Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and the Six Senate Party Defectors. A new indy band out of Arizona? Nope -- it's the new episode of C-SPAN's podcast "The Weekly." First, some fun facts: • Of the six most recent Senate independents, Kyrsten Sinema is only the second from a state not in New England. • The Senate now has three Independents serving at the same time -- the most ever. • And Sinema is the first independent or third-party Senator who is a woman. Since 1890 and before Sen. Kyrsten Sinema in December 2022, 21 Senators changed parties during their Senate service. In "The Weekly," we remember six of those 21 Senators... the six most recent – the ones who defected on C-SPAN. Find C-SPAN's "The Weekly" wherever you get podcasts. Learn more about your ad choices.

Formosa Files is delighted to announce a very special episode in collaboration with the University of Southern California's East Asian Studies Center and the New Books Network! The USC's Li-ping Chen recently interviewed Andrew D. Morris, the author of a 2022 book (of the same name as this episode's title) on the defector pilots who risked it all to fly their planes (mostly military jets, but one famous case was a commercial airliner) to Taiwan from China. Each case is fascinating; some are even shocking. Many thanks to Li-ping Chen and Andrew D. Morris. Links to Morris' book and more info on the New Books Network can be found at www.formosafiles.com.

Defections from the People's Republic of China (PRC) were an important part of the narrative of the Republic of China (ROC) in Taiwan during the Cold War, but their stories have previously barely been told, less still examined, in English. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s, the ROC government paid much special attention to these anti-communist heroes (fangong yishi). Their choices to leave behind the turmoil of the PRC were a propaganda coup for the Nationalist one-party state in Taiwan, proving the superiority of the "Free China" that they had created there.  In Defectors from the PRC to Taiwan, 1960-1989: The Anti-Communist Righteous Warriors (Routledge, 2022), Morris looks at the stories behind these headlines, what the defectors understood about the ROC before they arrived, and how they dealt with the reality of their post-defection lives in Taiwan. He also looks at how these dramatic individual histories of migration were understood to prove essential differences between the two regimes, while at the same time showing important continuities between the two Chinese states. A valuable resource for students and scholars of 20th century China and Taiwan, and of the Cold War and its impact in Asia. Andrew D. Morris is Professor of History at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, and studies the modern histories of Taiwan and China.

Defections from the People's Republic of China (PRC) were an important part of the narrative of the Republic of China (ROC) in Taiwan during the Cold War, but their stories have previously barely been told, less still examined, in English. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s, the ROC government paid much special attention to these anti-communist heroes (fangong yishi). Their choices to leave behind the turmoil of the PRC were a propaganda coup for the Nationalist one-party state in Taiwan, proving the superiority of the "Free China" that they had created there.  In Defectors from the PRC to Taiwan, 1960-1989: The Anti-Communist Righteous Warriors (Routledge, 2022), Morris looks at the stories behind these headlines, what the defectors understood about the ROC before they arrived, and how they dealt with the reality of their post-defection lives in Taiwan. He also looks at how these dramatic individual histories of migration were understood to prove essential differences between the two regimes, while at the same time showing important continuities between the two Chinese states. A valuable resource for students and scholars of 20th century China and Taiwan, and of the Cold War and its impact in Asia. Andrew D.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: The Pavlov Strategy, published by sarahconstantinon the LessWrong. Epistemic Status: Common knowledge, just not to me The Evolution of Trust is a deceptively friendly little interactive game. Near the end, there's a “sandbox” evolutionary game theory simulator. It's pretty flexible. You can do quick experiments in it without writing code. I highly recommend playing around. One of the things that surprised me was a strategy the game calls Simpleton, also known in the literature as Pavlov. In certain conditions, it works pretty well — even better than tit-for-tat or tit-for-tat with forgiveness. Let's set the framework first. You have a Prisoner's dilemma type game. If both parties cooperate, they each get +2 points. If one cooperates and the other defects, the defector gets +3 points and the cooperator gets -1 point If both defect, both get 0 points. This game is iterated — you're randomly assigned to a partner and you play many rounds. Longer rounds reward more cooperative strategies; shorter rounds reward more defection. It's also evolutionary — you have a proportion of bots each playing their strategies, and after each round, the bots with the most points replicate and the bots with the least points die out. Successful strategies will tend to reproduce while unsuccessful ones die out. In other words, this is the Darwin Game. Finally, it's stochastic — there's a small probability that any bot will make a mistake and cooperate or defect at random. Now, how does Pavlov work? Pavlov starts off cooperating. If the other player cooperates with Pavlov, Pavlov keeps doing whatever it's doing, even if it was a mistake; if the other player defects, Pavlov switches its behavior, even if it was a mistake. In other words, Pavlov: cooperates when you cooperate with it, except by mistake “pushes boundaries” and keeps defecting when you cooperate, until you retaliate “concedes when punished” and cooperates after a defect/defect result “retaliates against unprovoked aggression”, defecting if you defect on it while it cooperates. If there's any randomness, Pavlov is better at cooperating with itself than Tit-For-Tat. One accidental defection and two Tit-For-Tats are stuck in an eternal defect cycle, while Pavlov's forgive each other and wind up back in a cooperate/cooperate pattern. Moreover, Pavlov can exploit CooperateBot (if it defects by accident, it will keep greedily defecting against the hapless CooperateBot, while Tit-For-Tat will not) but still exerts some pressure against DefectBot (defecting against it half the time, compared to Tit-For-Tat's consistent defection.) The interesting thing is that Pavlov can beat Tit-For-Tat or Tit-for-Tat-with-Forgiveness in a wide variety of scenarios. If there are only Pavlov and Tit-For-Tat bots, Tit-For-Tat has to start out outnumbering Pavlov quite significantly in order to win. The same is true for a population of Pavlov and Tit-For-Tat-With-Forgiveness. It doesn't change if we add in some Cooperators or Defectors either. Why? Compared to Tit-For-Tat, Pavlov cooperates better with itself. If two Tit-For-Tat bots are paired, and one of them accidentally defects, they'll be stuck in a mutual defection equilibrium. However, if one Pavlov bot accidentally defects against its clone, we'll see C/D -> D/D -> C->C which recovers a mutual-cooperation equilibrium and picks up more points. Compared to Tit-For-Tat-With-Forgiveness, Pavlov cooperates worse with itself (it takes longer to recover from mistakes) but it “exploits” TFTWF's patience better. If Pavlov accidentally defects against TFTWF, the result is D/C -> D/C -> D/D -> C/D -> D/D -> C/C, which leaves Pavlov with a net gain of 1 point per turn, (over the first five turns before a cooperative equilibrium) compared to TFTWF's 1/5 point per turn. If TFTWF accidentally defects against Pavl...

