Gnome Management in the Garden
Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!
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.

Defoliating trees! I’ve never heard their chatter before, but if it could be recorded and played back at slow speed, we might be able to determine what else they plan to do!
Thanks for these tips on gnome control!
I would have liked to have seen more explanation of the gnomenclature to aid in identifying the various species. I also wonder how effective statues of the Virgin Mary are in gnome control.
Best not to let them get a foothold outside because then they start working their way in the house and then you can kiss your underwear goodbye.
If I had submitted that I would have used a gnome de plume.
Thankfully the English variety are not as industrious as the Alaskan breed, (Originally discovered near Nome). There is some speculation that the Alaskan variety have interbred with the northern Sinterclaus elves…
I have a far more vigorous for of control.
So Gnome control is similar to gun control? – Breath out, hold, front site, squeeze…
