In his chapter “Global Revolution, The Manifesto of the Revolutionary Alliance,” Alexander Dugin, Russian writer, political commentator and advisor to Vladimir Putin, lays out his frightening and threatening view of the future.
(The) oligarchy has devalued not only labor, but also the capital connected to the market fundamentals, which has been secured through financial rent. All other economic forces are held in bondage to this impersonal, transitional, ultra-liberal elite. Regardless of how we feel about capitalism, it is clear now that it is not going through another crisis, but that entire system stands on the verge of total collapse.
An economic model is required, an alternative to the system of speculative financial capitalism that exists today. Alternatives can be seen in “real industrial capitalism,” in Islamic economics, in socialism, in Green projects, and in systems that are linked to actual production. We must search for completely new economic mechanisms, including new forms of energy, labor organization, and so on. The economy of a normal world will not be the same as that which exists today.
The new revolution should be geared to the radical overthrow of the global oligarchy and the destruction of the world’s elite, and toward dismantling the entire world system associated with it.
Destroying the heart of the beast will liberate all peoples and societies from the parasitic vampire of global oligarchy.
In Part III of Descent into Chaos, I will examine Dugin’s call for “The Fall of the West—the United States as a Country of Absolute Evil.”
