Via John Derbyshire. It’s called The 10,000 Year Explosion. Based on the title and some of their recent papers, you can probably guess what it’s about.

I had intended to have my next post be on Edward Luttwak’s Coup Detat, with the appendix of coups from 1945 to 1978 in Excel form for number crunchers to mess around with, but I haven’t gotten around writing it out, or even deciding how to categorize some of the factions behind the coups.
