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.

CNN Lists Job Opening For Head Fiction Writer

Link here. Key quote:

The network is reportedly looking for a seasoned author of thrilling fiction novels to fabricate news stories for its online and televised news coverage.

“Must have a penchant for weaving complex narratives and fabricating intricate storylines out of thin air for the sake of ratings. Experience in Cold War-era spy novels preferred, in the style of Tom Clancy, etc.,” the listing states. “Author will be responsible for making stuff up out of the blue to form the basis of 5-6 news stories per day. Full salary & benefits.”

The listing also states that “no journalism background is required.”

It seems to me that this listing is the most honest I’ve ever seen. Though I’m not sure what difference it makes whether any applicants have a modern “journalism background” or not. Considering what they teach students about journalism in today’s modern colleges, there really isn’t much difference between journalism and fiction anyway.

    One assumes this is an Onion type thing as CNN itself would never be that self-aware or honest.

  • Chris L: The Babylon Bee is definitely a satirical site.

    Then again, I am not surprised that you were unsure whether this was a real CNN job offer, considering the network does this kind of news reporting: CNN Uses Sesame Street’s Elmo to Attack Trump’s Travel Ban

    “The Babylon Bee is Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire.”

    The Left is being seen for what it is by the mass of the American public. This entire narrative put forward by them all, politicos, media, Globalists, U.N. adherents etc. is all based in lies and that is as it must be. How do they attempt to win? They must “rig”, through unspoken collusion, the game in some manner (Read: Lie). Because if they were to honestly put forward their thinking on the subject of governance and freedom for the people they would never ever see power in government again.

    This CNN employment ad is a joke, but its not really a joke, it might as well be true.
