it's insane. So here's so here's what we left off before the break. So he comes home just imagine that you're sold into slavery and somehow ten years later you make your way home so now he's 21 years old, whatever 22 years old, he's looking for his family. There's nobody there. They've all died. They've been wiped out by smallpox. One of these diseases brought by the white man, obviously unintentionally. So he goes to a neighboring tribe and lives with them. But the neighboring tribe, it's not like they're like, hey, hey, we're all Native Americans. We're cool. No. This is like strangers. He might as well be in England. He'd probably prefer to be in England. In fact, he ends up living alone in the Woods because he's heartbroken. It's just one of these crazy stories. Meanwhile, what happens meanwhile, meanwhile, a group of English people who are escaping the persecutions of James the first, the king, traveled to Holland they're there for a number of years, their kids start to lose, you know, the English, whatever culture and stuff they say, we've got to go to the new world, so they get on a ship called the Mayflower we've heard the story and they travel to what ends up as Plymouth Massachusetts. They land the ship there a hundred people very devoted to God very serious about God. They're praying that God would lead them. They get there and they begin dying like flies. 50 of the hundred people die the first winter. Now we can't even imagine this. I mean, you've got 6 kids. Can we even imagine what it would be like to lose half to lose your wife to lose your kids? I mean, they were all dying, burying their brothers, their sisters, their spouses, their kids, their parents. It's a nightmare. So spring comes, and they are, of course, wondering, do we go home? Because this is not working for them. And they really were wondering what do we do? And out of the Woods, walks in Indian, called squanto. They happened to have settled on the very place where he grew up, but tucks it village the place where he grew up. He walks out of the Woods, speaking perfect English. Think about that for a second. An Indian walks out of the Woods speaking perfect English. He was in London for 5 years, more recently than they were. And he basically says, I have nothing to do with my life my whole tribe, my family has been wiped out. You have settled on my home. Here I am, how can I help you? The pilgrims recognize this as an outrageous answer to their prayers, because they have been weeping and praying to God, why have you let us hear what this is, squanto just happens not only to know English perfectly. He just happens to know everything about that area because he grew up there. So he shows them how to get where to get lobsters where to get how to get eels out of the mud, how to fit where to fish, how to fish. He shows them how to plant corn and how to plant a squash so that the squash grow up, the vines grow up around the corn stalk. He shows them to put how to put dead a dead fish in when you plant the corn as fertilizer. He shows them everything and allows them to survive. There's no doubt. This is history, okay? And in fact, the pilgrim fathers, William Bradford, who is the governor. Wrote in his journal that squanto was a special instrument sent of God. He had no doubt. It's just one of those things that it was to them a miracle that he shows up out of nowhere. He has nothing to do except to say this is my home. I'm here to help you. He not only that, but he brokers a deal with the surrounding tribes. So that these people so that these pilgrims have peace with the surrounding tribes. So these English men that have come the pilgrims, the Puritans. Had a piece that lasted 50 years, an incredible, an incredible accomplishment and squanto basically helped them to do this. It's one of the most outrageous stories from our history that there's a miracle at the beginning of everything that happened in America. Is this outrageous miracle? The pilgrims didn't just happen to hang out because they wanted to. It all happened because squanto appears out of the Woods and miraculously happens to speak English, miraculously happens to know everything about England, miraculously, happens to have nothing to do because his whole tribe was wiped out and they adopt him. And he just happens to know everything about that area to show them how to survive. Now this is, again, this is document that this is not my spin on the story. So basically, I remember when I did the research on this, 20 something years ago, I said, what am I missing? This is like crazy miracle. Like this doesn't make any sense. When you think about the fact that he's kidnapped, the whole thing, and this has all been documented. And there's some questions. I mean, there's questions about some of the details, but everything I'm saying is basically that's it. And I have to say that to not see this as God's hand in history seems to me to be willfully blind, because this really the Mayflower, the pilgrims, that's the DNA of America. More so than Jamestown, if you know our history. That colony and everything that followed. So I wanted to tell that story because we need to be thankful for God's hand in American history. I don't know how else you see it. If you see this as a coincidence, it's the craziest coincidence I've ever heard in my life. It doesn't make any sense. I'm thankful for squander. We'll be right back. It's the Eric metaxas show our website, go to my taxes talk dot com, you can download the recording of the squanto story. I'm just.

