The Orthodox Nationalist: Alexander Dugin's Philosophical Foundations


Dr Johnson presents an introduction to Alexander Dugin's philosophical foundations.

Almost totally unknown to American journalists and academics, Dugin remains an important subject. Hence, a total lack of knowledge does not stop the Regime from speaking of him constantly as the “fascist-communist-Marxist-Bolshevik-Nazi ideologue” that allegedly serves as Putin's conscience.

Dugin's philosophy of history is the constant warfare between the individual – the egocentric drive of commerce and exploitation and the concept of Hyperborea, the heart of Eurasia. This is the land of the solar “gods” that represent reason and holistic thought. The proof of the demonic is the rule of the mechanical – the purposeless, soulless machine that exists to create products to satisfy the masses (at their own expense). It is the rejection and negation of the organic and it’s replacement by the cheap substitute of the mechanical.

The west has plunged itself into this faux-world since its own Enlightenment, itself the result of the exploitation of the “Third World.” Capitalism was always international: industry came into existence due to the hyper-exploitation of the globe by the British empire, conveniently promoting the very British “Darwinian system” that, unsurprisingly, gave all spoils to the victor in competition.

We are living in an age where these two irreconcilable systems: the organic and the mechanical, will soon have it out in the final war of the two systems, the “End Times” only dimly understood by American “Christians.”

  1. Alexander Dugin's philosophy and political ideas are something I've have an interest in for some time now. But have had a difficult time finding reliable information in English. Thanks for the excellent podcast!

    1. Yeah, I thought that was really interesting. The Orthodox Nationalist really gets you thinking about things in different ways.

  2. I'm surprised that Dr Johnson even takes Dugin seriously, since he is apparently anti-logos in his metaphysics.
