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.

Threats of violence force cancellation of pro-life film screening

They’re coming for you next: A theater has cancelled a planned five day run of the pro-life film Unplanned because of numerous threats of violence against its management.

Salmar Community Association board member Chris Papworth confirmed on Thursday, July 4, that the board has agreed to pull the movie’s five-day run, which was set to begin on July 12 at the Salmar Classic. He said the difficult decision to cancel the film was made out of concern for the personal safety for Salmar Theatres management, who had received personal threats via social media.

“…[These threats included] an effort to dox employees or, specifically, the general manager, by releasing their personal information on social media and then encouraging people to go after them as the one responsible for some heinous act. We just aren’t prepared for those levels of hostility towards our general manager.”

I want to once again note the irrational level of hate and anger coming from the leftwing community (which is generally pro-abortion). Their disagreement with the political position of the film now apparently justifies violence and personal threats.

None of this will end well. Eventually the left’s hate and anger is not going to be satisfied with verbal threats or minor physical attacks. It is eventually going to compel them to acts of murder, because mere verbal threats and minor physical attacks will not be getting them what the want, emotionally. Only by killing their enemies can they satisfy that irrational hatred.

  • ” Only by killing their enemies can they satisfy that irrational hatred.”

    And not even then. As we’ve seen in academic and political circles, they will turn on themselves, with less mercy than they showed the opposition.

    Madness is in our midst, a total loss of reason, which has been fermenting for years and is about to boil over and explode, scorching us all. Anarchy is at the Gates, yea even breaking it down now at this very time.
    The Gates of Individual Freedom and Liberty have been breached.

    (Who actually owns this Theater?)

    Guess what, IT’S WORKING! They accomplished their objective and shut down the film. If it works, it’ds the rational thing to do. Also 1) they know from now on that the Salmar board has the spine of a jellyfish 2) Since they won, they will repeat the tactic, growing more outrageous with each demand. Which means when somebody finally resists, the explosion will be worse

    And yes, we’re talking about Canada, here.

    Here is a link to an article which seems to indicate that free speech may win in Canada.

    While the USA has been the world leader in many area, the pro-abortion area is not something to be proud of being a leader.
