For over a decade, Alexander Dugin has been an adviser to Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin on geopolitical matters. Dugin is one of the best-known writers and political commentators in post Soviet Russia, having been active in politics there since the 1980’s.
According to Dugin, the 21st century will be defined by the conflict between Eurasianists and Atlanticists. In Eurasian Mission, Dugin writes, “Soon the world will descend into chaos. The financial system is going to collapse. Disorder, ethnic, and social conflicts will be breaking out everywhere. Europe is doomed. Asia is in tumult. The oceans of immigrants everywhere will overthrow the existing order. The present system will be broken and disbanded.”
In coming installments of Descent into Chaos, I will detail Dugin’s reasoning on “the end of capitalism” and why he believes that “all the wealth in the world is concentrated in the hands of the world’s financial oligarchy by means of complex manipulations of artificial financial pyramids.”
