Chaos Patch (#125)

(Open thread + links)

NRx and the Alt-Right (1, 2).
Exit as white flight. The submission option. Organizational intelligence. An epic NRx discussion (starts here). New blogs. Nihilism (the book). The (most recent) weekly round, plus outliers.

What Hillary did (1, 2, 3, 4). Some of the best Alt-Right commentary (1, 2, 3), and some of the most dismal (1, 2, 3, 4). Some additional primers (1, 2, 3, 4). The Amerika take (1, 2, 3). The SPLC does its thing. The Alt-Right discussed by Stefan Molyneux and Vox Day (video). Taylor and Spencer profiles. In the lion’s den. Pepe is the GOP now. Scraps (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). WN distress by the numbers.

Trumpenführer panic report (1, 2, 3, 4). This one is actually well done. A death rattle from mainstream media. Trumpism transcends Trump. Who are these people? The baby-eating story was exaggerated. Deep history of the Muslim thing. A Trump miscellany (1, 2, 3).

Distinguishing the left from progressivism. (From the Left) “There is no such thing as neoliberalism.” How libertarians lost it. Wisconsin goes to shit.

Death by pooling (plus).

How democracy dies in France, taking the EU with it. Germany’s agony. An open letter to the Ukraine. Project Fear was bullshit (1, 2). The Islamic nightmare (1, 2, 3).

Death by Facebook. Soc-media Islamophobia is awful. Troll terror at Time (1, 2). My sides (plus). News management. Survival through anonymity (plus). The Cuck (seriously). Haidt is always worth listening to.

Leftist Race Politics never stops. Edgy. “If [HR departments] really cared, they would take a leaf from agricultural geneticists.” The campus race-revolution marches on. Quaklity liberal torture on race (1, 2). The dysgenic motor. This is more interesting than it looks. Patrilineages. Deep bias. Race realism (1, 2). Cargo cult pedagogy. Why HBD?

Going Sicilian on Zika. Fun with DNA.

Caesium clocks. Physics is broken (?).

China pushes the limits (relevant). Cryptic. This couldn’t possibly be dangerous. Bad bots.

Limits of falsifiability.

Quote note (#279)

Dampier in full-flight:

… the fundamental political rights that Americans have come to expect tend not to be respected by either the political elites in Washington and academia or the reinforcements that they’re importing over the borders by the millions. […] The left realizes this. They think it’s great, because they want to crush the skull of the host culture and suck out its brains. This is a rich country with lots of stuff to steal that isn’t nailed down properly. The rules against stealing impede the program. …

The subsequent analysis is close to incontestable.

There’s so much “I can’t even …” packed into this tweet, I just had to share it.

Quote note (#278)

Over a year old, but lucid, from Lew Rockwell (via):

… maybe a racist is someone who believes different groups tend to have common characteristics, even while acknowledging the axiomatic point that each individual person is unique. But whether it’s family structure, a penchant for alcoholism, a reputation for hard work, or a great many other qualities, Thomas Sowell has assembled a vast body of work showing that these traits are not even close to being distributed equally across populations. […] The Chinese, for example, gained reputations in countries all over the world for working very hard, often under especially difficult conditions. (As a matter of fact, this is one of the reasons American labor unions despised Chinese workers in the nineteenth century.) By the mid-20th century, the Chinese minority dominated major sectors of the Malaysian economy even though they were officially discriminated against in the Malaysian constitution, and earned twice the income of the average Malay. They owned the vast majority of the rice mills in Thailand and the Philippines. They conducted more than 70 percent of the retail trade in Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Malaysia. […] We could tell a similar story about Armenians in various parts of the world, as well as Jews and East Indians. Japanese-Americans went from being so badly discriminated against that they were confined to camps during World War II to equaling whites in income by 1959 and exceeding whites in income a decade later by one-third. …

Quote note (#277)

Fernandez on the subsidence of security into the occult:

If America still mounts guard on the Wall, it must do so in secret. Recent events show that only acceptable way to provide the guard is with Special Forces and drones and spooks and PMCs. In a word, the West must be defended by things that are deniable and disposable.

Democracy ensures that grown-up government can only happen in secret.

(This was prompted by Fernandez, too, on basically the same topic.)

Disconnection III

Broken Internet here (which is driving me mildly insane). This is tapped out on my crappy tablet. If passing through the Great Gates of Kek starts like this, my enthusiasm is waning already.

Feel free to treat this as an open thread. Lots of interesting discussion on the Alt-Right / NRx gulf in the previous comment threads IMHO, so carry on …

(From the Occult NRx perspective, the Alt-Right can have the presidency, but it can’t have Kek — without a scrap … It’s, of course, a Brahmin thing …)

James Kirkpatrick defending the Alt-Right at Unz:

All politics in the Information Age is a media war.

There’s almost certainly massive consensus on this point, although it’s not in the interests of installed power to emphasize the fact.
