This is the first close reading analysis of the foundational neo-Eurasianist text in the English language. Podcasts can be downloaded via this link. And nobody is alarmed about the fact that this practically came out of nowhere just a few years ago.
Nobody, especially in the mainstream media or academia, poses the question, how come the geopolitical explanations of just about everything are so popular all of the sudden. Geopolitiie, the author of this quote, as we shall see in the following, would not disagree, because this is what he really meant hiding behind academic lingo. It is Alexander Dugin, the man who turned hiding what he really.
The quote is from pg. While the majority among the precious few relevant Western critics of Dugin focus on his occult and philosophical musings, FG provides us with a far more important thing: The alejsandar thing that matters, not only for Russia but fugin all of the world and its peoples, is the clash of this great land-based empire, imagined into existence by Dugin and his supporters, with the USA.
Everything going on in politics, culture, religion, etc.
Aleksandar Dugin – Hiperborejska Teorija
This will constitute the first part of our analysis. This is for a simple reason: This is not by accident, because, as we see from the above Dugin quote, one of the main purposes of this technique is communicating complex information to the consumer by simplifying, that is: The other, somewhat less common, notion is that geopolitics is a method of politics based on taking into account geography as a cause and condition of political actions, encompassing a wide spectrum of social, economic, political and military decisions.
In this sense, every unit of international politics, i. This seems like a common sense point of view and many Western observers are being self duped into geopolitikr that it is precisely what geopolitics means. Moreover, the idea is quite appealing because it provides the observer with a sense of stability and the timelessness of principles sorely lacking in the chaos of postmodern politics.
It is on the same level with Marxism, Liberalism, etc. Geography and space in geopolitics serve the same function that money and means of production serve in Marxism and Liberalism — all fundamental aspects of human being are reduced to them, they are the main method of explaining the past, the main factors of human being, around aleksanxar all other aspects of existence are being organized.
So, is geopolitics an ideology — a reductionist all-explanatory system that serves the purpose of correspondingly reductionist — and correspondingly totalitarian — politics, like Marxism and Liberalism?
Well, yes and no. It is all that but it is still much, much more:. This is why geopolitics — regardless of its fundamental presuppositions — never became an ideology as such or, to be more precise: Its conclusions and methods, objects of its investigations and fundamental theses are comprehensible only to those social instances concerned with all encompassing problems — strategic planning, investigating the global social and historical laws, etc.
Without pretending to scientific rigor, geopolitics on its own level is free to decide what is and what is not significant. Geopolitics is in certain sense free to choose the sciences … that seem useful, disregarding others. Therefore, geopolitics in the broad sense is a hyper-ideology, or political metaphysics, based on the reduction of man and being in general on geographical determinations. It transcends Marxism and Liberalism not because it is closer to the truth — because ideology has nothing to do with the truth at all — but because it is as far removed from the common human being and as close to the elites as possible.
In this sense geopolitics is neither the science of pipelines nor a method of political orientation in space. Before we develop the implications of this notion and lay out the main, inherently dual, principle of geopolitical reality, let us note one apparent contradiction. Dugin proposed that geopolitics provides a useful explanatory model for understanding the media presented reality, by reducing it to simplistic propositions.
The European Enterprise
This obviously means that at least in some sense geopolitics has to geopolitikf accessible to the masses. How does this fly with his statement that its practice and insights are reserved for the elites? They were reprinted in dozens of similar manuals and textbooks, all of which devoted themselves to the theories of Mackinder, Haushofer and others. He wrote the programme and everyone copied it.
Yale University Press, Geopolitical explanations are by far the most reductionist, the most simplified osnovve the most unscientific ideological lenses imaginable, and as they are solely based on the deliberation of those in power — and not in any way on aspects of reality they choose not to appreciate — the breadcrumbs thrown to the plebs require a minimum of thinking and a maximum of acceptance.
By following this logic, we can assume that media outlets pervaded by the geopolitical outlook would be the most ideologically driven and dumbed gsopolitike oracles of public opinion yet hatched by postmodern power politics. The only statements containing some truth out of these geopoliike are the first and the third, yet they would need to be carefully qualified and extrapolated from the other causes of the political turmoil in those countries.
But almost no one bothered to do that, because the above explanations can satisfy the average alt media consumer. Indeed, anything more than that would necessarily induce unwanted complexity and, as we have already seen, the reduction of complexity is the reason why plebs should have geopolitical explanations anyway.
Because, you see, the will to know can also be the will to power. And the will to understand all is the will to rule all. So what are these foundations of geopolitics that made Dugin such a successful ideologue? Before we provide an analytic response let us remark in passing upon one curious fact: So what is the main thing an aspiring world ruler has to know to practice his craft?
