Excess and regret

11/26/2016

 
Thanksgiving. This uniquely American celebration of bounty – or maybe excess..definitely regret. Even my yoga pants are feeling a little tight. Oy. 

That one day a year we show gratitude for our blessings by being kind of lazy brats: eating, shopping, watching other people do physical activities. And some of us do it to the point that we’re really close to ticking the boxes on at least half of the mortal sins. 

Sounds bad. But is it? Oh, I mean, I KNOW we shouldn’t overeat, overspend and be lazy. Because, really, isn’t that the total opposite of those Pilgrims who first set stakes in the swampy backwash of Cape Cod?

Hmm.. maybe not entirely. We are brought up with the morality lessons we hear of two disparate groups making peace after a hard year and putting all their goods into a collectivist basket and sharing with each other.

But it wasn’t until the collectivist experiment was discontinued, breaking the lazy from their complacency, and the disgruntled from their irritation with the lazy, that the farm bounty prevailed. (See this fascinating post from Fee.org about Thanksgiving being about the triumph of capitalism.)  And peace probably wasn’t what the Pequots were thinking about as they were being burned alive 15 years or so later at Mystic.

So what is the truth about our American history? And how does the American experiment fit in and compare to WORLD history? Wouldn’t it be nice to have an excess of truth and knowledge for a change? The answer is YES, by the way, and here’s how you can get TONS of it:
