Alexander Dugin All the political systems of the modern age have been the products of three distinct ideologies: the first, and oldest, is liberal democracy; the . PDF | Thinkers, even before Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, contemplated the essence of 1 Aleksandr Dugin, The Fourth Political Theory. PDF | The Oxford Roundtable of July 29 - August 1, focused on the themes Remarkable of the Fourth Political Theory is its emphasis on.
Ethnos and Society. Federal Reserve. They challenged the spirit of modernity fascism did so almost openly. Man is anything but an individual. Something beyond events themselves are pulling the strings. What is or is now. All political decisions are replaced by technical ones.

Now there is a third wave of this struggle — the struggle against postmodernity, ultra-liberalism, and globalization. I am against making of that American Declaration, connected with a Protestant model of theology, precisely a Protestant political system, based on particular theses, not applicable to Catholics, the Orthodox, or all the more so to other religions, to generalize them and to build on that basis.
Hermeneutics as the methodology of interpretation is concerned with problems that arise when dealing with meaningful human actions and the products of such actions, most importantly texts. As a methodological discipline, it offers a toolbox for efficiently treating problems of the interpretation of human actions, texts and other 84 meaningful material. Last accessed 27 February Zalta ed.
His approach appears as constant themes or refrains and is sufficiently evident across the spectrum of his written and spoken works. As is already evident, there is one major hermeneutic evident in the Fourth Political Theory and throughout his Eurasian construct, the hermeneutic of Political Theology.
The key to understanding Dugin lie in first recognizing his major hermeneutical assumption. Dugin demonstrates a consistent Hermeneutic of Political Theology; there is a significant, detectable, and purposeful theme of intertwined or embedded political intent in his theological presentations.
Already mentioned is the Hermeneutic of Historical Suspicion. Yale University Press, , 18, italics in original. Herein hermeneutics will employ the interpretative aspects within the citations above, but will apply them a bit more broadly to encompass the concepts behind various texts. As a Traditionalist, Dugin believes that there is a consistent, immutable, and transmitted Truth revealed to the Ancients that exists intact to this day. Although the essence of the major religions consists of this core of Truth, much of it has been lost or squandered except by those adepts of an initiated few.
Esoteric and gnostic, Traditionalism is also conservative and decidedly anti-Modern. The Hermeneutic of Sacred Space Dugin displays a strong propensity to employ the hermeneutic of Sacred Space as a subset of his hermeneutic of political theology. Woven deeply into his Neo-Eurasian construct are the hermeneutical imperatives of Messianic Russia, expressed in Manifest Destiny terms and understandings, and passed on and 88 expanded as a Messianic Eurasian Mission.
Unlike the West as heir to the Enlightenment, Dugin acknowledges a different inheritance for Russia, a divine blessing that imbues the land itself with a sacred element. For Dugin, it is not only the Russian people, religion, and culture that are blessed by God, but the very soil itself.
Manifest Destiny for Dugin is much more than mere expansion, be it political or cultural. The Hermeneutic of Sacred Space implies a divine mandate to hold and increase the land to preordained limits set by Providence. Dugin is vehemently Anti-Western.
This Hermeneutic is evident throughout his writing and speaking engagements. There is some speculation that this support may signal a belief by Dugin that America under a Trump presidency may step back from the rampant globalism and One World Government that Dugin so vigorously opposes.
Jewish people were not seen as descendants of the Old Testament people of God. In order to attach a theological hermeneutic to the West, Dugin must give the West a theological identity.
Following Brannan, once this identity is established a hermeneutical process can be assigned to it. Dugin has done this.
The West is assigned the identity of the Collective Antichrist and Dugin derives his collective concept out of his Hermeneutic of the Third Rome.
It legitimates this identity. To this, or perhaps from this, he attaches his ideas of a Collective Antichrist and Russia as the Catechon, the Restrainer. Dugin is not about theology as some tangential aspect of politics, Dugin is all in with the total saturation of politics with Fourth Political Theory theology.
The Bishoprics of Rome and Constantinople were nominally equal, but Rome more and more assumed not just the title of Chair of Peter, but also increasingly claimed the primacy. Eventually, internal doctrinal fighting led to division of the Church into separate Eastern and Western entities.
Rossman inserts several quotes here. While the inference is that they are from Dugin, he does not cite them specifically as such. They believed and still believe that the Antichrist has already come and often identified him with one of the Russian emperors. The "Old Believers," a major sectarian movement of the second half of the seventeenth century, did adopt "Third Rome.
The idea first became politically significant in connection with the "Panslav" movement in the last quarter of the nineteenth century.
They saw "Third Rome" as evidence that Russia was historically and even divinely destined to fulfill this task. Poe reached the conclusion that that there is no historical validity to the contention of advocates of Third Rome, hence there can be no validity for advocates like Dugin, of the Third Rome contention today. While there is merit in continuing the debate over the validity of the Third Rome claims, this is not that forum. Recent events clearly demonstrate the fact that Third Rome is a living concept despite any weakness in its empirical historical lineage.
Russia portrays itself as being in Syria partially for the important reason of protecting Christian minorities subject to the violence and under threat by Daesh. Russia, it must be remembered, takes the mission of protecting Christians throughout Southwest Asia as a critical element of its national historical interests.
The third goal was most appropriate for this current study: Observers in the West often miss the emphasis that is placed on the homage to heritage practiced by Russians and by extension by the Russian government.
When the emphasis is noted, it is often passed over as being identical to the civil religion of the West. While certain aspects are similar, the core essence is vastly different. The Hermeneutic of the Collective Antichrist Dugin is vague, even contradictory, concerning the specifics he attributes to the manifestation of Antichrist.
