The Shape of Things to Come

“Things to Come” was, in the end, quite optimistic. The actual shape of things to come seems to leave not much room for optimism. Movies, fact and fiction, have covered much that is related to what we can expect.

The historical Zombie eruptions have involved a less brain dead variety than the current, but that is no guarantee that they were more deadly.

Memory Hole

Twitter disallows many statements, as does Facebook. Youtube removes videos and whole channels. Amazon removes books. Where there is not simple deletion of information there can be guiding notes attached to historical and seemingly neutral scientific information.


Wikipedia has removed a page on the “lab leak hypothesis”, which now redirects to a “misinformation” page: Discussion of the decision can be found here.

This event is discussed here by Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying:

COVID lab leak Wikipedia page censored by “fact checkers” (from Livestream #68)

Miriam Webster is adapting to Newspeak in real time, changing the meaning of “racism” to suit the zombie horde.

Archived pages, of all things, are being decorated with “fact checks”. Will the deletion of archives follow soon?

An entry on a simple statistical test needs modification after an election, for some reason: Benford’s Law Declared Illegal by the Left.

One is nostalgic for the old days when it was just claimed that only the official media could legally possess Wikileaked emails.

One interesting possibility is that this is explained as a stage of the zombification process, where the brain begins to liquefy and barriers between the associative and analytical lobes start to break down. If it were only so simple.

“Herd Immunity” went through a fairly radical shift in meaning, at least for a while.

Some of the memory hole mechanism is visible.

Another Soviet comparison by David Mikics at Tablet:

Stalin’s most celebrated victims were themselves used to humiliation and self-abasement. As Robert Conquest writes in his indispensable book The Great Terror, “Their surrender was not a single and exceptional act in their careers, but the culmination of a whole series of submissions to the Party that they knew to be ‘objectively’ false.” Conquest tells of a former member of the Soviet Supreme Court who was informed by an interrogator, “Well, the Party demands that you, as a Bolshevik, confess that you are an English spy.” The man responded: “If the Party demands it, I confess.”

It is hard to imagine that the authors of the present confessions know anything to be ‘objectively’ false.

“Our harassment training makes clear that what matters is how an act makes the victims feel,” wrote the Times staffers. Even if McNeil “didn’t act maliciously or with hateful intent,” they added, that doesn’t matter, since “intent is irrelevant.”

Another difference. In the good old days intent mattered, it was the star of the show both as sincere sacrifice to the party and as the falsity to confess to. In the Zombie version without brains intent can play no role.

The Doublethinkers

Dmitry Orlov suggests something similar to the collapse of the USSR is imminent but it seems that thought patterns are still becoming more those of the USSR itself, witnessed by Scott Aaronson and now Natan Sharansky: The Doublethinkers.

The Kolmogorov option

In the wake of the Jame Damore kerfuffle Scott Aaronson speaks about speaking out, without speaking out:

The Kolmogorov option

And then thinks better of the latter:
