Twitter cuts (#9)

With no idea how long this is going to last …


… I’m seizing it as an opportunity to grab some stuff.

Depersonalization is a goal worth striving for, with the corollary that good sense should be appreciated in itself. These remarks are exceptionally sensible:


(It probably doesn’t need spelling out that this tweet-storm benefits greatly from extreme surgical decontextualization.)

    I hearby second Nicholas Pell’s nomination for Mike Anissimov as “Most Improved NRx of 2014”.

    Provided he’s dropped the Idaho thing, that is, ’cause that was just embarrassing. But we can all give Mike another chance, right?

    I’d be happy to ignore the guy if he didn’t have Athrelon and Konkvistador trapped in his lame blog.

    The problem with dumb people is that sometimes they have smart friends.

    can you link me to this Idaho thing thats been referenced a lot i cant find it and having established an Idaho beech head decades ago Im curious. Ill say this its one of the most beautiful places in the world and extremely conservative – even if a few chamber of commerce types think its “too great for hate”

    The Idaho thing is a good idea in principle. The problems are in the execution.

    What a loser, right? Who does things without being told to do them? Man, caring about different things than I do is so low status, eh guys?

    Mike is facsimile of a man. His twitter drama just reinforces that.

    Very childish behaviour from one of NRx’s main figures; instead of approaching the community as the scholarly endeavour it should be, he approaches it as a popular movement of some sort. I think more Americans need to go serve in the armed forces, which is probably the best way to mature beyond petty matters…All things come into perspective after getting mortared and shot at.

    It has something to do with exposure to violence. I have not been in the army, but I went from being nerdy to hanging out with the wrong people after high school and being exposed to a wide variety of negative human circumstance and behaviors. After this direct experience with the metagame of crime in my city my behavior completely changed.

    If you’re alienated from violence or at least some level of conflict something is “off”, once you’re exposed to it you snap back into place. Regular people have this violence and aggression with them; you can see it in the way they talk. People who are willing to be violent are “willing” but are otherwise somewhat internally more at peace if you know what I mean.

    Exactly more at peace for the world has less fears with no solution.

    Y.Ilan Reply:

    I agree, it is almost entirely about exposure to high-stress, dangerously violent environments. Most modern Westerners live lives completely sheltered from the inherent dangers of our ancestral environment, and I believe that such violence is extremely important in understanding one’s place in the world, and how the world really works. It is important to intuitively know that humans are smart, violent apes.

    @R Well, decide for yourself but it’s quite obvious that one was a real man and the other wasn’t. Nobody is a real man unless they’ve served in the military and done the hard yards like I have. Civilians should be permitted to exist but I’m not sure I could live with the shame if I was one of them.

    “Civilians should be permitted to exist …” — let no one say that bleeding-heart liberalism is denied a voice here.

    Lucian Reply:

    Keeping in mind that I would be the noble of the sword giving permission, not just mediating an otherworldly Reich of ends, I don’t see anything liberal about it. Kindness can be haughty and aristocratic in the best sense too.

    Those Tweets above the most intelligent things in awhile.

    Turn against is a strong word, there’s endless high school drama, with the head drama queen.
