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.

September 19, 2018 Zimmerman Beyond Reality appearance

If you want to listen to my appearance yesterday on Beyond Reality Radio, the podcast is now available on youtube here, cued to the start of the segment.

This appearance was a real pleasure, because it was very clear the hosts had not only researched things beforehand so they could come up with good questions, they also listened to what I actually said. I hope to appear again on their show.

    “I enjoyed the show with your guest Bob Zimmerman September 19. Your good show prep was obvious by your insightful questions. There was a comment about having him back for a future show to discuss his research on climate change. I hope that will happen and look forward to that show.”

    Bob, I enjoyed very much listening to your interview on the “Beyond Reality” radio show. I left a very nice comment on the YouTube site and also said that I would subscribe and listen to their show since I had never heard about it before now. I encourage others to comment on the YouTube site as mine, as of now, is the only one.

    Gary M.-
    I’m in on that as well.
    Very high quality show!
    (their affiliate count impresses me, but they are not broadcast in my market, but I’ll do the YT view.)

    Views of the show (at YT), btw, have increased from 59 to 159….

    We need a volunteer to tidy up Mr. Z’s., IMDB page….
    (There are like’ 14 “Robert Zimmerman’s, but it’s there…)
