My poor Medium column, how I have neglected you.

I have abandoned you for my Substack, which is Lorenzo from Oz. It is here.

I have written there on lots of things.

In July 2022, I wrote on matters Trans. (https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/people-were-a-weird-mob)

I also wrote on information dispersal and disorientation with regard to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Then I wrote on Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/whats-a-bot-or-few-million-between)

In August 2022, I returned to the Russo-Ukrainian War, in particular talking about why Russian autocracies have been one-trick regimes and keep pushing a strategy that keeps failing.

I also wrote on why ritual is such a pervasive feature of human societies, including the ritual elections of totalitarian regimes.

In September 2022, I wrote about the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and the power and value of monarchy.

In November 2022, I presaged the Worshipping the Future series of essays by me that are being published on Helen Dale’s Substack.

I also wrote about the economics (as distinct from the Economics) of migration.

In December 2022, I wrote about the Worshipping the Future series starting.

I also wrote about Social Justice as a social strategy: specifically a status-through-norm-dominance strategy.

In January 2023, I wrote about Marxism as prophecy and a model for political action.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/prophecy-and-political-action)

I also wrote about how relationship to means of production is a dreadful basis for defining class.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/priests-and-warriors)

I wrote about that remarkable polymath, Ibn Khaldun.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/who-was-ibn-khaldun)

I discussed humans as the niche-creating species.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/the-niche-creating-species)

I discussed why the future is not what it used to be.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/the-future-by-default)

In February 2023, I wrote about how it is a mistake to over-rate the role of Marxism in current trends in Post-Enlightenment Progressivism (aka “wokery”).
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/overdoing-marxism)

I also wrote about the problems of the US mainstream media, the collapse of the previous business model, and how it is creates a “go broke, go woke” tendency.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/go-broke-go-woke)

I wrote about the connections between Zen thought and the flow states discussed by modern psychology.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/zen-and-the-art-of-flow)

I wrote about self-deception and various socially corrosive factors.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/self-deception-and-social-corrosion)

In March 2023, I wrote about basic patterns of human societies.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/basic-patterns-of-human-societies)

I also critiqued the concept of race, advanced the fiscal-sink hypothesis (that governments tend to under-police localities that are net revenue drains) and pointed out adverse incentives in “racial” matters.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/race-and-other-annoyances)

I discussed the need and difficulty of integrating evidence across disciplines.
(https://lorenzofromoz.substack.com/p/wrestling-with-ideas)

So far in April 2023, I have written a two-part essay, applying the evolutionary lens to economics. The first part is here:

The second part is here:

Why have I neglected you, my Medium column? Well, I pay to belong to Medium, but I earn money from Substack. And Medium censors, while Substack does not.

I have not sworn off you, my Medium column. But you may become just a portico to my Substack.
