Many settlers chose to form a government. At the same time, the Mayflower Pact was based on a majority model (although the signatories were not in the majority) and on the loyalty of the settlers to the king. It was essentially a social contract in which the settlers agreed to respect the rules and rules of the survival pact. Thus, the settlers sincerely believed that they had the right to govern themselves by being separated from Britain by an ocean and creating an entirely new society. In the form of Plymouth`s autonomy, the colony was ruled by a local governor and legislature, elected by a local oligarchy; The governor was appointed by the colonial power and not by the Crown of England. When the first pilgrims went to the New World, a strange turn of fate created a spirit of autonomy. These Mayflower pilgrims were on their way to Virginia in 1620, but they got lost and ended up in Plymouth, Massachusetts today. Since Plymouth was not within the boundaries of the Virginia colony, the pilgrims did not have an official charter to govern them. So they designed the “Mayflower Compact” which basically explained that they were going to govern themselves. Although Massachusetts eventually became a royal colony, the Plymouth Pilgrims set a powerful precedent for their own rules, which were later reflected in the town halls held in colonial New England. not satisfied with an established exclusion of foreign manufactures, our own goods started more expensive for consumers there, by heavy obligations, revived again; Across the continent, suits were closed to end trade with Britain until these tariffs were abolished. All were cancelled accordingly, but un, duty on tea. This has been reserved (professing) as a permanent claim and exercise of the right assumed by Parliament to delegate such obligations.
In an autonomous colony like Plymouth, elected leaders make the most decisions without referring to the imperial power that nominally controls the colony. Second, the legislature does not have the right to have absolute and arbitrary power over the lives and wealth of individuals; Similarly, mortals can take a prerogative not only for men, but also for angels and thus be reserved for the exercise of worldliness. The idea of self-administration was promoted by the Glorious Revolution and the Bill of Rights of 1689, which established that the British Parliament – not the king – had ultimate authority in government. In the 1730s, Parliament passed laws governing their colonies in America. The Sugar Act introduced a tax of six pence per gallon of imported sugar or molasses in the colonies, and until 1750 Parliament had begun to ban, restrict or tax several other products. This caused many problems among the settlers, although their tax burden was quite low compared to most subjects of the European monarchies during the same period. Slowly, as the interference of the crown increased, the settlers felt increasingly angry at British control of the colonies. The pilgrims wanted to quell the rebellion before it took hold.
Finally, the creation of a New World colony without dissent in the ranks would be quite difficult. The pilgrims knew that they needed as many productive and law-adle souls as possible to succeed in the colony.
