Here's A Little Article By Aleksandr Dugin, To Whom Vladimir Putin Pays A Lot Of Attention
Dugin is a National Bolshevist - anti-Globalist, unless it's from the Russian point of view, in which case he's in favor of global hegemony... a cross between Leninism and neo-liberalism...
“The Russia-NATO talks have taken the confrontation to a new level. Russia is firmly insisting on a formal refusal to accept the post-Soviet countries into NATO; the West persists in its position, offering in exchange something unnecessary and unimportant, or at least of secondary importance…
Moscow’s position in this case – and this is a new and important element – is not reactive and not passive, but offensive.
NATO has been actively pressuring us for 30 years, including during the whole of Putin’s 20-year period. But only now is Russia ripe to challenge this for real.
In big politics, only force decides everything. “For real” means “by force.
Moscow is taking a serious swing. And now it is impossible to take a step back, otherwise what for was it to take a swing at? We know from gangster movies and from the business of the 90s, and even from street fights, that to pull out a gun (knife, machine gun) and not shoot is almost suicide. Whoever goes for aggravation must realize that if he doesn’t, he will. We are exactly at this point now.
The unipolar world is finished. Contrary to the desperation of Biden and world elites to make one last attempt to save globalism and American hegemony – and this is the meaning of Biden’s campaign slogan (Bild BackBetter – “Rebuild Everything Again and Better”, i.e. “Back to the unipolar 90s”), or Klaus Schwab’s thesis at the Davos forum (Great Reset) – historical time is not reversible: Russia and China already represent two independent poles, solidarity on the major world problems. This means that multipolarity is established here and now.
In history, however, the change of the global world order, alas, is often carried out through wars. Without them, those who lose in no way agree to recognize voluntarily the obvious change. It is a kind of reality check…
Apparently, we still have to do what we should have done – and didn’t do – in 2014. Yes, the starting conditions are much worse, but better late than never. Nobody counts on “never” anymore. The Russia-NATO meeting showed that clearly. Both sides are ready to escalate, and to give in now means to lose irreversibly. The Kremlin clearly does not intend to do this. But the West simply cannot. That would not just be a loss of face, but an admission of defeat.
As usual, the Russians took a long time to get going, so now they must rush ahead.
Let us look into the world which is about to become a reality.
There will be no nuclear war. The stakes are too small for Washington to risk the total annihilation of humanity.
In principle, the outlined sanctions and the final demonization of Russia, the severing of its ties with Europe and the attempt to isolate it completely, exhausts the program of response. The West hopes, if not to prevent what is coming, then to manage in its favor its consequences. This will not be easy. But it is better to have the West as a full-fledged adversary than as a patron or ally (it will end – as it ended so many times in the history of Byzantium and Russia – in betrayal). The West’s claim to be the measure of universal values has failed. Even the West itself no longer believes in this. And other nations and civilizations do not have to share its historical pessimism and the onset of total perversion. Every nation has its own Logos. The Logos of the West has disintegrated into dust…
So, concretely: how will events unfold, if they do – rather than freeze into another nauseating pause?
Eastern Ukraine goes to Novorossia all the way. This is non-negotiable. It is a conscious part of the East Slavic world, always has been, contrary to the feral Russophobic propaganda. Novorossiya – the entire Left Bank + Odessa – has long been waiting for this to come true.
The new state should be immediately accepted into the Eastern Slavic Union, together with Russia and Belarus.
This project will require a new Idea.
Its main features are not difficult to see: Slavic Renaissance (tradition, identity, historical self-consciousness) + social justice that is — right-wing politics + left-wing economy, exactly what everyone is waiting for. We will lose the sixth column immediately after the first shot is fired, we won’t have to convince anyone — it will self-destruct from terror. Liberalism and Westernism will disappear, everything else – both left-wing and right-wing – will remain. This is where the task is to unite them in the name of the great goal. And so it will be.
