I join J.G. Michael of Parallax Views for an Interview on Alexander Dugin's Foundations of Geopolitics. We discuss Dugin's core ideas in the light of Russian invasion of Ukraine, aggressive Russian messianic politics, the role of space in Dugin's geopolitical eschatology as constant in Russian history of foreign conquest, the notion of Russian universalism, Martin Heidegger and much more.
KT answers to moist poignant and interesting comments and questions. The subjects covered range from the idea of total knowledge or "world image", sustainable development, Club of Rome founding document "Predicament of Mankind" to discussion of whether there's only one Globalization, the reach of Russian influence in alt media, nature of "alternative research" and its inherent nihilism, video game nature of "alt media" covering the war in Syria, mirage of geopolitics, etc.
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.
You can't have a good scrap without our old friend A.D. commenting on it. In this video we interpret some of Dugin's musings on the significance of the Charlottesville event and the significant presence of his own American followers in the thick of the action.
In this video we return to the problem faking reality by media, this time around the alternative ones. We'll analyze the CIA document "Yugoslavia Transformed", that is: the assessment on future of Yugoslavia, written and submitted on 18th October 1990, and referenced by exceptionally dumb (or devious) contributor on former main Duginist outpost Katehon. We demonstrate how collaborating documents can be used as "proofs" for the thesis in fact contradicting their content, on condition that reader doesn't actually read them, but take the authors "reference" as sufficient in itself.
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.
In this video we further address the problem of somewhat sadomasochist nature of "alternative narratives" about international politics that are based on geopolitical interpretation and uncritical enmity towards the West - coming, ironically, almost entirely from the Westerners themselves.
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.
In this video we demonstrate how Trump's "drain the swamp" punch line punched the lights out of two demagogues.
We analyze portions of the interview with Alexander Dugin by Alex Jones and Dugin's on the fly explanation of Trump's "failure" to "drain the swamp". The obvious conclusion is that when you find common ground to be swampy, you're about to lose it quickly. Further, we point out that Dugin is promoting a peculiar kind of Globalism and demonstrate how he manipulates the Western alt media consumers into assimilating his own worldview.
