Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


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.


All editions available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors.

    This sounds a lot like some Homeowners Associations where fascist wannabes have nothing better to do than ensure their neighbors toe the line. But this could be even worse because the fascists have the power of city government and can enforce their views on acceptability with a police force. Since most police departments routinely carry sidearms, enforcement of bylaws by them implies the ability to use the threat of deadly force…

    Did you know codes, statutes and acts are NOT laws. The general misconception is any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. constitution IS the SUPREME law of the land, and any statutes, code or act, to be valid, must be in agreement with the Constitution. It is impossible for a law which violates the Constitution to be valid. “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Maybury vs. Madison (1803). I suggest the plaintiff remind the Nazi-city of Bradenton what the law really is and perhaps file a lawsuit for harassment.

    I also strongly suggest everyone start reading and learning the founding documents of this nation. Knowledge is power!
