Dugin sur l’Ethnicité contre la Race

Aleksandr-Dugin-Cr7,345 words

English original here

Puisque le libéralisme, en tant qu’idéologie fondée sur les droits de l’individu, appelle à « la libération vis-à-vis de toutes les formes d’identité collective en général, [et est donc] entièrement incompatible avec l’ethnos et l’ethnocentrisme, et est l’expression d’un ethnocide théorique et technologique systématique », l’« ethnocentrisme » et l’affirmation positive de l’identité « ethnique » sont vues par Dugin comme une base potentielle pour la résistance au libéralisme.

Cohesive Societies Check State Power:
On Francis Fukuyama’s The Origins of Political Order

1,748 words

FukuyamaOrderFrancis Fukuyama
The Origins of Political Order: From Prehuman Times to the French Revolution
New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2012

There’s so much meat in Francis Fukuyama’s The Origins of Political Order that someone could teach a college class on it, and someone should. It’s an expansive study of different political systems that attempts to develop a general theory of political development, and explain why different societies have formed different kinds of states — or none at all.

Dugin sobre Etnicidad vs. Raza

Aleksandr-Dugin-Cr7,419 words

Traducción por A. Garrido.

Enlace original en

Ya que el Liberalismo, como una ideología fundada sobre los derechos del individuo, llama por la “liberación de todas las formas de identidad colectiva en general, [y por lo tanto es] completamente incompatible con el ethnos y el etnocentrismo, y es una expresión de un teóricamente sistemático y tecnológico etnocidio”, el “etnocentrismo” y la afirmación positiva de la identidad “étnica” son vistas por Dugin como una potencial base para la resistencia al Liberalismo.

Dugin on Ethnicity vs. Race, Part 2

George Heermann, Cronos, 1696

George Heermann, Cronos, 1696

3,439 words

Part 2 of 2

Spanish translation here

The ethnos continues to exist as the substratum of traditional societies. For example, the pre-Indo-European ethne continue to exist as the third function of Indo-European societies. Dugin explains the emergence of traditional civilizations through the emergence of nomadic pastoralism, that is, the appearance, from out of autochthonous agricultural society, of small, nomadic groups of war-like herdsmen.

Dugin on Ethnicity vs. Race

Aleksandr-Dugin-Cr7,026 words

Translations: FrenchSpanish

Since liberalism, as an ideology founded on the rights of the individual, calls for “the liberation from all forms of collective identity in general, [and is therefore] entirely incompatible with the ethnos and ethnocentrism, and is an expression of a systematic theoretical and technological ethnocide,” “ethnocentrism” and the positive affirmation of “ethnic” identity are viewed by Dugin as a potential base for resistance to liberalism.

I have argued that man’s nature is to be the mirror of nature, and that this begins in the European caves. As Aristotle and Pico have taught us, man is, in a way, nothing — and all. Read more …

6. All and Nothing

In my account of ekstasis, I have drawn principally on two philosophers: Heidegger and Schopenhauer. And Hegel has been peeping out at certain points in my discussion (he will have a much bigger role to play very soon). But the truth is that the ideas I have been expounding in this essay have deep roots in the Western tradition, and are much older even than Hegel.

3. Art Begins in Wonder

My thesis, quite simply, is that art, religion, and language are all made possible by a mental or cognitive act which I have called elsewhere ekstasis.[1] To better understand what this consists in, I will ask the reader to consider a simple (or, perhaps, not so simple) question. Read more …

Men first began to paint about 40,000 years ago, during a period of our pre-history referred to as the “Upper Paleolithic” (which lasted from about 50,000 to 10,000 years ago). This was the period in which fully anatomically and behaviorally “modern” Homo sapiens appeared. Read more …

All Africans?

Milford H. Wolpoff, Professor of Anthropology and Adjunct Associate Research Scientist, Museum of Anthropology at the University of Michigan

2,016 words

French translation here

In 2008, 60 Minutes ran a story on Spenser Wells, Explorer in Residence for the National Geographic Society, who is mapping the genetic linkages of the world population. The media are naturally eager to plug Wells’ genetic mapping because it supports the “Out of Africa” or “African Eve” hypothesis put forward in recent times by some geneticists. The Liberal Establishment is eager to proclaim that we are all part of a nebulous mass of humanity without any differences other than what can be learned. The interviewer, a blond woman, was pleased to state that she was “once an African” (sic). Read more …

En 2008, 60 Minutes passa une histoire sur Spenser Wells, Explorateur Permanent pour la National Geographic Society, qui est en train d’établir la carte des liens génétiques de la population mondiale. Les médias sont naturellement pressés de creuser la carte génétique de Wells parce qu’elle appuie l’hypothèse « Out of Africa » ou « Eve africaine » avancée il y a quelque temps par certains généticiens. L’Establishment libéral est pressé de proclamer que nous faisons tous partie d’une masse nébuleuse d’humanité sans aucune différence à part celles qui peuvent être acquises. L’intervieweuse, une femme blonde, était fière de déclarer qu’elle était « jadis une Africaine » (sic). Read more …

Savigny: The Volksgeist & Law

3,779 words

“Before they addressed themselves to the impractical task of changing men by changing laws, the justices might have pondered the words of Savigny, who wrote, ‘Law is no more made by lawyers than language by grammarians. Law is the natural moral product of a people . . . the persistent customs of a nation, springing organically from its past and present. Even statute law lives in the general consensus of the people.'” –Wilmot Robertson, The Dispossessed Majority (1981) Read more …

Herder’s Theory of the Volksgeist

3,502 words

German philosopher and critic Johann Gottfried von Herder (1744–1803) developed the concept of romantic or organic nationalism, a form of ethnic nationalism in which the state derives its political legitimacy from historic cultural or hereditary groups. The underlying assumption is that every ethnicity should be politically distinct. Herder’s ideas on the subject were expressed in his theory of the Volksgeist. Read more …
