more twisting fact to fit a self serving myth. The early Europeans that settled New England and to an extent Virginia struggled the same way suburban Americans would if they attempted to settle in the tropics with what they could get at Walmart. Poorly adapted and poorly trained to the task at hand. Everyman for himself, rugged individualism, capitalism would prove fatal until a society was stable as Jamestown almost did until the 'settlers' quit pissing off the natives searching for gold and banded together to plant crops. They almost died out again as the capitalist lure almost collapsed the fragile Virginia colony when the settlers went hog wild into the tobacco business and once again neglected to raise food crops.
Nice try though
