Big Think on new puritan Dugin.
What Dugin proposes instead of what he sees as three dead and dying ideologies is what he calls “the Fourth Political Theory”. It would create an entirely alternative political model, set against “progress” of world history as is. It would not be based on the issues of individualism, race or nationalism. He sees this theory to be based on the work of the existential German philosopher Martin Heidegger, controversial for his association with Nazism. The philosophy behind the theory calls for a root of a human being self-consciousness (called dasein by Heidegger) to be preserved in the world, as it becomes diluted in the modern space through technology.
His visions of what Trump’s victory means go into the apocalyptic and civilization-changing:
“We need to return to the Being, to the Logos, to the fundamental- ontology (of Heidegger), to the Sacred, to the New Middle Ages - and thus to the Empire, religion, and the institutions of traditional society (hierarchy, cult, domination of spirit over matter and so on). All content of Modernity - is Satanism and degeneration. Nothing is worth, everything is to be cleansed off. The Modernity is absolutely wrong -- science, values, philosophy, art, society, modes, patterns, "truths", understanding of Being, time and space. All is dead with Modernity. So it should end. We are going to end it.”
More like a return to the New Dark Ages.
