Chaos Patch (#61)

(Open thread — just back from Xi’an, after delayed flight, and punchy as hell. I’ll plug some links in tomorrow.)

ADDED: What the DE is for. NRx vs. WN. Egalitarianism ruins everything. Triggered by Western Civilization. Untapped allies. Introducing Futurist Traditionalism, and democracy as disease. Dreams of right unity. Fragments. The weekly rounds.

At some point, Westerners will have to start recognizing that there’s less of a ‘we’ in this than we’re accustomed to thinking. Many Western countries aren’t going to make it. Many regions aren’t going to make it. Many religious groups aren’t going to make it. For small groups of men to solve problems, the problem space has to be shrunk down to a manageable level. Fixing the US isn’t possible; salvaging a portion of it is.

From general election to secession (1, 2, 3, 4). More Schadenfreude-flavored UK regime-continuity popcorn (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

Oil glut. Strategic alterations. Wall Street is broken.

Vox gets it (backwards). End-game for Assad?

Left auto-cannibalization watch. (The wholly intra-Islamic version is even more entertaining.) Boiling the Muslim frog.

Defending Wade in detail.

Fake depth.

A Gaudi appreciation. Beauty and fit. American beauty. Fear of the night.

Wolfe on the origins of Silicon Valley (classic).

A filtered future. Selective deregulation (left-style). Dindu Benankeism. Segregation and diversity. A fluffy take on polarization. Peak collapse (if the new millennium coughs up a more deteriorated story than this, things are even worse than I’d thought). Cry-bullies.

ADDED: A few links collected during the Xi’an trip, and today, have been spliced in.

    Reading a biography of Allen Dulles. Was anyone more “Cathedral” (well, his brother John Foster. See “American Malvern”)? However, I think I’m being seduced. I have an urge to get my son into Princeton.

    ‘…Dulles was no different except that his form of exceptionalism was religious rather than philosophical. His first experience with international affairs had been as head of a Protestant commission engaged in promoting world peace… And he sought to apply the principles of his stern Presbyterian faith to the conduct of day-to-day American foreign policy…’

    The Atlantic, which has never been good, is descending into parody. Though the linked article is a particularly egregious example, a quick review of their website will turn up several articles nearly as bad. They were — and still are — ostensibly a centrist/moderate magazine, though. I can feel the Overton window shifting to the left, and it appears to be picking up speed.

    They’ve always been extremely middlebrow, but the last few years I’ve liked them for being what Salon used to be- a fairly good “reader’s digest” roundup of interesting studies and conversations being had among the think tank elite. Unfortunately, they’re quickly going to the way of post-2005 Salon- turning into another left-wing circlejerk.


    Zimriel Reply:

    In other words… both rags are still roundups of studies and conversations being had among the think tank elite. It’s just that this elite, itself, is becoming more homogeneous and less interesting.

    Roosh V on Dr. Oz

    Comic gold begins at 17:35. You could probably base your currency on it. (When they put there hands above their head and green screen in “STRONG” like they are actually lifting something is metaphor-perfection.)

    A couple of other notes:

    1) Roosh could have looked Dr. Oz in the eyes and said “I don’t believe you” after almost every sentence Oz said and had a great effect.

    2) Notice when Dr. Oz says “I’d like to scan your brain because there are parts missing.” Great bit for admins “Brain Eaters” horror stories.


    Mark Yuray Reply:

    I had a great time watching that video. Oz is a liar, honorary happy merchant and scammer who makes a living pandering to overweight women watching daytime television at home. Roosh was clearly in shock half the time, as I would be if I had to listen to an obese harridan claim to be confident and unaffected by insults then immediately afterwards relate her stories about “letting em have it” when people make fun of her. The whole show was a pathetic farce displaying a million reasons America fully deserves all the Baltimores and Fergusons in its future.

    Best parts:

    “Roosh V calls himself the leader of the ‘International Fat Shaming Movement'”

    “He has even declared jihad on fat women.”

    “We’re all messed up! That’s who we are!” (Audience starts clapping)

    “Say hi to Kamika, she is a plus size model trying to change the face of beauty.”

    Is it just me, or is More Right down? If it is down, is someone actually going out of their way to attack alt-right or reactionary sites?

    Usually when this happens to MR it’s just because someone forgot to pay the bill.


    Will Reply:

    I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, good thing it was a mundane explanation, but on the other something so basic makes me question the competency of the people running that site. I had just paid for their new book, and they newly started asking for donations, plus I thought phalanx had a paid membership and a number of members. What the hell are they doing over there?


    SanguineEmpiricist Reply:

    It happens.

    Nyan Sandwich Reply:

    Mike is responsible for the finances of MR. The rest of us just post there. Phalanx, while possibly being a less-than competent project, is at least uncorrellated in its competence with what happens to MR.

    haishan Reply:

    I don’t have anything personal against Mike, but how can you credibly claim to be a (the?) “leader of #NRx” if you can’t even pay your bills on time?

    Nyan Sandwich Reply:

    >implying Mike’s claim to be leader of NRx is anything near credible.

    Speaking of Weak Galt …

    Porn and video game addiction are thinning the ranks of virile young males (as seen outside their homes anyway). Will the world miss them? Perhaps not. It’s a more humane solution than war for dealing with the perennial issue of excess males.


    E. Antony Gray (@RiverC) Reply:

    ain’ thinning the dindus tho, is it.

    Too optimistic! These are not the excess males; we’re thinning the useful ones.


    Kgaard Reply:

    Well they’re not reproductively useful. Women don’t want them so they drop out. They may resurface for a cubicle job later though. That way it all works out: Their intellectual usefulness is harnessed, their reproductive worthlessness is channeled into porn. Meanwhile reproductively useful men have serial families, getting married once in their 20s (2 kids) and again in their late 30s or 40s (2 more kids). So half the male population can do porn and the other half can have two families in succession. It all works out. We revert to the harem mode, as r/K theory would dictate during times of plenty.


    E. Antony Gray (@RiverC) Reply:


    Those who get into porn are just those with sex drives – it is not a smart filter. Those ‘serial’ men will have two children after six wives.

    It’s chemotherapy.

    That something was Dissenting Protestantism itself.

    Interesting how Wolfe associates technology and the drive toward it with religion. The Protestant tradition is the do-it-yourself, hack-friendly work-around method that has aided humanity greatly in developing technology. But as the article points out, it brings with it a certain degeneracy because reward comes before results are shown except in one area. You can produce a transistor; your corporate culture, however, remains untested… as does its impact on the society around it. Fascinating article.


    E. Antony Gray (@RiverC) Reply:

    The one thing to take from it is a DIY attitude should always be encouraged and preserved for technology.

    The analogy of Manifest Destiny for space colonisation hated by the Left and promoted by the right is a poor fit with the apparent realities. I think it will be something between the Polynesian expansion (have to keep your pigs, chickens, fruit trees alive on the voyage over – no indigenes at your destination – pretty cut off when you get there) and the evolution of land animals (big biological remodelling, internal fertilisation etc.)

    On another theme, here’s Adam Parfrey on American fraternal orders. Interesting use of agree and amplify by Masons against critics – ‘Yes we’re all about the goats – goats a-go-go!’.

    Limited liability

    I’ve got mixed feelings on it. On one hand, it seems like it is a necessary capitalist ingredient. On the other hand, it seems like having limited liability partners is ok, as long as there is atleast one person with unlimited liability.

    If every partner in an enterprise had limited liability, then how is the martingaling towards truly catastrophic events avoided?

    Lol. We apparently don’t even need intelligence operations of any scale to be able to diagnose problems, we’re able to do it live. Who knew it was this easy.
