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.

NY mayor forbids protests

The Democratic and fascist mayor of New York City, Bill De Blasio, has now declared the city a first amendment-free zone, where protests will no longer be allowed.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea stated outright this week that people are not permitted to gather for protests in public due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The city leaders pointed to the need to maintain social distancing in order to prevent greater spread of COVID-19, stating that this takes precedence over people’s rights to exercise their First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly.

Can I point out once again the big lie being spread by these fascist thugs? The original reason we were told to “social distance” was merely a very temporary measure to slow the spread of the Wuhan flu so that the healthcare system would not be overwhelmed. We’ve achieved that, handily, with much room to spare (while bankrupting ourselves in the process).

Now they are instead claiming its to “prevent the greater spread of COVID-19”. That is a lie. Social distancing is not going to stop the disease from spreading. It never will.

De Blasio’s goal is not your safety. His goal is power, more for him and less for you. You have been warned.

    I wonder what would happen if there was a spontaneous protest where they got together in Tiananmen Square NY and built a mock Statue of Liberty?

    Social distancing is not going to stop the disease from spreading. It never will.
    So all the countries that have reduced the spread, gotten case numbers down to single figures a day and will soon eliminate the virus? Did they achieve that through lockdowns – which you’ve said don’t work, or through social distancing – which you now say doesn’t work?

  • Max

    Andrew_W;
    There are more viruses inside your body than there are stars in the sky. Viruses literally inhabit and infect every living organism on the planet!
    Plants, animals, birds, reptiles, funguses, bacteria, etc.
    To think you can eliminate a disease by hiding from it is wishful thinking. One only needs to look at the history of pandemics and plagues to know that when one is finished, another one is right behind. If we do not adapt, we go extinct.
    As Europeans gave new diseases to the New World, South America gave Europe syphilis (and tobacco).
    Our best hope is finding cures and adapting, not hiding and wishing. We can’t all live life as “The boy in the bubble”.
    It is the new model of evolution. As we evolve, the viruses evolve with us. Forcing our genome to adapt, strengthening the species.
    (There are new pathogen created in labs for which there is no defense. One of them, if it got out, would sterilize the planet of all life)

    It has always been this way and will continue to be this way. Unfortunately it is also human nature to take advantage of people’s fears for social or political gain forcing a different type of change that viruses did not intend. Lockdown of “unaffected people” and social distancing are “means” to a different “end” which will accelerate to unrest, break down of society, martial law, mass starvation, cremation ovens or killing Fields.
    We know this because it’s happened a dozen times just in the last century. We are on the doorstep of the new dark age.

    DiBlasio is telling New Yorkers to shut up and sit down. Yeah, that’ll work! Can’t wait!!

  • ROBERT NABORNEY

    This illustrates the TOTAL FAILURE of American education, didn’t anybody read “The Masque of the Red Death” in junior high school…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS1_hohIl4w….You can fun, but you can’t hide

  • pzatchok

    Have they shut down public transport?

    If not their excuse of social distancing is a sham.

    They didn’t clean the subways until last week. And they wonder why they have a huge infection rate.

    Ray Van Dune: in that they voted for him, it probably will work.

    From Phill O’s link;
    “isolation and quarantine also are “police power” functions, derived from the right of the state to take action affecting individuals for the benefit of society.”

    The army of tracers will be given police powers without training or oath to violate your constitutional rights because the “right” of the state rules supreme. (do you feel that boot coming down on your face?)
    Did Hitler claim such powers for the fatherland when he rounded up Catholics, gypsies, and Jews? He meant well, for the benefit of society after all… We were just following orders…

    This new tracer government agency really bothers me. I had an american born aunt that spent time in a Japanese internment camp as a child during World War II. Constitutional rights suspended for the good of all…
    I just heard on the news that the new tracer program will start here in Utah next week. Testing stations have been set up throughout the Wasatch front to voluntarily identify yourself. (The rumor is that no one is showing up but the media)
    We will learn next week if the testing is no longer voluntary. It might be a condition of employment, or verification before being allowed to enter a grocery store or business.
    https://www.sltrib.com/news/2020/04/22/utah-launches-an-app/

