I am a Russian repatriate, blogger, and intelligence researcher.

My primary blog is at The Unz Review [feed], where I write about Russia, geopolitics, HBD, IQ, and futurism. Start here if you’re new to my work.

Here is a more complete archive of my best posts, as well as my travel writing and reviews (books, films, games).

You can keep in touch via email, on social networks (see top right), and my newsletter.

My Russian language blog is at akarlin.ru [feed].


If you like my content, and want me to produce more of it, consider donating or supporting me on Patreon.
