Reaction Points (#3)

Inspired by a comment from Nick Szabo, Federico passes on 20,000 words of Howard Scott Gordon’s Controlling the State. As a door-stopper, holding the constitutional question open, it’s hard to beat.

Steve Sailer asks why rigorous statistical thinking took so long to formulate. (The comment thread is excellent.)

In an interview with Nick Gillespie at Reason, Nassim Nicholas Taleb stumbles upon an under-appreciated aspect of Left Singularity: “The problem we have had in almost all Western countries is that nominally they say they are decentralizing, but effectively they’ve [given] more and more power to the central government. You want decisions to be spread out. Government debt is a result of centralization, and typically the cause of more centralization. It’s a very bad circle.”

At Occam’s Razor, Alfred W Clark works to spring Eugenics from the dungeons of thought crime. A seemingly untroubled Steve Hsu is just getting on with it. (Go China!)

Even the GoP-happy crowd at PJMedia are flirting with disintegration.

Edges of reality, charted.

Molestation Incorporated.

    I always thought English buggery was the best argument for Cochran’s pathogen theory of homosexuality.
    All those molested kids at boarding schools becoming molesters themselves, to a rate unknown in any other western society.

    The BBC appears to have branched out into pan-sexual abuse, with a pedophile slant.

    Wait, are you saying that Homosexual behavior is at least sometimes other than an expression of an immutable, inborn desire set and has cultural, social, and psychological-development content and influences, andIt often manifests itself in pedophiliac forms?

    Blasphemy. Of course, that was conventional wisdom of all but a tiny slice of the population no more than half a century ago, who concluded it was a legitimate reason to take precautions to keep the queers away from the young boys. Sailer’s gone on about this at length. But now that’s only acceptable to discuss if you’re talking about Catholic priests.

    Whoops, I should have made sure beforehand that my html ordered list markups would be supported here.

    I think you might be over-stressing the gay angle in this case. The BBC does equal-opportunity child rape.