The sanctions the West is threatening will finish the rest – you can’t think of a better tool to purge traitors and foreign agents. Only the patriots who have nowhere to go and nowhere to run will survive. And it will be their hour – our hour – delayed for seven sluggish years.
The question of Western Ukraine is open. We will hardly be welcomed there. But if we liberate the Ruthenians and transfer some of Kolomoisky’s structures to individual Kiev tycoons, (which are in the East, and therefore will be assimilated from the beginning of the campaign), something can be worked out. However, this will require not only military, but also ideological efforts. If something is taken away, something must be given. With the East of Ukraine everything is clear. With the West not everything, or rather nothing at all is clear.
Here lies the main problem – we can push the border much further to the west and bring our 20 million people back into their native Eastern Slavonic context. But American military bases are unacceptable for us, even on the right bank. However, once the world changes, new horizons and opportunities will open themselves. The main thing is to get down to business.
Although the main direction is west, it is important to differentiate our steps.
In parallel with the East Slavic Union, it is necessary to make the Eurasian Union a reality. The attempted uprising in Kazakhstan and the Taliban factor in Afghanistan reminded us that things are shaky in Central Asia too. We must act decisively there as well. Our friends and allies must quickly decide to what extent they are real friends. And to act accordingly, rather than to appoint Russophobes to ministerial posts. This will have to be paid for seriously.
We have a great ally – China, which has yet to go through something symmetrical with Taiwan and with the protection of territorial integrity – in Xinjiang, Tibet and in the border zones. Its support is key. The West is fighting a war on two fronts — with us, and with the Chinese. This is a unique opportunity – we are a military colossus, China is an economic colossus. Together we are comparable to the West and even outweigh it. And most importantly: they, in the West, are the past, we are the future.
It is important to involve other allies, especially Iran and Pakistan (we are about to have summits with these countries). In addition, it is necessary to secure at least the neutrality of Turkey and India, which is almost guaranteed.
And then we can start….
We are best at direct action. We get lost and confused in negotiations and time is running out. After the first decisive move is made, we will find ourselves in a new reality with new laws.
We’ll figure it out there.” https://anti-empire.com/alexander-dugin-why-a-war-will-be-good-for-russia/
He appears to have made a few miscalculations, not the least of which is that the Ukrainian people would fight back as hard as the Georgians and Chechnyans…
From an alt-right source - not the nicest people around, but some of them can read Russian, and boy, do they have Dugin nailed down:
”Aleksandr Gelyevich Dugin, the man behind “Duginism,” is a Russian political strategist with ties to some of the most powerful people in Russia; various oligarchs, billionaires, Kremlinites, military men, and even Putin himself. This includes people such as Sergey Naryshkin (Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service), Igor Rodionov (Defence Minister), and Gennadiy Seleznyov (Chairman of the State Duma). Dugin’s father was a colonel-general of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU), which is essentially the Russian militaries’ own KGB; a foreign-intelligence agency. GRU was originally established in the USSR by Leon Trotsky’s deputy. Because Dugin’s father was an extremely high ranking glowie, Dugin was born into spookdom; the number of influential KGB agents that Dugin has collaborated with is too long to list: http://archive.vn/iOvCT.
Wikipedia will tell you that Dugin is a Fascist. He is 100%, unequivocally not a Fascist. Dugin was an early member of the Communist ‘National Bolshevik’ (NazBol) party and assisted in the party’s organization. That should be a huge red flag to any of you with even a basic understanding of the scourge that is Bolshevism and its hellish influence on European people – I’m sure I don’t need to elaborate on that. The Russian NazBol party was founded by Eduard Limonov, who (fun fact) most likely worked as a homosexual male prostitute while in the US working as a Communist overseas agent. In 2001, Dugin founded his own ‘Eurasia Party.’ Four years later he founded the Eurasian Youth Union, which is banned in Ukraine due to the party’s destruction of a Ukrainian exhibition documenting the Holodomor (the genocide of Ukrainians by the USSR, 1932 – 1933). There are a few common misconceptions about Dugin and Duginism in the West, largely propagated by the lying mainstream media, but also by clueless (or subversive?) nationalists spreading disinformation. These include claims that Dugin is…
• A Fascist.
