Lot of incisive commentary out there about how liberalism undermines institutions by failing to constrain female behavior, betrays women by tricking them into barren careerism, etc.

Much less commentary about how liberalism fails women by turning men into betas...
Was talking to a young in-law whose engagement plans are being destroyed ostensibly because of a few peccadillos on the girl's part, but really because he is naive enough to judge those peccadillos by the standards of male behavior
He keeps saying "But she did X, if I did X to one of my mates, they'd never talk to me again"

Elsewhere: "I open up to her and share my vulnerabilities, and she doesn't reciprocate"

Everywhere, the assumption that women are just men who can bench press less

Has anyone written anything good on evolution in leaf arrangements?

Walking by jacaranda, flamboyant, wild mango, and leopard trees marvelling at the similar tiny bipinnate arrangements, wondering why other trees tile the plane with big spatulate leaves

One of the most beautiful things happening on the planet at the moment.

Oranians pay no tax, receive no government services, have no crime, and are enjoying rapid population growth despite being located in a desert.
You're not going to believe this, but the private sector is better at providing all these things

Of course, you could claim that Orania is just a particularly stripped down government, but this just underscores the point

The hypertrophied government in Johannesburg can't keep the roads paved, the lights on, the criminals off the streets

While Drake was plundering Spanish loot, fighting cannibals, and braving the Strait of Magellan, he took time to paint and draw. Dinners were accompanied by orchestra. An officer hanged for mutiny dabbled in Greek and Hebrew.
Frog memes are not invented, but continually rediscovered
I gifted my copy of Hemingway's "Men at War", so I'm hoping someone can remind me: which South Asian port was taken when the Americans arrived to find the port guns unattended, the flagship loitering near shore?

Spanish indolence crops up again and again in naval histories

1\ Solid article on why the southern hemisphere is stormier than the north

Can the author get to the end without slipping in some politically convenient fictions about climate change?

Let's see...

carbonbrief.org/guest-post-why…
2\ We are told that the southern hemisphere is getting stormier, while in the northern hemisphere "change is negligible"

That's studiously imprecise phrasing. Negligible in which direction?

The answer matters, because 90% of humans live in the northern hemisphere
3\ Let's click through to the cited study, which looked at changes in "Eddy Kinetic Energy"

You can see that the big increases in storm energy are expected to be around latitude 50 South, where nobody lives

Meanwhile, less storminess where all of humanity is:

What's fun about "societal" justifications for subsidizing daycare is that if you accept the utilitarian logic, you should also support eradicating the biggest cause of declining fertility: female education
The incongruities in "existential threat" discourse are pretty funny

Sea level will rise an inch, so we have to destroy the family and reimagine capitalism etc.

The population of the West will halve this century, and we know exactly why...but you daren't mention it
The case against education isn't that women should be barefoot and illiterate, like the Taliban. It's that 16 years of schooling is about 10 too many for most people, particularly those whose biology requires they get started on childbearing in their 20s
