Alexandr Dugin: "World's Most Dangerous Philosopher"? (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 09/01/19 10:20 am)

Alexander Dugin has been called the world's most dangerous philosopher. But is this the case for the Empire dominated by extreme liberal capitalists, or for humanity as a whole?

Dugin has also been called the Rasputin of Putin, which of course is historical nonsense. Furthermore, it is not worth talking about Russia fueling instability for the Empire. For three quarters of a century the Empire has fueled instability in the Soviet Empire and then in Russia. Prior to 1991 this may have been understandable, but there is no excuse for the creation of Al-Qaeda and the support given to the extremist Islamic terrorists in the Caucasus. After the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact, Russia could have been integrated into cooperation with the West, as Berlusconi dreamt of doing, but the Empire favored only the Russian leaders shamefully reduced to making commercials for American firms such as Pizza Hut.

If Russia is now repaying with the same coin, no one should complain.

Alexander Dugin has elaborated a Fourth Political Theory, after Liberalism, Communism and Fascism:

"For the liberals, identity is something to be destroyed. But destroying identity means destroying the people [I would say the nation]: from this populism is born, which is the people's attempt to become a people [again I would say a nation]:"

For the extreme liberal capitalists, the people are the union of the rich with silly personal rights and the poor only required to pay and pay and pay. Such individuals are stripped of nationality, tradition, history, religion and even sex/gender (no more she or he); they are only a neuter consumer.

Such extreme ideology begins to be rejected and a reaction is born which the elites call populism, in an attempt to give it a negative meaning and to try to take back the obedient herd back to the slaughterhouse.

It is not a question of foreign policy in the sense of shifting alliances.  Rather, it is a question of restoring national independence with dignity within its own traditions.

JE comments:  Without having read his books, I sense that Dugin comes from the Russocentric mold:  Pan-Slavism if you will.  Is the Dugin philosophy radically different from that of Dostoevsky or Solzhenitsyn?
