Quote note (#308)

From the Atlantean perspective, this stuff is enemy action, but it’s great:

Foundations was more sober than Dugin’s previous books, better argued, and shorn of occult references, numerology, traditionalism and other eccentric metaphysics. In fact, it is quite possible that he had significant help from high- level people at the General Staff Academy, where he still lectured. Dugin did not try to hide his connection to the army: on the first page he credited General Nikolai Klokotov, his main collaborator at the Academy of the General Staff, with being his co-author and major inspiration (though Klokotov insists he was not). But the clever association with the military gave Dugin’s work some authority and a veneer of official respectability, as well as the pervasive notion that he was the front man for some putative Russian “deep state” conspiracy of hardliners, straight off the pages of one of his pamphlets. And it is not impossible that this was actually the case.

(“Foundations” is an abbreviation for Dugin’s The Foundations of Geopolitics, which “sold out in four editions, and continues to be assigned as a textbook at the General Staff Academy and other military universities in Russia. ‘There has probably not been another book published in Russia during the post-communist period which has exerted a comparable influence on Russian military, police, and statist foreign policy elites,’ writes historian John Dunlop, a Hoover Institution specialist on the Russian right.” — the Hyperborean Manifesto.)

    This actually has big chances to be true. Dugin was (and still is) an outstanding con artist that has done great job in convincing people (especially outside of Russia) in his omnipresence and uberimportance. His influence (indisputable, for sure) was always limited and inflated by himself and by fascinated western public who took his postmodern pastiche ramblings for real coherent doctrine of “New Fascist Russia”. His talents for self-promotion are unprecedented.

    You’ve been trying to frame Dugin as alt-right (or the alt-right as “Hyperborean”) for how many years now?
    It just doesn’t stick, does it? Mind you, Duginists have been attempting the same thing.

    You’ve both bet on a losing horse.

    Hyperborean means beyond the North wind. ‘Borean’ is simply ‘Northern’ as in Aurora Borealis, with aurora meaning lights (or gold) and borealis ‘Northern’. I.e. Northern Lights. A natural phenomenon, like the wind, like the North itself. Not something out of Dugin´s hat.

    It also refers to beings of light, as in lightly pigmented rather than swarthy, and light in movement and thinking, like being quick (elves). And a civilization of light, as in one enlightened by information (the word in Icelandic for information simply means enlightenings).

    21st century science has shewn that hair transmits light. Beards transmit energy. Energy is « a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted into different forms ». You get energy from the sun, as is well known.

    http://motherboard.vice.com/read/human-photosynthesis-will-people-ever-be-able-to-eat-sunlight

    What you get from eating food is energy. Which plants receive from the sun.

    ▬ « Life is woven out of air by light » — Jacob Moleschott Dutch

    As is well known by now, differently pigmented races handle sunlight differently. They have a different relationship with light.

    Both with physical light and mental light (information).

    In the North it is dark most of the year. So different bioforms adapt to that. Make more use of the little light they have. Less light outside, more light inside. Dark outside, light skin and hair.

    It´s an old story that topical peoples get lazy. Famously some people just lounge in the sun all day.

    There´s a strain of the Nordic race that tans easily and doesn´t really get sunburnt. I am one.

    Truth is that during the short time of light in the north the sun reflects so much in the snow that one can get tanned.

    This would have happened to the exploratory race in the north. Thousands of years of of hunting in this environment.

    Extreme darkness for a time, and then extreme light. Incidentally they were in history extreme people, eventually crashing the Roman empire which had become replaced by slaves and brown people.

    They made contact with the Byzantines and were relegated into the Emperor´s praetorian guard.

    The British isles they raided and conquered often. As Vikings and Normans, e.g.

    We are thus using a Germanic language mixed with Latin and Greek, all fair peoples in their aristocracies.

    English. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI4QhsYy-I0

    Who have as much claim to the Hyperborean title as the rest of us.

    They are in the Northatlantic sea after all, and with hyperborean blood…

    I noticed from the FP article that Dugin’s Eurasian dream is also based on people giving up their ethnic identity in favor of some pan-eurasian one. How is this any different than Stalin’s new Soviet Man?

    Since you asked. If it´s simply adopting a geopolitical identity then, to answer your question, more is entailed in Homo Sovieticus.

    —-« The Soviet man was to be selfless, learned, healthy, muscular, and enthusiastic », e.g.

    ‘European’ itself is a geopolitical identity with a specific history.

    So is ‘American’, e.g.

    I enjoy Dugin. I am glad to see him getting the credit he deserves. It is fascinating to (again) watch the Russians totally outplay the West in the war for public sympathy. Something they inherited from the Mongols, perhaps.

    If you’re using the enemy’s terminology you’ve already been captured.

    “The order of Eurasia, Order of the Male Principle, Sun, Hierarchy, is the projection of the Mount, Apollon, Ormudz, Solar Christ-in-Glory, Christ-pantocrator…
    The order of the Atlantic, Order of the Female Principle, Moon, Orgiastic Equality is the projection of the Egyptian Seth, Python, Ahriman, Christ Suffering, Human, immersed in the metaphysical despair of the lonely Getsemane prayer.” (from The Alt-Right is Dead Dugin link)

    Color me Eurasian?

    You can tell it’s propaganda by Dugin’s comparison of Apollo to Python, rather than to Mercury (cf. Yuri Slezkine).

    “Draining the swamp is not only categorically imperative for America. It is a global challenge for all of us. Today, every people is under the rule of its own Swamp. We, all together, should start the fight against the Russian swamp, the French swamp, the German swamp, and so on. We need to purge our societies of the Swamp’s influence.”

    The word “purge” can’t be coincidental.

    Try this one where he tells us Alex Jones is the source of all truth. He is doing these in English for a reason. He’s tuned in to altright, pushing altright buttons. Who knows Clinton might be right that Russia is behind some of it, (wouldnt be the first time nazis allied with russia), {of course it was Land who introduced Dugin to alt right, so it could be a commie thing}

    Yes Im saying he may be brilliant but his thede is Slavia not Saxonia, There might be a third way to team up with them to crush China and Islam, but giving them, eastern europe and Eurasia is not a deal I would sign.

    Not sure about military elite, but Russian alt-right largely considers Dugin an old Bolshevik clown. Seeing the West treat him seriously is extremely amusing. You people used to have decent sovetologists, what happened to that?

    I think Dugin deserve some respect considering circumstances and background context of his work. He cannot be understood without taking in consideration of what kind of discourse in philosophy or political theory is possible in Russian language at all. After 100 years of dibilitating systematic debasement of any kind of independent thought he is a significant
    figure.

    Alternatively one can lose his russian identity and just talk on russian. one such example Yoel Regev, more productive way for sure, but hardly someone really can hear him. Russian translations of Kant, Hegel, D&G mostly unreadable and humber of those who can read in original is very limited. In such circumstances Dugin can be considered as promethenians, as he comited his intellectual suicide by dumping himself into the swamp in hope that some one can later use his corps to go further.
