Chaos Patch (#25)
(Open thread + free random prodding.)
I’m Rotheramed out, but anybody looking for substantial relevant reading material would probably be interested in this. Some of the ethnic-insider commentary is interesting too. (Plus, an Aljazeera perspective.)
+ Scruton on Rotherham, concluding with this instant classic: “After a few weeks all will have been swept under the carpet, and the work of destruction can resume”.
+ Dampier (whose conclusion is pure gold).
The torrential Dugin current continues. Alt-Righters should sympathize, suggests Radix. That’s probably true, and more evidence of the fundamental divergence between the ENR and NRx. There’s a substantial article at The Fourth Political Theory blog. Two older pieces (both fascinating, NIO suggestions). And also this. Related: Scary Strelkov, and (for comedy time) blame the MRAs for Putin.
A model of patient hereditarian argument.
Nicholas Wade responds (briefly and cogently) to his ‘critics’.
A darker shade of Dawkins.
An old lesson from Venezuela: “… you can’t suspend the laws of economics. You can’t print money to pay for things without creating inflation. And you can’t stop that inflation just by saying you want it to. But not only will this magical thinking fail, it will also create new and even worse problems like shortages. […] Capitalism is the worst economic system except for all the others.”
If this article is to be believed, Steampunk is basically Cathedral-format retro-futurism.
The economic establishment is sounding sad.
Amerika makes an anti-formalist challenge (response owed).
We still need to split.
Sanctity and Cyberspace.
Some bonus insane leftism.
