GIVING THANKS-- FOR PRIVATE PROPERTY

GIVING THANKS-- FOR PRIVATE PROPERTY: James S. Robbins tells the story of the Pilgrim's privatization of 1623.

Fun fact: Robbins may be a closet libertarian! He was once a contributing editor to Liberty; during the (first) Gulf War, he was a stalwart hawk alongside isolationists (sorry, "non-interventionists") like R.W. Bradford and Sheldon Richman. If you think about it, his little parable-- of the Pilgrims' communalism, born of religion, and its failure-- has an almost Randian anti-religious subtext that is very un-National Review.
