Dugin’s notion of returning to pre-modern, eternal verities, sounds too much like the modernist quest for foundational truths.
I might accept it somewhat as one option among an array of post modern choices, but I don’t hear him emphasizing the most important premodern reconstruction of all: our native European peoples (which we, with modernist hindsight, would recognize as the organization of our DNA).
To assert a pre-modern tradition other than that, to cover all in defiance of modernity will not suffice; this is a sort of foundational quest that assimilates and therefore takes us back to modernist pursuit. It is rather not some premodern essence other than the race (what I call the White class) that we should be focused to protect and advance. The White race, as a classification, admittedly draws lines, but encompasses and is accountable to its empirical grounding while it partakes of a hermeneutic transcendence of the myopic, empirical focus of modernity. Also in defiance of modernity, it stays within nature and human concern by turning back from Cartesian and Archimedean notions which would transcend nature.
Hence, the White class protects our ecological flexibility, qualitative disbursements and developments within the life-span and in our evolution.
More, it fosters our culture and creativity. As we protect and advance the White class (race) on the basis of its/our interest, there is no reason for us to be quite so limited by one way of negotiating our traditions and advances.
Just as not all premodern traditions were pejorative, so too, not everything modern and not all tendencies of modernity are negative and destructive to our race.
The key is to gauge modernization only inasmuch as it serves the interest of our race in its various contingents.
Dasein, there being, is certainly an important notion in undoing the Cartesian notion of individual, detached self, but even more articulate of a guiding need, is Midt-Dasein, as O’Meara has pointed out. There-being-amid the White class and White sub classifications (by classifications I do not mean economic hierarchies but horizontal delimitations among the White class much like regions of the White biological Nations) is a meaningful reward and freedom for different White ways of being in the world, in the White class, for those who adopt this post modern project of the White class.
I’ve not gotten though the whole hour. There was trouble down loading at 46 min in. But after skipping to minute 50 I got the part where he talked about using pre-modern concepts like the eternity of God versus liberalisms “God is dead.”
He may be on to something. I’ve read in Chittums CWII a quote from an author where he stated that when a people is under great stress they tend to revert to older folk ways.
This also sounds a bit like the Biblical description of a revival of faith in the End Times.
This man is a race denier. He said starting at 1:03:55:
I liked his critique of liberalism though.
Not surprising, both Hendrik Verwoerd and Enoch Powell were race deniers.
And the South in 1875:
Any critique of liberalism would automatically include dismissal of his statement about race.
Maybe “race” isn’t “theoretically defined”, but races as they are popularly known certainly can, and sometimes do, identify with all the ethnic groups within their race for political purposes. Even if race isn’t theoretically provable, so what. Look at all the pan-African organizations out there. Same with aboriginals, i.e., Indians, with their “first nations” tribes. Ojibway, Micmac, Haida, Huron, Iroquois, Blackfoot and a hundred others – they appear to consider themselves, government deals with them, and the public sees them, as all one.
Reading Dugin’s The Fourth Political Theory the man is certainly states that we must definitively reject all forms of racism and then he goes on to write that those individuals who insist on using only the latest ipod are the new racists. From that and other statements he makes I am left with the impression that by racist he means people who regard themselves as superior to others. I am not quite half way through the book but I don’t think he wants to blend the races or the cultures – only a racist would insist on imposing his culture on others.
“Hence, the White class protects our ecological flexibility, qualitative disbursements and developments within the life-span and in our evolution.”
A little better:
Hence, the White class protects our ecological flexibility, qualitative disbursements and developmental processes within the life-span and in our evolution.
I think we need an operative and consensual definition of liberalism. Simple Old Left categories like Left-wing and Right-wing bourgeois liberalism will not do. Even Revilo Oliver recognized the difference between the 20th century Marxists and American conservatives. Listen to Oliver’s speech called The Road Ahead, where yes, he acknowledges the failure of conservatism in America, but not without great sympathy for its long struggle “to avert the subversion and capture of their nation.” Oliver also had a lot of good words to say about Sen. Joseph McCarthy.
