Chaos Patch (#105)

(Open thread + links)

Metaculture. The global polyhedron (1, 2). Fake flights from selection. Mandatory participation in providence. Cropped-back ‘concerns‘. The asymmetric spectrum. Raw power. Mind-control. Uncontrolled government (is cancer). Hoppe against democracy (podcast). The weekly round (the SSC link-fest).

The “war on western lifestyle” [*facepalm*]. Droned. Submarine Karachi? SA mark-down. Europe raped (1, 2) rightwards (1, 2, 3). Canadian immigration madness. Multicultural knots. Where it could end. China in Djibouti. The inevitability of war (plus). Weakness provokes aggression (1, 2). Democracy and globalization in retreat. End of Neoconservatism.

Price discovery on Rohypnol. The metallic break-point. Trust destruction. Panic at the ECB. SF versus tech. Oil economics. Surveillance capitalism.

Trumpenführer panic report (1, 2, 3, 4). Street politics (plus). Revolution 2.0. “… the GOP would obviously prefer to lose the election rather than have Trump win” (note). Racial politics. Signs of sympathy (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8). Ditch and switch. An upside-down version of the Outsideness strategy for leftists. Trump in context (1, 2, 3).

America’s four parties. “In order to accelerate the collapse, the best president will be the person who is the most corrupt, the most pro-government and most anti-liberty.”

Twitter and beyond. Cli-fi. #TheTriggering (plus). Politicized science (video). The diversity scam.

IQ matters more. Han genetics. The $999 genome. Biology goes ape. Psychology in crisis (1, 2, 3). What should a theory of consciousness look like? Genius geno-tech (video). Faith in evolution.

Quote note (#230)


Things are going to get a lot more ugly, before this is over. This is high amygdala, on all sides, from the conservatives who can’t take the delusions that are leading us to doom and failure, to the liberals who are panicking and breaking mentally, as reality becomes unavoidable.

As crazy as it is to contemplate, this is barely a smidgen into the apocalypse. We are still swimming in wealth compared to what is to come.

When the real apocalypse hits, I’d bet on mortality, and a fair amount of it.
