He's the farthest thing from a Trotskyist, more like a right wing Stalinist.
He is supposedly mentoring thru red ice radio. I don't know, another lead to follow into oblivion
Sorry, don't know where that come from.
Dugin was leading two NazBol parties in Russia until he split with Limonov and now advocates "Fourth Political Theory" aka geopolitical plan which is pretty much USSR without communism.
Russia fans sometimes promote him for the sole reason of opposing the West.
Is it worth looking into, meaning, does his ideas have legs $$$, or is he just a kook.
Fr. Johnson (The Orthodox Nationalist) had a good podcast on Dugin recently. Worth looking into if you want to understand Russian/Eurasian philosophy more but otherwise he's not very relevant to us, especially since he speaks in terms very unfamiliar to Westerners and is therefore easily misunderstood.
Was this the guy that stayed at the TWP house?
Yeah we rode in with that guy.
Specifically me and another comrade. To Cville. He said he got arrested and was released.
Apparently Henrik doesn't know who he is.
Yeah he just supports them. He never claimed media affiliation.
I asked him.
I'll pass it on.
Sucks I missed Henrik there.
Yea he seemed like he was a cool guy. just got to be sure.
I was two feet from Duke and Spencer at one point. A comrade went to his after party and said Duke was flexing on everyone.
Yea, father Johnson says that Putin is good for standing up to the banking and corporations and oligarchy and improving the economy. He wroth Putin Populist.
Putin seems enigma to me. Banning Holocaust revisionism. Persecuting nationalists.
Typical Russian tbh, they tend to be "based" in many ways but have a complex with Muh Glorious Soviet Heritage
Kind of like American civic nationalists in a way
No offense meant to any who may be here.
Well father Johnson is kind of an expert
They don't wanna admit Hitler's way was better.
Father Johnson is an expert and a good man but when you become obsessed sometimes your view becomes less objective.
He may want to see more in Putin than there is to see.
I'll have to look into it some more
He sees things very much through the Russian/Old Believer perspective and that can be difficult to translate, as it were
And you may be right about the optimism too.
But he speaks Russian
He does have access to a lot of information that we don't. So I generally trust his opinion as I know very little about his field of expertise.
Yea I listen to him
He makes a compelling case for conversion to Orthodoxy.
I trust his counsel. I talked with him a good bit at Cville in the hatecabin.
Wish I could have been at that, never got a chance to speak with him at Pikeville
Yea I go to orthodox church but I never met him
We need men like him and he should have more of a platform in it.
