"Elements", #9

Alexander Dugin



The historical situation we find ourselves in is changing very rapidly. Whole epochs pass within few years, thus attracting an accelerated rhythm of ideological transformations. This is the case with philosophy, ideology, politology, and religious history. This leads us to a paradoxal situation - the more fundamental the changes, explosions and mutations are, the more indifferent the social reflection. Great empires and ideologies fall apart, social cycles and eras of political history come to a close, but this provokes no enthusiasm among intellectuals - just yawning. The historical and philosophical reflections of our time, its axioms and processes is simply laughable. The common denominator of the current line of thought is emptiness. Various prohibitions and inhibitions have disappeared, grey areas gained colour, lost elements been regained, but the witness who could draw conclusions of all this luxury that has been revealed, is missing.

And meanwhile... From the historical plurality of ideas and people, theories and religions, geopolitical blocks and technical choices, something completely new is taking form right before our very eyes. One World, one humankind, one logic of history.

It seems that all sides of the historical process - the worldwide conflict - have stated their loss. The fact that the loss, disillusion and "resignation" is apparent on all sides, plays the dim eschatological melody of the eternal end of humankind.

There is a transparent possibility (almost an impossibility) of a third view to the End of History that has become a fact.

There are a few wild ones with their ideas concerning the end of time, but this will hardly invoke wider social interest. People have kept their ideas of a sunny world in the subterranean empire of darkness. Closed societies of control, where all reality is dissolved in darkness. Sartre's prison without walls: it is finally built and given to public use.

We are all setting our diagnosis on the present moment. We are judging it by ourselves. We are bringing forth the new strategy.

The conceptual summa of the general theory of "uprising from the inside", extremely topical in itself, is expressed in the theory of National-Bolshevism. It is the essence of our strategy. It is all real and desirable and current. There are no new circumstances that might shake our conviction of the truthfulness and ideological perfection contained within our paradigm. But the main thing has been already said about this. Let us now return to the reality, where external activity and face-to-face conflicts - even in the case of partisan Schmidt - don't exist anymore. In such situation we need a new strategy, new ontology, and new historiosophy concerning the subject of Revolution.

Turning away from this indifference and not showing any slightest optimism for the situation we find ourselves in, we place a judgment upon this world, being absolutely sure that it will soon fall apart. This process only seems eternal, but it will happen in one moment.

But it will come on its own. And the mob of bankers, managers, show-businessmen, fast men, diplomats, journalists, analytics, programmers, and movie stars will be wiped off the face of the earth in one wink of an eye. How brutal, monolithic and drastic final. The final of One World.

The new strategy lies in total negation. It is the heraldic message of the end.

The end of time will be final. A rock falling off the cliff without any help of human hand will put an end to the terrible colossus of their history.

Lead clouds covered with grey blood. The wrath of the Lord has made it clear - you must take the material instruments literally, with their physical appearance. One World, the world of postmodern, will be crushed by giant millstones.

You have voted. You have won. Now blame yourself. You're no good even to your enemies - us.
