For an ex-politician like myself, the current political climate is so fevered and unrestrained that, quite frankly I am very relieved to be out of the “game”. I have never known a time like it and, well, let’s just say I have been around a good while. It does seem that wherever one cares to look, western civilisation is divided like never before. Religion, politics, money, sexuality, nationality and in every other facet we are more divided than at any other time in recent history. Now the important question we must ask ourselves is whether this has been achieved by design or whether it is merely cyclical in nature. Let me tell you what I firmly believe; it is entirely by design.
Let me be clear at the outset, I am not a conspiracy theorist who indulges in flights of fantasy and believes that real life is like the script of a motion picture. No, I am level headed, all I have done is join the dots, and I suggest that perhaps if you have reached this far, you continue reading as it may just help you make sense of what is now happening in the world.
Allow me to introduce you to someone, his name is Aleksandr Gelyevich Dugin. He is a Russian political analyst with close links to the Kremlin and the Russian military. His closeness to Rusian president Vladimir Putin is downplayed and even ridiculed by some but read on, and you will discover why some may choose to conveniently place him at some distance from the top of the Russian chain of command.
In 1997 Mr Dugin wrote a book entitled The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia, and at first glance, it looks a fascinating read if perhaps a little dry. However, if we take a quick look at just a few of the preferred outcomes Mr Dugin had for the advancement of Mother Russia, that casual fascination soon fades to a feeling of horror.
In the book, Mr Dugin asserts that, despite what many in the west believe to the contrary, the battle for Russian world rule is far from over and Russia remains “the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution.” He asserts that the common enemy of the Eurasian people is western liberal democracy, rejecting the close relationship between the United States, Canada and Europe.
Right Mr Dugin, you hate the west and liberal values, we get that but what do you intend to do about it? Well, while I answer this question you may want to sit down.
In Mr Dugin’s vision, conventional military operations play a relatively small role. He believes what is necessary is a refined program of subversion, disruption, and propaganda organised by the Russian special services (starting to sound just a bit familiar?). He even goes as far as stating that these operations should be supported by a threatening, no-nonsense exploitation of Russia’s gas, oil, and natural resources to intimidate other countries.
By the way, that’s pretty awful, isn’t it? I mean if that is what is behind President Putin’s geopolitical activities that’s quite worrisome is it not? Well, it gets worse.
Mr Dugin goes further by stating that the ultimate aim of this Eurasian empire is the ‘Finlandization’ of all of Europe”. What’s that? Well, he basically wants all the countries of Europe to be puppet regimes of Russia to abide by Russia’s foreign policy rules while being allowed to keep their peppercorn independence and maintain their own political system.
Mr Dugin is not done yet, in his vision the map of Europe is efficiently carved up like a puffer fish in the hands of a highly skilled fugu chef, done in such a way that Russian dominance is guaranteed. That particular section serves up a whole host of worrying outcomes (please don’t read if you are of a gentle persuasion or from Finland!)
Meanwhile, let’s have a look at what Mr Dugin said about Ukraine back in 1997:
“Ukraine should be annexed by Russia and should not be allowed to remain independent.”
Thank you Mr Dugin, I see your work in this area is already well advanced.
What of China? Well, that is to be dismantled – I don’t suppose having Mr Trump whip up hostility with North Korea could have anything to do with Russian plans for the region? It is entirely possible China is walking into a trap.
Mr Dugin goes on at great length of how destabilisation can be achieved in Turkey by using “geopolitical shocks” – these shocks involve employing Kurds, Armenians and other minorities. Sound familiar?
He also talks about a strong bond with Iran and a Moscow-Tehran axis which we now see come to fruition with Russi’s actions in Syria – gone awfully quiet recently hasn’t it?
Mr Dugin also asserts way back in 1997 that the United Kingdom should be cut off from Europe. Again, that is already well advanced and could it be that destabilising propaganda played a part in whipping up the division necessary to secure a referendum and subsequent “leave” vote?
The biggest eye-opener is perhaps the section on the good old USA. Mr Dugin stresses that Russia must spread Anti-Americanism everywhere possible with the universal scapegoat being precisely the United States.
In his blueprint, he states that Russia should utilise “special services” in the USA to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoking “Afro-American racists”.
“Russia should “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.”
If Trump really is Putin’s man, then the game may already be up.
I don’t want to alarm you, but I think we could very well already be at war, a war like no other.
Knowledge is power
If you’d like to know a lot more about this deeply troubling subject I recommend reading “Alternative War” by J.J. Patrick
In this case ignorance really is not bliss.
