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.

California moves to criminalize journalism

Fascists: Democrats in the California legislature are pushing a bill that would criminalize undercover videos of healthcare providers like Planned Parenthood.

Hey, who says we need a first amendment or a Bill of Rights? We instead have elected Democrats to protect us, including the guy who introduced this bill and who has received $13,500 in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood. Why should we worry?

    In many ways they are trying to criminalize transparency. Almost every aspect of our lives is visible and open to scrutiny but the opposite is true with government agencies and their allies.

    One need only look at the actions of the Obama regime and it’s use of the IRS to intimidate his enemies (who are loyal and patriotic citizens). Everything about us is transparent, yet everything about these agencies is closed and opaque. The worse part is their claim that’s for our protection.

    It’s not us they are protecting but rather their nefarious actions which they must keep hidden.

    Like everything that Obama and his fellow travelers endeavor to do their strategy is to say one thing representing a particular position and then blatantly do the exact opposite and then dare those not in power to challenge them when they hold all of the power.

    This is classic Marxist / Leftist speak, just like redefining terms and words used for the last 300 years in law and in society.

    Deception with the end goal being control and the result? As always, ABUSE OF POWER UNDER THE BANNER OF PROMOTING “FAIRNESS” AND” SOCIAL JUSTICE”.
