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.

    Poor guy just lost hos job.

    But like the libs keep telling the conservatives. ‘If you really want that job you’ll just suck it up and work through it. Then you don’t have to deal with it again.’

    The problem is that is a lie. You will have to deal with it again. And more than likely on a yearly basis as a refresher.(you might forget your a racist and need reminding.)

    What really ticks me off about his letter is the fact that the employees are using state paid for equipment and time to campaign for their chosen candidate.
    If the conservative members of the staff did that they would be in an uproar and calling for the cons ouster from the university for using public money for political campaigns.

    Democrats have made a concerted effort to channel funding and human resources into subverting the educational system over the past 50+ years. We all read these stories and think how crazy the current state of affairs is but what to do about it?

    Conservatives and Libertarians need to encourage people of like mind to get into the educational system and provide them with the funding and support systems to see that they make it. Change wont happen over night. It will take a concerted effort over decades in order to dislodge the cultural marxists from the educational system.

    Sorry, Wodun. We’re too far down the pike for this to work with public, and many private, schools. I had been working at a local private museum of science and industry for 4+ years, including a bit of focus on my major area of interest, spaceflight. Jobs opened up for science explainers.

    As early as 1984 I was being turned down for jobs that interacted with kids, with excuses that danced around my political views, …such as being for the Strategic Defense Initiative, while making it clear they were unacceptable in someone influencing children. Fortunately there was a management change, to people who did not know my views, and I got one of those jobs for the next 3 years anyway.

    Political filters in hiring have been up for along time. The way to get past that is to start new schools, including all the hard work in raising money for them. The MOOCs and other resources will help a lot. In particular, the trend for certification by testing groups
    *outside* the school attended is growing swiftly. Those who can bring that into the the pre-college education markets, with testing questions and answers *not* biased towards the supremacy of the State, may have more effect for the effort than the huge effort of starting new schools.