"Hey everybody, welcome to this special Thanksgiving episode of the Charlie Kirk show with my friend, the legendary. James golden. Otherwise known as Beau snored James, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Surely it is so good to be here, especially Thanksgiving. Wow, what a great what a great. Charlie, I love your casual look. Thank you. I appreciate that. You know, sometimes you just got to be able to move about, you know, and the suit and tie, you know, maybe I could graduate to just the polo shirt like rush used to do, right? Right, right? Yeah. Just the polo shirt. But say something, you just mentioned Russian. Let me just say something to everybody that doesn't know. Rush really made a big deal of how much he enjoyed meeting you Charlie and how vital he thought you were to the future of this nation. And I've told you that too many times over. It may rush and I had many a discussion about you, Charlie, we both talked about you to each other and what our expectations. I'm sorry, yeah, we have expectations of you. What our expectations were because when we see in you, what Russia knew what I see in you and I've told you this from the very beginning. You are a natural leader of people. You have a charisma about you that you can't, I mean, look, you can't teach anybody how to do this. You have natural leadership qualities. And what you've been able to do with turning point and what you've been able to do just in the past few years with organizing people, especially young people in this country is nothing short of phenomenal. Thank you. And rush love the time that he spent with you. He talked about you on the air and how impressed he was with you and what you're doing and we just are also grateful to you and the work that you're doing moving the conserve, not just conservative, but you're moving a very an optimistic American message into the next generation and into the future. Well, thank you. That touches me. And we miss him, but I want to say James, you played a role in the growth at turning point. You spoke at our conferences for years, and we were just small little group at the local hotel, remember? You would always show up and look how far we've come. It's really, it's really amazing. So thank you for saying that. And you have a book out. Rush on the radio. Tell us about that. You know, it is what I hope Charlie to do is to give people a behind the scenes look at who Russian bought really was not as defined by his critics on the left who never listened to the program who never took the time to really delve into who rushed them but was what it was about. And also to give people kind of a behind the scene looks at what it was like working with him. And I bet about my own background on how we came to work together. So one of the things that I hope that we accomplished in this book is not only was rushed in amazing professional at what he did. He earned every single accolade that he got in terms of for his success as a broadcaster. And as the best broadcaster of our times, and he earned that through hard work through perseverance do not giving up when there were many times where his career could have stalled permanently, but he just kept going at it. And then he had the most amazing success. So yes, rush was the most important broadcaster to me of our generation. If it were not for his success in reviving a.m. radio, first of all, when it was when it's death throes. And then his program brought in a rash of other talk shows. It grew talk radio into a medium that played a large role in shaping and still does America's body politic and also our culture. But he also impacted what we see on television. And the cable news landscape. And the publishing landscape, especially for conservative authors because of the multi-million sales he had as an author. And then with children's book with he and his wife Catherine. This man left an amazing footprint for American radio television and print. And that just touches the surface of it. I mean, my political journey started listening to WOS and Chicago. Rush Limbaugh from it would be let me think about this. It would be from 11 central to two. That's right. Just make sure I get it right. And my lunch used to be from one 17 to two O three. And so I used to go to my old silver Ford explorer and listen to rush and I was like, who is this guy? He gives me the courage and the confidence to say what I really believe. And that was when rush was just dominating. That was back in 2010, 2011, not that he never stopped dominating. He was always dominant, but that was a time when he kind of really created the Tea Party movement. And in some sense, it's when all of a sudden a.m. radio then became an actual political movement, which was something that was really special. And so this being Thanksgiving James talked to us a little bit and again, the book is, I want everyone to pick it up. Rush on the radio by James golden talk to us what rush used to do on Thanksgiving or the day before Thanksgiving that he really got famous for. Rush wrote in his first book, the way things ought to be a chapter about what he called old dead white guys. And there was well in it, he talked about the original Thanksgiving and how what we learned in school Thanksgiving the Native Americans coming to save the pilgrims butts wasn't the real story of Thanksgiving. The real story of Thanksgiving through the eyes of William Bradford and the first colony that tried to empty successfully come here and start a colony. And they failed the first time because they tried a collectivism approach, a socialist approach, where everybody would work collectively toward one toward one greater goal. And what happened? Was it some people were lazy? They didn't see the benefit of working hard so that others benefited. And as a result, the first attempt to colonize led to horror, I mean starvation difficulties in order time. Now Bradford, William Bradford saw the error of his ways. And what they tried next was an approach where every family would have their own plot of land to work. As hard or as little as they wanted to. And what this produced was prosperity because people saw the value in working for themselves and how an individual effort took over and prosperity came, and this is what they were thankful for. The success and they shared this bounty with the Native Americans. That was the truth story of Thanksgiving. If you want to boil it down to the parlors today, it was the battle between socialism and capitalism and capitalism, one, and as a result, in American society, we still to a large degree or to some degree, have a capitalist mentality where it is up to you and your individual achievement and desire and ambition to succeed. And if you have all of those things, America is still a land of opportunity. That's so beautiful. And rush would he had a famous kind of Christmas series he would do and a famous Thanksgiving series he would do. Talk to us more about the man of that rush was just his optimism doing three hours of radio a day. I could say from personal experience, two hours is.

