Egor Kholmogorov contemplates the meaning and future of Russia in the orchard next to the Tsiolkovsky Museum. Donate to him: ***
Some typical views driving about Volokolamsk. This is a monument to the Bus Driver. The T-34 monument, a hallmark of small Russian towns that were heavily afflicted by the war.
I know CDG Airport has a poor reputation, but could I just point out that it's rather beautiful? Also Air France is great. They are cheap and they hav
In my autistic drive for completion - at any rate from the end 2016, when I shared my impressions of London (Portsmouth, Oxford) in this blog's first ever Open Thread before repatriating to Russia - the next couple of posts will be about my two visits to Blighty since. Why London? Well, I need to... Read More
The past weekend saw the ninth Geek Picnic. This is an annual Russian science/sci-fi festival where technologists and futurists come together to hear lectures presentations, see tech exhibits, and do other futuristic things. I decided to come to this one to see what's it's all about. Some of you may have followed my Twitter thread... Read More
VDNKh is best known for its eponymous Soviet-era exhibitions center (which features the famous worker and kolkhoz woman statue) and the Museum of Cosmonautics. While I recommend visiting both, I was more amused by the concentrated SWPL in the VDNKh, which is the area where I'll be working from October. As in the rest of... Read More
On May 6, there was a big free speech march through Central London jointly organized by the Democratic Football Lads Alliance and Veterans Against Terrorism. Many of the big names in the British Alt Lite were attending, so I decided to show up myself. (I appear in the sidelines a few times in this video... Read More
Here's what you don't need: Belgians and 2 cm of snow. Well, no reason not to explore Brussels in the
As some of you are aware, last week I was traveling in Saint-Petersburg. I went upon the invitation of a local politics club, but decided I stay several days to explore the city. I haven't been to SPB since 2002, so this doubled as an opportunity to see how the northern capital has changed in... Read More
(1) Boomtown - Buildings are going up over the place. There is an economic confidence that Brexit has left unperturbed. This is reflected in housing prices - even though th
This October, I will be following the "advice" of some of my most ardent critics and literally "going back to Russia." I'm joking, of course. I don't care for those trolls. That argument was always self-refuting because I had left in Russia in the early 1990s as a dependent. My parents had left because the... 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.
