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.

    A great song from the 60’s! Awesome to see the performer on crappy 1960’s technology video…lends a certain authenticity to it. Most on-air performances were lip-synched, e.g. American Bandstand. I moan the demise of live or lip-synched performances on TV today. I was pleased to have enjoyed late night “In Concert” and “Saturday Night Special” broadcasts of the early 70’s! A teenaged guy then could never afford to attend concerts like that without being independently wealth! Networks could have never done it if the artists were commanding the $$$$ they are making today. One episode of “In Concert” would cost ABC billions today.

    Also…it is refreshing to see a somewhat refreshing normal-appearing performer singing about an innocent kind of love and commitment that we no longer have. Now we a subjected to threats of violence, abuse and rape in a thoroughly disgusting venue.

    Probably denounced as a stalker.
