Global 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.”



The Family is the Target

A certain interview has been making the Internet rounds, and it is interesting indicator of the culture’s generally downward trajectory.  In a culture marred by decay and perversion, institutions reinforcing the sublime and the normal will inevitably be looked upon with suspicion.  So when we listen to an interview asking whether “having a loving family [is] an unfair advantage,” it’s apparent on face what the conclusion will be.  The assumption is embedded in the question.  The Leftist Western elite will not rest until society is so fractured and riddled with decay that it will collapse under its own weight.

The interview is a segment on an Australian radio program with the sophisticated title of “The Philosopher’s Zone.”  In the present installment presenter Joe Gelonesi has a sit down with self-styled philosopher Adam Swift in which the two discuss the interplay between “social justice” and the family.  The crux of the argument is clear: the nuclear family is diametrically opposed to the causes of social justice and radical equality and while it must not be completely abolished, it must at the very least be radically transformed.

While this is nothing more than a repackaging of the classically Marxist view of the family as an oppressive bourgeoisie construct preventing the establishment of a global communist Shangri-La, this is the first time that I have heard the view espoused so openly on such a mainstream platform.  This is too open and too flagrant to leave any doubt that the left is bitterly antagonistic towards the family and seeks its utter destruction.  It casts aspersions on the family by encouraging feelings of guilt and the propagation of lies.  It denies the existence of the core, immutable principles of natural law that give rise to the family.

Swift is a totalitarian and a radical egalitarian masquerading as an academic and a philosopher.  To him, rights should only exist to the extent that they promote the collective.  Individual rights must be extinguished; individualism must be exterminated.  He longs to sharply limit the field of “permissible” activities that parents may engage in with their children.  If just one child does not have parents invested enough to read him a bedtime story, then we must question the value of that activity and criticize it as antithetical to social justice.  Good parents must feel guilty for being good parents.  If one child is unable to attend private school, then “private schooling cannot be justified by appeal to these ‘familial relationship goods,’” his concocted theory of “social justice.”  So what is the implicit conclusion?  Private schooling must be abolished.  To the totalitarian, every individual action has to redound to the benefit of the collective before it can be “allowed” or “justified.” Swift longs to deny the superiority of the two-parent heterosexual family and to vaunt degenerate socially engineered alternative models as being just as good as the model that has existed naturally for millennia and has produced the most outstanding human outcomes bar none.  Consider the alternatives.

The superior must be held in thrall to the inferior.

The genius must flagellate himself before the idiot.    

Swift, as a true Leftist has no interest in human edification.  Rather, his vision is one of debasement.  For all his lies however, the interview makes it clear that he realizes that equality does not exist and can never occur naturally.  Rejiggering is necessary.  To be brought to life, his vision mandates that the exceptional must be actively handicapped not so that the mediocre will have a better shot at greatness, but so that no one will rise to be greater than anyone else.  The state apparatus must impose a lowest common denominator of equality upon all.

Thus we see the Leftist utopia: squalor, slavery, broken families, and idiocracy.  But at least we’ll all be equal.
