Shortly after the Pilgrims arrived, they were befriended by Squanto. Squanto was an American Indian of the Patuxet tribe . (“American Indian” was the term used for 400 years before leftists invented the “Native American” to delegitimize everyone else born in America). Squanto miraculously survived disease and famine that wiped out most of his tribe several years before. He taught the Pilgrims how to grow corn and other American crops, and where to find fish. The Pilgrims also used fertile fields that had previously been cleared and fertilized with fishheads by Squanto's tribe.
However, in spite of Squanto’s help, the Pilgrims struggled. They barely produced enough food to feed themselves during their first two years in America. That is because they ran their settlement as a socialist commune. There was no privately owned land. Everyone worked commonly owned fields together. Everything produced was put into a common storehouse, and given out based on need. This caused enormous problems.
William Bradford, the colony’s governor, explained them in his journal.
“Young men resented working for the benefit of other men’s wives and children without compensation. Healthy men who worked thought it unjust that they received no more food than weak men who could not. Wives resented doing household chores for other men, considering it a kind of slavery.”
