Global Putsch

Putsch

When I first read Alexander Dugin’s Fourth Political Theory, I was inspired by the boldness of his vision and by the breadth of his analysis. I agreed with his conclusions for the most part, and I particularly enjoyed his treatment of the three dominant political ideologies of the 20th Century: Marxism, fascism, and liberalism. I, at the time, still believed in the possibility of a hybrid solution, one that could effectively marry a robust vindication of Tradition with salvage from the more positive aspects of the Enlightenment. I hadn’t completely soured on the liberal project yet, and like many with a burgeoning awareness of postmodernism’s downsides, I believed that the only thing wrong with liberalism was that it had gone too far.

It is now abundantly clear that Dugin was correct in his assessment: the problem is liberalism itself. Liberalism sows the seeds of civilizational destruction wherever it finds fertile hearts and minds. History has been progressing towards the singularity with some alacrity, and taking the time to thresh the wheat from the chaff of liberalism is an indulgence made possible by ignorance and conditions of plenty. An unqualified belief in the beneficence of liberalism was possible before our treacherous global elites visited the “migrant crisis” upon the European populace, and before European elites assembled to thwart the unambiguously expressed political preferences of the people. Such a belief was quaint in a world before amnesty by executive order, before the cramdown of the TPP, before the federalization of marriage by judicial fiat. This was a world before public bathrooms were federalized to preserve the peace of mind of mentally ill deviants, before Paris, before Belgium. In short, the belief that the beneficial effects of liberalism could be sundered from its more poisonous aspects was an opulent fantasy that appeared plausible only during a time before elites weaponized liberalism and openly used it against the populace in order to concentrate their own power.

The good is inevitably co-opted in service of the bad.

Dugin was prescient and his theory sound, with one qualification: fascism may have failed, but it is far from dead. Necessity has resurrected it, and now the fashy Global Right is having a moment as those conned by liberalism become aware of its myriad failures and begin to seek draconian solutions in response. The masses have watched in disbelief as the Rule of Law touted by the global plutocracy has been subverted by the very same, turned into the Law of Rule for the purpose of advancing an increasingly illiberal & anti-human agenda. We now see that the political system ostensibly in place to express our will has become so pozzed and disordered that it now derives its power from its ability to circumvent the will of the people rather than its ability to be responsive to it. Anarcho-tyranny is the present reality, as liberal elites sic underclass filth on the middle class in order to destabilize it and eventually collapse it. People have seen the writing on the wall and are resisting the featureless, globalist, technocratic future that the powers that be have mapped out for them.

How else can the sudden rise of the Right be understood? How else can the sudden popularity of the alt-right be explained? How does one explain the hard pivot from milquetoast Romney to Trump-an unabashedly chauvinist, nationalistic, and pro-America candidate-within four years? How does one explain Hofer’s near victory in Austria? Or the rise of German shitlordette Frauke Petry? How is it that some ragtag Romanians threaten to burn down asylum centers and dares their local government to blink? How is it that this guy, who made a name for himself by extrajudicially offing derelicts as mayor of Davao City wins the presidency and pledges to keep killing sonsofbitches on behalf of his people if  he determines that they deserve it?

Around the world, people are doing what has long needed to be done. They now understand that if the state is not working for you, it’s working against you. They realize that if there is to be any future at all, active measures must be taken against all traitors working to spread chaos for their own ends. Civilization can only be saved by those willing to engage in savagery on its behalf; belligerence is the only way to neutralize agitating, subversive, fifth columns that would cheerfully commandeer the machinery of liberalism to advance lies and slavery. The pendulum is shifting again towards the strongman, towards the centrality of the state, towards jingoism, towards hypermasculine values, and towards isolationism. A hard reset to fash is necessary to clean house before creating a foundation for a functional future because the liberal values of inclusion, femininity, collaboration, and mortification have produced nothing more than licentiousness, weakness, and empty consumerism.

We are at quite the historical juncture. That electricity you feel is the world waking up from its slumber. From a billion people collectively realizing that everything is fucked and there will be no great unfucking. Billions of people realizing that we must create our own futures through bellicosity, brutalism, and blood if there is to be a future at all. Constitutions won’t save us. Incrementalism and gradualism have been exposed as philosophies of the grave; moderates are just traitors who came late to the party. Ultimately the Fourth Political Theory will come to life, a coalition of nationalists united in their efforts to root out globalist subverters, merchants of untruths, and the useful idiots whose nonchalance has led to the proliferation of filth and decay worldwide. Extremism is the order of the day, and this new right is animated by a will to survive, fiendish irreverence, by an atavistic, pagan energy. And it is all very necessary. There can be no redemption for liberalism.

I’ll end on this note:

 

“The end times and the eschatological meaning of politics will not realise themselves on their own. We will wait for the end in vain. The end will never come if we wait for it, and it will never come if we do not. This is essential because history, time, and reality have special strategies to avoid Judgment Day, or rather, they have a special strategy of a reversionary manoeuvre that will create the impression that everyone has come to a realisation and an understanding.… If the Fourth Political Practice is not able to realise the end of times, then it would be invalid. The end of days should come; but it will not come by itself. This is a task, it is not a certainty. It is active metaphysics. It is a practice.”

Ghost World

Charnel HouseI recently read an essay in which the postmodern experience was likened to living in a “corpse world.” Poignant and elegant. Striking, because that is precisely the nature of life in the West. The vague malaise, the listlessness that is the hallmark of the average Westerner, the aimless hedonism-all of the defects of spirit that have developed as a result of living in the graveyard that is late Western civilization. The unease and the despair experienced by the average Westerner is a despair that dare not speak its name because it cannot; the consequences of being surrounded by death but lacking the discernment necessary to recognize decay, to distinguish between that which affirms life and that which ensures death.

