It’s the time of year when postmodernists revise our understanding of history to paint a world and nation so thoroughly corrupted from its inception that propriety demands its eradication. They paint a world so depraved that our treasured moments of gratitude and family gathering must be replaced with self-loathing and unending repentance to Godless woke ideologies. The postmodernists intentionally impart modern context to historical events so that they might destroy the fabric of our nation. A proper perspective paints a more hopeful picture. A picture where a people desperate for religious freedom sought refuge in a distant and inhospitable land and found allies amongst people unlike themselves.

A proper survey of the world in the fifteenth thru seventeenth centuries provides a glimpse of a world in transition. At the time, the Catholic Church dominated much of the Western world, save for the Anglican territories. Religious influence was tantamount to political power. Monarchs were chosen by God, and material wealth was considered a reflection of the blessings of the Creator. It was this mindset that spawned the practice of selling indulgences and drove men to traverse the globe in search of the favor of monarchs and God. It was this practice that ultimately ended in the repeated failures of explorers to put down settlements in North America. It was the radically different approach employed by the pilgrims of Plymouth colony that we, in part, owe our existence to today.
