36. It was not just Cotton Mather or the New England Elites
it was pervasive to the Colonies... not a colony, the colonies.

And yes it was the aristocracy, ALL OF THEM, who went there... and their descendants still believe this... and so do their political followers, who drink the kool aid.

These are long distant echoes, patters if you will...

American Historians tend to mostly stay away from this study of patterns. I mean after all we are outside of history, and patterns are only for those others (French Academy chiefly) who see them in history. But believe you me, there are echoes, distant echoes. Hell some of them go back to the medieval period, but most of the echoes in the United States go back to 16th century colonization which went hand in hand with the end of the Enclosure movement in the UK and the rise of a powerful landed elite.

Hell was thinking of just doing the just the facts ma'am school of history for this little history of labor, but I now have come to realize that patterns, echoes, are critical to the story.
