Chaos Patch (#104)
(Open thread + links)
Time horizons. Accountability (and a modest suggestion). Principles. Heartiste on the JQ (Jim comments), also highly relevant (plus response), then, for the full triad. Against direct democracy. The last straw. Finding RF too deranged to specifically link right now, but there’s lots going on there. The weekly round, in the Cathedral.
“If there’s a global emotional illness related to economic decline, my suspicion would be that it’s a form of collapse-impatience.” Heidegger’s revolutionary children (note). “… freedom, to be more powerful than terror, must be successfully protected.” American identity, also. Ideological sorting. Net-centric warfare. WN rising.
Lessons from Malaysia. Examining Egypt, and Yemen. Oh, Canada. Good and bad passports. France is stuck. A Eurabian horror story. “After nearly 60 years of European integration, we are entering the age of disintegration.” Raspail’s prophecy, and more (1, 2, 3). The Swedish diaspora. Over-stretched liberals (video).
Trumpenführer panic report (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). Analysis. The Dugin endorsement, and more (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), including black ministers from Virginia (video), and hmmm. The brown scare gets old. The lectures aren’t working (1, 2, 3). Neoconservatives head home. McArdle corner(ed 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), and other reservations. Barn-burners will be disappointed. Cascades and games (did he swerve?). Democracy did it. (“Democracy, not even once.”) Trump’s twitter operation. “There is no hope for the future of capitalist prosperity and a free society at home and world peace abroad unless the Republican Party is destroyed.” GOP suicide watch (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Did they get baby Trump yet?
Time and black holes. Surreal trajectories. Viral anti-virus. Sexual function. Old lizards. Deep ancestry. Chimp religion? Your brain on VR. More Right science links. Viscous populations. Nootropics. Physics of space battles.
