Reaction Points (#10)

Dark Matter joins the stable of scarily professional NRx online journals.

This is still my candidate for the most important thing happening right now. (Unless you count this (or of course this))

John Derbyshire: “When I read news from the country of my birth, the emotions I experience (with rare exceptions) are disgust, horror, and despair.” + Sailer on Handle at VDare. ++ Singapore and HBD.

… and speaking of Handle: “… what do you call it when you have plenty of clever, motivated people who are pretty good at coming up with creative and novel ways of attacking the same impossible problem, and who can make fame and fortune for themselves regardless of actual results, yet are unable or unwilling to ever acknowledge that the problem itself is insoluble by its very nature because such acknowledgement is taboo? […] You call it, ‘America’.”

Nydwracu goes dark darker.

Monarchy doesn’t happen because you want it to happen. (Kings, kings, kings, kings.)

More stick.

Connectivity and diversity.

Fanged numinous.

Some old deutero-geek identitarianism (@PuzzlePirate: “The INTJ is strong in this one”).

The Forever War.

Don’t cry for me Venezuela.

Time for some new Nazis (… and other great news). + Some select Ukraine commentary.

Jared Taylor on Nicholas Wade’s new book.

Minor tragedies.

    That National Review link was something else. Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia.

    Yes, the palpable hunger for world war on all sides is quite something.

    Interesting threshold effects.

    Your minor tragedy link vs. this.

    In 1928, 40 kids of age 10-14 killed themselves. In 2006, 216 did. Population did not quintuple…moreover, this dramatic increase is just in this cohort. (From < 0.5 to ~1.5 per 100k) The overall rate has not gone up much. (Though buggered by advanced trauma medicine, even assuming reports aren't defrauded.)

    Dudes 15-19 used to kill themselves slightly more often than chicks. Now it happens four times as often, roughly matching the adult ratio in 1928.

    In 1928 these papers were written by adults.
    "So few children in the United States commit suicide that juvenile suicides are not a problem." Astounding. I'm floored.

    In 2006…well, spare yourself. I'm sure you can imagine. Don't do that either if you don't have to.

    Since I did these calculations anyway
