A translated model of an article by Aleksandr Dugin has appeared on KATEHON, an anti-globalist, pro-Russian web site. (After I tried to submit a hyperlink to the article on Twitter, they stated that “the hyperlink has been recognized by Twitter and its companions as dangerous” they usually blocked it.) Dugin’s article signifies that he has a stable grasp of politics within the U.S., and for the primary time that I’m conscious of, he factors to Jewish affect. Since Dugin is seemingly near Vladimir Putin (“Putin’s mind” and naturally, a “fascist,” because the neoliberal Washington Publish phrased it) and since he has supported the Ukrainian conflict, it signifies that the Russian political institution understands the upheaval happening in the US.
Excerpts from Alexander Dugin: “The USA Courtroom In opposition to the Ideology of Progress.”
The very fact is that there’s not only one American state, however two nations and two nations with this title and that is changing into increasingly more evident. It’s not even a query of Republicans and Democrats, whose battle is changing into more and more bitter. It’s the reality that there’s a deeper division in American society.
Half of the US inhabitants is an advocate of pragmatism. Which means that for them there is just one yardstick: it really works or it doesn’t work, it really works/it doesn’t work. That’s all. And no dogma both in regards to the topic or the article. Everybody can see himself as no matter he desires, together with Elvis Presley or Father Christmas, and if it really works, nobody dares to object. It’s the similar with the skin world: there aren’t any inviolable legal guidelines, do what you need with the skin world, but when it responds harshly, that’s your downside. There aren’t any entities, solely interactions. That is the idea of Native American identification, it’s the means People themselves have historically understood liberalism: as freedom to assume what you need, to imagine what you need, and to behave as you need. After all, if it involves battle, the liberty of 1 is proscribed by the liberty of the opposite, however with out attempting you can not know the place the fantastic line is. Strive it, perhaps it is going to work.
That’s how American society has been as much as a sure level. Right here, banning abortion, permitting abortion, intercourse change, punishing intercourse change, homosexual parades or neo-Nazi parades have been all attainable, nothing was turned away on the door, the choice might be something, and the courts, counting on a mess of unpredictable standards, precedents and concerns, have been the final resort to resolve, in problematic instances, what labored/didn’t work. That is the mysterious facet of the People, fully misunderstood by Europeans, and likewise the important thing to their success: they haven’t any boundaries, which suggests they go the place they need till somebody stops them, and that’s precisely what works.
Dugin is describing conventional American political values based mostly on individualism and private freedom. However conventional American political values have been in battle with the values of a brand new, considerably Jewish elite with robust authoritarian tendencies.
However within the American elite, which is made up of individuals from all kinds of backgrounds, sooner or later a critically massive variety of non-People have accrued. They’re predominantly Europeans, typically from Russia. Many are ethnically Jewish however imbued with European or Russian-Soviet ideas and cultural codes. They introduced a distinct tradition and philosophy to the US. They didn’t perceive or settle for American pragmatism in any respect, seeing it solely as a backdrop for their very own development. That’s, they took benefit of American alternatives, however didn’t intend to undertake a libertarian logic unrelated to any trace of totalitarianism. In actuality, it was these alien elites who hijacked the outdated American democracy. It was they who took the helm of globalist buildings and steadily seized energy in the US.
That is precisely what now we have emphasised at TOO. There are individuals with quite a lot of backgrounds that make up our new elite, however there’s a substantial Jewish core with “alien” values, and generally, this elite speaks with one voice and dissent on necessary points shouldn’t be tolerated. This new elite largely emigrated to the US in late nineteenth and early twentieth century, and the Marxist commitments of lots of them have been an necessary side of the enactment of the 1924 Immigration Restriction Act within the wake of the Bolshevik Revolution. In subsequent a long time Jews grew to become the spine (p. 68ff) of the American Previous Left and New Left. Certainly, as famous in my evaluate of Amy Weingarten’s Jewish Organizations’ Response to Communism and Senator McCarthy, “a significant downside that the organized Jewish neighborhood was pressured to confront—an issue stemming from the lengthy involvement of the mainstream Jewish neighborhood in communism and the far left, at the least till the tip of World Warfare II, and amongst a considerable variety of Jews even after this era. … Weingarten factors to a “onerous core of Jews” (p. 6) who continued to assist the Communist Social gathering into the Nineteen Fifties and continued to have a “decisive function” in shaping the insurance policies of the American Communist Social gathering (CPUSA) (p. 9). These leftist Jews have been welcomed into the Jewish organizations through the early post-war, significantly the American Jewish Congress, the biggest American Jewish group, however they have been steadily made unwelcome because of the anti-communist fervor of the interval.