"Months brought but little relief Despite the agricultural guidance from their native Friends prosperity seemed to be continually further and further out of reach Their communal agreement was falling apart under the weight of low morale Young men grew to resent the amount of physical labor they were taking on just to have the lion's share of their efforts go to feeding the families of other men Governor William Bradford wrote of the troubles in his journals The failure of this experiment of communal service which was tried for several years and by good and honest men proves the emptiness of the theory of Plato and other ancients applauded by some of later times but the taking away of private property and the possession of it in community by a Commonwealth would make a state happy and flourishing as if they were wiser than God For in this instance community of property was found to breed much confusion and discontent But the young men that were able and fit for labor and service objected that they should spend their time and strength working for other men's families And the women were unhappy too They considered it a kind of slavery he says and many husbands would not brook it This feature would have been worse still if they had been men of an inferior Class Provisions began to dry up the community began to fail They didn't have a way out until Bradford saw that there needed to be another form of governance And so he took it upon himself to search descriptors to see what God might have to say The governor decided to assign every family their own plot of land according to the number of people in each family And he allowed them to plant crops to benefit their own households and sell excess crops in production No longer would the labor of a household be divided unjustly You reap what you so became the law of the colony and the results were immediate Bradford wrote of the astonishing change in attitude in his colonists saying this was very successful Bounty began to pour forth from the colony and soon they were able to set up trading outposts and began trading resources with their neighbor with their native neighbors Three years after that first disastrous harvest season governor William Bradford decreed a day of Thanksgiving for the pilgrim colony They gathered together to worship and thank the almighty God What we don't know exactly if they invited their Indian neighbors We do know that they were there These days we teach the story of Thanksgiving is only a tale of pilgrims holding a feast to think their Native American neighbors for their help But this is not the day that we necessarily recognize as a first official Thanksgiving of a united country but we can look at it as the origin of what we know as Thanksgiving And while our infant nature would go on to endure tumultuous and even embarrassing times the stories of this first Thanksgiving serve as proof that this nation was founded on the notion that only freedom can offer prosperity Collectivism nearly sunk the American experiment before it began But the spirit of individual liberty and innovation found a way to thrive and that is our rightful legacy Our forefathers learned the hard way so that we today in this awesome wonderful bountiful nation could have the luxury of doing nothing else One day a year but taking the time to offer thanks to our creator surrounded by friends and allies just like the pilgrims on that first Thanksgiving Ladies and gentlemen that is the truncated version of the first Thanksgiving here in America You can hear the full thing on my podcast just.

