Why Iran?

The blog obviously isn’t coming from where Scott Aaronson is, and the title of this post isn’t even centrally his question, so I’m asking it.

If you were trying to discredit a demographic policy that discriminated against Islamization, the thing rolled out by the US administration looks like a good way to do it. Shouldn’t selecting against Salafism be the policy core? Such a stance could be easily based upon solid American precedent. This looks like something else entirely. (It’s a dog’s breakfast, which is to say hastily hashed-up populism food.)

ADDED: The flip-side to Scott Aaronson’s concerns (from his own comment thread).

Steve Bannon’s world:

And so I think we are in a crisis of the underpinnings of capitalism, and on top of that we’re now, I believe, at the beginning stages of a global war against Islamic fascism.

The entire profile is exceptionally interesting. The explicit call-out of contemporary Russian (Hyperborean) Eurasianism is especially note-worthy, since it distances Bannon from the ideological core of the Alt-Right.

ADDED: More here.

Hard to remember last seeing so much geopolitical insight being packed into a single, simple sentence:

The CIA is institutionally quite close with the Saudis right now, and has been in charge of their covert war against Assad.

Quote note (#312)

Williamson:

Republicans should designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, based simply on the weight of the evidence. But if they’re feeling a little bit mean — and why not? — they should wait until the Democrats have put Keith Ellison in charge of their party to do it.

(It just keeps getting better.)

The Islamic Vortex (Note-12)

Everything is proceeding as foreseen.

“They say all Sunnis are Daesh, but it isn’t true,” said former truck driver Jassem Nouri, 50. Nouri has spent the past two years living on a building site in the northeast of Salahuddin province; his home, in the Sunni village of Salman Beg, is just six miles away, but the Shiite militias that ejected the Islamic State from the area over two years ago have refused to allow any of the residents to return. Last year, his two sons, former university students, were detained by masked men in unmarked uniforms and accused of working with the Islamic State. Nouri insists that they are innocent, but he has not been able to secure their release. […] “The one thing that is breaking my heart is that my sons are in jail and I can’t prove their innocence,” he said. “If this government doesn’t change, there will never be security and stability in Iraq, just an endless blind revenge.”

No one has the slightest (realistic) idea what equilibrium would even look like. The Sunni-Shia war has no end short of utter exhaustion. For everyone else, staying mostly out of it — and keeping it out — has to be the basic principle of strategic wisdom.

ADDED: From The Economist — “Horrifyingly, although home to only 5% of the world’s population, in 2014 the Arab world accounted for 45% of the world’s terrorism, 68% of its battle-related deaths, 47% of its internally displaced and 58% of its refugees.”

The Islamic Vortex (Note-11)

Could the escalating Sunni-Shia War (intensified by the fracking revolution) take out Saudi Arabia?

(Cold Western indifference would be nice.)

It’s a clear sign of how seriously Radical Islam is taken by the foreign policy establishments of civilized states. Roughly, it’s treated as a biological weapon, to be used against real adversaries (you know, those who are not mere hill people). That’s not going to change much anytime soon, however much one might want it to.

NRx and the Alt-Right (1, 2).
Exit as white flight. The submission option. Organizational intelligence. An epic NRx discussion (starts here). New blogs. Nihilism (the book). The (most recent) weekly round, plus outliers.

What Hillary did (1, 2, 3, 4). Some of the best Alt-Right commentary (1, 2, 3), and some of the most dismal (1, 2, 3, 4). Some additional primers (1, 2, 3, 4). The Amerika take (1, 2, 3). The SPLC does its thing. The Alt-Right discussed by Stefan Molyneux and Vox Day (video). Taylor and Spencer profiles. In the lion’s den. Pepe is the GOP now. Scraps (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). WN distress by the numbers.

Trumpenführer panic report (1, 2, 3, 4). This one is actually well done. A death rattle from mainstream media. Trumpism transcends Trump. Who are these people? The baby-eating story was exaggerated. Deep history of the Muslim thing. A Trump miscellany (1, 2, 3).

Distinguishing the left from progressivism. (From the Left) “There is no such thing as neoliberalism.” How libertarians lost it. Wisconsin goes to shit.

Death by pooling (plus).

How democracy dies in France, taking the EU with it. Germany’s agony. An open letter to the Ukraine. Project Fear was bullshit (1, 2). The Islamic nightmare (1, 2, 3).

Death by Facebook. Soc-media Islamophobia is awful. Troll terror at Time (1, 2). My sides (plus). News management. Survival through anonymity (plus). The Cuck (seriously). Haidt is always worth listening to.

Leftist Race Politics never stops. Edgy. “If [HR departments] really cared, they would take a leaf from agricultural geneticists.” The campus race-revolution marches on. Quaklity liberal torture on race (1, 2). The dysgenic motor. This is more interesting than it looks. Patrilineages. Deep bias. Race realism (1, 2). Cargo cult pedagogy. Why HBD?

Going Sicilian on Zika. Fun with DNA.

Caesium clocks. Physics is broken (?).

China pushes the limits (relevant). Cryptic. This couldn’t possibly be dangerous. Bad bots.

Limits of falsifiability.
