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.

Berkeley professors demand silencing of dissent

Fascists: Merely because they disagree with Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, a group of more than 100 University of California-Berkeley professors have signed a letter demanding that he be banned from their campus so that he will be prevented from speaking there during a scheduled lecture on February 1.

More significantly, these so-called intellectual educators demonstrate that they have never once read or listened to a single word Yiannopoulos has written or said by their claim that he supports “white supremacy, transphobia, and misogyny”. My god, the guy is as openly homosexual as can be imagined. More importantly, his primary advocacy is for freedom and human rights. I guess these are ideas that modern academics can no longer support. Instead, they like to grind their boots into the faces of those they oppose.

    Not a super-huge fan of Milo, but I do find him interesting & relatively entertaining.
    (I’m almost to the point of preferring Milo over Beck right now, although I’m anything but alt-right.)
    Milo likes to “own the language, render it harmless, and turn it back on the left.”

    It’s not surprising however, (sadly, unfortunately) the Berzerkeley Radicals with Tenure, would attack a British gay guy who likes to date (very) black men.
    -His last Tour was called “The Dangerous Faggot tour.” And he was very proud of it.

    What is it really that these highly educated professors fear?

    Are they sooo confident in their own view of how the world works that they have absolutely no tolerance at all for anything other than their own point of view?

    Is it because they fear and are unable to competently refute what it is that they believe that they disagree with? Isn’t fear usually the cause for such intolerance and not confidence in ones position?
