Hey Ms. Rand, What Are You Thankful For?

John Stossel's lesson from Thanksgiving? Socialism is bad. He argues that without a free market economy, the Pilgrims would not have had a Thanksgiving in 1623. Ok. Maybe. But I bet you they had a doctor who would come to even the poorest among them, without needing the permission of the Plymouth HMO. And I bet that the Pilgrims tried their damndest to make sure that no one starved. In other words, I bet the Pilgrims understood the advantages and limitations of free markets.
