Sentences (#100)

Cathedral money:

the reason why inflation measurement and reporting has become so controversial is that it is “less a measure of purchasing power (and therefore a financial tool), and increasingly a process of affecting macro-economic policies (and therefore a policy lever).”

(The whole post is crucial, still more so the report.)

Twitter cuts (#133)

Putting this here to go meta.

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

Twitter cuts (#127)

This is true, and worth more thought than it’s received so far.

It just keeps coming.

There have been suggestions it’s a parody, but my guess is that they really are this demented. Hard as it is to imagine, it doesn’t sound like mad barking to them. (They’ve been spoiled.)

Quote note (#346)

Barghest:

We [neoreactionaries] are born of these intellectuals ourselves. We come from the same social classes, we attended the same institutions for education, and we have many of the same shared cultural touchstones. We’re not so far away; we fit in well to Progressive society. Hence the crippling Progressive paranoia currently cutting free speech out of our culture: make truth your enemy and you never sleep soundly again.

(Much else of interest at the link, despite the sadly typical ‘transcendence’ and ‘community’ silliness.)

ADDED: Cowen comments.

This is what something in the process of Internet-based disintermediation looks like.

Twitter Cut

@Outsideness has been zapped by Twitter without any explanation (as of yet). It’s probably a useful hint that it’s past time to look more diligently for a censorship-resistant platform.

This prompted me to give minds.com a look. It’s still in beta, and will probably take a while to get used to, but there’s an @Outsideness account now if anyone’s tempted to experiment with exodus.

I’ve had trouble getting through to Gab.ai (might be a VPN / China Internet issue).

We’ll have Urbit eventually.

ADDED: I haven’t sought out a fight with Twitter, but had I done so it’s hard to imagine there could have been a way to hurt it more than getting Outsideness banned in this way. There’s simply no possible case to be made that this is about ‘abuse’. There has been nothing remotely like harassment in the history of the account. It’s naked thought control. The platform is an undisguised leftist ideological operation. First it collapses down to a partisan bubble with zero credibility beyond its own constituency. Then it dies.

ADDED: Twitter @Outsideness restored this morning. No explanation (or communication from Twitter of any kind) about what just happened. The word that comes to mind for this kind of arbitrary aggressive behavior is abuse.

Moron bites (#22)

Prominent opponent of white nationalism chalked-in to speak at Berkeley, so (of course) this happens.

The Left, as pretty much everyone now recognizes, is a fascism factory.

ADDED: Sailer’s coverage. “Seriously, what % of the political violence in the U.S. over the last 18 months has been from Trump’s side of the spectrum and what % from the respectable side? […] 5% vs. 95%? […] 2% vs. 98%? […] I resist the 1% vs. 99% ratio as improbable (although, admittedly, possible).”
