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.

China launches Tianzhou freighter to space station

The new colonial movement: China today successfully used its Long March 7 rocket to launch a new Tianzhou unmanned cargo freighter to its Tiangong space station.

The cargo is for the station’s next crew, scheduled to launch in June for a six month mission, during which two new large modules will be added to the station.

The launch took place at China’s sea coast Wenchang spaceport, so its expendable lower stages all fell harmlessly in the ocean.

The leaders in the 2022 launch race:

18 SpaceX
15 China
6 Russia
3 Rocket Lab
2 ULA

U.S. private enterprise still leads China 26 to 15 in the national rankings, as well as the entire world combined 26 to 24.

    ‘Stop

    What’s that sound?

    Paradigm shift

    Is all around.

    Take a moment to reflect on the reality of private enterprise doing the bulk of the work ex terra. But isn’t that what we want? Isn’t that that point of free enterprise and the regulatory environment to facilitate it?

    Sure, if you’re an average Josephine, But the last decade has very much illustrated the extent to which We The People are subject to those who are power-entrenched: the Deep State.

    What to do? Refuse around the edges, to start. Everyone has engagements where some will try to impose will, but even dealing with Officialdom, there is room for negotiation.

    The Indians threw the superpower of the day out of their country. For Americans, who’ve done that already, tamping down Liberal hysteria should not be a problem. But, you can’t be ‘nice’ about it. Not offensive, but not yielding, either.
