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.

Today’s blacklisted American: Rappers have song banned by Spotify & SoundCloud for criticizing BLM, government lockdowns, and the modern perverse sexual movement

The Bill of Rights cancelled at SoundCloud and Spotify
No free speech allowed at SoundCloud or Spotify.

Persecution is now cool! Rappers Bryson Grey and Patriot J have had a song with the opening line “They might ban me for this song” banned by Spotify & SoundCloud.

The song strongly criticized BLM, the government lockdowns, and the modern perverse sexual movement. Bryson noted in announcing the Spotify ban that though these same outlets claimed the song was banned for hateful speech, they do not ban much more violent rapper songs that glorify murder, crime, and drug use.

Patriot J responded by pointing out that other black rappers can glorify death, crime and all kinds of immoral and disgusting lifestyles, “but if you mess around and rap about traditional values and expose truths they will BAN YOU!”

“Remember y’all, you can rap about anything you want except going against the LGBT. You can rap about your vagina to children all day, you can rap about popping pills, you can rap about doing crime… but not the forbidden topic,” tweeted Bryson Gray.

This second link also included this tidbit about the intolerant employees at Spotify:

Music icon Ian Brown revealed that Spotify had deleted his anti-lockdown song Little Seed Big Tree, while it was also reported that Spotify employees threatened a mutiny if the company didn’t blacklist episodes of the Joe Rogan podcast. [emphasis mine]

The highlighted words prove that this oppression is not coming from government or fascist leaders, but from a large percentage of the population that no longer believes in free speech but instead endorses subjugation for anyone who disagrees with them. These grass-roots tyrants will not only vote for tyrants, they will band together to make any social setting they participate in a version of Orwell’s 1984.

What makes this situation even more terrifying is that too many people who strongly oppose this intolerance are also too cowed to fight it. They go along to get along, and thus the bullies win, time and again.

As for SoundCloud, today’s story simply reinforces yesterday’s SoundCloud blacklisting story, both of which show how close-minded that company is to diverse ideas.

Personally, I cannot imagine what it must be like to work at a corporation today. I certainly couldn’t survive there, as I despise bullies and will never bow to them. I would stand up to them and defend freedom of speech for everyone, even those I disagreed with. Which of course means I would be quickly fired by corporate management, who appears now routinely aligned with the bullies and fascists that make up too much of today’s population.

    I left a corporate job because of this sort of PC garbage being forced on everyone, for a smaller company with – ironically – far more women and minorities. I’m also recruiting those from the old company disgusted with the PC atmosphere, and raking in big fees.

    So sometimes the good guys win.

    If you allow employees to bully you, you will more bullying and more victims of that abuse.

    Not sure about the attribution of these words but they sure ring true.

    “I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or my grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.” Carl Sagan, in “The Demon Haunted World” (1996)

    “Tekashi 6ix9ine refuses to support homeless dad: ‘My biological father abandoned me’”

    The culture of dependency has its costs, and both political party’s one way or another are responsible for it and only strong and true American leadership can in some way lead us through this cultural and political cycle we must go through.

    Cant go around, cant go under or over it, we must go through it.

    Buckle up, because *IT* is coming.

  • Cotour

    And what is but one aspect of *IT*?

    “The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is completely losing it along with the rest of those involved in THE BIG LIE in Arizona!
    Chairman Jack Sellers recently released a statement where he told the Arizona Senate to be ready for them to fight the results. He understands exactly what is coming.”

    And the Lefts reaction to truth will be desperate, red faced and spittle laden and possibly violent.

    Most of those with a “D” as an indicator of their political affiliation are only half, if that informed about most everything concerning politics and the news pumped out by the fraudulent and now clearly corrupted big tech corporate media / Social Media in my experience.

    EVERYTHING has been perverted, its the nature of the beast and the beast does not give back what it has stolen willingly and with a smile.

    Mr. O’Leary – I don’t think it’s ironic at all. Have to remember that all the PC bullying supposedly on behalf of women and minorities isn’t really on their behalf at all. They’re just a convenient avenue to ride to and consolidate power. As Mr. Z has pointed out, the Left doesn’t really care about the people they claim to represent. As a longtime employee at 2 small consulting firms, I’ve observed that professionals from all backgrounds can work together perfectly well. Instead of sensitivity training and ‘implicit bias awareness’ (or whatever), I suggest the Golden Rule and the concept of mutual respect. Much simpler. Fortunately a smaller company will be saddled with less HR-type nonsense (not zero, thanks to being in a place like California, but minimal).
