We are under attack


Or shall I say, "the Cathedral is under attack."
"Within the United States itself, there is a need for the Russian special services and their allies “to provoke all forms of instability and separatism within the borders of the United States (it is possible to make use of the political forces of Afro-American racists)” (p. 248).  “It is especially important,” Dugin adds, “to introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S.  It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics…” (p. 367)."
This is a quote translated into English by John B. Dunlop from Aleksandr Dugin’s book Foundations of Geopolitics, which was allegedly required reading for the General Staff Academy of the Russian military. This quote is on Dugin’s own website, here, so there can be no doubt about its authenticity. The connection to Putin and the Russian government is also disturbing, to say the least.

I'm putting this quote here just in case you have any doubts about the source of modern racial animosity in the US. Typically, my analysis has focused on the role of divided power in producing conflict between groups. This was based on Moldbugs' naive ideas. Though divided power plays a part, more and more it looks like America is destabilizing because an external influence is causing that effect: Russia.

Of course, the enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend. Just because Russia is attacking the Cathedral doe not mean that we are required to take sides with either the Russians or the American left. Making people support tyrants because of fear of another tyrant is an old hat trick elites use to play people against each other. I'm not falling for it. Elites are all insane, and taking them down with decentralized systems (markets, competition, and elections) is the way to go on this.

The problem is that our fate is currently bound to the Cathedral. We don't want to be bound to anyone, certainly not a Russian dictator.

  1. I suspect this is a joke post parodying the Dem party. Speaking seriously, Russia didn't force the New York Times to fill its front page up with Ferguson claptrap in late 2014; rather, Russia took its cues from the NYT then.

    Do you read A. Karlin's site? Dugin has been out of favor with Putin since mid-2014.

    So far as I've been able to ascertain, Russia has little to no influence in the U.S. and visa versa. RT has a tiny and not especially influential audience in the West; RFE/RL has a tiny and not especially influential audience in Russia. The U.S.'s version of the narrow facts is correct more often; Russia generally has a more correct broader narrative.
