Agreements Outlined In The Mayflower Compact
The pact they signed was an event of the utmost importance. It was the foundation of freedom based on law and order, and that tradition has been perpetuated. They devised a form of government that has been called the first true constitution of modern times. It was democratic to recognize freedom according to law and order and to give everyone the right to participate in government while promising to obey the laws. But what was really wonderful was that they had the strength and strength of character to stick to it and live from that day on. Some governments are better than others. But any form of government is better than anarchy, and any attempt to destroy government is an attempt to destroy civilization.  Members of the separatist community, as well as a number of unknown individuals, apparently understood that they would not survive if they did not all work together for the common good. The pact provided that the undersigned would accept a democratic form of government for the colony, in which officials were to be elected and laws passed in the interest of all. Any male member of the colony over the age of 21 would be able to vote for these officials and laws, have the right to change laws or remove authorities, and propose information laws on the basis of a referendum; The signing of the pact approved these provisions and the majority of those present did so. After the colony was founded at Plymouth, and the Wampanoag Confederacy Indians established friendly relations, the pact served as a model for the peace treaty between the settlers and Chief Ousamequin wampanoag (better known by his title Massasoit, .c.
1581-1661 AD.C.), which established a close and mutually beneficial relationship between the newcomers and the Native Americans until Massasoit`s death and the influx of other Ko les Massachusetts Bay Colony lonistes, who increasingly needed indigenous lands.
