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.

    Something good finally came of that damned war.

    We will see.

    This could inflame the terrorists again and cause many more of the last Christians in that country to be killed.

    But they did not call it Christmas or make it a Christian only holiday. Its just a day of rest for now. At the most it can only be called a day to honor the profit Jesus.

  • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When it comes to the Iraq War and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, we have nothing to apologize for. The Iraq war was just, right, and a success. It was done for moral reasons on our part, and accomplished its goals spectacularly.

    Sadly, when it comes to this conflict, too many Americans have allowed themselves to buy into the lies of the left. Just because these propagandists claim the war was evil does not make it so. They were wrong about practically everything they said about the war, before, during, and after. There is no reason to even listen to them.

    Which interestingly is a good description as well of their claims about Obamacare, before, during, and after. Revealing, ain’t it?

    One of the biggest lies about the Iraq war was that it has lasted 10 years. It was one of the shortest most successful wars in history and lasted barely two weeks. The sailors hung the “mission accomplished banner precisely because the MISSION WAS ACCOMPLISHED! What was bungled from the very beginning was the Iraq OCCUPATION. Mainly because the “previous occupant” tried to allay fears that the US was going to be occupying a muslim country and refused to call it what it was