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Contrite Strategies and The Need For Standards, published by sarahconstantin on the AI Alignment Forum. Epistemic Status: Confident There's a really interesting paper from 1996 called The Logic of Contrition, which I'll summarize here. In it, the authors identify a strategy called “Contrite Tit For Tat”, which does better than either Pavlov or Generous Tit For Tat in Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma. In Contrite Tit For Tat, the player doesn't only look at what he and the other player played on the last term, but also another variable, the standing of the players, which can be good or bad. If Bob defected on Alice last round but Alice was in good standing, then Bob's standing switches to bad, and Alice defects against Bob. If Bob defected on Alice last round but Alice was in bad standing, then Bob's standing stays good, and Alice cooperates with Bob. If Bob cooperated with Alice last round, Bob keeps his good standing, and Alice cooperates. This allows two Contrite Tit For Tat players to recover quickly from accidental defections without defecting against each other forever; D/C -> C/D -> C/C But, unlike Pavlov, it consistently resists the “always defect” strategy D/C -> D/D -> D/D -> D/D . Like TFT (Tit For Tat) and unlike Pavlov and gTFT (Generous Tit For Tat), cTFT (Contrite Tit For Tat) can invade a population of all Defectors. A related contrite strategy is Remorse. Remorse cooperates only if it is in bad standing, or if both players cooperated in the previous round. In other words, Remorse is more aggressive; unlike cTFT, it can attack cooperators. Against the strategy “always cooperate”, cTFT always cooperates but Remorse alternates cooperating and defecting: C/C -> C/D -> C/C -> C/D . And Remorse defends effectively against defectors: D/C -> D/D -> D/D -> D/D. But if one Remorse accidentally defects against another, recovery is more difficult: C/D -> D/C -> D/D -> C/D -> . If the Prisoner's Dilemma is repeated a large but finite number of times, cTFT is an evolutionarily stable state in the sense that you can't do better for yourself when playing against a cTFT player through doing anything that deviates from what cTFT would recommend. This implies that no other strategy can successfully invade a population of all cTFT's. REMORSE can sometimes be invaded by strategies better at cooperating with themselves, while Pavlov can sometimes be invaded by Defectors, depending on the payoff matrix; but for all Prisoner's Dilemma payoff matrices, cTFT resists invasion. Defector and a similar strategy called Grim Trigger (if a player ever defects on you, keep defecting forever) are evolutionarily stable, but not good outcomes — they result in much lower scores for everyone in the population than TFT or its variants. By contrast, a whole population that adopts cTFT, gTFT, Pavlov, or Remorse on average gets the payoff from cooperating each round. The bottom line is, adding “contrition” to TFT makes it quite a bit better, and allows it to keep pace with Pavlov in exploiting TFT's, while doing better than Pavlov at exploiting Defectors. This is no longer true if we add noise in the perception of good or bad standing; contrite strategies, like TFT, can get stuck defecting against each other if they erroneously perceive bad standing. The moral of the story is that there's a game-theoretic advantage to not only having reciprocity (TFT) but standards (cTFT), and in fact reciprocity alone is not enough to outperform strategies like Pavlov which don't map well to human moral maxims. What do I mean by standards? There's a difference between saying “Behavior X is better than behavior Y” and saying “Behavior Y is unacceptable.” The concept of “unacceptable” behavior functions like the concept of “standing” in the game theory paper. If I do something “unacceptable” and you respond in some ...

About the book: The book compiles for the first time corroborative primary sources in English, Russian, French, German, Finnish, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish. The result is the most comprehensive list of Soviet intelligence officer defectors to date. Through the eyes of those officers, it shows the fluctuations in the Soviet recruitment and vetting of personnel for sensitive national security positions, corresponding with fluctuations in the stability of the Soviet government. It also shows the evolution of Soviet threat perceptions and the development of the “main enemy” concept in the Soviet national security system. About the Speaker: Dr. Kevin P. Riehle is an associate professor at the National Intelligence University. He has spent over 28 years in the U.S. government as a counterintelligence analyst studying foreign intelligence services. He received a Ph.D. in War Studies from King's College London, an MS in Strategic Intelligence from the Joint Military Intelligence College, and a BA in Russian and Political Science from Brigham Young University. He has written on a variety of intelligence and counterintelligence topics, focusing on the history of Soviet and Eastern Bloc intelligence services.