"And host of just listen to yourself with kera Davis I also have a hallmark podcast if you want to listen to that or my friend Amelia Hamilton and I break down hallmark movies We love it It's called a very Mary podcast But today right now I want to tell you the true story of the first Thanksgiving Thanksgiving tradition in America has come to be symbolized by pilgrims and Indians sharing a Turkey at the dinner table but it's much more than that In the early 1600s a group of Puritans left London in search of a place to practice their religion freely They felt the Church of England needed reform but in those days the Church of England and state were one So to dissent from the church membership was tantamount to treason so the separatist Puritans chose exile rather than conformity and they headed to Holland where they hoped they would find freedom to worship as they pleased The Holland wasn't the land of plenty that they'd hoped for so they decided amongst themselves to pick up and move once again this time with their sights set on the new world A 102 people made that 66 day voyage aboard the Mayflower and landed in Plymouth It must have been terrifying surely there was hunger and cold and fear of the unknown whatever greeted them on the shores of the new world they would just have to cope with What greeted them was a fertile but hostile land and a curious native people who are understandably not big fans of these new inhabitants The pilgrims elected a governor William Bradford and began the hard work of settling their colony The colony established a charter with their European sponsors and agreed to govern themselves communally All harvests and productions would go into a communal store to be distributed equally among the colonists It seemed like the ideal system no longer would individual families have to worry about where their provisions would come from Everyone would have equal access to provision which would of course give them time and motivation to establish the economy and the colony It would be a bold experiment in communal governance That first winter in Plymouth was unsurprisingly harsh but the subsequent.

"Are paying one hundred thousand dollars to travel into space The whole ozone layer this whole back in the eighties. Right remember that well. They decided to ban cfc with the idea of protecting the ozone layer. Because guess what if we don't have the ozone layer basically We all just get caught on fire. The whole planet just burns okay. We all get radiation. It's a mess. It's not a good thing There's not a good scenario without an ozone layer so they actually did some stuff here and said. Hey let's try to stop this so banning the cfc's it looks like it's actually working yet. We finally have some good news on the whole climate change frontier because not only is it helping to make the ozone hole smaller but it is also shaving. A few degrees off of global warming so good job eighties us. We did great on this. I actually i just did. A couple of episodes three episodes to be exact on climate change global warming. The first one was about the financial impact of climate change. And then i did something on the wildfires smoke and then the water so check those out. It's over on learning more. There's a link in the podcast description. Here it's episode number sixteen seventeen and eighteen of learning more. Please do go check that out if you get a chance. It is also national working parents day today now both parents working how many of us are dealing with that about forty. Six percent of households are dealing with with the mother and father working and that is for the households with a mother and father. That's how they did the research and now at least one parent being employed. Well that's eighty eight percent of families with children. Now that's actually down from ninety one percent the previous year and i guess there's covert to blame for that and so here's the thing. A lot of us are working from home. Now right and national working parents day we got to think about working from home and being a parent and that can be a little tough right well. Because you know you're bringing your work home with you literally. You're not leaving your office ever. You could literally never stop working. But let's think of some of the advantages here. Well you know this means that maybe there's time for making dinner. Maybe there's time for taking a break in the middle of the day and go throwing a ball with your kid or just picking him up dropping him off from school. Whatever it is work life balance is very important. Make sure you shut off that computer to certain time in walkaway from those devices so that you do get that time with your kids for especially for today from national working parents. Day is also national. Step family day to day and looking at that. Same data from the previous story there well over thirty percent of the population under eighteen. Live in a stepfamily. So here's a day for you. And of course i had mentioned the brady bunch i mean. Come on the most famous stepfamily of all. It is also national. Plato day today. And as i mentioned in the open there i love the smell. I don't know why maybe it just takes me back. To childhood thing was though plato. Originally it wasn't meant to be a toy. it was actually meant to be a wallpaper cleaner seventies. is that right. Yeah joe mcvicker Made this stuff. It was a simple mixture was basically water flour and salt. Those are the main ingredients of and may turn it into a toy. They made red blue yellow and white. And as we're the only brands now of course there's about fifty different colors available. Of course if you make something then it all just turns into that weird gray color it is also national cinnamon raisin bread day today per slice yet about one hundred calories in this thing which since. We did the story on the boston cream doughnut. I believe that was three hundred calories. So you can have three slices of cinnamon raisin bread or one of those boston cream donuts from dunkin. Choose whatever you want. I won't judge. It is national guacamole day today as well and this one. I'm going to judge on. 