Chaos Patch (#88)

(Open thread + links)

This happened (sigh). Science and NRx. Pillars of NRx. Nostalgia for the future. The Idaho Project is still on. The weekly round, in doom.

Europe’s ominous migration crisis: video, welfare crash, and Raspail references (1, 2). Chaos in Germany and Sweden. Double-plus chaos in Paris (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), plus left responses (1, 2), thoughts, and reflections. Cultural diversity. The ways things could go.

Rough triangles in Syria. Beirut in the Islamic Vortex. Saudi goes for broke. ME futures. Burundi genocide watch.

Exit Tax. The deep state and secret war. Queer fascism.

Revolting students seek safe spaces (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), with additional right (plus) and left commentary. Gender sensitivities (sub-link). Victim conquerors. Nazi-Jew twins. Emoji microaggressions. Racism for kids. Leftist evil.

“The extraction of the humiliating public apology is one of the media‘s most powerful weapons. Someone becomes famous, we dig up dirt on the person, we rub it in his or her nose, and then we demand that the person get down on bended knee and beg forgiveness. … […] The subtext is always the same: If you want power in this country, you must accept the primacy of the press. It’s like paying the cover at the door of the world’s most exclusive club.”

Pilgrim heritage. Sola scriptura. The new church (full). Esoteric roots of Mormonism. Obscure French occultists. “… through Deleuze‚Äôs work we can gain insight into how, specifically, the simulacrum functions as part of the metastatic DNA of the anti-Christ.”

Junction boxes. Unstoppable Airbnb. Uber and urban governance.

Ritual epistemology. Master and slave. Lovecraft demoted (more). Feynman and the bomb. RIP Andre Glucksman.

Rat food. History of the human microbiome.
