We shall never surrender | Terrorismes, guérillas, stratégie et autres activités humaines
"Si les terroristes s’en prennent à des civils plutôt qu’à nos unités régulières, c’est qu’ils sont intrinsèquement moins puissants. Ils compensent ce déséquilibre par des innovations tactiques, parfois des évolutions techniques, mais ils demeurent moins forts que nous. Et parce qu’ils sont parfaitement conscients de ce rapport de forces, ils pratiquent une stratégie indirecte : ils s’en prennent à la population pour, par ricochet, toucher l’Etat. C’est pour cette raison que la lutte contre le terrorisme ne peut être comparée à la lutte contre la violence routière, et qu’il est d’une rare bêtise de ne voir dans le terrorisme qu’un crime comme un autre. Le terrorisme est une démarche politique, et le contre-terrorisme, de même, ne vise pas tant à sauver des vies qu’à protéger l’Etat. Les contre-terroristes ne sont pas des sauveteurs, même s’ils éprouvent une immense satisfaction à sauver des vies, cela va sans dire."

Morocco’s king just named a new prime minister, in case you forgot who’s in charge - The Washington Post
"The royal discharge of Benkirane speaks to the regime’s deep control of the political system, which is intentionally fragmented into “divided structures of contestation,” or SOCs. In divided SOCs, the monarchy allows only select political opponents to take part in the political system while excluding others. These limited spheres of contestation shape government-opposition relations and dictate the rules of the game for the opposition within the formal political system. The resulting recycling of political parties and coalitions is necessary to maintain the smokescreen of political participation."

[1202.0425] Comparing network covers using mutual information
"In network science, researchers often use mutual information to understand the difference between network partitions produced by community detection methods. Here we extend the use of mutual information to covers, that is, the cases where a node can belong to more than one module. In our proposed solution, the underlying stochastic process used to compare partitions is extended to deal with covers, and the random variables of the new process are simply fed into the usual definition of mutual information. With partitions, our extended process behaves exactly as the conventional approach for partitions, and thus, the mutual information values obtained are the same. We also describe how to perform sampling and do error estimation for our extended process, as both are necessary steps for a practical application of this measure. The stochastic process that we define here is not only applicable to networks, but can also be used to compare more general set-to-set binary relations."

Book Review: Seeing Like A State | Slate Star Codex
"Why did all of these schemes fail? And more importantly, why were they celebrated, rewarded, and continued, even when the fact of their failure became too obvious to ignore? Scott gives a two part answer.

The first part of the story is High Modernism, an aesthetic taste masquerading as a scientific philosophy. The High Modernists claimed to be about figuring out the most efficient and high-tech way of doing things, but most of them knew little relevant math or science and were basically just LARPing being rational by placing things in evenly-spaced rectangular grids.

But the High Modernists were pawns in service of a deeper motive: the centralized state wanted the world to be “legible”, ie arranged in a way that made it easy to monitor and control. An intact forest might be more productive than an evenly-spaced rectangular grid of Norway spruce, but it was harder to legislate rules for, or assess taxes on."
