As explained on this blog since hostilities began, Russian foreign policy is being guided by the outspoken fascist Aleksandr Dugin. The son of a GRU (Russian military intelligence) General, Dugin wrote the military textbook now studied at Russian academies of war. The Foundations of Geopolitics: Russias Geopolitical Future, is a throwback to the German (and Nazi) concept of geopolitik, dictating that Russia is naturally a land-based empire, and in order to defeat the maritime powers of the United States and England, must conquer virtually the entire Eurasian continent, from Lisbon to Vladivostok.
To underscore how determined these fascists to create a new order, in October last year, Dugin, his mentor Alain de Benoist of France, and another new right writer/philosopher spoke at the The End of the Present World conference in London. As in the days of the Soviet Union, the political and economic domination of Eurasia is the explicit aim of the Kremlin. In this quest for hegemony, Moscow has several allies, including regional freedom parties, as well as the hacktivist group, Anonymous.

Be careful. Plenty of FReepers admire Putin. They love him. They don’t consider him Christ, but they do think he’s Christlike. Plus he’s a swell guy.
I don’t know anything about Dugin, but Benoist is a good guy who has dedicated his life to preserving Western civilization.
The critique of Anglo-Saxon culture referenced here is not a Nazi idea, but is very old and currently a part of mainstream European thought. The German ruling class today subscribe to similar, if less dramatically stated beliefs about US/UK culture.
The theory goes something like that England was founded by pirates and criminals who were on the run from the law back in Europe and that this tendency resurfaces in opportunistic power/money grabs by their descendents. Implicit is the rejection of Anglo-Saxon moralism — “war to end all wars” and all that — as a cover for selfish interests.
It’s important to understand that virtually all educated people from non-English speaking countries view Anglo-Saxon culture in this way. Whatever our views are, we should remember that few people really buy into liberal(in the broad sense) ideology outside of the English speaking world. Germany and Japan’s conformist, consensus based politics and economies are the perfect example of this.
To me, that’s another argument against foreign adventures to “spread democracy.” Even Western Europe is further from our values than most Americans realize, let alone places like Iraq and Syria.
In that sense, America is truly exceptional.
The EU has over three times the population and even more times the money than Russia, as well as nuclear weapons. It’s a nauseating spectacle to see them cowering and crying to us for help from a “bully” that is smaller than them.
I would tell these Euro sissies to grow up and not expect any rescue from the pirates.
It’s not pushing traffic - I get no money from this - but more like keeping people informed on currents that normally aren’t reported. I write the articles, and use current and historical sources. It’s only there to inform those who want to be informed. I haven’t found that many Republicans are too aware of Aleksandr Dugin and Geopolitik, for example. If I’m in violation of some code of conduct, I apologize.
There was no need to excerpt your blog.
Except that the submission required an excerpt? It’s not “my blog.” It’s a blog I contribute to.
At any rate, I don’t see what the problem is. The information is accurate and sourced, and original so far as I know.
