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.

Three leftist protesters arrested in Chicago

Brownshirts: During a leftist protest today in Chicago, where the protesters wore masks and chanted “Cops and Klan go hand in hand,” three demonstrators were arrested when they tried to block traffic.

Remember, these people are not demonstrating against any real racism or oppression. What they are protesting is the existence of the United States and American culture. Anything they can do to destroy it will please them.

I must add that a red flag should immediately be raised against anyone who requires a mask to protest. If you do not have evil intent you have no reason to hide your face.

    We are long past the time when harsh language and impassioned pleas to the uneducated and clearly inferior cultures in the USA will do any good. Illegal aliens and Hyphenated ‘Americans’ are nothing but the lapdogs for the Democratic party,all in hopes of getting free handouts money and food, and of course , cellphones. This in exchange for an illegal vote for HRC. Good GOD , our last CRIMINAL, TRAITOR POTUS , Barry O, just before the election openly encouraged illegal voting, as long as it was for the queen of darkness. Why can’t we lock these gangsters up? We seem to be rounding up M13 with no sweat whatsoever, but the Democrats as a whole remain untouchable. As long as they have a proper trial, Sic Semper Tyrannis

    Someone should tell Clinton and her sordid crew to ResISt in Peace.

    North Carolina General Statute 14-12.7
    No person or persons at least 16 years of age shall, while wearing any mask, hood or device whereby the person, face or voice is disguised so as to conceal the identity of the wearer, enter, be or appear upon any lane, walkway, alley, street, road, highway or other public way in this State.
    I do not understand why this law is ignored by law enforcement.

    The current situation has the potential to get very ugly.

    I have sworn a oath twice, to protect and defend the Constitution, from all enemies,
    domestic and foreign. I have never rescinded my solemn vow.

    GOD bless America!

    Chicago has quite the historical bent for anarchy-related activity.
    Reference: “Haymarket Riots of 1886.”

    Danny–
    Thanks for referencing that N.C. Statute. (I’d be interested it the history of it’s formulation.) Michigan has something similar, but I can’t readily locate a link. I believe it came about as a response to klan activity in the 1920’s.

    If you do not have evil intent you have no reason to hide your face.

    Just out of curiosity, how do you feel about people who post to the internet anonymously or use handles?

  • Jim Davis: An excellent question. Personally, I think those that do not use their real name have far less creditability, and get that from me. I put my name behind everything I write, and think everyone should do the same.

    The ability to hide on the internet, on Twitter especially, is the cause of a lot of our problems, as it has allowed bad people to say vile things without consequences. Worse, it has allowed them to team up (which seems impossible but is happening) to destroy those they disagree with.

    When you sign your own name to what you write, it forces upon you personal responsibility, forcing you to write like an adult and treat others with respect.
