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.

An evening pause: It all depends on how you define God. To me, God is the entire universe, of which I am part. To recognize such a reality is terribly humbling, and leads to wisdom.

    Robert,
    While I absolutely respect your belief, to say that God is the entire universe is to actually diminish who the person of God is.
    While the universe, at least to us little humans, is infinite, the God who created the universe with a Word, is infinitely larger than our infinite universe. That same God, who loved us rebellious and lost little creatures so much, that He became one of us, born in a manger, and sacrificed Himself on a cross so that we could all be with Him one day and forever.
    THAT is humbling! That is what Christmas is all about. We celebrate the God who became a man to save all men!

    Merry Christmas

    wayne … I don’t know whether that video is funny or devastating … I am an anti- “karen” (my favorite line delivered by the guy in that beautiful English accent: “There’s a name for that demographic!”) in that I am likely to get mouthy or derisive with people who ARE wearing masks in their cars or outside, here in my part of Ca where the weather is beautiful and temps are in the mid 70s.

    I yell “Hey, 99.9something percent of all of us are fine after a year of this lockdown — can’t you do math? Isn’t 99.9something percent okay good for you?” When I walk up to a door with a sign on it about wearing a mask, I flip the sign off as a matter of course. I burst out laughing and point at those wearing masks outdoors or in a car, or if I’m driving I’ll slow down and stare at masked pedestrians like they have lobsters coming out of their ears, and then laugh … I feel it is my duty to make things as unpleasant as possible for mask social distancing believers. They need to be stopped because they are no longer just annoying, they have become bloody dangerous, and I don’t mean “bloody” in the English profanity sense, I mean it as in: If the Karens (many are men) continue being bossy jerks, there will be blood shed.