• Pro-Christian (specifically Orthodox).
• Traditionalist (capital-T Traditionalism of René Guenon and Julius Evola).
• Somehow beneficial to White nationalists within the West.
These claims are not just “slightly untrue” or an “easy mistake to make,” they’re quite literally a polar inversion of the truth. All of the above can generally be debunked in under ten minutes via a quick web search, or by reading Dugin’s own words, so you should be quite skeptical of anyone making any of these claims. At best they are clueless (which is forgivable, due to the vast quantities of disinformation on Dugin) or, at worst, they are malevolent liars.
In addition to being deeply involved with high ranking elites of Russian secret services, military, government, and an assortment of internationalist billionaires, you can also find Dugin cropping up in the most bizarre and unexpected places. See the montage below, featuring some renowned “right-wing” characters. Please bear in mind that I’m not claiming that all of the people listed below are “Duginists,” merely demonstrating that Dugin’s tentacles span far and wide, to debunk the farcical claim that he has limited influence or no influence whatsoever.
Furthermore, I don’t believe that everyone who parrots Dugin’s rhetoric should be accused of being a “Duginist,” as it is entirely possible to unwittingly absorb an ideology via osmosis, which is, in fact, the most common way that people absorb ideology. Consider the modern shitlib leftoids of today: Do any of them understand that their ideas on race and gender were created by a bunch of literal-CIA-and-KGB-agent Marxists who were funded by David Rockefeller and friends (Frankfurt & New School)? Of course not! They don’t understand where their idiotic beliefs originate and most are never informed of the true origin of their delusional worldview. What’s the point in subverting somebody if you tell them that you’re subverting them?
It may only take a handful of influential individuals to inject a subversive ideology into a movement, political party, or even a nation-state, in order to steer it in the wrong direction. I’m sure you’re well aware of COINTELPRO, the influence of “think tanks” such as the Council on Foreign Relations, or even the Rothschild family. A few charismatic men can have a big impact.
3. Dugin’s Literary Works
Dugin has written a hell of a lot of things over the years. Though this piece will feature quotes from a variety of his books, articles, and blog posts, the two texts that are key to understanding Dugin’s political theories and strategies are ‘The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia’ (‘FoG,’ 1997) and ‘The Fourth Political Theory’ (‘4PT,’ 2009).
Foundations of Geopolitics is by far Dugin’s most important work. Dugin himself describes it as an “indispensable guide for all those who make decisions in the most important spheres of Russian political life – for politicians, entrepreneurs, economists, bankers, diplomats, analysts, political scientists, and so on.” In FoG, Dugin outlines his ‘Neo-Eurasianist’ geopolitical strategy, which includes a multitude of instructions on how to subvert, manipulate, and conquer various countries in order to create a Eurasianist empire.
As Dugin said, the book is highly influential among Russian elites, including the military, who used it as a textbook in their Academy of the General Staff. It was co-drafted by Colonel-General Leonid Ivashov, head of the International Department of the Russian Ministry of Defence. After writing FoG, Dugin was hired as a guest lecturer by the military, to explain his geopolitical Neo-Eurasianist theory to Russian officers and the likes. Seleznyov, a former Russian State Duma speaker and a buddy of Dugin, urged that FoG should be incorporated into the Russian school curriculum.
