So it's been a few days since the Syria Strikes, everyone and his dog have thrown in their two cents, and there has been a set of confusing and contradictory reactions from US officials and pretty much everyone else involved in this saga. The more the contradictions pile on, the less clear the picture becomes.... Read More
I didn't really invent this meme, as Patrick Armstrong once credited me; there were a few disjointed mentions of it there and there from before 2011. That said, I do think I did more than than anyone else to popularize it. Anyhow, the term Putin Derangement Syndrome has finally gone mainstream, with Rolling Stone's Matt... Read More
Trump is a virtuoso at playing the media. He mentioned he'd ban the burning of the American flag - the media rushed to show Leftists burning the American flag. He promoted the observation that many hate crimes were hoaxes - soon after, it emerged that the author of the threats against Jewish centers was a... Read More
Russian human rights lawyer Matthew Tszen speculates: I still think it was organized largely after the fact by a panicking Soros, but this is an interesting theory. It would tie in well with my speculations that a great deal of fireworks - both literal and figurative - were painstakingly choreographed to go off on Hillary... Read More
The entire rigmarole around "fake news" is very curiously timed. So far as I'm aware the general "theory" behind it was primarily developed in the past year or so by Peter Pomerantsev and Edward Lucas under the aegis of the Legatum Institute. Edward Lucas is a Russophobe even by the standards of Economist journalists (suffice... Read More
Over the years I have studiously avoided commentary on MH17 because of the banal fact that I am not an expert on plane crash official Dutch inquiry that has just released its findings says that it was downed by a Buk missile that came from rebel-controlled territory. Many serious people have come to other conclusions,... Read More
Tiny Iceland once astounded the world by being the only county to send its banksters to jail and repudiating the debts taken on by the citizenry they hoodwinked. As a result, there were no significant drops in living standards, whereas Greece, which adopted the opposite policies, got stuck in a grinding depression that continues to... Read More
The front page of The Guardian on the first day of Panama Leaks: $2 billion!? Very impressive. Though admittedly, a rather disappointing find after more than a decade's worth of searching for Putin's $200 billion stash. But still, a curious choice of whom to focus on, considering the minor detail that Putin's name doesn't appear... Read More
Soon after calling for ISIS to murder Russian aviators and their families, the Paris Attacks sent them into a confused tizzy, and now the Maidanists are going from proposing an alliance with ISIS to condemning them as pawns of Khuylo, Тhe Darkest One, and The God of Svidomy Ukrainians... who is otherwise known to normal...

I am too tired right now to compile all this into something more elegant than a point-by-point rant, so here goes: Some preliminary thoughts on the latest terrorist attacks that have claimed 128+ lives in Paris. (1) The usual cucks have wasted no time in making political hay of this tragedy Ezra Klein: "This tragedy... Read More
Yesterday I was asked by a friend if I planned to write anything about the ongoing saga over Halloween costumes at Yale. I said probably not because what would be the point? The whole affair is so bizarre that parody is redundant. Besides, plenty of other people have ably commented on it, and if you... Read More
One constant theme in the immigration "debate" is that the world of Mutti Merkel and Sweden Yes! are just too stupid and/or WEIRD (capitalized) to get that it probably isn't such a great idea to import millions of 80 IQ Third Worlders with a penchant for cultural enrichment. In fantasyland, they will help pay European... Read More
One of the more frustrating misconceptions Westerners have about Russia - including even many of the more well meaning ones - is that Putin is some kind of nationalist. He is not. Nor was he ever. It appeared he might be sort of leaning in that direction in the heady days after Crimea's return into... Read More

About Anatoly Karlin

I am a blogger, thinker, and businessman in the SF Bay Area. I’m originally from Russia, spent many years in Britain, and studied at U.C. Berkeley.

One of my tenets is that ideologies tend to suck. As such, I hesitate about attaching labels to myself. That said, if it’s really necessary, I suppose “liberal-conservative neoreactionary” would be close enough.

Though I consider myself part of the Orthodox Church, my philosophy and spiritual views are more influenced by digital physics, Gnosticism, and Russian cosmism than anything specifically Judeo-Christian.
