Michael Nesmith – Joanne

An evening pause: Performed live 1992. For my young readers, Nesmith was one of the Monkees, but was also a successful songwriter and performer in his own right.

Conscious Choice cover

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.

 

All editions available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors.

    Not only do I remember The Monkees, I actually saw them perform in 1967. My dad was a policeman at that time and was working security that night. He arranged for my younger brother and myself to get in and he parked us close to him, just to the right of the stage. I vividly remember the crowd, the noise and most of all, the opening act.

    Two points to any/all that can name the group.

    Talk about eye/ear opening! As the article mentioned, the crowd wanted the bubble gum banter of their idols and cared not for explosive electric escapade of Hendrix. Luckily, for my dad, the entire show was brief and we survived without too much hearing damage. We were raised on bluegrass and country music. This was definitely out of his comfort zone. Being a budding teenager (12), I was just beginning to embrace the newer sounds, but it took me years to appreciate the Hendrix “experience”.

    As for Nesmith, I did following him a bit after the Monkees and even have an album or two of his.

    Thanks for jogging my old brain cells this morning…
