Chaos Patch (#87)
(Open thread + links)
What is neoreaction? (An instant classic.) Plus, order and freedom. The new god. False positives. Inventing the State. Meme wars. Magic dirt theory. The weekly round, in doom, and Cathedral round-up.
Chinese fertility policy. India and Pakistan at the brink. Goodbye Sweden. Crashing the gates. Open borders under stress.
Die off (1, 2, 3, 4). Secession for London (and beyond)? Liberal self-destruction. “I doubt the liberal view will prevail.” “I have no faith at all in liberalism.” Limits of satire.
Antarctic uncertainties. Why distrust of science makes sense. Urban Madness.
The problem with pagans. Brands of Satanism. Why Christians go left. Virtue signaling.
Dim war, and dimming Deutschland. The Iron Law of Intelligence. High IQ genetics (with comment). A schizophrenia spectrum? Nature > nurture, and other signs of narrative collapse.
Submission commentary from Van Creveld, Sailer, Knausgaard, Douthat (and relevant). NPI commentary (1, 2, 3, 4).
Star Trek and scarcity.
RIP René Girard (plus). What Huxley saw.
Automobile obsolescence. Computer blood. CRISPR for humans by 2017.
Coywolves. Zombie physics. Viral dark matter. Where Mars’ water went.
