Chaos Patch (#110)
(Open thread + links)
Tactical Freudianism. Passivism debate. Anti-formalism. Universality is death (plus). An unwelcome intervention. The Brotherhood. “The Age of Destruction must come and pass; the wheel must turn; it is unavoidable.” Democracy Shmemocracy. Hestia’s latest. The weekly round.
Alt-Right provokes conniptions (1, 2, 3), and a poem. Neoliberalism in question (1, 2, 3). The simple source of socialist failure (relevant). Ideology 101. The masochistic right. Jacobins are not conservatives. Culture war in cyberspace (and a cry from the cross-fire zone). Crypto-realism. Capital escapes.
Abstraction and the Flynn Effect. Japanese biodiversity. Appalachia (1, 2). Lesbian eugenics. The blank slate crumbles. Criminal correlations. Out of autism. Martyrdom in the robes of science. Questions of sentience in cephalopods and machines.
Primes and particles.
