Chaos Patch (#85)

Dry-run for dictatorship. The multi-cultural defense against socialism (and the feminist one). White power. Asians in the age of microaggression (note). Revolution comes around (also, and also). “We cannot apologize enough.” The IRS @ work. What are British values? Idiocracy watch. Still closing. Correcting the Net. Who wants equality? Caplan being Caplan. Pagan revival (with a Girard twist). Ideology on the big screen.
“… rational people simply ignore their reports. […] This is a sad state of affairs, but it is, of course, the equality-theorists who are chiefly to blame for bringing it about. For they have created in recent years a climate of feeling in which many men are afraid to deny the equality-theory openly, and even ashamed to doubt it inwardly. Hence the phenomena which are now so observable, of hypocrisy, self-deception, and pious fraud: those invariable concomitants of a militant religion. … our contemporary equality-theorists are in fact (as I have hinted several times), religious rather than rational in their attitude to evidence.” Some data. A tale of two sisters.
The quantum stack. Fermi paradox intensification in space and time. Cometary alcohol. The anatomy of intelligence and the Internet. The intractable brain. Contesting the gap. For all your periodic tables needs. “Ebola was a warning we have yet to heed.” Puppy-sized spiders. Paramecium video.
“… it became clear that like the environmental movement itself, climate change had been hijacked and turned into the usual revenge-against-the-more-competent agenda of the left, involving first-world nations limiting themselves so that more numerous third world nations could pollute.” Trustless climatology.
