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

Sentences (#64)

We are in over our heads in racism here.

So many fronts, so little time.

Some context:

“The Amazing Atheist” … is a disease, and if left untreated, he and his fans may kill any hope that atheism can make the world a better place.

Brexit panic report (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). Brexit analysis (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). In crisis, opportunity (plus Becker reference), also. Contagion (plus), and its limits (note). Domestic political fallout. Jim comments (1, 2). Zizek and Walt comment. “A Brexit would deprive the Dutch of an important ally in their desire to reduce the European Union to a simple business venture. But this extremely narrow conception of the purpose of pan-European cooperation is exactly why the EU might, contrary to most popular opinion, benefit from a Brexit. The United Kingdom didn’t join and stay inside the EU to make something of it, but rather, to prevent others from making something of it.”

Quote note (#248)

At the risk of falling into a temporary ‘all-gone, all the time’ rut here, there’s this:

… Ishmael Bey, a former assistant Nation [of Islam] minister, told me that years ago he’d heard from a top official that headquarters was flirting with “a white church in L.A.” Initially, Farrakhan never mentioned Scientology in public. Instead, he cryptically alluded to the “study” of “a technology” that would help his people. His caution made sense: after all, the Nation was explicitly conceived as a black separatist organization and a repudiation of Christianity, which Nation leader and prophet Elijah Muhammad derided as “the slave master’s religion.” Farrakhan himself has called white people “a race of devils” and the Nation teaches that the apocalypse will involve a UFO, or “mother plane,” that will eradicate all Caucasians. […] However, there are some striking theological overlaps that might help explain how Farrakhan came to adopt a religion invented by a white man. There is, of course, the attachment to science fiction: Scientologists believe in an alien dictator, Xenu; the Nation holds that the white race was created by a mad scientist named Yakub. More significantly, though, at the core of both religions is a never-ending pursuit of a better self. In the case of Scientology, that best self is “clear” of residual traumas buried in the subconscious. In the Nation, that self is free of the hang-ups of white culture that black people have internalized to their detriment. Scientology, Farrakhan seems to believe, provides a new path toward black empowerment. “I’ve found something in the teaching of Dianetics, of Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, that I saw could bring up from the depth of our subconscious mind things that we would prefer to lie dormant,” he said to his Chicago congregation in early summer. “How could I see something that valuable and know the hurt and sickness of my people and not offer it to them?” …

Quote note (#235)

The implausible telos of progressive race politics:

It is certainly possible to get to a place where jobs at Facebook are allocated by global demographics, with the requisite number of Aboriginals and so forth. South Africa, with BEE, is rapidly approaching this point. If you want to make all the present programmers at Facebook racists, it’s an excellent way to proceed, but I really don’t think it will lead to your uniform, perfect and beige dream world. (Not sure if you’re familiar with present conditions in the Rainbow Nation.)

The idea that the progressive race religion is something that can be productively reasoned about ended for many of us at precisely the moment NRx began. Still, trying — or pretending to try — to argue optimistically about it could (perhaps) remain worthwhile as an experiment, even without the slightest realistic chance that it could work.

Again, I’m not here to get you to agree with me; I know that’s impossible. What I’m curious [about] is whether you can at least agree to disagree.

That doesn’t seem much more realistic (so it’s probably an experiment — or cultural tactic — of some different kind.)

ADDED: “Of course, it’s incredibly important to keep diversity issues at the forefront of everyone’s awareness …”

Diamond and Silk

D&S00

More socio-ideological scrambling. Camille Paglia describes them as a ‘revelation‘, linking to this one. (They’ve done a bunch.) Their latest is on the Chicago disorder. Their David Duke commentary is also a thing of wonder.

Here they are with the Donald, and doing Fox.

This is Saturday popcorn material, but it’s not short of discussion potential. Their lopsided double act is a piece of artistry (as the Fox piece makes clear).

“Choo-choo that train to glory!”

They have to be driving more than a few people nuts.

Chaos Patch (#103)

(Open thread + links)

What is Neoreaction? (Snarl.) The bargain. The way out is forward. Death by Utopianism. Lifeboat ethics (also). Distributed blind conspiracy. Institutional capture. A failed fitness test. Social media as a model of collapse. Quite a bit more persuasion needed. New(ish) blog of the week. The weekly round.

Evil is conserved. Ingroups and outgroups. Zizek, rightist. Leftism for little children. Embrace the collapse (video). “Perhaps more dramatically than any other voting block, un­married women — comprising as they do other liberal-voting groups including young women and women of color — lean left. Way left.” Could millennials turn to the dark side? The outgroup are conspiracy nuts. Post-racial morality (on steroids). The progressive Hitler.

Saudi oil economics, and military challenges (1, 2). Realism on Syria (plus some relevant nervousness). Jinnah’s dead dreams. Ruinous modernity. Xi Jinping tightens the media leash. Chinese migration sanity. Lessons from Venezuela. SA in crisis. Rolling migration catastrophe in Europe. The backlash is the real problem (Hollande agrees). Dissent spreads (1, 2). Camp of the Saints tours (1, 2). The meaning of Rotherham. Morbid delusions. Nazi cult tourist destination.

Brexit chatter heats up (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8). Historical timeline here. The best-case outcome.

“The bottom line is simple. The great wave of commodity and industrial deflation now sweeping through the world economy is the bastard offspring of the debt binge that was enabled by the central banks over the last two decades. Yet they now pretend that this massive headwind to growth originated in some exogenous force that must be counted with even more of the same monetary intrusion.” Keynesian error. Cash suppression. Oil glut hurts pirates. Robot job-hunting.

Trumpenführer panic report (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), with additional fingerpointing. About that nuclear business. Uh oh (+), plus. Violent rhetoric. Why? The GOP is broken, seriously. Neocons flee. Game theory for the GOPe (note 1, 2). The torture. Trump the monster, miracle, and new Charlemagne (also bad for the Jews). The democratic comedy. Unhinged media (exhibit). Preference cascade. Revenge all around. The China angle. On to higher things? End of an era.

Twitter’s war against the right (plus, also). The troll tamers. The Ace strategy.

Garett Jones talks to Stefan Molyneux (video). Pygmies just became a little awkward. Mainstream HBD against ‘pathological altruism’. The canceled Derb speech. Diversity and its discontents. The case for blind hiring. Ferguson effect. Warped reality. Love is overrated. Only obeying orders. Updated oaths.

“Tech product cycles are mutually reinforcing interactions between platforms and applications. New platforms enable new applications, which in turn make the new platforms more valuable, creating a positive feedback loop. Smaller, offshoot tech cycles happen all the time, but every once in a while — historically, about every 10 to 15 years — major new cycles begin that completely reshape the computing landscape.” Latest steps in robotics. The real promise of VR. Dopaminergic headphones. Tech politics, subterfuge, and insecurity.

The cosmic web. A big rip timeframe. A Fermi Paradox for the multiverse. Serpentization on Enceladus. Secret sentience.

Apocalypse Corner. On AI panic (and some relevant PR). A New Doomsday Argument.
22nd century blues. Hyperbolic Joy.

Schizoid psychiatry. Inconvenient worlds. Zero stroke. A numerical oddity. The absence of sense.
