Alexander Dugin's 4th political theory is a convenient cover for quite prosaic - albeit apocalyptic - political project, outlined to the best of his abilities in the Foundations of Geopolitics. However, there's much more to it than that, even as an afterthought. In this video we'll demonstrate how Dugin imagines that postmodernity should be beaten by postmodernity and consequences thereof. The most notable one is the subversion and further dissolution of those pre-modern principles he supposedly cherishes. As always, we'll take a maximum advantage of his own words to demonstrate just what inherent destructive potential his ideas conceal.
Also, we point out the persistent mistake on behalf of Dugin's mainstream critics of not getting him seriously and affirming that he builds his destructive project on quite correct assessment of our historical situation. Something they do at their own peril.
As original ideas of Dugin's globalist project become more and more accessible to anglo-phone public, we hear objections that his totalitarian blueprint laid out in no uncertain terms in the book "Foundations of Geopolitics" is something he now discarded. Well, to refute this objection, we'll let Dugin himself demolish it in one of his recent interviews.
In the second part of the series on Alexander Dugin's Foundations of Geopolitics we analyze the political program of creating the "Empire of empires" and why it excels in being the ultimate exercise in nihilism, taking the lead into contest for the most ominous globalization project of our times, although it could very well remain just an image in the head of its author and his followers.
We commence the analysis of the core political and strategic ideas of Alexander Dugin as laid out in his main work “Foundations of Geopolitics – Geopolitical Future of Russia”, based on a close reading of the text. In this segment we explain mainly the proverbial foundations or “the principal duality” of Dugin’s megalomaniac eschatology falsely posing as, and today curiously popular, political science stressing the role of geography. This is the first close reading analysis of the foundational neo-Eurasianist text in the English language. Give it a look, we guarantee you won’t like it if you are busy cheering for Russia to defeat the “globalists”. But maybe, if you are displaying some symptoms of Duginitis chronica in its early stages, it could just make you re-think what you’re getting yourself into.