'cause i love me some guacamole and if you don't make a right not going to be happy. So what do you do. I'll tell you some ways to make it but first let's talk about. The origins of this comes from central mexico. Where avocados just grow naturally right there. There and aztecs were there so they started kind of making guacamole and guess what they didn't call the avocado and avocado originally. It was called an alligator pear. I think that's actually united states. That gave it that horrible name but eventually it would become avocado. I can't imagine eating alligator pear toast at just doesn't work anyway. So here's what you do for guacamole. First of all you can either. You got an option here. If you like chunky then you're gonna use one of those Like potato masters. If you don't like it chunky like it more creamy than us a couple of folks. I squish it down with a couple of folks i and you know all you have to do really is add some garlic and some salt and some lime and you are good that is all you need typically for guacamole but you can also add some of the same ingredients that you would add until like salsa fresco. You know tomatoes and some sort of chili type of things onions. You can do that. But i like it just like you know. I like to taste the avocado. So only putting all that other stuff in there. We'll garlic little salt little lime. That's all you need by the way the largest serving of walk molly ever well. That was eight thousand. Three hundred and fifty one pounds and that was achieved in mexico for the avocado festival in twenty eighteen year. Wonder how much to charge for that charge. Like five dollars for a spoonful anyway. Let's take a look. At our historical events. Starting sixteen twenty. The pilgrims set sail on the mayflower from england. Yeah okay not exactly the best time to sail across the ocean especially back then right now. They were originally said to leave at the start of summer but there were delays in getting supplies so it didn't quite work out for them so there you go. They left on this day. They spent sixty six days at sea only to arrive in an unfamiliar place in the of winter because it was winter you know they can really set up camp properly and only fifty of the one hundred and two. Pilgrim's survived through that very difficult winter. Now here's the thing. French and dutch colonies were already fishing and gathering along the east coast of the. What would be later called the united states. By the time the mayflower arrived and the spanish will they had already settled. Florida like decades early. So when we learn so much in history about the pilgrims why is that well it could be because maybe the you know the brits want or so those who win gets tell the story but it also could be that william bradford one of the pilgrims aboard the mayflower kept a journal and he kept his journal for nearly three decades and those injuries within the journal contained much of the history of that time. Okay we had so many days to talk about so much information to go through just about guacamole really couldn't cover all of the events so let's tell you some of the other ones real quick here. One thousand nine hundred general motors corporation was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight richard. Nixon appeared on. Laugh in in nineteen eighty-four miami vice premiered and in one thousand nine hundred ninety four. There was a fire in the lighthouse. Smokey electrical fire not too much damage.

"The books that make the news really do so because of their pros or even how. Well they sell usually. It's because they stir controversy to kill a mockingbird by harper lee has been on countless reading lists and middle schools and high schools across the united states set in nineteen thirty six. It follows the story of a small town lawyer. Defending the innocence of a black man. Falsely accused of heinous crime and since its publication in nineteen sixty. It's found itself on another kind of list in some schools namely the banned book lists books are banned for a variety of reasons. It might be due to their subject matter or the author's personal beliefs regardless of the reason those titles not only become prohibited. They also become coveted because who doesn't want to read a book that's been deemed forbidden right. Well the puritans. Apparently thomas morton was a lawyer from devon england who had endured a fairly conservative upbringing is family were members of the landed gentry and enjoyed a comfortable lifestyle paid for by the people renting their lands yet. Despite his traditionalist childhood morton grew up more progressive over time during his years. Studying law in the fifteen ninety s. He fell in with the libertine crowd shunning the trends of the time by enjoying a life of fun and partying he set sail for massachusetts in sixteen. Twenty two where he was taken aback by the puritans and they're well puritanical. Beliefs has a result. He returned to england in sixteen twenty three to prepare for a more productive. Visit the following year when morton came back to massachusetts in sixteen twenty four. It was as part owner of the wallace and company. He founded a new settlements called marymount on land. Given to him by the native algonquin. 