One of the most famous voyages in early American colonial history, and the Mayflower Compact is cited as influential in the establishment of democracy and self-government in British North America. To the civilized humanity, in 1620, laid on New England shores the foundations of that civil and religious freedom upon which has been built a refuge for the oppressed of every land, the story of the Pilgrim "Exodus" has an ever-increasing value and zest. Every detail and circumstance which relates to their preparations; the ships; personnel of the Merchant Adventurers associated with them, and to that of the colonists themselves; to what befell them; to their final embarkation on their lone ship,—the immortal MAY-FLOWER; and to the voyage itself and to its issues, is vested to-day with, a supreme interest.< Less

The study regards the way in which entheogens, or psychointegrators, have been used by every culture of the world, and stem tens of thousands or more years into humanity's collective past. With a myriad of professional sources and nascent ideas for hierarchical organization and facilitation beyond necessary decriminalization, I defend the concept that ethnic groups which comprise modern Americans should be able to utilize entheogens as they were used for therapies and religious worship by their ancestors (and in some cases no more than a few to a hundred years ago, in the cases of immigration and of US government stance changes, respectively).< Less