Other background material suggests that Dugin associates Antichrist with Jewish concepts of Messiah. Dugin contends that Judaism and Christianity share common terms regarding concepts such as eschatology, Messiahship, and demonology but apply sometimes far different meanings to them. Ultimately Dugin arrives at the conclusion that the Jewish Messiah is not on the side of Light and Truth, in fact just the opposite.
Who or What is the Collective Antichrist?
Eschewing a strictly individual identification, Dugin applies his Antichrist label to collective subjects. Antichrist is penned on several subjects in a similar way to which he applies in a collective sense to America. An artificial, aggressive, imposed reality, completely devoid of spirit, concentrated only on the material world and technical effectiveness, cold, indifferent, an advertisement shining with neon light and senseless luxury; darkened by pathological poverty, genetic degradation and the rupture of all and every person and thing, nature and culture.
It is the result of a pure experiment of the European rationalist utopians. Italics in original. Arktogenia-tsentr, , I strongly believe that Modernity is absolutely wrong and the Sacred Tradition is absolutely right. USA is the manifestation of all I hate — Modernity, westernization, unipolarity, racism, imperialism, technocracy, individualism, capitalism.
It is in my eyes the society of Antichrist. In the early s, as President George H. Bush began proclaiming the arrival of a New World Order, Dugin began to proclaim its inherent evil. Here quoting Dugin as above. The piece is still accessible through various secondary sources. Here Messianic mention is more in the vein of traditional Judaism still anticipating the coming than the Orthodox Christian belief in Messiah as an already accomplished temporal and spiritual fact.
It is no longer the center of power, but only an exhibit in the museum. However, he is consistent in attributing his Antichrist accusations to things Westen. Perhaps Dugin has created a collective one level above and even broader than the Old Believer concept of a collective Antichrist - a collective of the collective Antichrists. Other material suggests that Dugin associates Antichrist with Jewish concepts of Messiah. Here Rossman quotes from the same source as above. And, Rossman argues that Dugin presupposes that See also: It follows that in order to counter his undoubtedly malign influence on Rossman, Anti-Semitism in Eurasian Historiography, Moss is of the opinion that Dugin should be considered in light of his being an Old Believer, or at least in respect to his positive reception of Old Rite, doctrine.
The reforms instituted by the Orthodox Church under Patriarch Nikon of Moscow in synod convened in were not accepted by all of the leadership. The Old Believers or Old Ritualists — due to their holding to the pre doctrine and liturgy split from the Orthodox Church and were held to be schismatic until anathema was removed in allowing their restoration to the Orthodox communion.
But many Old Believers have not actually returned. But only for a short time — until , when Patriarch Nicon introduced the New Rite, or the council of , which placed the Old Rite under anathema, or the reign of Peter the Great, who removed the patriarchate and gave free rein to western antichristian influences in Russia.
For example, in determining if the Antichrist has been loosed since either or ; or until Peter I effectively set aside the Patriarch in and attempted to continue his subordination of the Church to State rule.
This is the Thousand-year Reign of Christ of Revelation Post-Byzantine phase The contemporary phase of Church history. After the Thousand-year Reign of Christ. This is the reign of Antichrist. As an example, Dugin interpreted the fall of Communism as an eschatological is event. To proponents of the Fourth Political Theory, it is the false faith, the pseudo-religion of Western Liberalism, and its extensions spawned in evil — Modernity, Scientism, Postmodernity, and New World Order — that are viewed collectively as the Moshiah, the Antichrist, of this world.
Moshiah of the World Government is not simply a "cultural project," new "social myth," or "grotesque utopia," but is something much more serious, real, terrible. It is completely obvious that opponents of mondialism and enemies of the New World Order staff members of "Elements" count themselves among these must take on a radically negative position in respect to this ideology. This means that it is necessary to counter the World Government and its plans with an alternative ideology, formulated by negating the doctrine of the New World Order.
Dugin is quick to demonstrate his default setting to metaphysics where mondialism, a broad term encompassing the concept of a single or largely unipolar world, is concerned.
Dugin has no desire for it nor patience with the End of History it would proclaim. Hastening the Apocalypse Firmly confined within the reign of Antichrist is not where Dugin desires to remain. Given this, it would seem that there are only two possibilities — endure the abominations of Antichrist, or hasten his exit.
Riedl noted the eschatological nature of certain individuals and terrorist organizations are detectable in their attempts to create environments conducive to their particular visions of apocalypse. McVeigh had followed in detail the description of a car bomb attack on a federal building that he found in the book.
However, the Turner Diaries are more than just a terrorist manual in the disguise of a novel; they are also an apocalypse.
In part they emulate the narrative of ancient apocalypses, for instance, when the hero is granted inspection of a secret book and in an ecstatic vision gains insight into the whole course of human history. While McVeigh attempted to ascribe a political motive to his actions, there is little to no evidence that he associated his extreme violence with any form of apocalyptic vision.
But, Kaczynski did not write or promote any significant eschatological message in his attempts to thwart a technological society that he viewed as decidedly opposed to his concepts of Natural Law. University of Missouri Press, , pp. However, Asahara claimed that he had also turned to the Apocalypse of the Christian Bible, as result of divine inspiration: See footnote 2, here Riedl credits Robert J. Metropolitan, , See his footnote 3. Nowhere is this more obvious than in realizing how Russia plays prominently in the geopolitical eschatology of the Fourth Political Theory.
