Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

Ann Coulter has cancelled her speech at UC-Berkeley

The fascists win: Ann Coulter has cancelled her speech at UC-Berkeley, scheduled for April 27.

She cites as her reason for cancelling as the fact that the two groups that had sponsored her lecture had both cancelled that sponsorship out of fear of violence and the refusal of the university and the local government to provide protection. Their lawsuits against the university however will go on.

Regardless, this is now what urban California has become, a fascist state where expressing conservative views leaves you vulnerable to violence, with the local authorities working with the violent brown-shirted thugs to help them squelch freedom.

    If WWII is any indicator, the only way to beat BST (BrownShirtedThugs) is by being a lot tougher, and way better organized.

    I am beginning to think that Eisenhower mistook a temporary German setback in 1945 as a total allied victory.

    Anyway, with a little luck they will still burn down the rest of the place.

    Orion314,
    Indeed, the nazis could win over the Stalin-Soviet sponsored communists, who even put sharp shooters on the roof tops during opposition demonstrations in Weimar Germany, because they were even tougher.

    That has to be one of the shortest articles Reuters ever produced. It is in the Humanitarian section and tagged War and Conflict. It doesn’t look like Reuters is too sympathetic to people who are being attacked by their activist compatriots.

    quasi fact-based account–Jude Law as Vassili, a marksman from the Urals, Vs. master German sniper, Major Koenig (Ed Harris) sent by the Nazi’s to Stalingrad 1942-43 to find and kill him. (also features Bob Hoskins as Nikita Krushchev and Ron Perlman as an aging Russian sniper.)