    For right now, those infected will be in quarantine or forcibly quarantined.
    Then what?
    False positives will be quarantine, as well as anyone who comes in contact with an infected or suspected infected person. Next, as cold season fades away, the war will continue looking for new victims to prosecute. (I hope you are not Chinese or suspected of being Asian dissent…)
    The hotline is open if you see someone cough or sneeze…

    I spent the morning looking for information on what I do not know about viruses, here are my results;

    Northern Arizona University reconstructs bio weapon, modified anthrax, accidentally released in 1979 in Russia killing 66 people. Caused by improper changing of the bio filters.
    https://www.sciencealert.com/biologists-have-decoded-a-secret-russian-bioweapon-decades-after-it-escaped-the-lab

    Poor procedures led to the shutting down of American labs in 2014 which led the funding of Wuhan labs in China.
    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/poor-oversight-catches-up-with-high-security-infectious-agent-and-disease-labs/

    A list of violations observed at FREDERICK, Md. — In 2019, an Army laboratory at Fort Detrick that studies deadly infectious material like Ebola and smallpox was shut down for a period of time after a CDC inspection, with many projects being temporarily halted.
    https://wjla.com/news/local/cdc-shut-down-army-germ-lab-health-concerns

    Multiple mistakes reported in 2015. Missed labeled live viruses, escaped infected rodents, experimented on cattle sold for human consumption. Americas wet market?
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/05/28/biolabs-pathogens-location-incidents/26587505/

    Another good article 2019 before the wu-flu started. “Between 2005 and 2012, the agency (CDC) got 1,059 release reports — an average of an incident every few days.”

    Another bullet dodged in September 2019… Or did we?

    That’s probably enough examples of the human race being on the edge of extinction.
    We used to sleep outside in the summer in Utah, until the release of modified mosquitoes which somehow got infected with the west Nile virus.
    There is documented experimentation of infectious material been sprayed on cities to track the spread factors.
    Documented experimentation with American ticks which carry Lyme disease (often diagnosed as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, juvenile arthritis etc.) now found throughout the world.
    And now we are creating new problems to worry about. Added jeans to create an unknown organism, not modified but brand new.

    I found it odd in my search of genetically modified organisms that this would pop up.
    Bill Gates, Branson, teaming up with numerous meat producers like Tyson, to grow artificial meat for mass production by 2021.
    https://agfundernews.com/memphis-meats-raises-17m-series-cargill-gates-branson-musk.html
    Is the timing coincidence? The product is too expensive to compete with real meat. Unless the price goes up…

    What could possibly happen?
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_organism
    Detailed extensive information that will make your head spin. I found the experimentation on viruses very informative, especially the use of viruses to make future batteries. But this is the sentence that concerns me and Bill Gates has been accused of doing.
    “Viruses are often modified so they can be used as vectors for inserting genetic information into other organisms” and “Genetically modified viruses that make the target animals infertile through immunocontraception have been created in the laboratory[123] as well as others that target the developmental stage of the animal.[124] There are concerns with using this approach regarding virus containment[123] and cross species infection.[125] ”

    Anybody worried yet?
    I found all this while looking for an article I read on a real organism designed to create alcohol (sugar) out of biodegradable material to increase the efficiency of farmland. It worked great, in fact it ended up sterilizing soil as it would eat and disinfect all organisms killing the roots of plants, Breaking down all organic material live and dead. Had it escaped the lab and the sterilized farmland it was tested on, it would have spread to consume all life on the planet. A scenario similar to the movie “interstellar” bio contagion.

    This could be really interesting.
    There is a great deal of anger growing about the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.

    There have been a few local protests, but as this gains attention nationally, I would expect to see more (based on historical trends).

    Will DeBlasio block such a protest in NY? I would LOVE to see that clash.

    As for the shooting itself…
    The only reason there have been no arrests, based on articles read, is the claim that a grand jury cannot be convened because of The Pandemic. This is weak sauce.

    The fact that LE cut back enforcement actions because of this crap is bad enough. But not arresting for what appears to be an obvious case of vigilantism run amok (at a minimum) or out right murder (at the worst) because of the lock down is a sure and quick way to end any sense that Rule of Law still exists.