So, quite similarly to Marxist theory of the relation of structure osove superstructure, the wholeness of Being has been reduced to a material, in fact: The forms of civilizations and everything Dugin subsumes unto them — religion, philosophy, art, economy, etc.
Throughout FG this fascination and indeed almost erotic longing for total war shines through occasional cracks in academic lingo:. The Land and the Sea expand their primordial conflict onto the whole world. The history of geopolitics reflects the development of the original geographical opposition to the point of final global conflict. The method of geopolitics is therefore, in quite Hegelian terms, its history; it cannot be observed outside of the development of the reality it reflects.
For now, let us just provisionally define his terms that Dugin is applying here. Heartland is the land ddugin constituting the central part of the Eurasian landmass, while the outer crescent represents the furthermost continental formations geoopolitike from the Heartland by sea, and the so called inner crescent or Rimland — the landmass representing the shore belt of Eurasia. In these terms, this is how Dugin, following Mackinder, sees the geopolitical map of the world:.
The Talasocratic characteristics are visible there, but balanced by numerous Telurocratic impulses. In this sense, the Cold War is a prelude to the final conflict aleksandat fulfilment of the geopolitical destiny that will come after it, i.
Why is that, Sasha? Are you being completely honest with us, isnove God-bearing people and its military hard liners? The reason why Dugin makes this purely rhetorical sidestep is to propose geopolitikf desired outcome and incite his readers to work towards it. If the fulfilment of the global destiny dugni be purely deterministic, there would be no incentive to write the rest of this mammoth book and outline the design aleisandar the creation of a multipolar world a. aleksandra
No, the outcome is not determined. And, as any other messianic people, it possesses duhin universal, all-humankind encompassing, character which does not aleksanddar compete with other national ideas but with different types of other universal civilizations. In the certain sense, those are two mutually exclusive, competing models.
But we are running ahead of ourselves. Victory of Talasocracy completely annihilates the civilization of Telurocracy. The whole planet is being pervaded by the identical liberal-democratic system. Dugin considers the Land to be the original nucleus of civilization while the Sea represents the deviation from it, i. The important point is that tradition and duin are being flatly opposed as two geographical — spatial — opposites, what in the eyes of someone like Rene Guenon would probably look like pure Satanism, because it inverts the order of the principles: In both cases, the defeat of Telurocracy is taken as the irrevocable and final.
The defeat of Telurocracy is only temporary. Eurasia will return to its continental mission in the new form.
In the new conflict Telurocracy wins. Yes, you guessed it: This ideocratic Land power, poised to fulfil the dream of National Socialism by other means — i. In this sense it can be properly understood only by practicing it, that is: Therefore, the real understanding of the true depth of what Dugin is saying — and this depth is not one of profoundness but of megalomania — can be probed only by analyzing two things: The second aspect, of course, is where the stress of the analysis will be laid in the second part.
FG is a book displaying a singular will completely bent to the fulfilment of its purpose with no scruples and no reflection on consequences or indeed on its own contradictions. Therefore Russia, the Third Rome, perfectly fits this teleological outlook on the essence of history in the religious, cultural, spatial and strategic sense, obviously striving towards the fulfillment of precisely such mission.
Therein you have an explanation what this means: Nazism was a botched attempt at creating the global ideocratic Empire simply because it was based on the supremacy of one nation.
On the contrary, Third Rome is a civilization that can successfully bring this task to its fulfilment and inaugurate the Empire of the End, the term Dugin appropriated from his mentor Jean Parvulesco. On the contrary it stems essentially from the Western, post-Nazi tradition mediated by the European New Right, most notably from the idea of National-Bolshevism. This idea is in fact an dutin to re-imagine the outcome of WWII on the assumption that the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact was honored by Hitler.
And, to finish on an occult note after all, let us hear what this Empire of the End would look like:.

Another character geopolitikee the sacral tradition is represented by this color. Yes, this element is frightening and devastating in its external manifestation. Agents of the inner Continent are awake.
Already there appears on the night sky of our sickening civilization a magic Star, heralding the soon-to-be transformation of the Internal into the External. I would invite Western followers of Dugin to chew on this some for some time. And I would only add one additional remark, though. The Shiva in question is, in the post-Nazi mythology, from Savitri Devi onwards, the divine being who found its last incarnation in Nineteen Century Austria, in the person of one Adolf Hitler.
This seemingly failed Avatar waits for the appropriate moment of a Second Coming in the fullness of time. See Clover, and further.
So it is no wonder that it appears to gather support from westerners- americans especially- whose mindset has been wleksandar unconsciously at least- for quite some time with these 2 errors. In Dugin you get the secular New Earth with a sprinkle of pseudo-religious metaphysics. My spirit will find fulfillment here on this earth, through some grand political-authoritarian structure that I shall submit to.
Yes it can be done.