The most important thing about FoG is that it is, essentially, straight-to-the-point and completely “mask-off,” which you’ll see when we get into the contents of the book in the following sections. Fourth Political Theory, on the other hand, couldn’t be more different. You may have seen 4PT being praised by various nationalists in the West, as it has been heavily marketed to Westerners by Arktos Media (which publishes and translates Dugin’s work for Western consumption) and other “New Right” or “Alt-Right” influencers. 4PT is not designed for Russian consumption, but to be read by hapless Western nationalists. Dugin’s aim with 4PT is to ideologically subvert nationalists in the West, making them more malleable and likely to assist (passively or actively) him in achieving the political goals he laid out in Foundations of Geopolitics. 4PT is overflowing with psychobabble, verbose gobbledygook, and complete bastardizations of various historic right-wing thinkers — particularly notable is the manner in which Dugin mutated and completely inverted the Traditionalist School of thought. 4PT will be quoted throughout this piece, but for an idea of the sort of nonsense included in the book, chapter 13, “Gender in the Fourth Political Theory,” is devoted to arguing in favor of a-sexual transgenderism. Behind the shoddy and transparent mask of phony “Traditionalism,” nothing separates Dugin’s Fourth Political Theory from the extant ideology of the New World Order* that he claims to oppose.
* Often labeled as “Neo-Liberalism,” though I personally believe that this label is inaccurate and insufficient.
FoG is Dugin’s political strategy document, in which he outlines highly detailed plans on how to create a Eurasian empire by subverting foreign nations, it was written for Eurasianists, to benefit Eurasianists. 4PT is an implementation of FoG’s political strategy, in that 4PT is a subversive book written for Westerners and disseminated in the West, to channel Western nationalism towards Eurasianist ends.
FoG = Mask Off = Duginism-For-Me (For Eurasianists) = Influential among elites of Russia.
4PT = Mask On = Duginism-For-Thee (For the enemies/subjects of Eurasianists) = Promoted in the West by the Alt-Right, New Right, and Identitarians (specifically European Identitarians).
4. Eurasianism and National Bolshevism
The basic idea of Eurasianism, which is an ideology/movement dating back to the early 1900s, is that Russia belongs to neither Europe nor Asia and, therefore, must expand to conquer both. The basic aim of Eurasianism is the creation of a single Eurasian superstate/empire; an expanded USSR. To use a trite pop-culture reference, yes, just like ‘1984.’ Eurasianism wasn’t necessarily synonymous with Bolshevism but there was a lot of crossover between the two. Not all Eurasianists were Bolsheviks but all Bolsheviks were Eurasianists, this includes Bolsheviks in Europe as well as those in Russia. Eurasianism has been endorsed by a whole range of disreputable characters throughout history, and by that I mean our mortal enemies. Eurasianism has also been endorsed by a handful of characters generally regarded as reputable, such as Francis Parker Yockey. Eurasianism should be recognized as a form of Russian imperialism and malevolent globalism; it’s certainly, nothing that a nationalist should want to be involved in, though you don’t necessarily have to be a “nationalist” to oppose ultra-globalist hegemonies.
5. The Foundations of Geopolitics: What is Neo-Eurasianism (“Duginism”)?
Though ‘Duginism’ (aka Neo-Eurasianism) is now a “refined” form of subversion (it’s still quite obvious if you know what to look for), fortunately, it didn’t start that way. FoG paints a crystal clear picture of Dugin’s geopolitical agenda and the nature of Neo-Eurasianism in general.
The defining aspect of Dugin’s Neo-Eurasianism is that it is, at its core, an oppositional ideology, built upon hatred of the “unipolarity” of the “Atlanticist” West, specifically the United States.
• Dugin, Foundations of Geopolitics, 1997 http://archive.vn/mh0oi
“The new Eurasian empire will be constructed on the fundamental principle of the common enemy: the rejection of Atlanticism, strategic control of the USA”
• Dugin, Foundations of Eurasianism, 2015 http://archive.vn/PD0mc
“An important aspect of the Eurasian worldview is an absolute denial of Western civilization. In the opinion of the Eurasians, the West with its ideology of liberalism is an absolute evil.”
