Quote note (#351)

Dugin seems a little upset:

Marine Le Pen lost the elections. Globalist Macron won. Transnational (and transgender) elites defeated the People. Welcome to Hell! The fall continues. Defeat of the People is our defeat. And the blow must be taken as a blow. It makes no sense to grumble: “We said …” Life – including political life, and political life in the first place – is a war. The battle is lost, but the war is not. Everything is ahead. The world’s scum will not give up and try to drag the whole of humanity into the abyss. But we do not lose our hands. Now it is clear that Resistance with necessity must be global. After all, the enemy is global.
The old parties are virtually destroyed. There are neither right nor left. There are the People and Elites, Europeans and the global financial oligarchy. Marine performed perfectly. She is henceforth the ideological pole of the Resistance.
Since Macron fundamentally can not do anything, and the crisis will only deepen, now, without losing a minute, we must prepare for the next stage of our common struggle – for France, Europe and mankind. Our name is Marine Le Pen!

Putting this here to go meta.

As discussed in the ensuing conversation, disappearing tweets provide an education in mind-control, and impermanence.

Venezuela’s near-future (but it could be anything):

[Some X] will not be pretty, but it is difficult to see how it can be avoided.

This is the world now.

Robert D. Kaplan on a perennially crucial topic:

Post-smug politics:

One of the most arresting aspects of the start of the Trump era is that nearly everyone, regardless of their political persuasion, seems convinced that their side is losing.

Perhaps because the thing that’s winning is unrecognizable? Partly its the rise of China, partly its Capital phase-transition, and partly its the messy stage of collapse. In any case, it looks like the signature of the Outside.

“I don’t think of her as a machine …”

“… She’s a weapon.”

Ignore Rotten Tomatoes. Despite the insufficiently-dissolved moral core (and attendant Cartesian metaphysics), this movie is mind-woundingly great. Its visualization of the near future is unmatched. Scarlett Johansson’s body disintegrates perfectly.

“How do you know what’s glitch, and what’s me?”
