Chaos Patch (#50)

(Open thread + links)

Masters of the NRx energy cycle right now: Hurlock (on economic history, 1, 2, 3) and Poseidon (on significant triangles, 1, 2). Dampier has settled into a marathonrunner pace. Mango politics. “You want to save the world? Have the strength to walk away.” Never trust a non-biologian. Meanwhile, in the Augean Stables of absurd lies. The Christian Question. Teleotheology, and cyclical demography. The worse, the better. Chatting with Chesterton. No NRX for Mike (loosely related). Still speciating. Finally! Reaction rounds.

The slow, painful death of democracy. Russia is cooked. A fairly massive Greek-chicken dump (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) — when it’s time to finally go over the cliff, you get the drivers you deserve. US and China on opposite paths. The strong dollar illusion. Into the crack-up phase?

When Keynes spoke the truth. Classic left libertarian irritability (more here).

On the Internet, darkness will win (with some intriguing twists).

That’s the stupidest, most easily avoidable path to self-destruction ever. And yet it seems to be the one we’re on.” Disparate impact dogma is going to hurt. When minorities attack (each other). Stubbornly non-ethnic whites (stubbornly not looking for understanding). The truth will set you free.

Alain de Benoist on fascism. Submission reviewed. Luther is back.

When Swatch tried to decimalize global time.

Newton’s papers.

Urban Defense

There’s an easy solution to the ‘tragedy of the commons’ — abolish the commons. It works in cities too.

Warning: such policies can produce an upsetting vibrancy deficit, by deterring vagrants and panhandlers from participating in street life within your urban enclave.

Liberal comment on the Neocameral City: “It was impressive in its own way, I guess, but I was deeply distressed about the absence of bums.”