's and unlike the puritans who saw them as savages to be controlled or killed morten got along well with his indigenous neighbors even regarded them as more civilized and humanitarian than those of his countrymen. In plymouth who had shunned the more freethinking ways that morton held in fact. The colony didn't just dislike morton. They went to war with him. Puritan militias broke his pagan festivals and spread rumors about the debaucherous things going on in his town. In reality much of the backlash was due to how quickly marymount was growing many of their business. Ventures like further trading and farming. Were taking off and plymouth. Just couldn't compete. Morton was also trading guns with the algonquin 's who had already been marked as enemies by the puritans. Soon enough plymouth's commander a guy named miles. Standish used his armed militia to take control of mary. Mounts and then arrested morton and the blasphemous act. That had done him in. The marymount may day celebration may day had started as an ancient festival celebrated on the first of may with singing dancing and delicious food but the puritans of the plymouth colony only sought as a heathens paradise for his indiscretion morton was tried and exiled to the isle of shoals a small cluster of deserted islands between maine and new hampshire. But don't worry. Morton survived with the help of the native peoples who brought him food from the mainland when he eventually made it back to marymount the puritans had reduced it to a shadow of its former self this time. He was banished to england but once there he found a new way to get revenge that he craved he sued the colony and because england had already been at odds with the puritans king. Charles used morton's case as the perfect excuse to formerly revoke plymouth's charter. Next morton decided to parlay his success with the lawsuit into a brand new endeavor. He wrote a series of books about his experiences in massachusetts called new english canaan and the books took aim at the men behind the plymouth colony. Their real names were replaced with unflattering nicknames. Of course miles. Standish was referred to as captain shrimp while massachusetts bay. Governor john endicott was called captain little worth within the pages of morton's new english canaan he insulted their beliefs and policies and suggested the best approach to the new world was integrating the colonies with the native tribes. The way marymount had done unsurprisingly. Plymouth governor william bradford hated the books he went to great lengths to keep anyone else from reading them which is why new english canaan is widely considered to be the first book banned in america although the english government destroyed the first edition of the book soon after its publication. A few copies did survive. And so did morton's legacy his exploits were immortalized in. Works by nathaniel. Hawthorne stephen vincent bennett and philip roth. All those headaches and all that trouble only resulted in a legacy that has lived on for four hundred years and all they had to do to keep it from happening was to let the man do the one thing.

America Has a Drinking Problem

"Okay so when exactly did american start drinking. Was it at the start of america. Yeah literally so the reason sort of unbelievably or one of the reasons. I should say that. The mayflower landed at plymouth. Rock is because the ship was running low on beer people back then drink beer instead of water or they preferred it to water. Same and the sailors freaked out. And they thought that at the rate that they and pilgrims. We're drinking the beer. They won't have enough beer to get them back to england's so rather than sail on to the mouth of the hudson which had been the plan they pull the shore and kick the pilgrims off and that is why the pilgrims landed at plymouth rock. Of course the truth may have been a little more complicated than what was indicated in their diaries as they complained bitterly that winter about the beer and having been kicked off there were other things going on it was december. The weather was bad. The food was running low but the beer was a big part of the picture. People are dying in there. Like where's the booze yeah right. So william bradford who would go on to be the governor of the plymouth colony for thirty years that winter in his diary couldn't stop talking about the beer dearest diary. It has been another long and thirsty. Day here at the plymouth colony. How i long for the cool sweet feeling of a droplet of beer rolling down my throat part. That's not real. Almost half of the pilgrims were going to die that winter and the is what he was worried about now to be fair people back then. Were very leery of water. There had been problems with water. Purity in england and they thought that beer was safer nonetheless. They really enjoyed their liquor

Okay so when exactly did american start drinking. Was it at the start of america. Yeah literally so the reason sort of unbelievably or one of the reasons. I should say that. The mayflower landed at plymouth. Rock is because the ship was running low on beer people back then drink beer instead of water or they preferred it to water. Same and the sailors freaked out. And they thought that at the rate that they and pilgrims. We're drinking the beer. They won't have enough beer to get them back to england's so rather than sail on to the mouth of the hudson which had been the plan they pull the shore and kick the pilgrims off and that is why the pilgrims landed at plymouth rock. Of course the truth may have been a little more complicated than what was indicated in their diaries as they complained bitterly that winter about the beer and having been kicked off there were other things going on it was december. The weather was bad. The food was running low but the beer was a big part of the picture. People are dying in there. Like where's the booze yeah right. So william bradford who would go on to be the governor of the plymouth colony for thirty years that winter.

