The US has a problem. It has too many statues of evil white men, such as the Confederate generals, the Founding Fathers, Columbus, and even the first governor of Russian Alaska, Alexander Baranov. You may not personally consider it a problem, but plenty of your compatriots do, and they're usually more influential than you. Sucks... Read More
From a world-historical perspective, the bald syphilitic gave Germany a second chance at European (and world) domination. Which they screwed up, to be sure... but they couldn't have even made a go of it otherwise. By nullifying half of Russia's potential population even just within its current borders, and the vast bulk of its potential... Read More
Newspaper "Signal", Nov 13, 1917: Russia is ruled by a lunatic! We demand an investigation into the mental state of the "autocrat" Lenin! Reps of Army Committee of South-West Front said he's a madman after a conversation with him. … Save Russia from him … Or he will doom us!

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.