• Dugin, Lecture on Eurasianism at Johns Hopkins University http://archive.vn/3p4WZ
“Eurasia and our space, the heartland (Russia), remain the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution”
In FoG, Dugin describes his Neo-Eurasianism as “the battle for the world rule of Russians,” stating that “the maximum task is the ‘Finlandization’ of all of Europe.”
Finlandization is when a powerful entity (usually a country but not necessarily) forces a less powerful country to abide by its laws while allowing the less powerful country to maintain pseudo-independence and its own political system (within the confines of its master’s laws). You could describe the dominance of the New World Order globalists (UN, EU, World Bank, IMF, etc.) over our own countries as a form of Finlandization on a global scale. Finlandization is similar to the creation of vassal states, but unlike a vassal relationship, the small state does not benefit at all.
FoG sets numerous “tasks” to be completed by Russia, Eurasianists, or Dugin’s globalist friends around the world. Remember, this book was written in 1997.
“Tasks in the United States:”
• Russia should use its special forces within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism. For instance, provoke “Afro-American racists.” Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics.”
“Tasks in the Middle East and Central Asia:”
• The book stresses the “continental Russian-Islamic alliance” which lies “at the foundation of anti-Atlanticist strategy”. The alliance is based on the “traditional character of Russian and Islamic civilization”.
• Iran is a key ally. The book uses the term “Moscow-Tehran axis“.
• Armenia has a special role and will serve as a “strategic base” and it is necessary to create “the [subsidiary] axis Moscow-Erevan-Teheran”. Armenians “are an Aryan people … [like] the Iranians and the Kurds”.
• Azerbaijan could be “split up” or given to Iran.
• Georgia should be dismembered. Abkhazia and “United Ossetia” (which includes Georgia’s South Ossetia) will be incorporated into Russia. Georgia’s independent policies are unacceptable.
• Russia needs to create “geopolitical shocks” within Turkey. These can be achieved by employing Kurds, Armenians and other minorities.
• The book regards the Caucasus as a Russian territory, including “the eastern and northern shores of the Caspian (the territories of Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan)” and Central Asia (mentioning Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kirghistan and Tajikistan).
“Tasks in Europe:”
• Germany should be offered the de facto political dominance over most Protestant and Catholic states located within Central and Eastern Europe. Kaliningrad oblast could be given back to Germany. The book uses the term a “Moscow-Berlin axis“. [Note that this is the same aim as old German NazBols and modern Russian NazBols]
• France should be encouraged to form a “Franco-German bloc” with Germany. Both countries have a “firm anti-Atlanticist tradition”.
• United Kingdom should be cut off from Europe [Brexit]
• Finland should be absorbed into Russia. Southern Finland will be combined with the Republic of Karelia and northern Finland will be “donated to Murmansk Oblast”.
• Estonia should be given to Germany’s sphere of influence.
• Latvia and Lithuania should be given a “special status” in the Eurasian-Russian sphere.
• Poland should be granted a “special status” in the Eurasian sphere.
• Romania, Macedonia, “Serbian Bosnia” and Greece – “orthodox collectivist East” – will unite with the “Moscow the Third Rome” and reject the “rational-individualistic West”.
• Ukraine should be annexed by Russia because “Ukraine as a state has no geopolitical meaning, no particular cultural import or universal significance, no geographic uniqueness, no ethnic exclusiveness, its certain territorial ambitions represents an enormous danger for all of Eurasia and, without resolving the Ukrainian problem, it is in general senseless to speak about continental politics”. Ukraine should not be allowed to remain independent, unless it is cordon sanitaire, which would be inadmissible.” https://thuletide.wordpress.com/2020/04/08/aleksandr-dugin-part-1/
There’s lots more, and I’m sure, with the site’s focus on blood and race and so forth and so on, ad nauseam, people may find parts of the article offensive, but by God, they do have Dugin’s number.