"And carriages among some of the passengers who said we are no longer bound together. We can go off and do what we want. And it was decided that before anyone set foot ashore the men representing either themselves or the entirety of their households would agree to a covenant that held them together and allowed them to build institutions. In the moment. I do not think they understood. How impactful the document would be but over time as they began to see what they were doing creating different institutions in legal practices later on in life. William bradford when he returns to telling the story of plymouth in his chronicle of plymouth plantation as he starts volume to he said. I need to back up in volume. What he'd already gotten them to plymouth but when he picks up the the pen years later he says. I need to tell you about this thing that we did. And he says it was a more sure and certain form of government than a patent because it was self government all right so briefly. And then i want to talk about how. The museum tells the story a little bit briefly. Is it accurate to say that the people on the ship were seeking religious freedom or is it more complicated than that Many of those that were aboard the ship were seeking freedoms to worship as they wanted. They were trying to get away from the others. They didn't yet have that larger concept of freedom of religion as we have it. Now all right so i'm going to play some sound for you now because i wanna talk about how the museum presents this story and brings it alive for people. We spoke to one of your colleagues mauka benjamin. She director prefer yep for interpretation and training. At the museum she spent a number of years portraying pilgrims and she talked about visiting. What was then plymouth plantation. When she was six. I still remember walking into a pilgrim house and feeling a little uncomfortable because it is a really weird experience the first time you go and you know you feel like you're walking into someone's house but this lady asked me to help her dry her dishes now. Would i ever volunteer to help like dry dishes at whole no but doing it. In a pilgrim house made it super cool. And i went back later in that day. Found the same woman and she gave me another job..

This was in the twenties. And according to william rapper you is book was made into movie later on so was A bunch of his others the clansman and very famous writer. Big time and but he and i were. We're good friends. And so i hit him order me all his back books which all of them were still in free except for one call mud on the stars and so when i read that thank you said. That's daily put that add up there and so the first year he ran at a idea was. I believe five hundred. Seventy seven people from new york came to alabama and most of them were jewish because they had a limit on how many jewish you could go to.

"William Federer, author of many, many books and a dear friend of this program Bill. The book we're talking about now is called Socialism. The real history from Plato to the present. You've written many books. I want people to go to American minute dot com. Um, So you're giving us this history and I love it. Tell us more another would you just described Plato and how he explains what happens when you drift from democracy to? It's really an oligarchy, philosopher King top down rule. So you're effectively saying that is what socialism is. Right, So it's a structured society Now, if we skip forward 2000 years from 3 80 bc to around 15 16 80 You have Sir Thomas more, and he writes a book called Island of Utopia, and He's modeling it after Plato's Atlantis. And so this is only 20 years after Columbus discovered America it's a fictitious island off the coast of South America. The word utopia means nowhere. And it's written as a Greek dialogue with a traveler who's named high flow dais, which means peddler of nonsense. So here we have the island of Utopia told by the peddler of Nonsense, and it is a structured society with the ruling class and a commoner class and the commoners own no property. They have no privacy. It's free health care. Three identical clothing, free food and communal monastic style dining halls. Everyone know where is that, you know, identical clothes of everyone lives in three story houses that are identical with no locks on any doors. There's no privacy. There's no ale houses or coffee houses. The government tracks everyone. Everywhere you go and the government decides who gets to have Children and then take the Children away from the family and indoctrinates them with noble lies. And so this is utopia. This is this perfectly structured society. Not not perfectly structured for the people in the lower classes. Obviously, yes, definitely s O a century later. You have Sir Francis Bacon, and he writes the new Atlantis. So he's directly calling it a new Atlantis, referring to Plato's Atlantis and this new Atlantis is an island in the Pacific. Again Structured with the ruling class and commoners little more scientific careers Because the scientific revolution someone wrote a satire on it. Johnson, Swiss Gulliver's travels. No, wait is over. Francis. Did you say Francis Bacon? Yeah. I always get Francis Bacon confused with Roger Bacon. Roger Bacon is about 200 years before that, I guess. Right, Um Francis Bacon writes a book and what is it called again? It's called the new Atlantis, Okay, because I'm not familiar with that. But you're telling me that Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels is a take off on that. Right. It's a satire. So here's a guy washed up on an island and it's highly structured. And there's the ruling class that rules with this minutia ridiculousness