Discover that Dugin emphasizes that the brand new alien elite has exploited American individualism to advance these alien values—they “took benefit of American alternatives, however didn’t intend to undertake a libertarian logic unrelated to any trace of totalitarianism.” After they achieved energy, they rejected the libertarian ethos in favor of top-down, centralized, authoritarian management that’s antithetical to conventional American political tradition.
That is exactly the thesis of my 2019 ebook Individualism and the Western Liberal Custom: Evolutionary Origins, Historical past, and Prospects for the Future the place I doc the rise of the considerably Jewish elite (Ch. 6; see additionally right here) and describe how this new elite is shaping attitudes by way of domination of the media, the academic system, and political tradition. Rejecting the libertarian framework, the brand new elite favors censoring concepts that battle with these messages (Ch. 8), and it has established a two-tier justice system during which dissidents from the established orthodoxy are handled much more harshly than these favored by the brand new elite. In Chapter 9 I argue that conventional Western individualism is beneath dire menace from this assault. I might add that our new elite shouldn’t be solely alien to conventional Western values, it is usually a hostile elite—hostile to the normal individuals and tradition of America, and that their desired multicultural future during which Whites can be a much-hated minority could be very harmful for Whites.
And I agree completely that Jews “took benefit of American alternatives.” Due to their intelligence, their ethnic networking, and their lengthy expertise as retailers and in monetary issues, Jews have actually proven that they’re fairly profitable in an individualist financial system (capitalism) they usually have taken benefit of the comparatively low ethnocentrism that’s an integral side of individualism. As I famous in Chapter 8 of Individualism,
as emphasised all through this ebook, White individuals are typically extra individualistic than different peoples, implying that they’re much less doubtless than different peoples to make invidious distinctions between ingroups and outgroups and they’re extra more likely to be open to strangers and individuals who don’t appear to be them. As a result of Whites are low in ethnocentrism and excessive in conscientiousness, controlling ethnocentrism is less complicated for them. Their subcortical mechanisms liable for ethnocentrism are weaker to start out with and therefore simpler to regulate [via messages from the media and educational system enabled by top-down inhibitory control over the modular processing typical of the lower brain].
Because of this, this new elite encountered solely minimal resistance from the outdated American elite which was beneath intense strain through the Nineteen Fifties and capitulated completely within the Nineteen Sixties and 70s—the period that resulted in Roe v. Wade (1973), civil rights laws, affirmative motion, replacement-level non-White immigration, and so on.
Critically related is that Dugin notes parallels of the brand new elite with Bolshevik attitudes of authoritarian management, together with “destruction” of these seen as having the mistaken attitudes: “In case you are not a progressive, you’re a Nazi and “have to be destroyed.”
These elites, typically left-liberal, typically brazenly Trotskyist, have introduced with them a place that’s deeply alien to the American spirit: the assumption in linear progress [as in Marxism]. …
Nevertheless, the emigrants from the Previous World introduced with them very totally different attitudes. For them, progress was a dogma. All historical past was seen as steady enchancment, as a steady technique of emancipation, enchancment, improvement and accumulation of information [presumably a reference to Marxism]. Progress was a philosophy and a faith. Within the title of progress, which included a steady enhance in particular person freedoms, technical improvement and the abolition of traditions and taboos, every thing was attainable and crucial, and it not mattered whether or not it labored or not. What mattered was progress.
This, nevertheless, represented a totally new interpretation of liberalism for the American custom. The outdated liberalism argued: nobody can ever impose something on me. The brand new liberalism responded: a tradition of abolition, shaming, complete elimination of outdated habits, intercourse change, freedom to get rid of the human foetus (pro-choice), equal rights for ladies and races isn’t just a risk, it’s a necessity. The outdated liberalism stated: be what you need, so long as it really works. The brand new one replied: you don’t have any proper to not be a liberal. In case you are not a progressive, you’re a Nazi and have to be destroyed. Every part have to be sacrificed within the title of freedom, LGBT+, transgender and synthetic intelligence.
We regularly hear the phrase “on the appropriate facet of historical past” from progressives, the thought being that historical past goes in just one course and alter in that course is inevitable. Right now, being on the appropriate facet of historical past means believing that you just imagine in a future during which White “racism” is abolished and all peoples will dwell collectively in peace and concord, ethnic conflicts will likely be abolished, and all teams—free of the scourge of White racism—can have the identical common stage of revenue and achievement. Such a utopian view flies within the face of the lengthy historical past of ethnic/racial battle and the fact of biologically based mostly race variations. However believing it’s progressive dogma and, as Dugin would say, “In case you are not a progressive, you’re a Nazi and have to be destroyed.”
