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.

Another American expresses his anger

The rage builds: “So I’d like to ask the Fed, is it that you just hate the working class here in America and thus like to torment them or are you truly that stuck up your own asses that you just cannot see the light?”

Read it all. I don’t agree with his perspective entirely, but I do agree that the elite of this country are increasingly ignoring the wishes of the general public, for their own gain and to the detriment of everyone else. If they don’t stop this behavior soon, they are going to find this rage coming back to bite them, and that bite is going to hurt everyone very badly.

    Since my late teens in the late seventies, I have always thought that the elites did what they did out of hatred towards America and Americans out of disdain and hatred toward us as opposed to outright greed, I do not know why I feel this way, but it is like you are on the road in a nice car and you live too nice a living for a wage earner and you have no justification for living what would be a luxurious life in any third world nation, it seems to me that the uber wealthy do not see much of a differential to the kind of life they live versus the kind of life the average worker lives compared to the amount of investment in time and responsibility that the wealthy have. Reading a book like Atlas Shrugged, the people that make things happen had families that thought a lot differently, politically the company owner was a conservative and his family members were very liberal because they never earned a cent and had to justify their lives based on touchy feely things that had no basis in reality, these are the people that came up with the Rockefeller foundation or the Ford foundation, their namesakes are rolling in their graves.