The experience of existing in the postmodern charnel house is a profoundly discomfiting one because there is something utterly ridiculous about striving to live in the midst of death. Every value that once fortified man against despair and enabled him to forge meaning out of meaninglessness has been cast off like so much trash. Where we once found solace in God, we are now forced to bow to the ersatz gods of science and nihilism. Where we once took pride in blood and nation, we are now perfunctorily and regularly informed that yielding to such  natural stirrings make us “literally Hitler,” and forced to sublimate this healthy energy-channeling it instead into the pale substitutes of sports and abortive & increasingly exotic identities. Where once stood the family and the status derived therefrom, there now stands atomization, malignant individualism, and aimless status seeking through employment, virtue signalling, and the acquisition of baubles.

Graveyard values subscribed to by the living dead, who live in a world that has already become a mausoleum.


In America, the Trump paroxysm is the latest manifestation of these graveyard sensibilities. Many intuit that the civilization is accelerating towards the abyss. But, as the average soul is incapable of accurately perceiving the true nature of the problem, they seek an earthly & political solution to what is essentially a spiritual & transcendental problem. The problem is that the culture has degraded past the point of redemption; the zeitgeist of progressivism is naught but poorly masked decline that functions to render body from soul. Everyone-from the  most aware to the least-has begun to feel the demoralizing effects of the current state of affairs and they seek out anything that looks like salvation.

I have no quarrel with Trump. Given the current state of things, he may well be the best of the vast array of bad options that we have been presented with. Nevertheless, a Trump presidency will be nothing more than a speed bump on the road to perdition-it may retard the collapse but it cannot prevent what is at this point, an inevitability. In this ghost world, Trump plays necromancer: a wizard looked to to raise the nation from the dead, to restore some vestige of former greatness, to discover some truth in an age of lies.

All the while they amble through valleys of death, looking high and low for life, unaware of their folly.

 

 

 

 

Red April

It should by now be manifestly clear to all thinking people that the “spontaneous” “grassroots” “unrest” that has been erupting in towns and cities across the U.S., ostensibly in response to fatal police brutality events is anything but.  These are not organic uprisings.  These are not principled resistance movements spearheaded by the people.  These demonstrations are nothing more than the organized and tactical release of the underclass Kraken, fomented by leftist operatives and designed to further destabilize an already flailing society and government.  This is Red April.

Let’s analyze this objectively.  Why Freddie Gray in Baltimore, MD but not North Charleston, SC, where Walter Scott was gunned down three weeks ago?  Why are we seeing “protests” for a killing where the evidence is unclear and largely unavailable, but not for a killing where there the events are unequivocal, caught on camera and aired for the world to see?  To take us back even further, why not New York City? Why not Cleveland, Ohio?  Folks, Baltimore is strategic.  Baltimore is part of a plan.  I can’t say that I know what the endgame is, but I do know that despite the lies, this “unrest” is part of a larger, finely orchestrated operation aimed at spreading chaos and disorder.

A number of the academic revolutionaries have let the mask slip, so convinced are they that Baltimore is the catalyst that they have been waiting for.  They openly congratulate the rioters, offer them support, and affirm solidarity with them.  The hashtags scream for revolution.

Why Red April?  Because these are the Bolsheviks of our day, prepared to turn the White House into the 21st century Winter Palace.  The lions of the left: academic revolutionaries, neo-Marxists, organizers, and undercover operatives are in league with each other.  They are opportunists intending to take advantage of the weakened city government of Baltimore and state government of Maryland.  They intend to further inflame the passions of a restless and resentful populace.  They want to use Baltimore as a launching pad for the revolution that they have been longing for.

One of these things is not like the other.

Examine this picture.  Here we have a young woman protesting to demand justice for a host of young black men killed by the police.  Fair enough.  But then we see something curious.  What does it say at the end of the list of names?  1199 SEIU, a branch of the Service Employees International Union representing the world’s largest local union.  What does union membership have to do with police brutality?  Absolutely nothing on face; superficially, this is a complete non sequitur.  Upon deeper analysis however, the link is easy to see.  Unions are nothing more than leftist/socialist front organizations.  They are “organizers” aimed at organizing the country into a collectivist Brave New World.  Of course a union would encourage violent uprising under the guise of “justice seeking” if the situation is volatile enough to potentially act as a catalyst for a socialist centralization of government power.

Baltimore is significant in a way that the other podunk localities were not.  Geographically, the city is naught but 40 miles northeast of the Capitol.  Our government is already in near terminal decline, poisoned by sympathizers, cronies, and power hungry tools.  It has been sold to the highest bidders by the ruling class.  It is headed by a president committed to a “fundamental transformation” of the nation he has been tasked with governing.  The neo-Marxists realize that they have a fellow traveler in Obama and that they would likely face little resistance in a takeover.  Should the subverters’ dreams come true, another police brutality event will likely take place nearer to or within the Capitol.  The “protesters” from Baltimore will join forces with another People’s Army raised in DC to create a situation that quickly spirals out of control.  Then comes the imposition of martial law.  Then comes the topplings, and a provisional government not too long after.  Even should their grand aspirations fail, the subverters will still have succeeded in bringing the entire country a step closer to collapse by feeding the spirit of cultural pessimism and mistrust.

Baltimore must be watched closely, as there is reason to suspect that something larger is at play here.  We live in an interesting and dangerous time, and for better or for worse it will be interesting to see how things play out.