Dugin is kind of conscious of the opposition of our hostile elite to Donald Trump:
The battle between the 2 societies — the outdated libertarian, pragmatic one and the brand new neoliberal, progressive one — has steadily escalated over the previous a long time and culminated within the Trump presidency. Trump has embodied one America and his globalist democratic opponents the opposite. The civil conflict of philosophies has reached a vital level.
As I’ve written earlier than, Trump made many errors and sometimes fumbled the ball on his appointments (though the pool of mainstream Republicans from which he selected was fully corrupt, and he saddled himself with Jared and Ivanka as central gamers). Nevertheless, his marketing campaign pronouncements have been clearly anti-globalist—opposing immigration (not simply unlawful), constructing the wall, wanting higher relations with Russia, eradicating U.S. troops from the Center East, complaining in regards to the results of immigration (“Paris isn’t Paris any extra”), and so on. These pronouncements engendered an unprecedented uproar from our hostile elite (now being reenacted on account of the latest SCOTUS rulings—blamed on Trump due to his decisions in SCOTUS nominations) and the Washington forms—the deep state (together with the FBI). Media articles through the 2016 marketing campaign have been replete with messages that Trump was the reincarnation of Hitler, and so on. This hostility continued all through Trump’s presidency leading to two impeachments by the Democrat-controlled Home (with the assistance of some Republicans). For the whole 4 years, there was an environment of disaster surrounding Trump’s presidency, and this has continued now with the January 6 Committee hearings (that are primarily geared toward stopping Trump from working once more).
Dugin repeats his emphasis on the totalitarian and violent tendencies of the brand new elite:
New America … insists that freedom requires violence in opposition to those that don’t perceive it effectively sufficient. Which implies that freedom should have a normative interpretation and it’s as much as the neo-liberals themselves to find out how and to whom they use it and the way they interpret it. The outdated liberalism is libertarian. The brand new is blatantly totalitarian. The Supreme Courtroom is now overturning the totalitarian dictatorial technique of the neo-liberal globalist elites, who act — a bit just like the Bolsheviks in Russia — within the title of the longer term.
Sure, however I’d say it’s greater than “a bit just like the Bolsheviks.” Furthermore, it’s tempting to assume that Dugin is right here linking Bolshevik-type authoritarian attitudes to the Jewish overrepresentation within the new American elite, on condition that he famous the function of Jews within the new globalist elite dominating America, and his doubtless consciousness of the well-known outsized Jewish function within the murderous, intensely authoritarian early a long time of the us with its utopian guarantees of making the New Soviet Man. This very massive function of Jews within the early a long time of the us has additionally been famous by Putin and is presumably widespread data amongst Russian intellectuals.
And the virtually determined outdated People, pragmatists and libertarians rejoice [at overturning Roe v. Wade]: the liberty to do what you need, not what the progressives and technocrats say, to go in any course, not simply the place the globalists are forcibly sending us, has triumphed once more, and Missouri’s courageous legal professional common has already proven what might be achieved. Bravo! It’s a pragmatic revolution, an American-style conservative revolution.
After all, all of the globalist progressive crap is about to go down the drain. The outdated America has in a means counter-attacked the brand new America. “If the dominion of regulation is split in itself, it is going to certainly grow to be desolate”. Matthew 12:25 Higher prior to later…
“Higher prior to later.” I couldn’t agree extra. Whereas the White inhabitants nonetheless has political and demographic clout.
Dugin’s feedback on the alien American elite and his robust assist for the Ukrainian conflict clarify the dominant Russian perspective on this battle. They see it appropriately as a battle between Russian sovereignty and neoliberal globalist elites based mostly within the West which can be aiming for a unipolar world with themselves dominating a subservient, comparatively powerless Russia. It’s the world dreamed of through the Nineteen Nineties through the Yeltsin administration and abruptly snuffed out by the rise of Putin. Neoconservatives have focused Russia ever since.
Make no mistake. It’s vital for Russia to win this conflict. However it’s fairly clear that the neoconservatives (Blinken, Nuland, Sherman) dominating the Biden administration’s overseas coverage additionally see this as a critically necessary battle, they usually have continued to extend the U.S. dedication—keen to struggle to the final Ukrainian. And, I believe that in the end they are going to be keen to make use of U.S. troops within the battle to forestall a Russian victory.