and then the commoners that just have to do their job all their life. And why is this important? The pilgrims? So the pilgrims were originally a company colony with bylaws written by investors that have looked back to Plato's Sir Thomas Port, Sir Francis Bacon and the Pilgrim Bylaws say this All goods gotten by trucking traffic trading fishing shall go into the common stock and everyone's livelihood shall come out of the common stock. And so they were attempting. Todos this County. There's some type of thing, and William Bradford, the governor of the Pilgrim says it failed, He says This proves the emptiness of the theory of Plato applauded recently by scholars in Europe. Here's the governor. The pilgrims knowing that they were attempting to live out, Plato said. The emptiness of the theory of Plato, he says that the taking away of private property and owning in a community would somehow make men happy as if they were wiser than God. He says the young man objected to doing twice as much work as the old guy, but got paid the same. The old guy considered it a dishonor to be classed in labor with the young guy, And he says the women objected to having to wash other men's clothes. Now now, Bill just to be clear. This really happened. We did we rarely hear about this, but the pilgrims, originally this the Massachusetts Bay Colony or in Plymouth This was their Massachusetts Bay Plymouth colony. Well, but so you're you're saying that they really tried this, and Bradford realized it's not working. How long did they try it for? Before they realized we've got to do something else. Well, William Bradford said over two years and he said that they nearly starved to death, and so we, he said. We had to come up with a way to we wouldn't have to suffer want like another winter of starvation. So after much discussion, it was decided that every man should plant corn for his own household. Wow, What a novel idea. It's almost funny. Isn't it funny like it's it's so basic. And yet they really experienced this. This is not some theory. They lived out a socialist type. Government society, and they said this isn't working. What if we let everyone take some care of himself and suddenly you get a type of capitalism? Yeah, And so they said, so every family was assigned a parcel of land. This made all hands more industrious. The women now went willingly into the field and took their little ones with them to plant corn, while before they would allege weakness and to have forced them would have been considered great oppression. Right is this Pilgrim switched from a Communistic socialist form of government to what's called a covenant form of government where you're taking care of your neighbor? Not because the bylaws say so. But because you're doing it as unto God. It's just as I say to me, it's almost funny because they try it. They see it doesn't work. And then they change it. Um, most people when they're talking about the history of socialism, they wouldn't necessarily go back to plate or or even to the pilgrims. And you know most of us if even if we learned that we forgot that the pilgrims tried this for two years, why did the pilgrims try this? It's kind of a funny thing that they thought Uh, you know, we're going to invent a new way of community and they really thought this might be it. What will be investors are the ones that came up with the model hands. They were looking back to Plato's Sir Thomas Moore, Sir Francis Bacon. People say Well, isn't the church Socialists didn't the early church on everything in common? Two big differences Voluntary versus involuntary and church versus government, So the early believers voluntarily sold their land and late the money at the feet of who the apostles for the church to distribute. They weren't forced to sell their land and put it at the feet of a pilot for the Roman government to distribute. Your pilot. Here's a little more money for you know on so we see the Bible is filled full of People owning private property. You wonder the promised land. God divides up the property amongst the 12 tribes and all the families. Now, if you own property, you can accumulate stuff. That's called being blessed. Karl Marx called it being a capitalist. Right. So Karl Marx said Communism could be summed up in one sentence, abolition of private property, and Lenin said socialism is a transition face to communism. And then if you own stuff you could be moved a pawn in your heart to give some of it away that is called charity. Right, So it's a little nights when it's when it's voluntary. As you say It's completely different cause if you look at human nature, uh it really is entirely different. If if a Communist government forces me, um, t to do anything, I will naturally feel oppressed. I might even do the same thing. If I do it freely. I won't feel oppressed. S so that's kind of at the heart of this. Right. If you think of it, I mean, here's God. He made everything. He exists Fraternity and everything will base him and it follows laws. Laws of planetary motion laws of gravity was the physical laws of science, and it's almost like he said, You know, been there done that I could make things that obeyed me at some time and eternity past. God said, You know, I would really like someone in my image that could love me. And so he creates this thing we call reality and you hide himself behind creation Because if you ever revealed himself he is so totally awesome every molecule in our being with false latte in front of them, and he would know if we loved him because he's so totally awesome or because the voluntary free will loving choice..

The Years (plural) Without A Christmas

"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you
