Dugin is part of the program meant to nazify both the Empire and the "resistance" against the Empire by re-branding and repackaging fascism
Dugin: "The globalists remind me of the black periods of Soviet history - Stalin`s style of lie."
A. Dugin, whether the person or a network, has produced mountains of writing and "directives." And in this large amount, which, in my view, required a work of dozens of people, it is not easy to find a clear, bottom line, more explicit or sincere statement of its identifiable actual political program and character. However, this little piece on "Indo-Europeans" by A. Dugin presents just that. If fascism is the very antithesis of political equality, the most radical opposition to equality, then that's what Dugin's program, which lifts its argument from Nietzsche, is:
December 28, 2016 Author: Alexander Dugin Translator: Jafe Arnold... Today, as the fate of the Indo-European peoples and cultures is becoming all the more problematic with each passing day ...The Indo-European peoples are of the patriarchal family. They did not humiliate women, nor did they consider them to be objects or slaves, but they did not give them free will. Indo-European patriarchy originated from the principle that the sky is the father and the earth is the mother. This does not belittle earth or women, but the vertical is obvious....The priests and king corresponded to the sky, the warriors to the air, and the peasants to the land. The Indo-Europeans’ whole system of values was founded on this, and thus it was for millennia. All types of Indo-European religions, societies, cultures, myths, tales, historical chronicles, and economic systems were built on this trifunctional, patriarchal model. This means that being an Indo-European means belonging to the society of priests, warriors, and laborers.“But how does this relate to merchants, traders, and usurers?,” you ask. In no way. Such kinds were despised in Indo-European societies. Capitalism appeared only once Indo-European values began to be rapidly forgotten, degraded, and degenerate. Indo-European societies also did not know equality, a sign of degeneration. They did not know feminism or sodomy, by which differed the matriarchal lands and non-Indo-European cults such as the cult of Cybele.European modernity, which abolished religion, faith in the King and the Heavenly Father, the castes, the sacred understanding of the world, and essentially patriarchy, was the beginning of the fall of Indo-European civilization. Capitalism, materialism, egalitarianism, and economism are all the revenge of those societies against which the Indo-Europeans waged war, subjugated, and strove to remedy, which composed the essence of all Indo-European peoples’ history. Modernity was the end of Indo-European civilization. It naturally corresponds to the nadir. This is not an abstraction, for it affects us in the most direct ways.All the best, you’ve been watching Dugin’s Guideline on the deep crisis of Indo-European civilization.No compromises will help us. Either we will disappear and be dissolved, or we must restore our Indo-European civilization in its entirety, with all of its values, ways, and metaphysics. If we want to preserve ourselves as a people, as an Indo-European people, we must wake up and be reborn in contrast to all that has been taken for granted in the world of modernity. To hell with this world of modernity." [my emphases in the text]
In a word, Dugin's, "New Resistance's," the Hydra's directive is: To Hell. To Hell with democracy and all the progress of the last four hundred years (see the last sentence from the piece above). That's fascism 2.0.
Stylistically, but also politically, the above by Dugin is also written as the new fascist anti-manifest in relation to the Communist Manifest of 1848, where it reads:
The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.
Freeman and slave, patrician and plebeian, lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman, in a word, oppressor and oppressed, stood in constant opposition to one another, carried on an uninterrupted, now hidden, now open fight, a fight that each time ended, either in a revolutionary reconstitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes.
In the earlier epochs of history, we find almost everywhere a complicated arrangement of society into various orders, a manifold gradation of social rank. In ancient Rome we have patricians, knights, plebeians, slaves; in the Middle Ages, feudal lords, vassals, guild-masters, journeymen, apprentices, serfs; in almost all of these classes, again, subordinate gradations.
The modern bourgeois society that has sprouted from the ruins of feudal society has not done away with class antagonisms. It has but established new classes, new conditions of oppression, new forms of struggle in place of the old ones. … Hitherto, every form of society has been based, as we have already seen, on the antagonism of oppressing and oppressed classes. But in order to oppress a class, certain conditions must be assured to it under which it can, at least, continue its slavish existence.
Most of human history has been under sway of not only oppression and exploitation, but of slavery the forms of which have been fluctuating. The most fundamental break with human slavery (by no way thorough or perfect, but still most thorough breaking), took place in the modern times. That's what all the reactionaries, including Nietzsche and ending up with the Nazis 1.0 and 2.0, are riling against and want to roll back.
In Russia today, there are 4 main anti-communist and anti-Soviet political forces: 1) the oligarchic party of the Kremlin and Putin, 2) the liberal, pro-West "opposition," 3) various right-wing nationalists and supposed nationalists, where also fall Dugin and Prosvirnin, and 4) a potentially separatist Islam-based, "conservative" wave. After Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and Putin, the left is resembling a group of shades caught and stored safely somewhere in the limbo. As much as the above all hate the former Communists, nearly all of them harbor secret or not so secret any more sympathies for fascists and Russian traitors and collaborators with the Nazis.
The special moment when Vanity Fair almost sounds like Dugin who also calls the Russian "pre-modern archaic, subjectless people."
Dugin on Satan: Postmodernism, the will to nothing, is "pure Satanism." The Russians are stuck even before modernity; the Russians are "principally" pre-modern--for the Russians lack the will and rational judgment. The Russians "lack subjectivity." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quxWhp5y23E
What about this one--Dugin: The "swamp" is a black magic mirror, the universal hegemony, which is Satan. And "to win Satan, we must deal with it" ... for only on the basis of "deconstructing Satan we can build multiple alternatives." Only when you face Satan, you'll come face to face with Jesus. from 17:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcRsKumFlas
Aleksandr Dugin in 2007: "There are no more opponents of Putin's course and, if there are, they are mentally ill and need to be sent off for clinical examination. Putin is everywhere, Putin is everything, Putin is absolute, and Putin is indispensable" – was voted number two in flattery by readers of Kommersant.
General Reshetnikov (general behind Putin & Dugin): the USSR was lifeless; Novorossiya is dead b/c it was too Soviet
