Chaos Patch (#49)

(Open thread + links)

Reclaiming Burke. NRx culture, or tradition. A question of order. The ontology of modernity. Be the trigger (1, 2, 3, no one can say they weren’t warned). White flight (ultimate). Marxism. Fixing America. This could be a lot worse. Angelic machines. Where Urbit’s at. Fragged Friday is still going strong, Secession Lagniappe is back, the Metastasis continues (1, 2, 3, 4).

America’s (unplayed) Gulen card. ISIS buried regime change (it’s not America’s problem). Normalized terror. Camp of the Saints report: “I meet Afghans, Sudanese, Iraqis, Syrians, Libyans, Eritreans, Pakistanis, Iranians … the list goes on.” Based Blackwater. America and the Ukraine (plus a modest proposal). What India isn’t doing.

The second economy. Tribes and jobs. Expect more of the same. The post-petrodollar epoch. Peak parasitism?

The new conformity (fact free, but can bite).

Historical vicissitudes of guilt culture. Eugenics spelled out. Bred for gullibility? NRO crosses the line (and it’s noticed). Jewish leftism. EthnoBolshevism.

Sun stuff.

Chesterton and Donovan on men and women. Lashed.

Into the deep web. Virtual totalitarian urbanism. Chinese Internet censorship choir.

An alternative universe would help the economy.

Down the rabbit hole (+ (video)).

Legalism

The real core of the Chinese tradition?

Chinese Friend: Nobody in this country believes in anything anymore.
Foreign Devil: So what do you think they should believe in?
Chinese Friend: Unless people are punished more severely, they won’t behave themselves.

Quote note (#149)

Welcome clarity:

It is now clear beyond all reasonable doubt that Hitler and his associates believed they were socialists, and that others, including democratic socialists, thought so too. The title of National Socialism was not hypocritical. […] Hitler’s discovery was that socialism could be national as well as international. There could be a national socialism. That is how he reportedly talked to his fellow Nazi Otto Wagener in the early 1930s. The socialism of the future would lie in “the community of the volk”, not in internationalism, he claimed, and his task was to “convert the German volk to socialism without simply killing off the old individualists”, meaning the entrepreneurial and managerial classes left from the age of liberalism. They should be used, not destroyed. The state could control, after all, without owning, guided by a single party, the economy could be planned and directed without dispossessing the propertied classes.

(They’re not on the Right, and they’re not our friends.)
